It was a strong season for manchester united during which Erik ten Hag guided the legendary team back to the Champions League with a third-place finish. However, now that they are in the Champions League it is important to improve their depth. They will not be able to rotate as much in the Champions League matches and Mark Rashford He can’t play as many minutes as he has been. With Lisandro Martinez recovering from a season-ending injury and plenty of players to offload this summer, it has the makings for a busy time for the Red Devils.
This is a team hoping to challenge for Premier League titles and as currently built, that is not possible with manchester city leaps and bounds ahead of the peloton. With from the arsenal improvement, and Newcastle United revitalization, simply staying in the top four would be a successful season for Manchester United, but with the right additions, they can close the gap in the league.

First confirmed signing
July 5th —Mason Mount is a Manchester United player, the midfielder arriving from Chelsea in a deal worth an initial £55m with possible £5m add-ons. The 24-year-old, who will wear the number 7 shirt at Old Trafford, has signed a five-year contract with an option for a further 12 months.
“Leaving the club where you grew up is never easy, but Manchester United will provide me with an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career,” Mount said. “Having competed against them, I know how strong the team I’m joining is, and I can’t wait to be a part of this group’s drive to win major trophies.”
“Everyone can see that the club has made great strides under Erik ten Hag. Having met the manager and discussed his plans, I couldn’t be more excited for the seasons ahead and I’m ready for the hard work ahead here.” I am enormously ambitious; I know how amazing it feels to win big trophies and what it takes to do it. I will give everything to experience that again at Manchester United.”
Al Nassr and United fight for Onana
July 5th —Manchester United have made an opening offer to Inter for Andre Onana, believed to be worth up to £40m. However, he received a lucrative offer from Al Nassr, as the Saudi giants try to attract one of the most prominent goalkeepers in the game from both Inter and United. Onana, whose excellent form led Inter to the Champions League final in June, is Al Nassr’s first goal target and they are confident they can quickly reach an agreement with Inter, putting the ball in the court of the Cameroonian as to whether you want to withhold. he was moving to Old Trafford.
De Gea contract crisis
June 27th — For a long time it seemed a question of when, not if, De Gea’s contract would be extended. All parties agreed that a pay cut on the goalkeeper’s current contract of £375,000 a week was the right thing to do, but what came next is quite remarkable. Athletic reports that De Gea had not only accepted new terms, but had signed a contract. The problem is that United failed to do so, and instead came back with a counter offer for an even lower salary that the 32-year-old has yet to accept. His current terms expire on June 30.
With Onana in his sights, it is perhaps no surprise that United are looking to cut costs for a player whose limitations on the ball mean he would be better suited to a back-up role. However, his actions in convincing De Gea to take a pay cut and then asking him to take an even bigger one are unlikely to impress many in the market.
United in talks for Hojlund
June 15 — While Manchester United continues to search for a new striker, a new profile emerges as they look for alternatives to Kane. Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund is a potential target, but the Danish striker won’t be easy. In fact, Hojlund joined the Italian side last summer from Austrian side Sturm Graz in a deal worth around €17m and he did not disappoint in his debut season, scoring ten goals and providing four assists in 34 games. Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Manchester United will soon submit an offer, while Atalanta have already set a price of 60 million euros to sell the talented striker. In addition, Hojlund recently signed with the SEG agency, which also represents Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.
United say they are pulling out harry kane chase
June 14th — One name that United would have immediately improved upon is Harry Kane, as Tottenham’s talisman could be on the move after Tottenham failed to qualify for European football. Kane scored 30 league goals last season and has been among the most consistent strikers in the Premier League, so it’s clear why United would covet him, but the price is proving to be an issue and now, according to reports, United have withdrawn from the race to sign him. Daniel Levy is always a tough negotiator. At 29, United don’t want to break the bank for Kane, especially when he could be out of contract next season. With Victor Osimhen Also costing close to £150m, it won’t be cheap to find a striker on the market, but as the summer progresses someone will move in and set the market up.
