Deal close as club expect Man United offer in hours rather than days

Posted by

The countdown to the end of the summer transfer window has already begun and Man United are one of the clubs that need to get busy in the final few days to get deals over the line.

A move to West Ham for Harry Maguire now seems definitively off, whilst a switch to Real Sociedad for Donny van de Beek has stalled.

The former now appears keen to stay at the club and fight for his place, whilst the latter really does need to leave in the current window in order to get significant game time elsewhere.

It’s the deal for van de Beek that’s been holding up any switch for Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat, however, according to La Nazione, the Serie A outfit are expecting things to move quickly now.

The outlet note that the Dutchman is about to be sold, meaning that contacts between United and Fiorentina can accelerate.

Any offer below €25m is likely to be rebuffed, however, as the suggestion is that the Italian side will not settle for a penny less.

At such a late stage in the transfer window, it seems to be a rather churlish exercise to be bartering over a few euros here and there, so the deal could go through fairly quickly once the clubs are back in contact again.

It’s not clear as to whether that will be Erik ten Hag’s last signing of the window, though even if it is, he can look back on a decent summer’s work in terms of squad evolution.

  1. First glazers should go never ever to be remembered again, they have destroyed Manchester United

    1. The United worldwide fan’s must force that Glazers family out before the transfer shutoff any means

  2. Glazars should find the manager to get good players that can fit the test of football just like Pep Gadiola did to man city . ETH need Amrabat for DM and Pavart in the defence pls,sign these two if not any.or sell the club to those who can bring back the wining streak of Manchester United

    1. if you refuse to sign pavad and amrabad so glazes we dont want to see you at man united club please and please you should do that to your fans

  3. Game vs Wolves showed too many players still off the pace and EtH usually integrates new recruits sensibly, so it is time to force Maguire’s hands by signing Pavard/Todibo Amrabat & Bayinder (£60m) now and securing Amadou Onana for the winter window (unless a swap for McSauce + £10m can be done now).

    A bit of a risk moving on van de Beek, Bailly, Henderson & Williams before the window shuts, where, with Maguire, we should recoup £90m – potentially 4 squad-strengthening quality players in for 6 leaving (not including Fred, Telles, De Gea etc, who’ve already moved on).

    In hindsight, this should have been prioritised over Mount, where patience could have saved another £10m-£15m, as I would argue McSauce (or even Lindelof) would have been more effective alongside Casemiro, providing the midfield resilience absent vs Wolves.

  4. They must sign Amrabat, parvad, and a back up triker like leanardo then focus on selling this players like Anthony M, Maguire.,Mctomnay,Van den Beek, Bailey whilst they really know for sure that they won’t be game time for them

  5. our display against Wolves was dreadful,Wan bissaka played well,but the rest were very poor and gave the ball away time and time again.I hope Ten Hag can sort this out before spurs away.

  6. Manu as a club is big so we need players that can fit in our club not player who can not even possess the ball. Let us add on Amrabat and pavard for the start and then bring on onana in the January.

  7. Man u coachs and board should do something new and bring in good and quality player and offload so many players like maguire and they rest

  8. Please try and sell some plays and bring in others that will fit to the team we need winning this time.
