New-look right-sided attack but no Rashford: How Man United could lineup with £85m star
From now until the end of the summer transfer season, Manchester United appears to be Europe’s busiest team.
The Red Devils have almost completed the signing of Real Madrid defensive midfielder Casemiro for a rumored fee of up to £70 million (Paul Hirst).
Although he is unlikely to play against Liverpool on Monday night, the South American is anticipated to arrive in Manchester soon (Fabrizio Romano).
The hardworking Brazilian, who would become Erik ten Hag’s most costly signing to date, is not the only high-profile name connected with a sensational move to Old Trafford.
Another player believed to be lobbying for a reunion with his former manager is Ajax winger Antony, and according to French writer Santi Aouna, United is prepared to launch a remarkable £85 million (€100 million) offer for the 22-year-old winger.
However, despite having Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot available to him in more defensive positions, ten Hag allegedly believes the right-back position is a vulnerability.
The 20-time league winners are rumored to be keen on a deal with Barcelona for USMNT full-back Sergio Dest (Miguel Delaney), and the final two weeks of the transfer window could see them bring in three new players, including Casemiro, and so we have speculated how ten Hag may line up his team if every deal is completed.
