Manchester United have been linked with a host of transfer targets this summer – but who is on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward’s shortlist?

Manchester United transfer news is in full swing with the summer transfer window open. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping chief executive Ed Woodward can deliver his targets as the Norwegian looks to continue the overhaul of his squad.

Who is on Man Utd’s transfer shortlist?

Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund

The Sancho saga has the potential to drag on throughout the window.

The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time and is thought to be Solskjaer’s top target this summer.

And while Sancho appears to be keen on the switch, Dortmund and United are yet to come to an agreement on the transfer fee.

The German side are holding firm at £108million but United appear reluctant to pay that much up front.

Ousmane Dembele, Barcelona

Dembele has reportedly been lined up as an alternative for United should they fail to get a deal for Sancho over the line.

The 23-year-old left Dortmund for Barcelona in 2017 for a fee that could rise to £135.5m.

The Red Devils are said to have held ‘informal’ discussions about Dembele, although Sancho remains their top priority.

Jack Grealish, Aston Villa

Grealish is another player who has been linked with United in recent months.

The 24-year-old played an instrumental role last season in keeping Villa in the Premier League.

Solskjaer is said to be a fan of the midfielder and the player himself would welcome a move to Old Trafford.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Napoli

With all the talk around Sancho this summer, Solskjaer is also reportedly keen to bolster his defence.

The Norwegian is said to be a long-term admirer of Koulibaly and believes he would be an ideal partner for Harry Maguire.

However, with the centre-back being valued in the region of £70m, United may be priced out of move in this window.

Gabriel Magalhaes, Lille

Another defensive target United are reportedly looking at is Gabriel Magalhaes.

Solskjaer would like to add a left-sided centre-back to his ranks and Magalhaes is said to be of interest.

The Brazilian deliver a number of assured performances for Lille last season.

However, United will have to compete with Arsenal for his signature.
