Man United

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is right to demand answers to biggest Manchester United question

Without a question, Manchester United is about to have one of their best summers ever.

As the season winds down, the Reds find themselves in a bind, and it’s unclear how things will be fixed in the long run. But better times are come for United, as Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS will try a rebuild for the first time this summer.

It remains to be seen if Erik ten Hag will be a part of it, given his awful performances this campaign. Even if Ratcliffe chooses to keep the Dutchman, there is still a significant concern that has to be addressed.

Ratcliffe demanding injury investigation

Ratcliffe is reportedly requesting that the team look into the injury crisis that has beset the team this season in great detail, according to the Daily Mirror. Surprisingly, since August, the team has suffered more than 60 different illnesses or injuries, with the defense suffering the most during the campaign.

United has attempted to manage their injury difficulties by using an astounding 31 different defensive lineups thus far.

MEN Sport says: It is refreshing to see this issue not being swept underneath the carpet by Ratcliffe. While it is easy to focus on the mistakes Ten Hag has made this season, it must be difficult to pick a side when so many severe injuries have flown through the squad. United are by no means the outlier in the Premier League as plenty of clubs have also suffered sustained injury problems – Liverpool being one example. But, United must be at the top end of the injury table and that certainly needs addressing as a priority to work out why this is happening. 

Casemiro looking to make a move

Casemiro is reportedly in talks to sign with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr team this summer, according to CaughtOffside. The Brazilian midfielder is one of several United players that INEOS has placed on transfer list in an effort to reduce the team’s wage expenditures.

It is understood that the Saudi Pro League team may make an offer for Casemiro’s services that is in the neighborhood of £34 million.

MEN Sport says: Ian Wright claimed earlier this week that Jamie Carragher had been disrespectful with his comments towards Casemiro after United’s thumping at Crystal Palace. While the ex-Liverpool man certainly did not mince his words on Monday Night Football, it was hard to argue with him.

The Brazilian has not reached anywhere near the heights he accomplished last season and he has proven why many questioned paying such a huge fee for him last summer. If Ten Hag is sacked the signings of Casemiro and Antony will be pointed to as one of the reasons why.
