Man United’s pursuit of new players…
Observing the Red Devils’ 2-2 draw against an injury-ravaged Tottenham Hotspur team on Sunday while he was in the house for the first time, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, 71, will have enough to ponder as he attempts to change the footballing culture at Old Trafford.

On the surface, the INEOS billionaire appears to be a significant player who is eager to support Erik ten Hag in developing long-term plans and integrating young players into a system that will enable them to shine for many years at the Premier League’s biggest clubs. Arthur Vermeeren, a midfielder for Royal Antwerp, has reportedly been identified as a target for a possible summer transfer, according Football Insider.

The Red Devils are reportedly “all over” the 18-year-old’s position, having communicated with his agent on a frequent basis. They may attempt to pull off a swoop that would start at £25 million and increase to about £50 million due to different performance-related add-ons.

Ten Hag’s team is also attempting to set the foundation for a potential later this year pursuit of Joao Neves, the standout player for Benfica. Despite this, the Portuguese giants’ manager Roger Schmidt has stated unequivocally that the 19-year-old would not, under any circumstances, be sold this month.

Nevertheless, United have also already made contact with an experienced striker who is open to a transfer back to England, according to a recent report.

Eric Choupo-Moting is amenable to joining Man United
Speaking to GiveMeSport, transfer expert Romano has stated that Bayern Munich forward Eric Choupo-Moting might be “open” to joining Manchester United this month.

According to earlier rumours, there may have been communication over a move between his representatives and the Red Devils. Serhou Guirassy, the Stuttgart poacher, and Donyell Malen, the Borussia Dortmund agent, have also been contacted.

“Yeah, I think he will be open to that,” Romano said to the source. I’ve also heard that Bayern Munich is really pleased with him since, whenever they’ve needed him, he’s always been quite professional, on point, and accessible under ideal circumstances.”

“Bayern would like to keep him, even though they have Harry Kane, because Mathys Tel is very young, he’s doing fantastic but he’s very young.”

The 34-year-old, who was called “great” by previous manager Julian Nagelsmann, has made 20 appearances this season in all competitions and scored three goals (Choupo-Moting statistics – Transfermarkt).

Though he doesn’t look like a standout mid-season addition, the former Stoke City player might provide some valuable attacking experience for the rest of the season in addition to dependable support for Anthony Martial and Rasmus Hojlund, so this is a short-term option to keep an eye on.
