According to Onefootball, Manchester United have identified Ivan Rakitic, Kalidou Koulibaly and Aaron Wan-Bissaka as their three main targets for the upcoming summer transfer window.
The report claims that Ed Woodward will sanction a €200m war chest to make the necessary additions after this season. United’s greatest priorities remain challenging for a position in the top four of the Premier League.
Rakitic’s future at Barcelona have been cast into further doubt after the signing of Frenkie de Jong in the January window. With the Blaugrana midfield already crowded with younger talents like Arthur Melo, Carlos Alena and Rafinha adding de Jong will definitely add more competition for a starting spot next season.
Koulibaly has already been registered as a top target for the Red Devils ever since the days of Jose Mourinho as the club manager. Napoli has reportedly even rejected a €100m bid for the defender and is holding out for offers in excess of €150m.
Wan-Bissaka is a tricky piece with clubs like Arsenal and Bayern Munich expressing strong desires to sign him from Crystal Palace. The young right-back is expected to cost around €40m in the present market but it could potentially rise with the number of clubs keeping tabs on the player.
