During the last transfer window, there were rumors that Sommer would be moving to Old Trafford. However, the club ultimately chose not to pursue the 33-year-signature old’s as a player and did not make the move.
But this has not put an end to the rumors and speculation. According to Bild, Sommer is expected to sign with a club in the Premier League once his contract with Borussia Monchengladbach expires in June.
It is also mentioned that the Red Devils, who are ready to make the Swiss star their new number one, are attracted to the star player from Switzerland. There is a little probability that De Gea’s current deal will be extended after it expires.
Sommer would suit Erik ten Hag’s playing style at Man Utd
After getting off to a shaky start to the season due to a few miscues in goal, De Gea has made up for lost time by turning in a number of stellar outings since then.
Although the Spaniard has displayed remarkable reflexes between the posts for the club, it is not yet clear whether his contract, which currently pays him £375,000 per week, will be extended beyond the month of June.
There is speculation that the 32-year-old player would be willing to take a 50 percent pay cut in exchange for a contract extension, which would give the club the ability to exercise a one-year extension option on his current deal.
Despite this, we won’t be shocked if De Gea is shown the door out of the team soon. Because of his excellent ball-playing abilities, Sommer would be an improvement on the Spaniard. This would be a good move for the team.
During this league season, he has completed 45 accurate passes on average per game and has thrown 7 long balls. De Gea, on the other hand, averages only 18 successful passes per league game while attempting 5 long balls.
The Swiss goalkeeper has also averaged a higher number of saves per game (4.7) than De Gea. It’s possible that his wages, which are only £36,000 per week at the moment, are the most important thing.
United have also been linked with Porto goalkeeper Diogo Costa, who has a release clause of £64 million, but Sommer would be a good acquisition for United on a free transfer because he is a free agent.
It would also save the club valuable funds, allowing them to spend heavily on filling other important positions. It’s possible that next summer’s top priorities will include acquiring a star striker and a central midfielder.

Man Utd transfer: Closing price for Cody Gakpo; Ronaldo returned to his homeland
Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with Sporting Lisbon, while Manchester United are hoping to replace him with PSV Eindhoven striker Cody Gakpo.
United are also reportedly interested in Napoli central defender Kim Min-jae, while Liverpool could offer defender Ibrahima Konate in a swap deal for Juventus’ Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic.
RONALDO RETURNS TO SPORTING LISBON
Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Real Madrid. Lisbon Sporting. According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, the 37-year-old striker is a free agent and has been sending his cars back from Manchester to the Portuguese capital. Ronaldo’s mother is said to want her son to return to the club where he debuted before moving to Manchester United.
Paper Round’s point of view:
Ronaldo does not appear to be overly sentimental about many things, but he is concerned about his legacy. If he can earn 200 million euros per year in Saudi Arabia, he must be interested, but Sporting Lisbon may be more appealing. He would almost certainly be back in the Champions League next season, giving him the opportunity to add to his tally.
THE UNITED STATES WANT KIM MIN-JAE
According to the Mirror, Manchester United are interested in signing Kim Min-jae from Napoli during the upcoming transfer window. The 26-year-old South Korean international is available for his £38 million release clause, which would likely mean the end of Harry Maguire’s time at Old Trafford. While Maguire has performed admirably at the World Cup, Erik ten Hag is seeking reinforcements.
Paper Round’s point of view:
Ten Hag correctly observed that Maguire struggles on the ball when compared to Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez. So far in the World Cup, he has not been put under serious pressure by any of the teams, and as a result, he has looked far better. Bringing in Fenerbahce would allow Maguire to join a team that values his qualities.
