Manchester United are reportedly already working on another transfer as a move for Donny van de Beek edges closer to completion.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is yet to make a signing this summer but Ajax star Van de Beek is set to join the Red Devils.

Though the manager isn’t going to be done with just the one as he looks to make United Premier League contenders once again.

Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that the United board are “working to sign a new CB if a ‘good opportunity’ will be on the market on next weeks”.

It comes with Chris Smalling expected to join Roma on a permanent basis having shone in Serie A last season.

United have been linked with a number of centre-backs this summer including Kalidou Koulibaly and Dayot Upamecano.

It’s an area that Solskjaer strengthened last year with the recruit of Harry Maguire from Leicester, but now he wants someone to partner the England ace.

Solskjaer said on his transfer targets: “It’s a race. You can see teams building. We’re always looking at the squad and player logistics.

“It is definitely about quality – and it is going to cost money to get in players who are better than the ones we already have.

“We’re just working as normal and sticking to a plan. Qualifying for the Champions League brings us a harder schedule, but it also gives us more motivation to be in with the best and challenging. That will make these players better.

“Champions League makes us more sporting and financially attractive, so that’s another factor.

“We still have a way to go to get to the level of the teams at the top of the Premier League. They are too far ahead of us.

“We are still growing, getting better of course, but we are not the finished article. Nowhere near.

“You need to plan ahead. It is not just about 11, 12, or 13 players. You have to have 19, 20, 21 or 22 that you really rely on because if you play every three days for a full year it’s going to be mentally and physically difficult.

“We are always working towards having a competitive squad and the challenge for us now is to take the next step.”
