It has been reported that Man United did not sign any of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish in the summer transfer window despite being informed of the club’s decision.

It is also no longer news that England international winger Jadon Sancho is the top priority for the Red Devils boss but an agreement was never reached with German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund over a fee.

There were other players that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in, including defenders but he never got his wish until the close of the summer transfer window.

However, reports claim that he has not given up on chase of some of his targets and dreams of landing them in subsequent transfer windows.

According to ESPN, Borussia Dortmund pair Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland are still the top two transfer targets at Old Trafford as Solskjaer believes they would be great assets for United in the long-term.

Man United made an attempt to land Erling Haaland back in January but the issue with the clearing of agent fees forced the Red Devils out of the deal.

It was another battle with Borussia Dortmund for the signature of Jadon Sancho in the just concluded summer transfer window but it also did not work out with the Bundesliga outfit requesting for £108 million which Man United cannot pay.
