Manchester United fined by UEFA as club hope to stop starlet leaving for free



| Last Updated:


Manchester United were hit by a fine by UEFA for a breach of their financial sustainability regulations in the summer.

Manchester United are currently struggling with UEFA‘s financial fair play regulations following multiple seasons of lavish spending in the transfer window.

Erik ten Hag has spent over £400 million on players since he joined the club in 2022, with the likes of £85 million on Antony, £60 million on Casemiro, and £72 million on Rasmus Højlund.

While each of these transfers have had varying amounts of success, according to ESPN, the clubwere hit with a £257,000 ($323,000) fine last summer following the breach.

Meanwhile, United are still hoping to tie down Omari Forson to a new contract, with his current one set to expire this summer.

According to journalist Rich Fay, there is a mounting possibility that Forson will leave United for free at the end of this summer, but the club have not given up hope.

Erik ten Hag is said to really appreciate Forson, who made his full Premier League debut in February. The club has already ‘come close’ to agreeing a new deal on a couple of occasions, it’s explained.

Forson, who United signed from Tottenham back in 2019, despite being valued by the manager, may have limited first-team opportunities for the foreseeable future with multiple attacking talents ahead of him.

Aside from the likes of Alejandro Garnacho, Marcus Rashford, and Højlund, United are looking to sign another forward this summer to bolster their attacking line.
