Manchester United are only two games away from finishing the current season. After that, the summer transfer window will start, and like others, Manchester United have already prepared their transfer plans ahead of the window. Many rumors are swirling about Harry Kane, Neymar Jr., and Mason Mount joining Man United. Today, we will discuss their possibility of joining Manchester United.
English striker Harry Kane remains the top target for Erik Ten Hag. Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United have been looking for a proper and prominent striker. There are not many strikers available in the market right now. But Harry Kane will enter the final year of the contract with Tottenham Hotspur, and he hasn’t renewed his contract as of now. Therefore, Manchester United see a chance of signing the English striker, who has scored 28 goals in the Premier League this season. Harry Kane is the top priority for Erik Ten Hag, which could cost Man United above 100 million Euros.
Manchester United have shown a strong interest in Mason Mount. The English midfielder’s contract with Chelsea FC expires in 2024. Moreover, Mason Mount’s relationship with Chelsea has become complicated as he hasn’t been playing for the club for half of the season.
However, Liverpool, Newcastle United, and Tottenham are also interested to bring Mount. But Manchester United believe they are the frontrunner to sign the English midfielder. It would cost them about 50 million Euros.
There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Neymar joining Manchester United in the upcoming transfer window. Neymar’s contract with PSG will also expire next year. Therefore, some reports from France stated that Manchester United would go for Neymar Jr.
But it is really difficult to sign Neymar if they go for a striker. According to the Transfer Guru Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are not in contact with Neymar.
Club’s ownership won’t affect the transfer plan – Ten Hag
Currently, the Glazers are in the process of selling Manchester United. The frontrunners are Qatari Sheikh Jasim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe. In any case, Erik Ten Hag said that his transfer plans won’t be affected by the change of ownership. Ten Hag said, “This season that has to be our energy and the focus, but of course we are also planning for the future, for next season and that’s what we have to do. And that is also talking with your scouting department, recruitment responsibilities, and talking with players of course.”
“I came in here [at the end of] last season and we talked about what can we do in the squad, what can we do in transfers. And last year, the club confirmed they can do. So, for me, I don’t think anything changed and yeah, in this summer period we can do the same,” Ten Had added.
