Manchester United receive perfect message from surprise £40m transfer target



| Last Updated:


Manchester United are targeting a surprise £40 million transfer target this summer who has already delivered the perfect message.

The Reds are planning to make changes to the playing squad at Old Trafford this summer after it was confirmed that Erik ten Hag will remain at the club.

Ten Hag’s position at the helm is secured following INEOS‘ end-of-season review. The new club leaders met with multiple managerial targets before deciding that the current man was the best for the job.

One of the priority signings for the Old Trafford side this summer is a striker to support 21-year-old Rasmus Højlund in the squad.

Højlund scored 16 goals last term but struggled during periods of the season as the club’s only fit no.9.

Several names have been linked to the position, including Lille forward Jonathan David. The Canadian striker netted 26 goals last term and also registered nine assists.

David, 24, has been regularly linked to the Premier League in recent years but it has been confirmed by Lille’s president that the French club expect him to depart this summer.

The exciting striker has also previously claimed his affection for England’s top flight and how the prospect of making that move motivates him—something that United chiefs will be delighted to hear.

Speaking back in 2022, David said: “In England, when I watch the matches, everything is full each time. As a player, it motivates you even more.

“I don’t know, I think it’s possible, very possible [I could play in England one day]. I don’t know if I can find myself anywhere other than the Premier League.

“It could well be the Premier League. It’s a very nice atmosphere.”

He added: “I am aware of nothing. When I am at the World Cup I am just focused on trying to enjoy the World Cup and enjoying the moment.

“What happens after I do not know, we will have to see. The Premier League is the best league in the world and I think every player would want to play there someday.”
