Manchester United “watching” Ivan Toney’s return to Premier League football



| Last Updated:


Ivan Toney has returned to duty in the Premier League after serving an eight-month FA ban for betting breaches.

Ivan Toney scored on his return to Premier League football following an eight-month ban due to breaches of The FA’s Betting Rules, with the player returning to Brentford duty and scoring in a 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest.

Manchester United have been crying out for an experienced striker over the last year or so, with Erik ten Hag‘s men unable to score consistent goals.

The club are looking to sign a striker in the summer transfer window of a “Harry Kane-like” calibre, and Toney’s Premier League experience and record might be what the club needs.

According to The Athletic, United are “watching” his return to the competition following his eight-month layoff.

Toney’s contract with Brentford expires in June 2025, meaning the coming summer is the final window where Brentford will be able to sell the 27-year-old for a significant amount of money.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been linked to the player in recent months, with Arsenal in particular interested in bringing Toney in, so there will likely be a battle for his signature across the first half of 2024.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag is also said to be a big fan of Brian Brobbey, 21, after they worked together at Ajax.
