Manchester United are in the market for four new signings this summer – and none of them are strikers.
The Red Devils are ready to splash the cash after falling short both at home and in Europe this season.
United finished runners-up to Man City in the Premier League and lost the Europa League final to Villarreal.
Ole Gunner Solskjaer wants to turn his side into winners, and that means recruiting well in key areas.
Last month he said: “If you want to take up the challenge with them we need to strengthen our squad.”
Strengthen it he surely will, with Solskjaer targeting four new signings at Old Trafford over the summer.
Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier could be the first name through the door during the rebuild.
United are long-term admirers of the England international, who is keen on a return to the Premier League.
Trippier has two years left on his current deal at the Metropolitan but cash-strapped Atletico are open to offers.
Transfer chiefs are also working on a move for wantaway Real Madrid centre-half Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman is another player who has courted United's interest before without moving to Old Trafford.
He has just 12 months left on his contract and could be sold this summer instead of being allowed to leave on a free next year.
Solskjaer is also keen on a move for Borussia Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho – but only if the price is right.

This season’s Premier League runners-up were quoted a price of £108million for his services last summer.
That figure has dropped since, but the United bean counters will not be taken for a ride if the fee is too much.
They are also expected to sign goalkeeper Tom Heaton on a free from Aston Villa when his contract expires later this month.
