Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants as many as five new players next season, including a right-back, a center-back, and a versatile forward, according to The Telegraph's James Ducker.

Solskjaer could ask for a pair of midfielders if the club allows Juan Mata and Ander Herrera - who are both out of contract in the summer - to leave on free transfers.

Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian, and Antonio Valencia are likely to join Mata and Herrera out the door, Ducker adds.

The mass exodus would pave the way for a new slate of signings, with Borussia Dortmund standout Jadon Sancho and Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka apparently leading Solskjaer's list of summer targets. Real Madrid's Raphael Varane and Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly reportedly remain on United's radar, though they'd carry heavier transfer fees.

Despite the anticipated turnover, United appear to have no intention of signing a new goalkeeper in the summer; negotiations with David De Gea are ongoing, according to Ducker.

It remains to be seen, though, whether United will satisfy the quick-footed Spaniard's wishes. De Gea, whose current contract expires at the end of next season, has reportedly demanded a deal similar to Alexis Sanchez's £500,000 a week.
