Manchester United ‘want to sign FOUR key players this summer’ to challenge Arsenal and Man City next season… with Erik ten Hag ‘looking for a new goalkeeper’ whether or not David De Gea signs a new contract
Manchester United have identified four key areas to strengthen as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks poised to take charge of the Premier League giants.
The Red Devils are fourth in the table, one point ahead of Liverpool, but still have a game credit over their rivals.
With Champions League football as their target, Old Trafford will be taken over at the end of the season and Ratcliffe is believed to be leading the race.
According to the club, the club has already identified four key areas for improvement The Express, with a goalkeeper, right back, midfielder and no. 9 on the summer window list.
David De Gea is about to sign a new contract at Old Trafford, but the Red Devils are keen to get a ‘fresh goalkeeper to challenge’ for the starting spot.

The report further states that Man United are “open to strengthening as a right-back”, having previously associated with the likes of Denzel Dumfries and Jeremie Frimpong.
Despite Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s impressive form of recent times and Diogo Dalot’s good season, Erik ten Hag is still keen to bring in a right-sided defender.
United are also said to be keen to land another midfield option for next season, “regardless of what happens to Marcel Sabitzer”.
The club would not be willing to pay the £25 million worth of the Austrian on loan as he could return to Bayern Munich in the summer.
Finally, the Ten Hag team is said to be looking for a new addition due to the inconsistent form of Wout Weghorst and Anthony Martial.
It was previously reported that the Red Devils could look to make a bid for Harry Kane once the takeover is finalized.
However, a deal with Tottenham Hotspur could prove difficult to negotiate as Victor Osimhen has also been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
