Man Utd boss Solskjaer to focus on 2 positions this summer

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has plans for two key signings this summer.

United have pulled back from moving for a new winger.

Instead, the Athletic reports United are focused on two key areas to strengthen in the summer.

Solskjaer wants to recruit at centre-back and striker with a massive outlay in one position likely to mean a smaller transfer fee for the other.

There remain question marks over Harry Maguire's partnerships at the back this season and his combination with Victor Lindelof in particular has been criticised.

United will support the manager's desire to improve his squad but will not fund massive spending spree in light of the financial hit taken over the UK's stadium lockout.
