As featured on the latest transfer rumors circulating around the world, Manchester United is eyeing several potential signings to strengthen their squad. Let’s take a closer look at some of the recent speculations.
Kim Min-jae, a South Korean central defender, has reportedly turned down a new contract with Napoli that would have removed his release clause of €50m. Manchester United, Newcastle, and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in the player who has been dubbed the “Korean Van Dijk.” With many clubs vying for his signature, it remains to be seen where he will end up.
Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain has no intention of selling Kylian Mbappe to Manchester United, even if Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani completes a takeover of the Premier League club. This news comes after reports suggested that the French superstar could be on his way to Old Trafford.
On the other hand, Manchester United is expected to make a formal offer for Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount soon. However, there is still a big difference in valuation between the two sides, which could make negotiations challenging.
In other news, Manchester United could potentially hijack Tottenham’s move for Brentford goalkeeper David Raya. The Red Devils are reportedly looking for a replacement for under-fire David de Gea, and Raya could be the answer.
United is also seen as a “bigger threat” to Chelsea than Arsenal and Newcastle in the race to sign £70m-rated Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo. The young midfielder has been impressing in the Premier League this season, and many clubs are keen to secure his services.
Christian Eriksen, who recently joined Inter Milan, could play a big role in convincing compatriot and Atalanta striker Rasmus Hojlund to move to Old Trafford. The Danish duo could form a deadly partnership for the Red Devils if the transfer goes through.
In other news, the new director of football, Matt Hargreaves, has started work at Manchester United as Matt Judge’s replacement after serving a notice period with former employers Adidas.
These are just some of the transfer rumors surrounding Manchester United at the moment. With the January transfer window fast approaching, it remains to be seen which of these deals will materialize.
