Manchester United’s next summer signing revealed

An insight into who Manchester United will try to sign next has been provided.


Gary Neville has revealed the next player Manchester United want to sign.

The Red Devils began their summer spending by agreeing a deal to sign England midfielder Mason Mount from Chelsea on a five-year contract for £55m, plus £5m in add-ons.

They then completed the £47.2m signing of goalkeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan last month.

Their latest bit of business saw them snap up Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta for an initial £64m plus £8m in add-ons.

And according to Gary Neville, the next player on Manchester United’s shopping list is Sofyan Amrabat:

“They are trying to sign, or were trying to sign, Sofyan Amrabat we believe, to go in there alongside Casemiro,” he told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.

“I don’t know [who Erik ten Hag would drop] but they want to buy Sofyan Amrabat for a reason.

“One thing that Erik ten Hag is not going to do is go back to the likes of Fred and Scott McTominay who he believes are technically not good enough on the ball.

“He wants everybody in the team to be able to accept the football and receive it. Sofyan Amrabat coming in, he is a passer of the ball and can sit in there alongside Casemiro.

“Casemiro got absolutely torn to shreds tonight. Man Utd’s midfield were non-existent and they were absolutely ripped apart. Wolves were absolutely fantastic. Manchester United’s midfield was non-existent, it emptied. That would have been a real worry for Erik ten Hag.”
