Ten players Man Utd should target as Rangnick confirms HUGE transfer rebuild in summer after Liverpool humiliation

MANCHESTER UNITED’S need for an entire squad rebuild was highlighted once again following Tuesday night’s 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool.

Transfers are guaranteed this summer under incoming boss Erik ten Hag, who is expected to be handed sufficient funds to overhaul the team.

And by the time the new season kicks off Manchester United’s starting eleven could have TEN new players in it.

Current interim gaffer Ralf Rangnick has confirmed the number of signings in the upcoming transfer window could reach double digits.

Vast improvements are needed in almost every area of the pitch, with only David De Gea safe in his spot on the teamsheet.

Here SunSport take a look at who the Red Devils should target in the summer… but they’re not going to come cheap.

Harry Kane

Cristiano Ronaldo’s uncertain future means the Red Devils could be in the market for a striker at the end of the season.

Kane was on the verge of heading to the blue side of Manchester last summer before a deal collapsed, but could find himself leading the line at Old Trafford barely 12 months later.

The England skipper is reportedly “curious to hear” any United offer before deciding on his future in the off-season.

Declan Rice

Three Lions star Rice has long-since been linked with a switch to Old Trafford, with a central midfielder high on the list of priorities for this summer.

But West Ham will demand a British record £150million fee to part ways with their prized asset.

Jude Bellingham

An alternative target for the middle of the park could be Rice’s Three Lions colleague Bellingham.

The Borussia Dortmund sensation is one of the hottest properties in Europe, and at just 18-years-old could lead United’s midfield for years to come.

He’s expected to be at the centre of a four-way transfer tussle this summer, with United one of the teams at the heart of that battle.

Kalvin Phillips

Another England international for the wishlist, Phillips is close to entering the final two years of his Leeds contract.

And in a boost to United, who have been linked to the 26-year-old in the past, Leeds have reportedly identified Hoffenheim star Florian Grillitsch as a replacement for Phillips were he to leave.

Antonio Rudiger

Chelsea defender Rudiger is available on a free transfer this summer, and offers a cheap option to reinforce the squad at the back.

Raphael Varane’s debut season at United has been blighted by injuries, while Harry Maguire has also been criticised for his performances this campaign.

German international Rudiger is proven in the Premier League, and would go some way to plugging the gaping holes in defence.

Christopher Nkunku

RB Leipzig scoring sensation Nkunku has found the net 30 times this season… from attacking midfield.

The 24-year-old also has 19 assists to his name, and is a favourite of Rangnick, who would love to bring him to Old Trafford in the summer.

Reports suggest it would take a bid upwards of £55million to land the French international in time for next season.

Antony

SunSport exclusively revealed on Monday that incoming boss Ten Hag is lining up a bid worth around £50million for the 22-year-old Brazilian winger.

Antony has played a starring role for Ajax this term, with his 12 goals and 10 assists guaranteed to add firepower to a struggling forward line.

Darwin Nunez

Further firepower could come in the form of Benfica hotshot Nunez, who sparked excitement about a potential move by labelling current Red Devil Edinson Cavani as his “idol”.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle have all also been linked with the 22-year-old Uruguayan, who has netted 33 times in 38 games this campaign.

Ruben Neves

Wolves midfielder Neves is one of Ten Hag’s No1 transfer targets this summer, as SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month.

Ten Hag has followed Neves’ progress since he watched him play for Porto as a teenager, and thinks he would be a vital addition to bolster United’s midfield issues.

Christian Eriksen

Eriksen is a low cost alternative to Neves, with the Danish international’s short-term deal with Brentford up in the summer.

The Bees would dearly love to keep him after picking up three points in all five games Eriksen has started for the club.

But were United to come calling the playmaker could be tempted to move on in the upcoming window.
