Reports: Man Utd Eye African Star, Transfer Targets Revealed?

An African superstar has reportedly been earmarked as Manchester United's primary transfer target after the Premier League giants previously failed to land a Real Madrid star's signature, with four other names on the club's reported wish list.

The Red Devils have looked a revitalised outfit under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, notching up nine victories and one draw since the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December 2018.
 
A large factor behind United's turnaround in form has been the improved individual displays of certain players, including Victor Lindelof, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. 
 
Lindelof, in particular, has raised the level of his game, cementing his spot under Solskjaer and restoring the fans' faith in him as a ball-playing centre-back. 
 
With fellow defenders Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Marcos Rojo all failing to make the desired impact when given the opportunity to play alongside the Swede, United are said to be poised to dip into the transfer market to bolster their squad.
 
According to the London Evening Standard, United have set their sights on five defenders, with Napoli and Senegal international Kalidou Koulibaly being identified as the primary transfer target, while Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld is reportedly being considered as a cut-price option, along with an Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar, Leicester City's Harry Maguire, and an AC Milan's Alessio Romagnoli.
 
 
The Red Devils are reportedly set to do everything in their power to seal Koulibaly's signature after previously failing to lure Los Blancos defender Raphael Varane to the club, with it being said that United tabled a £100 million (R1.7 billion) offer for the Frenchman's services ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
