Man Utd told price around £30 million to sign AS Monaco Youssouf Fofana

According to reports, Manchester United have decided on their potential substitute for Brazil international Casemiro, who is a target for Saudi Pro League teams. In 2022, the Red Devils signed Casemiro from Real Madrid for around £60 million. Although the 32-year-old’s contract is set to expire in 2026, transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that he will be leaving Manchester United this summer.

Youssouf Fofana has chosen to leave Monaco this summer, and according to Le 10 Sport, the Red Devils are making a play for him. Manchester United will reportedly need to spend roughly £30 million to get Fofana. Last year, the Frenchman was connected to a transfer to the Premier League. Nottingham Forest and Fulham were interested in him, but he chose to stay with Monaco.

Fofana would be a good replacement of Casemiro

Both Sofyan Amrabat and Casemiro are allegedly scheduled to depart the team this summer in order to play in the Saudi Pro League. At Old Trafford, United looks to the midfield market to find a replacement for England’s Kobbie Mainoo in the middle of the park.

Fofana would be a smart addition if they were looking to add a young defensive midfielder to their roster. In the French first division, the 25-year-old is among the greatest holding midfielders. He recorded a remarkable 7.2 recoveries per game in addition to two tackles gained throughout the most recent campaign. Additionally, 50% of Fofana’s ground and air battles were won.

According to the Colombian version of AS, Manchester United is among the teams hoping to capture Bologna centre-back Jhon Lucumi this summer. Raphael Varane’s contract is scheduled to expire at the end of the month therefore, the Red Devils are looking to add a new centre defender.

According to AS, Lucumi has become available for Manchester United. However, Bournemouth, AC Milan, and Napoli are also interested in signing the 25-year-old central defender, so Manchester United is not the only team after him. Bologna is willing to let go of him for £15 million, but if the Premier League shows interest, that amount may rise. Lucumi’s focus on representing Colombia at the Copa America may cause a delay in an agreement.

Defender Jhon Lucumi would be brilliant bargain deal

With Bologna, the 25-year-old enjoyed an incredible 2023–24 season. Bologna qualified for the Champions League for the first time in sixty years because of Lucumi’s ten division clean sheets. Lucumi is looking forward to a new challenge, despite the club’s success. We believe that, given the rumoured price, he would be a fantastic steal for United to sign.

United can ensure that he receives consistent playing time with Lisandro Martinez due to his ability to play at right center-back. The team is able to provide more favourable terms for salaries than its competitors. Rather than shelling out large sums of money for known superstars, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has expressed a preference for acquisitions that are thought to be value for money.

Manchester United Offer £51m for Lille Star Leny Yoro

Manchester United has increased their chase of Lille’s excellent defender, Leny Yoro, with an additional bid of over £51 million.

As Raphael Varane’s departure gets closer, the Red Devils are looking to strengthen their defensive ranks with the young Frenchman.

According to Spanish daily AS, United are very serious about obtaining Yoro’s services, having already placed an offer close to Lille’s asking price.

The club’s quickly reflects their desire to quickly fill the void that Varane will leave when his contract expires at the end of the month.

Considering United’s strong financial pitch, Real Madrid remains a formidable opponent. The European champions also love Yoro, but are wary to pay more than £34 million for the 18-year-old, whose contract with Lille expires in June 2025.

This cash disparity puts Lille in a better negotiating position, but it also means they have to convince Yoro, who appears keen to join Madrid, to stay.

Yoro’s aim is evident; the sources suggest he is eager to finish his contract with Lille and join Madrid on a free transfer next summer if an instant move does not materialize.

This offers a big problem for United, who must now focus on appealing the youngster with promises beyond merely financial rewards.

With Varane’s exit, United can offer him a starting role alongside Lisandro Martinez, an opportunity that might not be as readily available at Madrid.

The coming weeks will be crucial as United aim to secure one of Europe’s most promising defenders. The club’s ability to offer Yoro regular playing time could be the decisive factor in winning this transfer battle.

Mason Greenwood was reportedly given permission to join Juventus for a five-year contract after they allegedly offered him money that would change his life if he leaves Manchester United. After an internal inquiry at United concluded that it would be better for all parties if the 22-year-old continued his career elsewhere, he spent the previous season on loan at La Liga team Getafe.

With 36 games played in all competitions, Greenwood finished with 10 goals and 6 assists, garnering considerable transfer interest. This summer, United appears determined to be true to their word and allow the forward to depart forever. Furthermore, Juventus is winning the battle to sign him, according to Sky Sports in Italy. However, because United is reportedly holding out for a €50 million (£42 million) transfer price, it might prove to be a bone of contention. Juventus is to make a starting offer of €30 million (£25 million) plus bonuses.

