Manchester United could well have a busy end to the transfer window, with three signings a possibility.

United are in dire need of midfield additions but there have been some mixed feelings around the links with the former Bayern Munich midfielder, Pierre Emile Højbjerg.

Cucurella, who joined Chelsea last summer for £63 million from Brighton, is seemingly another target but he has struggled massively since his move to Stamford Bridge.

The signing of the Spanish left-back seems the most likely as things stand.

Marca have reported that Cucurella has agreed personal terms with United and the clubs are currently negotiating the terms of the defender’s arrival.

Agbonlahor’s verdict

Speaking on TalkSport, the former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has had some rather bizarre opinions about United in the past and the Englishman is unsure about the Red Devils potential end to the window.

Ten Hag may well be able to get the Cucurella from Brighton, but the one I saw was erratic,” Agbonlahor said.

“He wasn’t good enough, not making the right decisions, giving the ball away, but maybe he deserves a second chance.”

The left-back looks set to join United with the two clubs seemingly close to agreeing on the structure of the loan deal but it is certainly a risky signing.

Agbonlahor questions United’s targets

With United seemingly about to make up to three signings before the window closes, Agbonlahor doesn’t believe the deals Erik ten Hag’s side are working on are not the best in class.

“Man United should be aiming for the best,” Agbonlahor said. “I didn’t see United as being that team going for players that Chelsea or Spurs don’t want.”

In a sense, Agbonlahor is right. United could do a lot better than Cucurella and Hojbjerg, but with two days left the club have no choice.

Nobody could have expected Luke Shaw to pick up an injury that would keep him out until November, as well as Tyrell Malacia’s return date about as clear as mud, United need options.

As for Hojbjerg, the links to the Danish midfielder are seemingly not as strong.

The Telegraph’s report stated that United had been offered the midfielder rather than actively being interested in Hojberg.

Agbonlahor’s words are seemingly harsh, which isn’t a surprise.
