After Zirkzee & De Ligt: Romano says there’s a ‘big possibility’ United could pursue Euros semi-finalist

Acquiring both players would bolster two of the positions that most desperately needed reinforcing heading into the window, with Zirkzee viewed as a direct replacement for Anthony Martial and De Ligt the same for Raphael Varane.

INEOS, along with newly-appointed sporting director Dan Ashworth, will be well aware that the arrivals can’t stop there, though, should the deals get over the line in the coming days.

Not only is another centre-half necessary before the window closes, but a midfielder to aid Kobbie Mainoo’s development in his sophomore Premier League campaign would only benefit Erik ten Hag in 2024/2025.

Casemiro, 32, has been tipped to leave Old Trafford for several months. Fabrizio Romano revealed on Sunday evening that the Brazilian’s agents have been negotiating his potential exit with Saudi Pro League clubs since April, and he’d certainly leave a gaping hole in the squad if anything materialises.
