Manchester United have four Premier League wildcard transfer options in winger hunt


Manchester United look set to delve back into the transfer market this summer with a right-winger still high on their list of priorities. The club are expected to re-explore the signing of former target Jadon Sancho but there are four other options much closer to home that could entice United. Here is a look at four Premier League wingers that could fit the bill for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer…

Harvey Barnes – Leicester

Admittedly, Barnes is more suited to the left side of attack which doesn’t really suit United’s current plans.

Marcus Rashford has made the role his own but he still has the occasional stint thorough the middle.

Most of United’s forward line is currently interchangeable though and Barnes’ productivity cannot be ignored.

He has nine goals and four assists to his name in the Premier League this season and those are impressive figures for a 23-year-old.

Barnes would represent a wise investment from United, particularly as a home-grown player.

Pedro Neto – Wolves

Pedro Neto has been one of the standout young players in the Premier League this season.

His tremendous development under Nuno Espirito Santo is set to earn Wolves a big payday in the future.

Again, Neto is predominately a left-winger but can also play on the right and cut in on his left foot.

The Portuguese star looks set to land at a Big Six club in the near future and United should consider a move before it’s too late.

Raphinha – Leeds

It’s clear Leeds may have a fight on their hands to keep the Brazilian, who has hit the ground running on English shores.

The winger has had been superb under Marcelo Bielsa and would slot on the right side of United’s attack with ease.

Bruno Fernandes has also played with him at Sporting and the pair have a close bond that could be reignited at Old Trafford.

Leeds paid £17m for Raphinha and have no plans to try and cash in but United could look to test the waters if they decide against signing Sancho.
