Man United would have to break the bank for 22-year-old to move to Old Trafford

Posted by

Man United has had a successful summer transfer window thus far, with Erik ten Hag securing all of his key objectives.

The club seems to have benefited from the Dutchman’s firm attitude on which players he wants to keep and which ones he wants to bring in, but it wouldn’t hurt to add one or two more before the transfer market closes on September 1.

Sofyan Amrabat of Fiorentina is anticipated to be the next player to enter Old Trafford, but another name has lately come to light.

Amadou Onana, a star for Everton who is unrelated to United custodian Andre, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, but as the Liverpool ECHO points out, Sean Dyche is more impressed with his player than Romeo Lavia, who has agreed to a £60 million transfer from Southampton to Chelsea.

Here we go, Roméo Lavia to Chelsea! Agreement reached between clubs on final fee under £60 million with add-ons included; structure also reached.

Lavia, who was recently informed by the clubs that an agreement has been struck, will undergo medical tests this week.

Although it’s unclear if Old Trafford officials would approve a deal at that price, the Liverpool ECHO is informed that Man United has not made an inquiry about the player as of yet.

A late window deal is certainly feasible with two and a half weeks left in the current transfer window, but much will likely depend on how well the Red Devils do in their upcoming matches.

If ten Hag decides Onana is worthwhile of pursuing, a win against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening Premier League match of 2023/24 wasn’t without its issues, which may tempt the powers that be to acquiesce to a proposal.
