Manchester United, Six Sports

Manchester United are looking forward to a complete summer overhaul of the squad under their new manager Erik Ten Hag.

Since the end of the season, several prominent players have been linked to the Red Devils, but none of them have yet bit the dust.

United would start their training later this month. Therefore, Ten Hag should want to have at least one or two new faces on the team to begin the preparations for next season.

Here, we bring to you the complete transfer roundup of the stories surrounding the English powerhouses.

Manchester United set eyes on Robert Lewandowski

The Red Devils seem to be suddenly in the race to sign the talismanic striker.

Lewandowski had already confirmed that he wants to leave Bayern Munich this summer. He has a year left on his contract still at the Allianz Arena.

Barcelona seemed to be leading the race to win his signature. However, with Barca’s current financial situation, they now seem to fall behind in the race.

Chelsea are also another team that has shown interest in signing the striker. Moreover, they are now looking close to cracking a deal with him.

However, the Daily Star reports that United are keeping a watch over all the developments.

The Red Devils missed out on Darwin Nunez to their rivals Liverpool. Therefore, Ten Hag would want another centre-forward in the team as Edinson Cavani is also set to depart the Old Trafford this month.

Lewandowski fits the profile of the perfect striker that United are looking for.

He has 50 goals from the 46 appearances that he made for the club this season. Moreover, he has provided 7 assists in the games that he played.

Erik Ten Hag speaks to Frenkie De Jong to come to Old Trafford

It is said that Manchester United’s head coach Erik Ten Hag tried to convince De Jong to join the Red Devils from Barcelona.

Recently, the Dutch midfielder voiced his wish of staying at Camp Nou. This suggestion came amidst his possibility of a move to the English powerhouses.

However, the Mirror reported that Ten Hag has been having discussions with the 25-year-old. They even added that he has now convinced the player to join United.

De Jong previously enjoyed a successful tenure at Ajax under Ten Hag. Therefore, they are said to be having good relations.  

Moreover, De Jong was an important member of the team which reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2019 under the Dutch coach.

United have been in talks with Barca for some time now over the transfer of De Jong.

Barca even rejected the opening bid made by United last week.

Still United are optimistic that they could pull out of the deal.
