Manchester United are reportedly planning a raid on Bournemouth if their first-choice targets aren’t able to join this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to navigate the upcoming transfer window under difficult circumstances given the global health crisis.
There have been suggestions that the summer will be a quiet one and that the market will be unstable and unpredictable.
United may have to be flexible with their demands and adjust their needs accordingly in a transfer window which will show whether they’re capable or incapable at the highest level.
Bournemouth are having a poorer than usual season so far and Solskjaer seems ready to pounce by stealing their stars Joshua King and David Brooks.
