“Ready to go”: Man United in hot pursuit of World Cup winning midfielder

Posted by

In addition to winning the Carabao Cup and being in the running for the FA Cup and Europa League, Manchester United has performed admirably thus far this season.

Although manager Erik ten Hag has downplayed those prospects and stated that his squad is just focusing on one match at a time, there is even a remote possibility of winning the Premier League.

Yet despite the team’s lack of depth in some places, the Dutch coach deserves recognition for turning around the team’s fortunes in such a short period of time.

Next season, a midfielder will be needed.
It is a well-known truth that the present squad lacks a top goal scorer, and injuries and bans have made it clear that the pitch’s center has to be strengthened.

Donny van de Beek, Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay, and Casemiro all have long-term injuries that keep them out of action. Casemiro also received a four-game suspension.

Many midfielders, like Jude Bellingham, Frenkie de Jong, and Declan Rice, have been linked to United, but the most of them will cost a fortune.

Given that signing an excellent striker is the Red Devils’ top objective, their budget for a midfielder may fall short of their expectations.

Alexis Mac Allister, a dynamic midfielder for Brighton, is one candidate that has recently been mentioned.

Football Insider claims that a number of Premier League teams, including United, have entered the search for the Argentine.

“Arsenal, Man United and Man City have joined Liverpool in expressing an interest in Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, sources have informed Football Insider.

The Seagulls are eager to sell the midfielder if their £70 million asking price is reached, but Liverpool have started the bidding for his services.

The World Cup winner race has begun.
The Argentina international has told those close to him that he is “ready to leave” to a larger club this summer after spending more than four years as a Seagull.

The World Cup champion, who has the versatility to play as a No 10 and also as the defensive center, has managed to collect seven goals in 22 games across all competitions.

Brighton is notorious for being very difficult to bargain with, as Chelsea and City discovered earlier this season, and they will only transfer Mac Allister for a record fee given the player’s contract, which runs until June 2025 with an additional 12-month extension option available to Brighton.
