With just four days left of the Summer transfer window, it is quite clear that Manchester United are crying out for squad reinforcements with there being potentially three positions of priority for United.
A left-back, another midfielder and potentially a centre-back could well be targeted by Erik ten Hag although they will have to get a move on before the window slams shut.
Here are four options that United could pursue in the final few days of the transfer window before the window slams shut.
1. Amadou Onana
The Everton midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford although the fee that the 21-year-old midfielder would demand may well be prohibitive for United this summer.
2. Sofyan Amrabat
Despite the Moroccan being linked so much with United to the point where the links are becoming so tedious that the deal has lost all of its excitement.
But looking at the actual player United would be getting, then there is certainly cause for excitement. A midfielder who is superb on the ball and isn’t afraid to crunch into a 50/50 tackle.

3. Marc Cucurella
The Spanish left-back has only come into the reckoning as a result of Luke Shaw’s injury, which could keep him out until November.
However, the Spaniard could well be the best option for Ten Hag. The left-back, who is the most expensive defender in the game at £63 million, at 25, has the potential to grow and was superb for Brighton under Graham Potter.
Cucurella may well have had a poor season at Stamford Bridge but his quality is obvious, obvious to the point that Pep Guardiola was keen on him to join Manchester City.
4. Jean-Clair Todibo
The French defender has been heavily linked with United this summer. The OGC Nice defender could well be available for a fee in the region of £35 million.
With the potential loss of Raphael Varane to injury, the former Barcelona defender would provide superb backup to the World Cup-winning defender.
United would need to sell Harry Maguire for a fee in the region of £30 million before Todibo could be targeted but nevertheless, the Frenchman would be a welcome addition at Old Trafford.
