Man Utd chief Ed Woodward prioritising three signings in transfer spending spree

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is prioritising three signings this summer. The Red Devils are ready to spend now the summer transfer window is open, especially after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men secured a top four finish and Champions League football for next season.

And according to the Independent, United are desperate to land a new winger, a striker and a central midfielder.

United will likely go all out to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund to fill the void on the right wing at Old Trafford.

Dortmund are willing to sell the England international, 20, for the right price this summer.

However, the German giants were set to demand around £100m for their star man.

United, meanwhile, feel they can agree a cheaper deal for the former Manchester City ace.

The Red Devils’ search for a new midfielder could see Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish head to Old Trafford.

The playmaker impressed on Villa’s return to the Premier League and his heroics on the last day at West Ham kept his boyhood club in the top flight.

Grealish’s versatility, with the 24-year-old able to play in midfield or on the wing, will be a big draw for United.
