As the summer transfer window approaches, Manchester United is gearing up for some significant changes. Under the new ownership of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the club is expected to make bold moves to strengthen its squad.

Here are five players that the Red Devils could sign this summer, according to the latest reports and odds.

Michael Olise: Crystal Palace - 15/8 (aggregated odds)

Michael Olise has emerged as a top target for Manchester United. Despite an injury-shortened season, Olise impressed at Crystal Palace with his creativity and flair, especially in the last few games alongside Eze and Mateta upfront.

His connections to Manchester, stemming from his boyhood support for the club, could influence his decision.

Olise is seen as a strong candidate to add depth to United’s attacking options, although he may well need to consider what happened to Wilfried Zaha when he made the move up north.

Pedro Neto: Wolverhampton Wanderers - 8/1 (aggregated odds)

Pedro Neto is another winger on Manchester United's radar. Neto had a commendable season with Wolves, although the side itself had a fairly unremarkable season overall, finishing 14th, so Neto might be looking for a new challenge.

Although Manchester City reportedly leads the race for his signature, United remains in contention.

Neto could provide a dynamic option on the flanks if Olise's move doesn't materialise.

Victor Osimhen: Napoli - 14/1 (aggregated odds)

Napoli's prolific striker Victor Osimhen is a name that excites many Manchester United fans.

With Napoli's president confirming Osimhen's likely departure, the Nigerian forward is set for a high-profile transfer.

Despite Paris Saint-Germain being the favourites to get his signature, United's interest persists. Osimhen's goal-scoring prowess could be the solution to United’s attacking woes.

Viktor Gyokeres: Sporting Lisbon - 12/1 (aggregated odds)

Since joining Sporting Lisbon, Viktor Gyokeres has had an outstanding season, netting 43 goals in 49 appearances.

His performance has caught the eye of several top clubs, including Manchester United.

Although Sporting is keen to retain him, United might make a move if they can negotiate a deal. Gyokeres' physical presence and finishing ability make him a valuable target.

Jarrad Branthwaite: Everton - 8/13 FAV (aggregated odds)

Everton's young centre-back Jarrad Branthwaite is also on Manchester United's wishlist.

With Everton's financial struggles, Branthwaite is likely to be sold this summer. United could secure his services at a reasonable price.

Adding Branthwaite would bolster United’s defensive options, providing a promising partner for the likes of Lisandro Martinez.
