Manchester United are prioritising signing a left-back and a right-winger following Saturday’s defeat to Crystal Palace, according to European transfer expert Fabrizio Romano. United have so far made just one signing in this transfer window, bringing in Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek for £40million. The club’s transfer strategy received huge criticism from former right-back Gary Neville during the 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.
As well as a left-back and winger, Romano says United are also interested in signing a central defender.
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been United’s top target throughout the summer.
However, the Red Devils have not been prepared to match Dortmund’s £108million asking price for the England international.
