Imagine him & Casemiro: ETH could form dream Man Utd duo by signing £35m “revelation”

With a rumoured interest in midfielder Mason Mount, Manchester United is certainly in the market for players this summer. Currently, the Red Devils appear set to sign another Chelsea player.

Man United are allegedly planning to sabotage Manchester City’s efforts to recruit Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic this summer, according to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness).

According to the source, the Reds are putting up a strong effort to signal that they are prepared to invest significantly in order to give Erik ten Hag a top-notch squad while also competing with Bayern Munich and the Premier League champions for the player’s signature.

Would Kovacic fit in well at Manchester United?

By adding some sound physicality and another player with a strong winning mentality to the locker room and the pitch, the Croatian midfielder—once dubbed a “revelation” by Garth Crooks—could present himself as a sufficient solution for the issues that Man United have encountered this season.

When you consider Kovacic’s obvious qualities as well as his relationship with Casemiro that they developed at Real Madrid, you can see the type of player that Dutch coach Ten Hag is desperate to use in the midfield. Ten Hag has a history of showing interest in Frenkie de Jong.

The former Los Blancos colleagues frequently fought for the defensive position in midfield alongside Toni Kroos and Luca Modric, but on occasion they were used as a tandem and brought home three Champions League titles and a league triumph.

Due to their unmatched expertise from numerous victories in the renowned competition, Ten Hag could now bring the pair back together and help Man United create the ideal midfield pairing that might spark a spectacular run in Europe the following season.

While Casemiro is a strong force in the deepest midfield position, the club would greatly benefit from having a player like Kovacic by his side who can advance the ball and cover the ground needed to both maintain and win possession with ease.

The 29-year-old star, whose reported price tag is £35 million, according to Sofascore, has an 86% pass completion rate and has successfully completed 66% of his dribble attempts over 27 Premier League appearances this season. He also has two assists, four big chances created, and an 86% pass completion rate.

Having said that, if the chance to sign Kovacic to Man United in the summer presents itself, it would be a no-brainer because of his successful experience playing with Casemiro and diversified midfield skills, which make him the ideal player to enhance the squad.
