Manchester United players have taken a well-deserved rest during the break between the national teams and hope to continue their impressive march on several fronts.
As the Glazers are nearing the completion of the sale of the club, rosy times are coming for the red half of Manchester.
United will be looking for serious reinforcements in the summer, and a number of names have been linked with the club in recent weeks.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano spoke about one of these goals, confirming United’s interest in Manu Kone in his column on transfers for Caughtoffside.
The Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder was a divine touch to the German team, and his excellent form did not go unnoticed.
There are rumors that Kone is in the sights of PSG, and in a recent interview, the 21-year-old player mentioned the possibility of moving to the Paris team.
“PSG’s interest? You know that I am a Parisian, I was born and studied here.
“There is a logical connection. But whether it’s Paris or another club, it doesn’t matter to me. I just want to play. If I have to leave, I will think about the game as a priority,” he said.
Chelsea were also looking for Kone, but, according to Romano, the Londoners are likely to choose more proven talents from the PL, such as Declan Rice and Romeo Lavia.
United have been purring under new manager Eric ten Haag in what has so far been a brilliant debut campaign.
However, the 20-time champions of England are far from ready, and next summer they will certainly try to strengthen their midfield.
Marcel Zabitzer has done a commendable job so far for the Red Devils after his hastily concluded deadline day arrival from Bayern Munich.
However, doubts remain as to whether the player loaned from the Bavarian giants will receive a permanent deal in the summer due to connections with other midfielders.
Kone is perfect for Ten Haga’s long-term vision at Old Trafford, teaming up with Casemiro at the centre of United’s midfield, providing the perfect balance.
Expect this story to develop further in the coming weeks and months.
