Metro: Milan defender not in Man Utd’s plans as they aim to raise €70m from unwanted quartet

By Oliver Fisher -

Manchester United are plotting an overhaul of their squad this summer in order to try and close the gap on rivals Manchester City, a report claims.

According to what is being reported by English newspaper Metro (via Calciomercato.com), United want to ‘finally close the gap’ on their city rivals with the purchase of a central defender, a striker and a winger. The economic losses caused by the pandemic mean that they must be wise with investments and also raise some funds through sales.

This is where Milan come in, because the Red Devils will try to cash in by selling four players who are currently not in the plans of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Diogo Dalot among them. Jesse Lingard – currently on loan at West Ham – Phil Jones and Juan Mata are the other players mentioned in the report.

From those four sales Manchester United are hoping to raise €70million which would be added into the pot to fund the three aforementioned purchases, and it seems a desire to sell could help Milan if they did want Dalot outright.
