Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League and failed to qualify for the Champions League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now needs a huge summer overhaul.

Last year, they signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant but failed to make any additions in the centre of defence.

According to MEN, United’s issues this time around are down to them being priced out of moves for their preferred targets.

United could peruse the list of players who will be available for free when their contracts at their current clubs expire on June 30.

Adrien Rabiot, 24

PSG midfielder looked set to join Barcelona for much of the season but his salary demands coupled with the Blaugrana’s decision to sign Frenkie de Jong of Ajax killed the deal.

Dani Alves, 36

Alves’ exit from PSG was confirmed over the weekend and he is now on the look-out for his next club.

Yacine Brahimi, 29

Porto winger Brahimi was offered a contract extension with the Premier Liga giants earlier this year but he seems intent on moving on. He is a left winger, but he can also operate as a second striker.

Diego Godin, 33

Godin confirmed at the beginning of May that he is leaving Atletico Madrid. However, United’s chances of hijacking his move to Inter Milan are very slim.

Filipe Luis, 33

Luis’ contract at Atletico Madrid expires and he has been linked with a move to Barcelona. United could do with a second-choice left-back of their own with Matteo Darmian set to leave and Ashley Young on the wane.

Gary Cahill, 33

Cahill has barely played over the last year after being frozen out at Chelsea by former manager Maurizio Sarri. United could hand short-term deal to players like Cahill.

Max Kruse, 33

Kruse would be an underwhelming singing but his addition might make sense to Solskjaer if he intends to use Marcus Rashford as his No. 1 forward next term.  He could be an ideal back-up to Rashford.
