Ten Hag eyes Man Utd swoop for “underrated” £50m “leader”, he could make Mount thrive

Posted by

Mason Mount, who was already announced by Manchester United as their first midfield signing of the summer, has already been joined by another player who might play with him in the middle of the pitch in 2019.

How has Man United’s interest in Romeo Lavia changed recently?

The Daily Mail reports that Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia is still a target for Manchester United this summer.

According to the report, the Red Devils are only waiting for outgoings to be confirmed before making a move, but they are still prepared to compete with Premier League rivals Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea for the player’s services.

What is the price of Romeo Lavia?

While Lavia is said to have a £40 million buy-back clause with Manchester City, Southampton is optimistic that they can charge a £50 million transfer fee from rival teams looking to sign the young player before the start of the next season. This transfer fee might be a roadblock for Erik ten Hag.

Despite a history of extravagant spending, Man United is approaching its summer transfer window much more cautiously and is eager to dispose a number of players who aren’t up to par in order to increase transfer cash and down the salary bill.

Just a few of the players rumoured to be up for sale this summer are Donny van de Beek, Fred, Hannibal Mejbri, and Scott McTominay. Should the club be successful in selling the midfielders for a profit, it would undoubtedly open the door for Ten Hag to sign Lavia this summer.

Despite Saints’ relegation from the Premier League, the Man City graduate has drawn attention for his outstanding displays in the team’s midfield. Alongside Casemiro in a deeper role, he may hold the secret to Mount’s success at Old Trafford.

The rising talent from Belgium has various ball-winning skills, placing in the top 30% of his positional peers in the top five European leagues over the past 12 months for interceptions, tackles, blocks, successful take-ons, and pass completion, according to FBref.

Lavia is the ideal player to create attacking opportunities, play killer passes, or feed shot-creating opportunities to Mount. He is efficient at taking the ball away from his opponents and offers great accuracy in his passing range. This makes him the perfect player for Man United and their new signing, who will be eager to impress next season.

More than only the team that is interested in signing him this summer have taken notice of the young sensation, as shown by the tweet from Jacek Kulig, a football talent scout:

“Roméo Lavia is an incredibly underappreciated passer. birth year 2004. maturity and excellence. Excellent talent.a prominent Premier League club and the future captain of Belgium’s national team in midfield.

In light of this, Lavia is undoubtedly someone to keep an eye on for the Red Devils as they work to rebuild their team for the future. He may be a member of the talent pipeline that takes the team back to its former glory and numerous trophy success.

The 5 foot 11 star, together with Mount, is expected to drive United’s title defence next season from the centre of the field.
