Man United trying to ‘hijack’ move to sign Manchester-born player, would be a free transfer: report

Man United are looking to beat Newcastle United to the signing of Tosin Adarabioyo. 

Raphael Varane will leave Manchester United this summer, and more center halves may follow him out of Old Trafford in the upcoming months.

When the transfer window opens, the Red Devils ought to prioritize strengthening this position. The 20-time Premier League winners appear to be doing just that, as multiple center backs have been connected to a move to Salford Quays.

And Tosin Adarabioyo is one of them. Yesterday, we reported on another rumor related to that, as Sky Sports News verified the Reds’ interest in the Fulham player.

A further development on that front has been provided by talkSPORT, which asserts that United is attempting to “hijack” Newcastle United’s attempt to recruit the Manchester-born star.

It seems that the defender and the Magpies intensified their contract negotiations over the weekend in an attempt to make the center-half their first summer acquisition.

The agreement is not finalized yet, though, as Jason Wilcox—who supported Adarabioyo’s growth at Manchester City—is eager to entice him to Old Trafford.

Since Adarabioyo’s contract expires this summer, he would be available for a free move, which would make him a desirable choice for United considering their financial constraints.

It won’t be simple to defeat Newcastle United’s rivals, regrettably. We have to be honest with ourselves: considering their relative league places, they are undoubtedly a more alluring destination at the moment.

It may take a massive offer in terms of weekly wage to convince Adarabioyo to make the move back to Manchester. Even then, that may not be enough.
