Man United to copy Liverpool in order to secure key signings – Report

Manchester United are in turmoil at the moment and that is one of the reasons for Liverpool to rejoice apart from being on top of the Premier League table.

The Daily Mail have mentioned that the reigning European Champions have been using technology to lure major signings for quite some time. It is stated that the Reds took the help of technology to recruit Philippe Coutinho and the Brazilian international proved to be brilliant at Anfield.

Now, the British news source claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Man Utd to join the client list of Madrid-based company Driblab as the Norwegian looks to technology to secure key signings.

Jurgen Klopp tracked the Dutch international in the summer transfer window of 2017 but failed to lure him.

The Daily Mail claim that Man United have learned how Liverpool waited to lure Van Dijk and similarly, Solskjaer does not want to panic buy. It is mentioned that the Red Devils are following Lyon’s Moussa Dembele and they are prepared to wait for the right time to get his signing done.
