Man United Summer Transfer UpdateMatthew Rush
CDM Position Options This Summer:
Marcelo Brozovic, 28, could well be surplus to requirements at Inter Milan, they need to recoup £70m in lost revenue. Top player.
Declan Rice, West Ham want to improve their own squad but they require funds, Rice could be sold but he is a Chelsea fan, they are current favourites to sign the player this summer.
Dennis Zakaria, 24, been linked with Utd before, great option, valued at £20m
Boubacar Kamara, 21, top talent, perfect fit for Utd, valued at £35m
Utd main CB/RB targets this summer:-
CB – Ben White, Utd are scouting him at Brighton Hove Albion, valued at £30m, could be less.
CB – Pau Torres, Utd in talks with his representatives, heavily scouted, valued at £50m.
CB – Raphael Varane, outside chance our No’1 target for CB, IF he is actually available, valued at £60m.
CB – Nikola Milenkovic, Utd has scouted this player, interest reduced in recent months, valued at £25m.
CB – Sven Botman, been heavily scouted, left sided player, great on the ball, valued at £30m
RB – Kieran Trippier, steady eddy player, great crosser, competition for AWB, valued at £15m.
RB – Max Aarons, heavily scouted but Utd don’t want to pay £30m.
RB – Lucas Vasquez, available on a free transfer, Utd do like him, more likely sign a new deal at Real.
Utd main RW targets this summer:-
RW – Jadon Sancho, Utd still want him, No’1 target, Dortmund have dropped their value to €100m. More likely a summer deal for £75m-£85m. The player wants Utd.
RW – Kingsley Coman, Utd are interested but the player wants huge wages and branding package, very unlikely.
RW – Raphinha, without doubt keeping his cards close to his chest, mentioned both Utd and Liverpool recently as “Big Clubs”, he is an option but a remote one.
RW – Ousmane Dembele, Utd wanted a loan deal but Barca wanted a permanent transfer last summer, poor injury record, now negotiating a new deal at Barca, now unlikely.
RW – Allan Saint-Maximin, real outsider but is an option, raw talent but starting to show his quality, he wants assurances from Newcastle regarding recruitment this summer. One to watch.
If Pogba or DVB leaves then the below will come into play:-
ACM – Jack Grealish, quality, great stats, open to a move to Utd, wants European football. £75m.
City starting to show real interest in Grealish.
Players to keep an eye on, Utd showing interest/scouted:-
Tomas Soucek – West Ham Utd, (valued at £30m), 25yr old, DM, great on set plays.
Kalvin Phillips – Leeds Utd, (valued at £25m), 25yr old CDM, underrated.
Eduardo Camavinga – Rennes, (valued at £50m), Madrid/Munich also interested.
Dominic Calvert Lewin – Everton, (valued at £65m-80m), Everton might need to sell players soon, they are in debt to £250m, watch for 2022.
All below players have their Contracts ending 2021:-
AC Milan – Hakan Calhanoglu, AM, 27yrs old (June 2021), more likely new deal at Milan.
Napoli – Nikola Maksimovic, CB, 29 yrs old, (June 2021) highly rated.
