Manchester United make transfer change no one has noticed, could be crucial next season



| Last Updated:


Manchester United seems to have made a change to their transfer strategy this summer that no one has noticed, and it could be crucial for Erik ten Hag’s side.

The Reds are preparing for the upcoming campaign after starting their pre-season preparations at Carrington this week.

More importantly, they have been busy in the transfer market, making various offers for players like Leny Yoro and Jarrad Branthwaite.

Meanwhile, Joshua Zirkzee and Matthijs de Ligt are looking more and more likely to join the club each day.

While the speed at which the club are working on multiple deals is promising. There is another interesting aspect when you look at the players being targetted.

After a season where United looked physically drained, it appears that almost every target has physically dominant traits.

Zirkzee, De Ligt, Yoro, and Branthwaite all stand above 6 feet 2 inches. Midfield target Manuel Ugarte is around six feet tall and extremely powerful as well.

The physical nature of these targets makes sense for United. When you look at the strongest teams in Europe, particularly Manchester City and Arsenal, they have very physically dominant players within their teams.

Of course, other factors need to be considered, but it has been apparent that the current United squad lacks enough physicality, and INEOS seems to have identified that.

Now, it’s time for the likes of Dan Ashworth and Jason Wilcox to start getting these deals over the line as the club prepares for the 2024/25 campaign.
