Man United Transfer Update July 2021Matthew Rush
Manchester United have been using the European Championships to scout players that have not previously been on the radar. Scouts have been present in a number of games (Patrik Schick has been checked out). Inter Milan is also trying to offload a number of their high wage earners, i.e. Marcelo Brozovic, could well be of interest to United for a cut price deal. Nicolo Barella is now of interest.
The club are also scouting a number of players playing in the French league, looking at taking advantage of the current financial situation in France.
CDM Position Options This Summer (UPDATE)
Marcelo Brozovic – 28 – Could well be surplus to requirements at Inter Milan, they need to recoup £70m in lost revenue. Top player.
Declan Rice – 22 – 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 United before, great option, valued at £20m
Boubacar Kamara – 21 – Top talent, perfect fit for United, valued at £35m
Sander Berge – 23 – Underrated player, has a personal link to OGS, £18m
