How Manchester United's summer transfer business is shaping up as end of window looms

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first transfer window as permanent Manchester United boss has seen two players come through the door.

United, following the recruitment of Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, are now working behind the scenes on a list of players who they would like to further bolster the ranks – but could there be some casualties, too?

Sportsmail looks at the potential ins and outs at Old Trafford this summer and how likely it is that each deal will happen...


Harry Maguire
It is no secret that Solskjaer wants Harry Maguire in to shore up his backline this season as he eyes a title challenge. United have made two bids, neither of which have matched Leicester's £80million valuation of the player. The two clubs are currently locked in talks in an attempt to find the magic number. 

Sean Longstaff
Newcastle prodigy Sean Longstaff certainly fits United's blueprint this summer – young, exciting and British. United's top brass have, as yet, not followed up on their initial offer for the player, with Newcastle holding out for £50m – a valuation they have based on United's purchase of Wan-Bissaka. Ed Woodward and Co are currently weighing up their next move with a £30m bid likely to be made in the coming days.
