A deal for Andre Onana is finally agreed. Let’s take a look at who could follow the goalkeeper to Old Trafford…
After drawn out negotiations with Inter Milan, a fee has been struck and the goalkeeper is on his way to Manchester United, reports Alfredo Pedulla.
And in true Manchester United fashion, we are never satisfied, and neither will be manager Erik ten Hag.
More signings will follow Onana, so let’s take a look at who else could be incoming…
An absolute priority is to sign a striker, and Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta looks like he is Manchester United’s top target.
Hojlund, 20, is a prospect, one who Manchester United hope will turn into a world beater in years to come.
United have relied on short-term solutions for too long, it’s time to invest in and develop a player, rather than wait until he is too costly. Look at Victor Osimhen, he’s out of price range now, and if we wait on Hojlund, he will be too.
MORE UNITED STORIES
The Athletic report United are determined not to overpay, and hope Atalanta will sell for a reasonable price, with Hojlund keen to join.
A very sensible move is a potential switch to bring in Morocco international Sofyan Amrabat, who previously worked with Erik ten Hag.
The Mail report United are interested in Amrabat, who is valued at £30 million, but first need to sell players in order to buy another midfielder.
Amrabat would add cover for Casemiro, while also adding an extra option to play alongside him in away games where a more defensive approach is required.
The Independent report West Ham plan to move for Scott McTominay, which would free up funds for Amrabat.
A wildcard option to throw in. Rasmus Hojlund alone, likely won’t be enough. And putting too much pressure on the 20-year-old won’t help him.
Adding a more experienced striker into the mix can add balance to United’s attack, which will be needed amid a 60 game season, and Anthony Martial is just too unreliable to seriously consider as a second choice.
Porto striker Taremi has just one year left on his deal and scored 31 club goals last season.
Portuguese outlet JN.pt has reported Manchester United are interested, while his agent even claimed he was at Old Trafford earlier this week. AC Milan are keen too, however, and so United could lose out if waiting too long.
