Manchester United expect to make two signings in the January transfer window despite Ed Woodward coming under pressure for the failure to move for new Liverpool signing Takumi Minamino.

As reported by Goal, Minamino was one of a number of players United have been tracking ahead of the January window and was placed on a shortlist of potential transfer targets.

Liverpool paid the Japan international's £7.25 million ($9.6m) release clause to bring him to Anfield from Red Bull Salzburg, with United under the impression he would cost far more.

The Red Devils, whose transfer business is led by Woodward, were unaware of Minamino's release clause.

United are keen to move on from their failure to secure the Salzburg star, and the club's squad are of the belief that two new signings will be joining them following the turn of the year.

A creative midfielder is high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's shopping list, with Leicester City midfielder James Maddison seen as a potential option, though Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted none of his key players will be leaving the King Power Stadium in January.

Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen seems a more realistic option, with the Denmark international having just six months to run on his contract in north London.

United made a move late in the summer transfer window to sign Eriksen but failed to reach a deal. They will, however, have been boosted by an interview given by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who told the Evening Standard that he would not block Eriksen from joining a rival Premier League team.
