Sir Jim Ratcliffe could lose two cost-efficient Man United transfer options after the latest developments



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have already begun their adjustments at Manchester United yet they will have to act smart in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The new co-owner has been particularly busy behind the scenes with the additions of Jason Wilcox and Omar Berrada.

Dan Ashworth is also expected to be the next sporting director. He has now initiated arbitration proceedings to facilitate the move after United and Newcastle could not come to an agreement.

However, the changes on the pitch are the ones that supporters are keen to see. This summer window will be crucial to either Erik ten Hag or a new manager.

INEOS know that they must sell players within the current playing squad to have a good summer window, with United’s budget not being monumental with no Champions League football.

They will also recognise that a couple of cost-efficient transfer options could work well for the club, and there have already been links to players who could fit into that category.

Tosin Adarabioyo is leaving Fulham at the end of the season, and UtdDistrict understands that the Reds are heavily interested in the defender and monitoring his situation.

However, recent reports have stated that the centre-back could be Newcastle-bound after the club offered game-time guarantees and a £100,000-a-week contract.

Meanwhile, in midfield, United identified Leicester City star Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall as a potential signing. UtdDistrict understands that the club have been closely watching the Championship player and scouts have classified him as a “shrewd signing”.

Despite Leicester being promoted to the Premier League, their financial troubles could still mean that they need to sell players at cut-price deals.

However, the 25-year-old has recently claimed that he wants to remain at the King Power Stadium, which could complicate a potential transfer.

Ultimately, Ratcliffe and his team will want to identify the best potential cost-efficient transfers so that they can complete more of the expected overhaul in this first summer.
