How Man Utd could line up next season with Haaland, Oblak, Kounde and Trippier as Solskjaer plots transfer overhaulMarch 11, 2021
MANCHESTER UNITED are stepping up their pursuit of Atletico Madrid superstar Jan Oblak ahead of a summer overhaul.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in the market to strengthen a number of positions to close the gap on rivals City next season.
Sergio Romero finally looks set to quit on a free, while David de Gea's future at the club is looking increasingly unclear.
Elsewhere, Dean Henderson is yet to prove himself capable to taking on the No1 jersey full-time and United are said to have looked at Oblak.

The Red Devils have been tracking the Slovenian star, 28, for over a year, dating back to De Gea's long-running contract saga.
The Atleti stopper – who is keen on the 'attractive' Premier League – still has over two years to run on his current contract.
And SunSport revealed that United will struggle to afford Oblak's sensational £103million release clause.
But agreeing a deal for his Atletico teammate Kieran Trippier – who grew up supporting the Old Trafford outfit – may prove easier.
The Red Devils continue to be linked with the former Spurs man, 30, who has just 15 months left on his current contract.
SunSport previously reported that United want to sign a new right-back this summer to provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
A swoop for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde could complete Solskjaer's triple raid on LaLiga stars to bolster his backline.
It is understood that the 22-year-old is on the club's shortlist but United face competition from Real Madrid and Barcelona for the France youth starlet.
In attack, United have reportedly been told that they can sign Erling Haaland this summer, but only for £150m.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is among the hottest property in European football, with Chelsea and City both interested in a move.
Asked last month about Haaland, who he managed at Molde, Red Devils boss Solskjaer refused to rule out a move.
