Former Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was backed heavily in the transfer market but some of his signings failed to live up to expectations despite the big money spent.

According to Daily Express, Manchester United will look to undo some of Solskjaer’s transfer mistakes by replacing at least two players signed by Solskjaer.

The Red Devils are set to sign a replacement for club captain Harry Maguire and are already in talks to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji.

Maguire joined the Red Devils in 2019 from Leicester City in a deal worth £80million, but he has never met the expectations of that price tag.

The Englishman has struggled with playing high-pressing football with a high line, exposing his biggest weakness: his pace.

Another player the club reportedly wants to replace is right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Wan-Bissaka arrived for £50million from Crystal Palace in 2019 as well but after a solid start, has fallen way down the pecking order.

Wan-Bissaka’s inability to be a threat in the final third has seen the right-back come under criticism and has lost his place in the starting XI to Diogo Dalot.
