In spite of the fact that Manchester United appears to be close to sealing a deal to acquire Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern Munich, it is possible that the club is preparing to bolster their midfield ranks even further before the deadline.
Foot Mercato reports that the Red Devils are reported to have made an offer to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar on loan for the remainder of the current campaign while paying his full wage. This information comes from a report that was published by Foot Mercato. The present contract that Houssem Aouar, who is 24 years old, has with the Ligue 1 club has only another six months left on it. It is speculated that the Red Devils were the ones to make the offer.
These allegations have been further strengthened by a new article that was published on Twitter by a writer. Within the past hour and a half, the writer published an article in which he stated that “Manchester United had undertaken early conversations regarding a potential loan deal for Houssem Auoar.” It’s not even close to being feasible, and things are looking much less promising for it right now.
It should not be unexpected that Erik ten Hag is making a last-ditch effort to sign quality players with just a few hours left in the transfer window because injuries to Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek have left him with a relatively small number of choices in the middle of the field. This is because injuries to Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek have left Erik ten Hag with a relatively limited number of options in the middle of the field.
In the case of Aouar, the fascinating Frenchman has been going through a tough stretch as of late. The reason for this is that he has only played in the league eight times this season due to injury. As a result, he has not been able to fully showcase his talents. In spite of this, it is quite evident that he continues to be a player with immense potential, as the manager of Manchester City, Pep Guardiola, has referred to him in the past as “amazing.”
The 5 feet 9 inch maestro has shown that he possesses this quality by accumulating 41 goals and 35 assists for his present team in a total of 224 games played thus far. In addition to this, he has been lauded as “technically gifted” and “dangerous” by the manager of Lyon, Laurent Blanc, who used to play for United in the past. Laurent Blanc is currently managing Lyon. Blanc has taken over as manager of Lyon at this point.
The sensation who earns £63k per week compares favorably to others in his position, ranking in the top 5% for goals that were not awarded as penalties and ranking in the top 8% for dribbles completed as a marker of his attacking thrust. Both of these rankings place him in the top 5% for goals that were not awarded as penalties. In addition, he ranks in the top 1% for progressive passes received, which is evidence of his creative flare, and he ranks in the top 5% for goals that were awarded as penalties. Both of these accomplishments put him in an excellent position.
This dynamic could well help soften the loss of Eriksen, who has nine assists to his name this season, as well as give solid support for Bruno Fernandes in Ten Hag’s squad. Eriksen’s absence will be eased by the fact that he has nine assists to his name this season. The team is now much more dependent on the Portuguese international player as a result of the absence of Van de Beek. This season, Eriksen has contributed to the team with nine assists.
If they are successful in bringing Aouar to Old Trafford, it would certainly be considered a “great” signing for the club, especially considering how late in the day it would take place. To tell you the reality, that would be a “amazing” acquisition for the club if they were to make such a move.
