Man United are still pursuing both Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham, despite being rejected outright by them.
Forget the 2 ‘superstars’, Man Utd has a cheap and quality midfielder to pursue
At the moment, two of Man United’s 2022 summer signings, Casemiro and Christian Eriksen, are shining in the midfield. But Erik ten Hag still wants another midfielder as the January transfer window approaches.
The Dutchman has not completely given up on De Jong, whom he spent most of his first summer at Old Trafford pursuing. But the chances of the Dutch international staying at Barcelona are very high, especially since the former Ajax star has finally been given regular appearances in Xavi’s side.
It is also reported that Man United are very interested in Bellingham, nearly three years after the midfielder turned them down to Dortmund. The situation is different now, the English star wants to play for a big club, and is sought after by many big men , even if he costs up to 150 million euros.
Surprisingly, the Red Devils are not very interested in a very talented midfielder playing for Leicester City, Youri Tielemans. The Belgian star can leave for under £30 million and has already proven his talent in the Premier League.
Given the high prices of De Jong and Bellingham, it’s time for United to consider an approach to Tielemans , especially as the Foxes don’t want the 25-year-old to leave King Power for nothing.
Man United need squad depth, especially midfield, to develop the ball-control style that Ten Hag wants to operate. At this point, Fred is still useful, but without the necessary consistency, Donny van de Beek is injured and may be a long way from returning to the top image. Scott McTominay is improving, but still prone to odd mistakes, which was evident when he conceded an ungodly penalty in the recent 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
Tielemans will add quality to Man United’s midfield. He has talent, experience and class and the ability to create mutations from the 2nd line with his dribbles, assists or shots. With him, Casemiro and Eriksen can rest when needed. He can even compete with the official fairground site with ErikThe 50 Greatest Football Managers of All Timesen or Bruno Fernandes.
In pursuit of Tielemans, there will be funds to recruit a new striker, with Cristiano Ronaldo expected to leave in the near future. This is where Ten Hag needs a fix, with the former Ajax boss having to let a centre-back like Harry Maguire kick in in the decisive clash with Real Sociedad in the Europa League.
Man Utd fans want to sign the star that almost made Ronaldo hate him
After his outstanding performance against Portugal yesterday, Mohammed Kudus attracted the attention of the entire world. He is a speed drill that breaches Europe’s best defense.
The 22-year-old has already distinguished himself in an Ajax jersey, where he has scored 10 goals so far this season. One of them came from a powerful shot made in the Champions League matchup against Liverpool.
In January, Manchester United will look to bolster their offensive capabilities in the wake of Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are the only two remaining Red Devils players who can kick the striker.
Kudus plays on the wing but is still comfortable if ranked first in the front line. Erik ten Hag tends to favor versatile players, so the Ajax star is right on the transfer list at Old Trafford.
Right now, some Man Utd fans are thinking about the prospect of a Ghanaian player coming to the team. On Twitter, there were a series of moves calling for the Red Devils to complete the deal