Mason Greenwood could leave Manchester United for Italian Giants

Juve is reportedly free to contact Greenwood, as his entourage allegedly made it clear that the Italian team is his top preference during the transfer window. It follows that personal terms are assumed to have already been decided upon.

Prior to signing Greenwood, they must also create space for him; either Federico Chiesa or Matias Soule is expected to go. Both the 21-year-old Argentine Soule and Italy international Chiesa have been linked to Roma. Soule is garnering interest from Premier League teams including Newcastle, Crystal Palace, and Tottenham.

Erik ten Hag’s big demands before signing Manchester United extension

Erik ten Hag has laid down three crucial demands as he considers a contract extension with Manchester United.

Following an end-of-season review, the Dutch manager is in discussions to extend his stay at Old Trafford, with the club eager to back him despite exploring other managerial options in recent weeks.

According to sources close to the negotiations, Ten Hag is adamant about maintaining his authority within the team.

His first demand is non-negotiable: Jadon Sancho will not return to the first team unless he issues a public apology.

This stems from last season’s fallout, where Sancho publicly accused Ten Hag of dishonesty, leading to his loan to Borussia Dortmund.

The expectation is that Sancho will be offloaded this summer unless he reconciles with the manager.

Ten Hag’s second demand involves pushing back against technical director Jason Wilcox’s influence over the team’s playing style.

Despite showing some flexibility, such as agreeing to use Bruno Fernandes in a false nine role during the FA Cup final victory over Manchester City, Ten Hag insists on retaining full control over tactical decisions. He seeks assurances that his vision for the team will not be compromised by external pressures.

Lastly, Ten Hag wants the club to secure a new deal for forwards coach Benni McCarthy. The South African’s contract is set to expire soon, and Ten Hag values McCarthy’s contributions to the coaching staff.

McCarthy himself has expressed a strong desire to remain at United, hoping to continue his coaching career in Europe.

United are reportedly preparing to offer Ten Hag a contract extension until 2027, extending his current deal by two years.

As talks progress, the club will need to meet these demands to ensure Ten Hag’s continued leadership and vision at Old Trafford.

Man United plotting a January move for Joshua Zirkzee

Joshua Zirkzee of Bologna is the main striker that Manchester United is after, as reported by Sky Sports. Zirkzee has been identified as the best option by the Red Devils as they look to add another striker to complement Rasmus Hojlund.

According to reports, the team is very interested in acquiring Zirkzee from Bologna. The 23-year-old’s deal has a £34 million release clause. The team has previously stated that they would like to sign him, but teams like AC Milan and Arsenal will compete with them. United may now have the chance to sign him, even though Zirkzee is determined to play in Serie A the next season.

Manchester United clears Bologna Striker as a top summer target

With 37 games in all competitions, the 23-year-old recorded 12 goals and seven assists during a strong second season with Bologna. Notwithstanding their Champions League qualification, Zirkzee is expected to depart Bologna. Apparently, Fabrizio Romano reported that player is “super keen” on the Milan project and “happy to stay” in Italy. Zirkzee, if Man Utd can persuade him to transfer to Old Trafford, would undoubtedly be a wise addition this summer.

While the Rossoneri are willing to pay his release clause over a number of installments, they are currently facing a roadblock due to Kia Joorabchian, his agent, requesting an enormous £13 million commission. Despite Zirkzee’s excellent status, it is improbable that he will transfer to Old Trafford. He may want a starting spot secured in addition to his preference for Milan.

Manchester United ends pursuit of Mauricio Pochettino

Manchester United have formally stopped their search of Mauricio Pochettino as a managerial candidate, clearing the Argentine’s name from their shortlist following long internal deliberations. This decision comes amid rising concerns over Erik ten Hag’s future at Old Trafford.

Although a disappointing season in both the Premier League and the Champions League, United’s FA Cup success gave a late-season boost, complicating the decision-making process for Ten Hag.

There had been speculation that Ten Hag would be fired regardless of the FA Cup result, but the club’s administration is still deliberating.

Initially, a slew of prominent managers were linked to the potential vacancy, including Gareth Southgate, Roberto De Zerbi, Zinedine Zidane, Kieran McKenna, and Thomas Tuchel.

Pochettino, who recently parted ways with Chelsea, was also heavily considered. However, according to The Times, the 52-year-old former Tottenham and PSG manager is no longer in the running.

