According to British media, Harry Kane, Youri Tielemans or Jeremie Frimpong can become MU’s rookies after this season. Coach Erik ten Hag confirmed MU needs a new “number 9”.
According to the Telegraph, MU started to learn about the possibility of recruiting Harry Kane. The “Red Devils” will first ask Spurs about the transfer price and want to know the necessary conditions to approach the English striker, especially the negotiation issue with Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy.
Kane’s current contract expires in June 2024. Spurs prioritize selling Kane to a foreign team in case the striker born in 1993 does not renew his contract. However, Kane wants to continue playing in the familiar Premier League environment.
Kane’s price is not less than 100 million pounds. MU can give David de Gea a new contract and look for another goalkeeper to create competition in the wooden frame. Dominik Livakovic is currently in the sights of the Old Trafford club.
The Croatian goalkeeper only has a £10m release clause with Dinamo Zagreb. Livakovic has been with Dinamo Zagreb for the past 8 years but he was only noticed after his excellent performance at the 2022 World Cup. Livakovic possesses good reflexes and can use his feet well.
The position of right-back cannot make coach Erik ten Hag feel secure. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed that the “Red Devils” are looking to fill the position with interest in Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong. This defender is said to be ready to go to the Premier League to play football.
Frimpong defends well and has an impressive climbing ability. This season, the 22-year-old defender has 8 goals and 6 assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances. Leverkusen values Frimpong at around £35 million.
According to the Telegraph, MU also prioritizes bringing in a new central defender. After this season, it is likely that Harry Maguire will leave Old Trafford. Victor Lindelof’s future is also unpredictable. Therefore, MU has a reason to care about Ajax’s Jurrien Timber.
Summer 2022, MU almost got Timber’s signature, but Ajax refused to let go. Timber personally confirmed that he would leave the Dutch team after this season. “Red Devils” can recruit Timber for £ 37 million.
Jude Bellingham and Frenkie de Jong are the top transfer targets of MU. However, due to prioritizing other positions, MU does not have much money and can switch to Youri Tielemans for free.
Leicester decided to keep Tielemans before the eyes of many clubs in the summer of 2022. Therefore, the “Foxes” are about to lose the midfielder costing about 50 million pounds. This season, Tielemans’ form has declined, but he is still a quality free deal for the big boys in the Premier League.
