Sir Jim Ratcliffe to adjust Man United’s transfer approach with three surprise players outlined



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS are reportedly set to adjust their approach at Manchester United for the upcoming summer transfer market.

The Reds have had what they consider a successful January transfer window, according to the report from ESPN, following loan exits of Donny van de Beek and Jadon Sancho alongside a host of youth players.

However, whilst Erik ten Hag’s side now have money to spend despite concerns over breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules, the new INEOS leadership are looking to adjust their summer strategy.

It was added that United’s financials remain “tight” and that targeting players approaching the end of their current contracts is viewed as a good way of managing the summer transfer kitty.

Ratcliffe and his INEOS team are awaiting Premier League ratification but will be taking complete control of sporting decisions afterwards.

The aforementioned report added that the Old Trafford club are exploring a number of similar deals ahead of this summer, with players such as Joshua Kimmich, Jonathan David and Khephren Thuram all set to be out of contract in 2025.

Kimmich, 28, has been a mainstay at Bayern Munich for almost a decade now, whilst David and Thuram could be options to boost United’s attack and midfield, respectively.

United signed Mason Mount last summer, who was entering the final year of his contract at Chelsea, but they still ended up buying the midfielder for a £60 million package.

Mount has been injured in recent months and has only started seven games for the club this season.
