“Keep an eye on” – Journalist says Man Utd could sign “sensational” 35m partner for Mainoo

After debating whether to sign Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to take advantage of Leicester City’s precarious financial situation, Manchester United is a “club to keep an eye on.” However, journalist Ben Jacobs has informed GIVEMESPORT that the Championship title-winner’s price has recently increased ahead of a potential move to Old Trafford.

The Premier League has charged the Foxes for allegedly breaking the division’s profit and sustainability regulations. As a result, there are concerns at King Power Stadium that after securing an instant return to the top flight, they may have to approve multiple departures.

Plans are being made for the rapidly approaching summer transfer window, even though Erik ten Hag’s future as Manchester United’s manager is currently unclear. The Dutch tactician’s credentials are being evaluated by new technical director Jason Wilcox, who may remove him from his position.

Red Devils Could Eye Ideal Opportunity to Pounce for Dewsbury-Hall 

According to the Mirror, Manchester United may profit from the charges brought against Leicester because it will make Dewsbury-Hall more likely to leave as his current employers scramble to find additional funding, and their promotion to the top flight won’t stop them from having to sell their prized possessions.

But if the Red Devils step up their pursuit of the central midfielder in the upcoming months, they will have competition because, after contributing to 27 goals in all competitions this season, he has also drawn interest from Brentford, Fulham, and Brighton & Hove Albion, three Premier League rivals.

Dewsbury-Hall has stated that he does not intend to take on a new task, which might provide a major obstacle for Manchester United and other potential bidders. However, if Leicester maintains that they must approve his departure, he might be obliged to move to a different location.

Ben Jacobs – Ratcliffe Facing up to Increased Demands for Dewsbury-Hall 

A few months after Sir Jim Ratcliffe took over as manager of football operations, Jacobs acknowledges that Dewsbury-Hall’s price tag has increased to £35 million due to Leicester’s Championship title and rapid return to the Premier League. However, he has refused to rule out the possibility of a summer transfer to Manchester United, who are looking for a midfield partner for academy graduate Kobbie Mainoo.

However, the esteemed reporter is aware that Brentford is debating whether to make a formal approach at the King Power Stadium, and Brighton’s resolve to sign the 25-year-old, who former Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers called “sensational,” has not wavered.

Jacobs told GIVEMESPORT:

“My understanding on Dewsbury-Hall was always that if Leicester didn’t go up, he might be available for as low as £25million. But, now that they have, I think we’re looking at £35million.

“If we go back to January, Leicester actually valued him more in the region of £45million, but I don’t think it will be that high because of Leicester’s financial situation if they agree to a deal.

“I think we are looking at in excess of £35million, as a minimum, for Dewsbury-Hall if they choose to sell and the player wants to leave, even though he said that he wants to stay.

“There remains interest from Brighton, Brentford could come into the mix, and Manchester United are another club to keep an eye on as well.”

Mount Increasingly Likely to Stay at Old Trafford 

Mason Mount is anticipated to stay at Old Trafford for the upcoming season, according to GIVEMESPORT sources, as interested parties are likely to be discouraged from testing Manchester United’s resolve with a formal bid during the summer due to the financial ramifications of a prospective sale.

The Red Devils’ new management wants to shed as many as 12 players when the transfer window reopens because they want to restructure the team after missing out on Champions League qualification. However, the central midfielder is not planning to leave his current team.
