After completing the purchase of Mason Mount from Chelsea, Man United is expected to complete two more contracts next week.
The saga surrounding Manchester United’s change of hands may not be over yet, but the transfer plan must continue.
Coach Erik ten Hag is shaping the squad for next season after completing the purchase of Mason Mount from Chelsea. And it is expected that the “Red Devils” will recruit 2 more rookies next week to prepare for the return to the Champions League.
Man United are very close to signing goalkeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan. On the evening of 8.7 (Vietnam time), goalkeeper David de Gea officially said goodbye to Old Trafford after 12 years of attachment.
Atlanta striker Rasmus Hojlund is also entering the short range of MU when the only problem is a price agreement.
Of course, in addition to upgrading the squad, Ten Hag also cannot neglect the task of pushing away players who are no longer in the plan. It is expected that Harry Maguire will be the first name to leave Old Trafford this summer.
Below is the expected lineup of Man United in the opening match of the Premier League 2023-2024 against Wolves on August 14.
Goalkeeper – Andre Onana : The Cameroonian wants to move to Manchester, and the deal is almost completed after talking with the “Red Devils” leadership. A goalkeeper with good footwork would be a great fit for Ten Hag’s style.
Defenders – Aaron Wan Bissaka, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw : In fact, there will not be much change in the Man United defense when Ten Hag is satisfied with the current staff. Wan-Bissaka can stay with the commendable performance at the end of last season, while Maguire has almost no chance.
Midfielders – Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount : It is not an exaggeration to say that the midfield is where Man United fans can rest assured.
Christian Eriksen’s poor form at the end of last season is likely to make him lose his place to Mason Mount, alongside Casemiro and Fernandes.
Strikers – Antony, Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford : Harry Kane was once a top target for Man United but everything has now come to a dead end. If leaving Tottenham, the England captain will also prioritize Bayern Munich.
Man United are currently working hard to recruit Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta. Untested in the Premier League, signing Hojlund is a gamble for Ten Hag. However, the speed and power of the Danish striker is needed to complement Rashford and Antony.
