Manchester United Transfer News: Manchester United bid for a Danish youngster, Late takeover affecting transfers.

Marcus Rashford signs a new contract. Uncertainty about Mason Mount

The summer transfer window is in full swing and Manchester United‘s transfer activity has garnered immense attention, with both fans and pundits eagerly speculating about the potential arrivals that could grace the hallowed turf. As the rumor mill churns, one thing is certain: the Red Devils are determined to make a resounding statement in the transfer market, and the anticipation surrounding their next signing is reaching a fever pitch.

Marcus Rashford signs a new contract

First up Marcus Rashford, United’s best player of the 2022/23 season is set to sign a new contract. With one year remaining on his contract extending his stay is one of the wisest decisions taken by manager Erik Ten Hag. With a shortage of experienced forwards in the playing XI having Rashford around will definitely grant some stability.

The pursuit of Rasmus Højlund

Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo the Old Trafford club has been in need of a poaching number 9. With Anthony Martial being injury-prone and a permanent contract for Wout Weghorst seeming unlikely they have set their sights on Rasmus Højlund. The Danish youngster is known for his physical strength and goals scoring abilities. Atalanta have priced him at €60 million including add-ons. Amad Dialo is likely to be a part of the swap deal.

Late takeover derailing various transfer plans at Old Trafford

Erik ten Hag finds himself increasingly frustrated as the ongoing takeover situation at the club hampers his plans to secure the services of West Ham captain Declan Rice and Tottenham’s Harry Kane. The uncertainty surrounding the Glazer family’s potential sale of the club has restricted Ten Hag’s spending power, impeding his ability to make any significant offer in the transfer market.

David De Gea’s replacement

David De Gea has been a staple between the posts for Manchester United. But with the Spanish goalkeeper in the final few days of his contract, the Red Devils are forced to look for a good replacement. Brentford’s David Raya and Everton’s Jordan Pickford have emerged as possible options with delegates from United already in touch with the players’ agents.

Manchester United’s Final Bid for Mason Mount Hangs in Balance

Manchester United is reportedly gearing up to launch a decisive last bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount in the upcoming week. The Red Devils are prepared to offer £50 million for the highly sought-after midfielder, considering it as their final opportunity to strike an agreement with Chelsea. However, United’s proposed bid falls short of Chelsea’s valuation of £70 million. United is reluctant to meet the additional £20 million demand, particularly as Mount’s contract is entering its final year. Consequently, the club has issued an ultimatum to its hierarchy, indicating that they will pursue alternative targets if the final bid is rejected.
