‘Crucial’… Fabrizio Romano says Manchester United have been working on ‘top’ summer signing since September.



The term “crucial”… The ‘top’ summer signing has been in the works since September, according to Fabrizio Romano. Manchester United has had a peaceful transfer window thus far – but that won’t change this summer.

The most significant development for Manchester United this month has occurred off the field, as Ineos initiated the necessary preparations for the Premier League to approve their investment.Although transfer rumors have circulated, the majority of them have centered on possible arrivals during the summer transfer window.


Due to their at-best’mediocre’ performance thus far in the 2023–24 season, it is evident that Manchester United must bolster their lineup in a variety of positions.High on the list of Manchester United’s center-backs

In the position of center defense, Manchester United must improve and acquire a younger player. Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, and Raphael Varane are all older than thirty, and Victor Lindelof will do so in July.


Fabrizio Romano, speaking to The United Stand, described how Manchester United has been making preparations to resolve this position in the summer since discussions commenced several months ago.Romano stated, “The following center-back will be an indispensable acquisition in the summer.” They have already begun working on this with the reconnaissance department; Erik ten Hag has been a part of the effort since the end of September. “They had some internal deliberations regarding a new center-back, and their intention was to acquire a premier center-back during the summer transfer window.”


He further stated that there might be multiple acquisitions at the position, stating, “There might be two center-backs.” A premier one, and possibly one for the future and present. “This is going to be an extremely critical decision.”Possible names already in the mix

Numerous individuals have been associated with the matter, but Romano made it plain that it will truly begin to take shape only after Ineos names its sporting director and head of recruitment.


However, he did mention that Manchester United is interested in a few specific players, all of whom have already been linked with transfers to the club.These are Lenny Yoro of Lille, Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice, Antonio Silva of Benfica, Matthijs de Ligt of Bayern Munich, and Lenny Yoro of Lille.


Jarrad Branthwaite, a defender for Everton, has also been mentioned, with The Mail stating that the Toffees may be forced to sell this summer due to financial constraints.


Manchester United should not solely concentrate on bolstering their defense this summer. Further augmentations are necessary in the attacking and midfield positions, including a striker to succeed and surpass the departing Anthony Martial.
