Deal closer: Man Utd in talks to sign “monster” £51m star, just imagine him & De Ligt – opinion

Now into July, Manchester United are finally starting to get a move on as Sir Jim Ratcliffepresses ahead with plans to make the Red Devils a force to be reckoned with again.

A deal to bring Dan Ashworth to Old Trafford is finally complete and with that said, incomings and outgoings could begin to gather pace in the transfer window.

So, what’s next on the agenda? Well, it’s believed a midfielder is top of their shopping list.

Man United’s midfield shopping list

Rumours have been rife over recent months linking Man United with a swoop for Benfica sensation Joao Neves. However, with a release clause of over £100m that feels unlikely.

So, where next? Well, according to Sky Germany’s Florian Plettenberg, PSG star Manuel Ugarte is a ‘serious target’ having been told he can leave the French club before the window closes.

Claims from Ugarte’s native Uruguay report that ‘positive talks’ have been held between United and PSG with a deal now said to be moving ‘closer’ according to some in Italy.

A £51m fee has been mooted for his services.

One of the biggest issues in 2023/24 for Erik ten Hag was a lack of spine. Not his spine, of course, but the team’s spine.
