Manchester United may sign up to six big names this summer, according to the latest odds.
Erik ten Hag is expected to ignite a squad revamp this summer after a dismal campaign at Old Trafford. Midfielders are top of the priority list with four current central players set to leave next month, including Paul Pogba.
Ten Hag is said to have a transfer budget of £ 120m, which he will have to spend wisely. Now, bookies have outlined which players they are favorites to land in the close-season.

Sky Bet have listed a host of stars who United are supposedly leading the race for. Here they are in rank order, from most to least likely.
Frenkie de Jong – 4/6
The Barcelona midfielder has been tipped to revive ties with former Ajax boss Ten Hag. The pair have a good relationship from their time in their homeland and the new United boss is hoping to convince the Netherlands international to make the flight over to England.
Darwin Nunez – 9/4
A number of European giants are after Nunez, but it is United who lead the way. The striker netted 34 times for Benfica this season and is viewed by some as the perfect strike partner for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Pau Torres – 3/1
The Villarreal center-back has been closely linked with a switch to Old Trafford. Torres wished to remain in Spain after his club’s triumph over United in last year’s Europa League final, but with The Yellow Submarine only managing to finish seventh in La Liga, his mindset has reportedly changed.
Declan Rice – 3/1
Rice looks set to stay at West Ham for another year but if he does make an unexpected move away, United are his most likely destination. However, the Hammers have slapped a £ 150m valuation of their main man, which will probably be enough to put off Ten Hag.
Richarlison – 6/1
The Everton hero will likely be looking for a move away this summer despite his club’s Premier League survival. His odds may be slightly higher due to him not being as much of a priority for United, rather than his reluctance to move to Old Trafford.
Harry Kane – 6/1
Like Rice, Kane is not expected to leave his club. With Erling Haaland now a Manchester City player and Tottenham in the Champions League, there is very little reason why he would want to force an exit.
