Man United ‘hold transfer talks with Saudi Pro League’ as four players mentioned



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have reportedly travelled to hold talks with Saudi Pro League representatives in Riyadh, with four players mentioned.

John Murtough, football director of Manchester United, travelled to Saudi Arabia earlier this month to hold talks with representatives of the growing Saudi Pro League in a bid to raise funds for January.

Erik ten Hag will be looking to dip into the January transfer market as he looks to improve his Old Trafford squad after a poor start to the Premier League campaign, with Manchester United having already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and Champions League.

According to the Daily Mail, John Murtough is looking to aid this by helping bin players who are surplus to requirements in Ten Hag’s squad to raise funds for transfer.

The report mentions that Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial, and Casemiro are four players who are available to be sold and will likely have come up in conversation earlier this month, among others.

Although it is stated that no transfers were agreed, Murough is said to have “established some important new relationships” for the club, and that further talks are currently planned to take place.

With Ten Hag needing space and money for new signings next month, Donny van de Beek is set to depart on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt in the coming days for the remainder of the season, with a view to sell the player in the summer.

United are targeting a striker, centre-back, and two midfielders for the upcoming window, but Ten Hag has already admitted that he does not think much business will be able to be completed in January.