Pochettino had been on INEOS’ shortlist and engaged in discussions with United officials at the season’s close. Despite a previous interview for the role in 2022, when Ten Hag was appointed, Pochettino is expected to be passed over once again.

Thomas Tuchel has also stepped out of the race, opting for a break after a disappointing season with Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Kieran McKenna has effectively removed himself from contention by signing a four-year contract extension with Ipswich.

Pochettino, keen to return to top-tier management, expressed his readiness to entertain new offers. “I have full energy and think we Chelsea finished really well,” he remarked. “We are open to football and will see what happens.”

As United’s leadership continues their review, fans eagerly await clarity on the club’s managerial direction.

OFFICIAL: Mason Greenwood joins La Liga side Getafe on loan

Mason Greenwood the forward for Manchester United, is supposedly in the sights of Fenerbahce, although he is concerned about playing under Jose Mourinho. The 22-year-old has played under Mourinho at Manchester United previously. It will now be up to the Red Devils to decide the 22-year-old’s future at Old Trafford after his La Liga loan at Getafe ended recently.

Although all of the accusations against him were dismissed in February of last year, he was arrested in January 2022 on suspicion of attempted rape and violence. Greenwood is reportedly the target of attention from several European teams, and it is now thought that Manchester United may consider bids this summer.

Mason Greenwood to reject Mourinho proposal after saying yes to alternative move

Fenerbahce is one of the teams that has stated that they would be interested in recruiting Greenwood for the start of the following campaign, according to The Sun. But according to the article, Greenwood “is not keen” on collaborating with Mourinho. With eight goals and six assists in 33 games for Getafe, Greenwood has benefited from his transfer to Spain. The £75,000-per-week striker has drawn interest from a number of unidentified Premier League teams.

Following the appointment of Jose Mourinho, his former manager at Old Trafford, Fenerbahce entered the competition to recruit the controversial centre striker, who may be free to leave United for a price of about £50 million. Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, and Juventus are among the overseas teams interested in him.

Man United set a valuation of £40m on Jadon Sancho

Sancho spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester United are now moving on from Jadon Sancho who was loaned out to his former club, Borussia Dortmund. He recently participated in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.

The Red Devils have reportedly placed a valuation of £40m on the Englishman as they want to sell him out during the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund, scoring three goals and providing three assists in 21 appearances at BVB.

Bundesliga giants are keen to give Sancho a permanent contract. They would come to an agreement over another loan deal and than pay out to re-sign him permanently.

As per the reports of BBC Sport, even if Ten Hag loses his job, the Man United are still planning to sell the forward. Man United need to raise funds in order to improve their squad this summer.

Juventus are also planning to sign him in the summer. Sancho was not impactful for United, scoring 12 goals and providing six assists in 82 appearances for the club in all competitions.

The Englishman was a substitute for his parent club’s first three matches of the 2023-24 Premier League season. He had a tussle with Erik ten Hag. He was eventually removed from the first-team at Old Trafford. His contract will expire in 2026 and Man United are not interested to carry with him.

Man United set to Open New Contract Talks with Captain Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United are poised to enter discussions over a new contract with their captain, Bruno Fernandes. The 29-year-old playmaker, who currently has two years left on his existing deal, along with an option for a further 12-month extension, has been a linchpin for the Red Devils since his arrival from Sporting CP in January 2020.

Despite recent speculation linking Fernandes with a potential move to Bayern Munich following Vincent Kompany’s appointment, sources close to the situation indicate that a transfer is unlikely this summer.

Fernandes, who has been a pivotal figure for United, seems more inclined to stay at Old Trafford and is eager to see the club’s new ownership match his ambitions.

Fernandes is acutely aware that his next contract might be his last significant deal in Europe, as he approaches his 30th birthday later this year. This awareness adds weight to the upcoming negotiations, as both Fernandes and the club recognize the importance of this contract for his future and the team’s aspirations.

The Portuguese international, already among the highest earners at United alongside stars like Marcus Rashford and Casemiro, remains a key figure despite the team’s disappointing eighth-place finish in the Premier League this season.

His leadership and creativity were instrumental in United’s FA Cup triumph, with Fernandes contributing 15 goals and 13 assists in 48 appearances across all competitions.

Fernandes’ commitment and performance have endeared him to the United faithful, making these contract talks a crucial step for the club as they aim to rebuild and return to the top echelons of English and European football.

As discussions loom, fans will be hopeful that an agreement can be reached that secures the future of their talismanic captain at Old Trafford.
