Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to sign up to five players to bolster his Manchester United squad in the summer, according to a report in England.

The Telegraph is reporting that the Red Devils are preparing for their biggest summer overhaul since Louis van Gaal was in charge in 2015.

The same article states that Solskjaer is eager to sign a right-back, a centre-half and a centre-forward to improve the options in his squad.

According to the same report, the Manchester United manager may look to sign one or two midfielders depending on whether Ander Herrera or Juan Mata stay or go in the summer.

The Telegraph adds that the 20-time English champions are determined to keep hold of Spain’s number one goalkeeper David De Gea despite recent links to Real Madrid.

Solskjaer is also eager to give some of the club’s promising youth player a chance to shine in the first team, according to the same story.

Manchester United suffered a 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Tuesday night after Chris Smalling’s second-half own goal proved decisive.

The Red Devils are in sixth place in the Premier League table and two points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal in the race to secure a spot in the Champions League.
