“Particular appeal” – Why Man United haven’t given up on signing Premier League star



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have yet to give up on securing the signing of one Premier League star this summer transfer window despite fierce competition.

The Reds will be particularly busy in the summer window with new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS looking to make an impact on the playing squad.

Erik ten Hag’s side have underperformed this season, finishing eighth in the Premier League, and that has led to major questions over the future of the manager.

For example, reports have stated that newly available head coach Mauricio Pochettino would be interested in speaking with United should they decide to part ways with the Dutchman.

However, there have been multiple reasons for the underperformance this year. One of those has been the injury crisis, particularly in the defence.

Now, Raphaël Varane has confirmed his end-of-season exit, and the futures of the likes of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelöf remain uncertain. It is clear that INEOS will need major reinforcements to the backline at Old Trafford.

Tosin Adarabioyo has been one player linked with a move to United, and he will be available on a free transfer when his Fulham contract expires next month. However, Newcastle has reportedly been close to agreeing on a deal with the 26-year-old.

Yet, the latest information from the BBC states that United are still vying with Newcastle to sign the central defender.

It is claimed Newcastle boss Eddie Howe is a known admirer of the former Manchester City youth player, and that the Magpies were thought to be close to completing a deal to sign him.

However, the report explained that United have not ended their interest in the Englishman, and given their financial position, the prospect of signing a player for Adarabioyo’s quality without having to pay a transfer fee holds “particular appeal” to Old Trafford bosses.
