Barcelona Keen to sign Man United wonderkid as first summer deal ‘agreed’

The 2024 transfer window is finally open – and Manchester United look set to start with a huge signing this summer.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has already promised significant investment into the Red Devils’ current playing squad. That will certainly excite current manager Erik ten Hag.

The Dutchman’s future was previously up in the air but he has been told that he will be staying. He could also sign a new deal at Old Trafford.

Barcelona keen on Mainoo
Man United academy graduate Kobbie Mainoo was one of the Red Devils’ breakout stars at Old Trafford last season. But he might not be at the club for very long.

According to reports in Belgium, Spanish giants Barcelona are interested in moving for the young midfielder. The Red Devils, however, are also trying to do all they can to keep him.

It is suggested that Man United officials are aware of Barca’s interest and have opened talks regarding a new deal. Mainoo’s representatives are asking for an extension to his current deal with a significant wage increase.

The 19-year-old has three years left on his deal at Old Trafford.

Red Devils agree Branthwaite terms

And it appears that a deal could be close. According to The Times, Man United have agreed personal terms with the England centre-back regarding a move.

It is reported that the Red Devils would be willing to pay him between £150,000 and £160,000 per week. However, there now remains the hurdle of agreeing a deal with Everton.
