Forget De Jong, four potentital players will help Man Utd’s midfield ‘makeover’

After the conclusion of this season, it is anticipated that the Old Trafford team will make changes to the midfield, and the Red Devils have shown interest in a number of players.

After Erik ten Hag was hired as coach of Manchester United, Frenkie de Jong was at one time considered the “ultimate” target of the club.

However, due to the Dutch midfielder’s dogged determination in Barcelona, the Reds’ attempts were ultimately unsuccessful.

After that, Man United focused their attention on Ruben Neves, but it is unlikely that this transaction will be successful.

According to Sport’s reporting, a transfer agreement between Barcelona and Wolves regarding the Portuguese midfielder has been finalized.

The fee is also significantly lower than the 43 million pounds that the cloudy team requested.

As long as coach Xavi “gives the green light,” the transaction is considered to have been finalized.

Because Man United captain Fred wants to leave on a free form at the end of this season, the club is comp.e.l.led to look for other names in order to replace Fred. According to the Express, the following four players stand out as strong contenders for the starting position in the middle of Old Trafford’s field:

Declan Rice

This talented midfielder is almost certain to leave West Ham after the 2022/23 season. The Hammers’ £70 million asking price is not excessive. The former Chelsea football student has long been “coveted” by Manchester United.

The Red Devils spent a lot of money this year to bring in Casemiro.

Rice’s ability to continue “swinging” is not particularly strong.

However, as long as Manchester United is determined, £ 70 million is entirely within their grasp.

Enzo Fernandez

Man United passed up the chance to sign the Argentine midfielder and instead let him join Benfica for £ 14 million in the summer. The red half of Manchester, on the other hand, regrets seeing Fernandez shine in Benfica’s jersey.

At the age of 21, this player is competing in his first World Cup with Argentina and has advanced to the semi-finals.

As a result, the Portuguese club is said to be unwilling to sell below Fernandez’s £103 million release clause.

Man United, or any other team, must carefully consider this transaction.

Moses Caicedo

Moises Caicedo, like Fernandez, is a promising midfielder who the Red Devils have previously overlooked. The 21-year-old midfielder from Brighton quickly integrated into the English Premier League. Although Ecuador will not fare well in the 2022 World Cup, Caicedo remains a face that many teams are interested in. The Seagulls are asking £70 million for his services.

Youri Tielemans

Since he began playing in the English Premier League many years ago, the Belgian midfielder has become a well-known figure there. The rise of Jude Bellingham or Declan Rice, on the other hand, made it so that Tielemans received very little media attention.

It has come to light that Man United have been keeping an eye on Tielemans ever since the Leicester City player was still playing for Anderlecht.

Given that the midfielder was born in 1997 and his contract is set to expire in 2023, it is clear that this is a deal that Manchester United should consider pursuing.
