The summer rebuild at Old Trafford is underway, with Manchester United in desperate need of a squad overhaul.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have already dismissed a Premier League title challenge next season as “miraculous” but that hasn’t stopped the Norwegian making the first signing of his tenure, bringing in flying winger Daniel James from Swansea City.

The Wales international should inject some much-needed pace into a United side that stumbled to a sixth-place finish last term, ending the season with a run of eight defeats in 12 games across all competitions.

But what should Manchester United do next? The Red Devils face an uncertain transfer window, with the likes of David de Gea and Paul Pogba linked with moves away from the club, while a whole host of players are being suggested as potential signings. And Wayne Rooney is adamant that even the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi would not necessarily solve United’s problems.

One thing that is for sure is this United squad needs massive surgery if they are to get back to where their fanbase believes they deserve to be.

At Squawka, we’ve spoken to fans, journalists and the people involved to get their view on what is sure to be a helter-skelter summer for those on the red side of Manchester.
