5 Transfer targets to restore Manchester United’s glory in 2019/20 season
Updated on: May 29, 2019 10:37 am IST
The English Club with most trophies in Manchester United will be looking to do their best to get back to their glory days in this transfer window. The team has made all sorts of changes, be it managerial or players.
This might be the ideal time for yet another squad overhaul for The Red Devils, and they will be hoping that new permanent manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is one who will be versatile enough to make a team around a strong core of players.
With some possible players leaving the club in the summer, some replacements are in order.
So, here is a list of some targets that Manchester United can look at:
1. Paulo Dybala
The Argentinean striker has been one of the brightest talents in the world, and even though he is coming off a season where he didn’t as many chances or was lacklustre, his demand is still high. Dybala has the ability to emulate Messi, and he can easily be the person to build your team around.
Dybala is unhappy at Juventus, and this has caused a lot of clubs to vie for his services, but the fact of the matter is that the management of the Italian Champions will not be letting him go with ease. There will be a battle, as he is an important asset for them as well.
Market Value: $112 Million
Other Interested Clubs: Manchester City and Bayern Munich
2. Jaoa Cancelo
The Right-back slot ever since Gary Neville retired has been one of the most important and integral talking points for Manchester United. Cancelo is currently a first choice fullback for both his club in Juventus and country in Portugal. This makes him a perfect for Manchester United if the player is looking to try his trade elsewhere.
Cancelo has enough pace and is also a really good defender. The cover he can be to Sanchez, Martial or Rashford will relieve them from defensive duties, and giving them the freedom to express themselves where it really matters.
Market Value: $61.54 Million
Other Interested Clubs: Real Madrid and Manchester City
3. Bruno Fernandes
The Portuguese midfielder has been on fire this past season as he scored 26 goals and gave 13 assists. This is the kind of mentality United demands from their talisman or playmakers, and he is one on the radar for the management.
Bruno Fernandes is still 24 years of age and already he is saying that he is not sure of where he will be possibly be going. This is good signs for Manchester United as signing him will give them much needed boost in the attacking department.

4. Jadon Sancho
The young gun from Borrusia Dortmund has become a hot commodity as the winger has been delivering in the German Bundesliga with extreme consistency. He already has some competition now for his spot as Thorgan Hazard has been brought in this summer.
Jadon Sancho has got his whole career in front of him and has been one of the few English players who has thrived in international waters. If he keeps this form up for another season or two, a giant from Europe will be picking him up sooner rather than later.
Market Value: $89.53 Million
Other Interested Clubs: Real Madrid, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspurs and Bayern Munich
5. Kalidou Koulibaly
The Senegalese central defender is a world-class player and once again is coming off a solid season. He is the kind of leader Manchester United needs to help out David de Gea. He will be assisting Bailly and Lindelof immensely as well in terms of their own development, whereas taking away pressure from Chris Smalling as well.
Koulibaly is 27 years of age and is entering his prime years. Being one of the most important players for SSC Napoli makes him a difficult player to get their hands on, but him coming to United is a higher probability than Ajax FC captain de Ligt.
Market Value: $78.4 Million
Other Interested Clubs: Arsenal and Chelsea
