Manchester United is looking for a new midfielder this summer.
After losing four senior midfielders at the end of the 2021-22 season, the Red Devils are understandably looking for at least one quality midfielder this summer.
Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong is at the top of new manager Erik ten Hag’s wishlist, and various reports claim that the 20-time league champions are in ‘direct talks’ with the Catalan giants about a potential £73 million (€85 million) move.
When it comes to other areas of their squad that may require strengthening, it is widely expected that the Premier League heavyweights will try to bring in a new center-back.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the club is interested in Ajax’s Jurrien Timber and Villarreal’s Pau Torres.
“I see Pau Torres playing in the Premier League next season because the player wants a Premier League move,” the Italian trade guru remarked recently on The United Stand. Pau Torres is a strong candidate for a move to the Premier League.
“For Timber, he is only waiting for Man United to update him on the situation with Ajax, so I am confident that the [delay in negotiations] is not the player’s fault.”
“Both players would welcome the opportunity to join Manchester United.”
