MANCHESTER United are targeting as many as ten players as options to bring to the club this summer – while up to 11 could also leave.

United are expected to go after a new central striker, a central midfielder, and a centre-back to bolster the spine of their team.
Premier League duo Ruben Neves and Yves Bissouma are also on the list, along with Ajax defender Jurrien Timber and £67m-rated ace Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
In terms of outgoings, Ten Hag has lobbied for the power to do what he wants with the squad. And it seems he is intent on cutting a lot.
Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Lee Grant are all set to be allowed to leave on free transfers when their deals expire in the summer.
However, there are a few names United could get some money from.
Back-up goalkeeper Dean Henderson could be allowed to leave for first team football, something the inspired form of David de Gea has denied him this season.
Eric Bailly, Nemanja Matic, and Phil Jones could also have exits sanctioned in the summer, with their values on Transfermarkt fetching a combined £16.2m.
But the most high-profile departure could be Cristiano Ronaldo, who is set to leave the club if they fail to get Champions League football next season.

On-loan star Anthony Martial could leave the club after falling down the pecking order and subsequently playing just 367 minutes for The Red Devils this season.
However, he has suggested he will return to Old Trafford, although it’s not clear for how long.
Donny van de Beek wants to fight for his future at United, and the appointment of his old Ajax boss Ten Hag could facilitate that.
