Manchester United are heading in the right direction


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made two brilliant signings this summer already, ensuring that Manchester United are heading in the right direction.

Although Manchester United looked brilliant in the early months of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign, they quickly lapsed into their old selves again.

It was clear that, following Jose Mourinho’s sacking, the players got a kick up the backside and decided to perform at their best for their new manager.

United defeated the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur in this period, and even mounted a historic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

However, in the latter stages of the season, the Red Devils suffered some of the most embarrassing losses in recent memory, the worst being the 4-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park.

The earlier victories only papered over the cracks which these later defeats exposed once more – United are in dire need of a squad revamp.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aware of this and is already implementing a new strategy at United – letting players go who are clearly past it and signing young talent to replace them.

United have already let 33-year-old Antonio Valencia go this summer and have signed Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka – both 21.

This is a step in the right direction for the club who, in past transfer windows, have wasted money on big-name signings who failed to perform when they put on the United shirt.

Solskjaer should continue this streak by signing even more promising youngsters. United already have a new young winger and right-back. Now they need a young central midfielder and a young centre-back to truly revamp this lacklustre squad.

Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks would be a great addition to the side as, like James and Wan-Bissaka, he is also 21 and British and has bags of potential.

If United can find a centre-back who also fits this mould, then this summer will truly be one of the best transfer windows for a Premier League club in recent memory.
