Everyone at INEOS has agreed on two early signings for Man Utd – journalist

Manchester United want to replicate what they did 12 months ago and make two early signings at the beginning of the summer transfer window, journalist Ben Jacobs has told GIVEMESPORT.

Last year, United made early waves in the European market when they recruited Andre Onanafrom Inter Milan and signed Chelsea’s Mason Mount in a controversial swoop, all for a combined £102.2 million.

With INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe now overseeing the club’s transfer business and a decision on Erik ten Hag’s future finally resolved, all parties will be keen to take a proactive approach to the upcoming summer window as United look to better their eighth-place finish last season.

Man Utd Target Early Double Signing

Jonathan David and Matthijs de Ligt are among the players linked with the club

The Red Devils are reportedly after a new striker to assist Rasmus Hojlund, who they signed from Atalanta last season for £72m, with Lille’s Jonathan David one of the club’s alternatives to Benjamin Sesko who has decided to stay at RB Leipzig. David’s Lille teammate Leny Yoro is also of interest to United, with the club poised to make a move for the pair.

Another key target for Man Utd is Matthijs de Ligt, who played under Ten Hag at Ajax for two years from 2017 to 2019. Raphael Varane has left the club leaving a vacant spot for a new centre-back, with United tipped the “favourites” to sign De Ligt from Juventus this summer.

Whoever United choose to go after, Jacobs told GMS in an exclusive chat that they want to get their business completed swiftly.
