INEOS choose Manchester United player to build around with three transfer targets



| Last Updated:


INEOS have decided who they will start to build their new Manchester United around as they pick their first three transfer targets.

Manchester United need a smart and strategic summer transfer window as INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe decide which players should be brought in.

Regardless of whether Erik ten Hag will remain United manager or not beyond this summer, INEOS, who are now in charge of all sporting activities at Old Trafford, have picked their first three positions to recruit in.

According to The Telegraph, the club have been evaluating centre-forward options to support Rasmus Højlund, who INEOS seemingly see as the long-term first-choice striker at Old Trafford.

To accompany this, United are also actively seeking a right-back and a right-sided centre-back to reinforce their defensive line-up. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with one season left on his contract, has shared right-back responsibilities with Diogo Dalot this season. Dalot has also filled in on the opposite flank following Luke Shaw’s injury.

In the centre-back position, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelöf have one year left on their contracts, with Varane drawing interest from Saudi Arabia. Harry Maguire’s contract expires in 2025, although there is an option for an additional year should the club wish to trigger it. Jonny Evans was brought in as cover for the current season.

There is also a potential need for a midfielder, contingent on Casemiro’s future. The Brazilian international has attracted interest from the Saudi Pro League, and his departure would create a void in the squad that requires addressing.

Reports have previously stated that Ten Hag would be happy to let Casemiro leave this summer on the basis that Frenkie de Jong is then recruited.

It has been reported that Casemiro could be sold for as much as £60 million this summer, with United wanting to raise funds to sign players in the aforementioned positions.
