The Lowdown: Transfer ball rolling
The Red Devils appear to be finally getting things in place ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first season in charge.
Reports have suggested that deals have been agreed in principle for both Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia.
The Latest: Eriksen update
The Guardian shared a transfer update regarding United on Wednesday evening, name-checking De Jong, Malacia and Antony.
They also provided news on Eriksen however, claiming ‘there is hope at United that Eriksen could join after previously signalling a preference to remain in London’.
The Verdict: Fingers crossed
Things are seemingly falling into place off the pitch, with De Jong and Malacia set to bolster the club’s central midfield and left-back ranks respectively.
How many signings do Man Utd need to make this summer?
A move for Antony would also provide Ten Hag with a senior right-winger ahead of the new season, something he currently doesn’t have.
Eriksen could be the cherry on top of the cake at Old Trafford, with Gary Neville labelling the attacking midfielder’s passing as ‘out of this world‘ back in May.
He’d provide plenty of competition to Bruno Fernandes and would also be able to play out wide if required, so fingers crossed United can get a free transfer over the line.
