The Red Devils are among a host of other clubs interested in rebuilding their various teams after a below par performance and plagued with unsavoury outfield matters.
To this end, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified a couple of players to help achieve this purpose and amongst them are young Joao Felix and Bruno Fernandez who both ply their trades in Portugal.
Reports are out suggesting that Manchester United will likely announce the signing of 31 goals scoring midfielder Fernandez from Sporting Lisbon in the nearest future after Ed Woodward sanctioned a sum of about £72 million for the player, whilst they await positive response from Benfica for their most priced 19-year-old after a bid has reportedly been submitted.
Last season was an experience Solskjaer will want to forget in a hurry due to a lot of lows.
Even though their was a glimmer of light when he arrived, it proved to be a mirage as the season wore on and City rivals, Manchester City claimed the league for the second time in the same number of years and old rivals Liverpool won the Champions League for the sixth time, and by doing that matching their trophy overhaul.
A bitter pill that has necessitated the rebuilding of a team that is yet to find its identity since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
