Manchester United: Red Devils interested in Carney Chukwuemeka

Manchester United: Red Devils interested in Carney Chukwuemeka -Manchester United News

Manchester United are interested in a move for Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka, talkSPORT report.

The Lowdown: Midfielders wanted

The Red Devils have made two summer signings so far in left-back Tyrell Malacia and free agent Christian Eriksen, and it certainly looks as if more midfielders are high on Erik ten Hag’s wishlist.

After Eriksen’s move to Old Trafford on a three-year deal was confirmed, United remain on the hunt for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, having apparently agreed on a fee with the Catalan club.

It could well be a busy few weeks off the pitch ahead of the new season, and it seems as if United hold an interest in another midfielder in Chukwuemeka.

The Latest: Chukwuemeka’s future

TalkSPORT provided an update regarding Chukwuemeka’s future on Thursday. They claim that Villa have placed a £20m price tag on the 18-year-old, who is attracting interest from United, Barcelona, Manchester City and Newcastle.

Villa have left Chukwuemeka out of their pre-season tour to Australia due to his situation as he enters the final 12 months of his Villa Park deal.

The Verdict: Barcelona hold an advantage?

It looks as if United will need to pay Villa’s full £20m asking price this summer to sign the ‘special’ (via Jacek Kulig) Chukwuemeka. If they don’t and the midfielder remains in the Midlands, Barcelona could be in pole position for a January swoop.

Premier League - Manchester United v Everton

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

Cross border rules mean that the Spanish giants could take advantage of Chukwuemeka’s contract situation, whereas United wouldn’t be able to offer any pre-contract agreement.

The England youth international appears to be a star of the future with a number of European giants keen, so United chiefs may have some thinking to do if they seriously want to secure his services.
