“Obviously…” – Ivan Toney provides hint about future amid Manchester United interest



| Last Updated:


Brentford forward Ivan Toney has provided a hint about his future as Manchester United target him in the summer transfer window.

The Reds are aiming to sign an additional striker to Rasmus Højlund, as well as to improve their defensive department this summer.

Højlund, 21, scored 16 goals for United during his debut campaign last term but faced major difficulties in periods of the long season.

The Danish international was also the only recognised centre-forward in Erik ten Hag’s squad for the most part of the season.

Reports suggest that the club has drawn up a shortlist of names they will consider this summer, with Ivan Toney named as a potential option.

Despite the 28-year-old entering the final year of his contract at the Gtech Community Stadium, ESPN have claimed that Brentford will still demand more than £50 million for Toney.

The Premier League forward is currently on international duty with England as he prepares for the upcoming Euro 2024 tournament.

He spoke to talkSPORT earlier this week and suggested that while he is focused on succeeding with the Three Lions this summer, he will be ready if an offer comes in for him in the coming months.

“I’m a Brentford player. I have a year left [on my contract]. Going into a major tournament, that is my main focus now,” he stated.

“But after this, I’ll be going back to Brentford, and I will be a Brentford player still. It’s nice to be linked with other clubs. But I’ve had this in the past. Nothing is done until it’s done.”

The forward was then asked whether he would engage in talks with any potential suitors in the upcoming window, “Obviously, if it was to come, I would be ready,” he added.

“But I’ve got to remain focused and not let other things and other noise get the best of me and just focus on what I need to do for my club.”
