Manchester United would make a “real good signing” in James Ward-Prowse if he joins from Southampton this summer, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke of GIVEMESPORT.

Ward-Prowse has more than three years left on his £100,000-per-week contract and has been linked with a move away from the south coast.

Manchester United transfer news – James Ward-Prowse
According to Football Insider, United manager Erik ten Hag is interested in bringing midfield maestro Ward-Prowse to the club this summer.

Despite having plenty of time left on his contract, Ward-Prowse is expected to leave Southampton this season, owing to the club’s precarious league position.

Southampton’s decade-long stay in the Premier League appears to be coming to an end, casting doubt on Ward-Prowse’s future.

Dean Jones, a transfer insider, recently told GIVEMESPORT that this summer was Ward-Prowse’s “last chance” to secure a big-money move to one of England’s top clubs.

Jones believes Ward-Prowse, who has been with Saints since he was a teenager and is valued at £34 million by Transfermarkt, should pack his bags and leave the club, even if they stay up this season.

According to Football Insider, ten Hag’s United are one of several clubs keeping an eye on the 11-cap England international’s future.

What has Pete O’Rourke said about Ward-Prowse to United?
In an interview with GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke hinted that United could take advantage of Southampton’s uncertain status in the Premier League to snare their club captain.

“Obviously, having someone like Ward-Prowse providing ammunition for your forwards will only add to their firepower and it could be a real good signing for United,” O’Rourke said of the 28-year-old.

“That goes for anyone else as well, because he’s a proven Premier League player, and as I said, his set-piece deliveries will definitely add more goals to whoever gets him.”

Who else has been linked with a move for Ward-Prowse this summer?
Newcastle United are also said to be interested in Ward-Prowse.

According to Football Insider, Eddie Howe has identified Ward-Prowse – who Pep Guardiola once dubbed the best free-kick taker in the world – as a potential summer acquisition, with the English midfielder tipped to move from the south coast to the north-east.

Aston Villa, who had a move for Ward-Prowse rejected in July 2021, and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in signing the Portsmouth-born midfielder at the end of the season, according to the same source.
