Manchester United want to buy the best of British when Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes control of football operations at Old Trafford.
The petrochemicals billionaire is closing in on his £1.3billion deal to buy 25 per cent of the club from the Glazers and looks set to make some significant changes when it comes to recruitment.
As Mail Sport exclusively revealed, United will prioritise homegrown talents as part of a new strategy designed to propel them back to the pinnacle of English and European football.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, just seven of United's major signings have been homegrown: Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Jadon Sancho, Mason Mount and Jonny Evans.
The new approach explains why United want to appoint a sporting director with knowledge of the domestic market, such as Paul Mitchell, Dougie Freedman or Michael Edwards.
United have already been linked with the England and Brentford striker Ivan Toney, but will face competition from Arsenal and Chelsea.
They are also interested in Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi - who has impressed for England in recent appearances - but he will cost them at least £60million.
United have also been linked with England captain Harry Kane and midfielder Declan Rice in recent times before their respective moves to Bayern Munich and Arsenal.
Attention could well turn instead to the younger generation of British talent and we take a look at some of those who may appear on United's radar in the future.
