With Manchester United all set for seismic overhauls as Eric ten Hag will be taking on the managerial responsibilities in the forthcoming summer, there will be a lot of new players on United’s radar. With rumours flying higher than ever, a few probable monikers are leading the others in terms of joining the ranks of the Devils.
Even though things just look dim with no Champions League football in the forthcoming season, it will be even more difficult to lure in players but then again, the Dutch mastermind is known for his towering presence and can make the craziest wonders happen. In this story, we will be taking a look at five probable transfer options that Manchester will be desperate to rope in.
#1 Kalidou Koulibaly
Even though luring in the Napoli star seems pretty tough, yet Manchester has made their intentions clear that they want a centre-back who will be leading the lines alongside Raphael Varane for the following season. With Maguire’s performances heading down the drain and with Lindelof’s inconsistency being a recurrent motif, Koulibaly can be a major boost to the side. He is a physical monster and was once touted by The Guardian as a cannon-ball stopper. Given the austere stature of Premier League where physical football sets the precedent, the Senegalese captain aces the charts.
#2 Frenkie de Jong
This is one transfer that would see Manchester United and Barcelona claw at each other viciously with zero regard for conventions. De Jong is an absolute artist and his game-making ability makes him a vicious threat for any opposition considering that Ronaldo leads the lines. However, it is needless to say that Xavi won’t be letting the Dutch midfielder go so easily and as far as Manchester is concerned, he is one of the top priority targets for United.
#3 Darwin Nunez
It is important that a young striker leads the lines for Manchester and plays the perfect companion to Jadon Sancho. Nunez has been in phenomenal form as he has racked up 34 goals across all competitions for Benfica and his finishing prowess is something that can add a lot of reliability to that of Ronaldo and Sancho. He is an excellent shooter and has some venomous speed up his sleeves that makes him a perfect fit for the United.
#4 Jude Bellingham
With Haaland making footfall in Manchester City, United wants a young midfielder with pace to be a part of their scheme. Jude Bellingham makes him the perfectly tailor-made midfielder to carve open the long balls and also explode down the center with some brutal pace. He also has age up his side that makes him a long-standing stay at the Old Trafford.
#5 James Ward-Prowse
Out of all the uprisings of the Premier League, Ward-Prowse is one of the hottest pursuits of the Premier League giants. Erik ten Hag is known for his technical abilities that makes him spot talents even if the world has deserted him. He believes in a set-up and that is how he chooses his players. Ward-Prowse is a dynamic beast and can make wonders happen if partnered with the right people in the center.
