Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is setting his sights on bringing in 'two or three' new signings this summer in order to transform his Manchester United side into Premier League title contenders.
United have showed they can rub shoulders with their fellow Premier League big boys this season, with their 2-0 win over Manchester City their latest impressive win against a rival.
However, United are still 37 points behind soon-to-be Premier League champions Liverpool so Solskjaer knows he needs to add to his current crop of stars.
Here, Sportsmail reveals who is on Manchester United's transfer shortlist for this summer's transfer window.
The 21-year-old Rice has struggled for form this season but West Ham's entire squad have failed to pull up any trees in what is proving to be a nightmare campaign. Rice's drop in form has not put Solskjaer and his coaches off as they see potential in a player who can play in midfield and defence.
Solskjaer would look to bring Rice in as an eventual replacement for Nemanja Matic, who is on the brink of signing a new two-year deal at Old Trafford. Matic's contract renewal could see Rice move down his personal pecking order as he has other areas of the pitch which are in more need of addressing.
On the other hand, a move for Rice could be accelerated if West Ham were to be relegated as Rice could be made available for less than his apparent £80million price-tag.
United are in the market for new midfielders as they failed to replace the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera. Atletico Madrid's Saul has been a target for a while but it will take a huge fee to entice his current club into selling their star midfielder.
Reports in December suggested United would have to stump up £128m if Atletico were to consider cashing in on one of their prized assets. The 25-year-old Spaniard is at his peak for club and country so he will not be bought on the cheap. The fact that he signed a staggering nine-year contract in July 2017 means Atletico are in a strong position when it comes to negotiating with any suitors.
Bruno Fernandes' January arrival has added goals, creativity and flair to Manchester United's midfield but they are not stopping there when it comes to adding playmakers to their ranks.
With Jesse Lingard heading for the Old Trafford exit and Paul Pogba's future up in the air, Solskjaer is likely to bring in another attacking midfielder this summer. Maddison is one of two main options being considered by United but the club know they will once again have to pay Leicester a huge fee if they are to land another one of their key stars.
United tried to haggle with the Foxes for Harry Maguire, now heir captain, only to pay the asking price of £80m towards the end of the window. Maddison, who moved to Leicester from Norwich for £20m in June 2018, is likely to cost in the region of £100m due to his continued rise at the tender age of 23.
One of Grealish or his close friend Maddison looks likely to arrive at Old Trafford this summer with the duo competing for a big-money move.
Grealish, 24, fits Solskjaer's mould of young, hungry players who want to play for Manchester United. The Birmingham-born midfielder will have to leave his beloved Aston Villa if they are relegated to the second tier especially if he wants to be part of Gareth Southgate's England plans.
United will find negotiations easier if Villa are relegated as Grealish is likely to be sold for around £60m – rather an £80m price-tag. The Red Devils will not get a free run on Grealish as rivals Manchester City are also keeping tabs ahead of the summer window.
It's pretty clear Sancho is Manchester United's No 1 summer target but they will need to smash their transfer record if they are to sign the England winger. Sancho is likely to cost over the £100m mark with Borussia Dortmund willing to cash in on the 19-year-old if they can command such a fee.
United are said to be Sancho's preferred destination but his former club Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona are all interested. Dortmund are likely to create a bidding war in the summer and will be keen on waiting until after Euro 2020 to sell in hope he has a successful tournament.
Solskjaer wants to add experienced heads to his squad this summer so do not rule out a surprise move for Muller. United's last purchase of an ageing Bayern Munich star did not go to plan with Bastian Schweinsteiger failing to set the Premier League alight during his short Old Trafford stay.
Schweinsteiger made just 18 Premier League appearances before heading to Chicago to end his career in MLS. United would hope Muller would make more of an impact if he was to end his 20-year association with Bayern. His versatility in attacking areas would be a big bonus for Solskjaer as the German can play in numerous positions.
The 30-year-old remains a big part of Bayern's plans but a new challenge could tempt the Germany international into moving to United.
Manchester United's top scouts have been closely following Dembele's progress in France. He has gone from strength to strength since leaving Fulham in 2016 with the striker scoring goals for fun at Celtic and now Lyon.
The 23-year-old scored 51 goals in 94 appearances for Celtic before joining Lyon for just shy of £20m in August 2018. Dembele is likely to push for a summer move to a top European club and Manchester United would be seen as a good step for the Frenchman.
Solskjaer sees Anthony Martial as his main No 9 going forward so Dembele would have to work his way into the first team rather than start from the get-go.
Solskjaer remains interested in Bournemouth's King after failing to land his fellow Norwegian in January. United instead signed Odion Ighalo until the end of the season and the Nigerian is proving to be a valuable addition.
Solskjaer reportedly said to King in person that he would bring the Bournemouth man back to Manchester United one day so he may look to reignite the deal. King is not seen as a top target by executive vice chairman Ed Woodward and Ighalo will be signed on a permanent basis if he continues to impress.
Woodward tried to sign King during the last few days of the transfer window but gave Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake just 15 minutes to accept a £25m offer before wrapping up the Ighalo deal.
