Man United are close to sign Raphinha next season

Manchester United

According to reports, Man United are looking to sign FC Barcelona star Raphinha with the Brazil international at risk of ‘sacrificed’.

A major overhaul expected at Old Trafford ahead of next season and this follows the arrival of Sir Jim Ratcliffe as their new co-owner.

The INEOS chief has only purchased a minority stake in the Premier League giants but he has taken control of footballing matters at Old Trafford and is in the process of improving their recruitment model.

This has a miserable season for Man United. They have reached the FA Cup final but they exited the Champions League and Carabao Cup prematurely, while they sit sixth in the Premier League.

A recent report claimed ‘almost every player’ at Man United is up for sale and Marcus Rashford is among the talents who could offloaded this summer. 

Rashford was sensational for Man Utd last season as he scored 30 goals across all competitions but his form has declined this term.

Man united wants to improve their attack for next season

According to a report from Spanish outlet Nacional, Man Utd will ‘study’ Rashford’s exit in the summer as he has been a ‘great disappointment’ this season.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Juventus and PSG are all mentioned as potential destinations for Rashford

And it is noted that ‘Ratcliffe would be obliged to sign a guaranteed replacement for the attacker’.

AC Milan’s Rafael Leao and Napoli’s Khvicha Kvaratskhelia are ‘on the agenda’ but Raphinha is also being monitor with Barcelona considering an ‘interesting sacrifice’.

Regarding what Barcelona are ‘demanding’ to ‘close a deal’, the report adds: ‘Joan Laporta is the first to lose sight of Raphinha as soon as possible since with this money he could bring Nico Williams, or footballers he believes would work much better at Barcelona.

‘And he will request 60 million euros (£51m) from the Red Devils’.

It is not just the Man Utd players at risk as head coach Erik ten Hag is under huge pressure heading into the summer.
