Solskjaer wants to replace Herrera with this Belgian star: report

Manchester United are reportedly planning to replace Ander Herrera with Youri Tielemans as they continue their efforts for a summer rebuild.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a fan of the Spaniard but reports have surfaced that he has signed a pre-contract agreement with PSG since his contract expires in the summer.

United have failed to negotiate a new deal with Herrera so far and it’s possible he would have to depart despite being well-loved.

Tielemans represents the ideal candidate to be brought in considering his age and potential though he will likely cost a chunk of money.

Solskjaer though has been quick to identify his transfer targets for the summer so it’s no surprise he already has someone in mind.

According to TeamTalk, Het Laatste Nieuws report that the Red Devils have added Youri to his transfer targets list as a replacement for Ander though they will have to fight Leicester City to conclude the deal.

Reports have also claimed the only reason why the former Atletico Bilbao man wishes to leave is due to the club refusing to meet his £200k a week demands.

At 29 years of age that represents a poor business for Manchester United but perhaps they should’ve tied his contract up earlier to be in a stronger negotiating position.

Man United ‘give up’ on signing these two young prospects: report

Manchester United have reportedly given up on signing Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi shortly after becoming interested in the pair.

The latter only joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer wish-list fairly recently while the former only had interest grow in him at the start of the season if reports are to be believed.

The young pair were seen as the ideal candidates to add pace and skill to United’s right-wing which is said to have been identified as the problem area by the Norwegian.

Borussia Dortmund and Chelsea have both insisted they wish to keep a hold of two of Europe’s brighter talents but Solskjaer was believed to have been willing to break the bank on either player.

The right-wing has mostly been occupied by Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard who both prefer playing through the middle and often end up cutting inwards, overcrowding the middle.

According to Sports Mole, the Daily Mail report that the Red Devils have given up on Jadon and Callum after Dortmund and Chelsea refused to negotiate and so they’ll spend their time looking elsewhere instead.

It makes sense that if a deal isn’t realistic then Ole should move on to more attainable targets but it is a little unfortunate he couldn’t get his hands around two talents largely believed to be the future of England.
