Manchester United are expected to make a splash in the summer transfer window. The club made some encouraging progress this season but ultimately, were unable to win trophies once again.
They had a brilliant chance to win their first piece of silverware under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they took on Villarreal in the Europa League final. But the match ended with a disappointing defeat and it also meant that they are now without a trophy in four seasons. That is something that needs to change as quickly as possible.
As reported by the Daily Star, Manchester United are in the transfer market for four new signings this summer and none of them are strikers.
This is surprising due to the fact that there is not much depth up front for the Red Devils and many were expecting them to go after another striker in the summer transfer window. But it looks like that might not be the case.

Manchester United reportedly not looking to sign a striker
Edinson Cavani has been in brilliant form in recent months and is one of the best strikers in the Premier League at the moment. Thus, him signing a new contract would have been a massive boost to the Red Devils.
But, he is 34 years of age and is not a long-term solution for the club. Other than him, Anthony Martial is also capable of playing at striker but he has not enjoyed a good season. Other than that, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood could prove to be options if the situation calls for it while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have an eye on bring through a few promising academy prospects as well.
Even then, the club would have been expected to sign a striker in the summer and it remains to be seen how things turn out over the course of the next few months.
