England star linked with Man United transfer ‘ready for Old Trafford move’ as Erik ten Hag demand emerges



England star linked with Man United transfer ‘ready for Old Trafford move’ as Erik ten Hag demand emerges

Erik ten Hag is confirmed to stay at Manchester United which means transfer business can fully start with the Reds needing plenty of signings and sales during the summer window.

Money will be tight for Man United this summer after missing out on Champions League football, but some key sales – such as Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood – could raise some serious funds to reinvest in the squad.

While United are targeting at least one centre-back, a left-back and a central midfielder, a striker is also on the wishlist – but it won’t be Benjamin Sesko, who has opted to sign a new contract at RB Leipzig despite reported interest from United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Ivan Toney has been repeatedly linked with a move to Old Trafford and with just a year remaining on his Brentford contract, the forward – currently at Euro 2024 with England – could be a smart option for the Reds.

Speaking to talkSPORT on Tuesday regarding his future, Toney said “I’m a Brentford player. I have a year left [at Brentford]. Going into a major tournament, that is my main focus now.

But after this, I’ll be going back to Brentford and I will be a Brentford player still.

It’s nice to be linked with other clubs. But I’ve had this in the past. Nothing is done until it’s done.”

When pressed on whether he is prepared for a big move if the call comes this summer, Toney replied: “Obviously, if it was to come, I would be ready.

But I’ve got to remain focused and not let other things and other noise get the best of me and just focus on what I need to do for my club.”

Meanwhile, Benni McCarthy has worked as an attacking coach for United since 2022 but is coming to the end of his contract this summer.

While he admitted that he ‘absolutely adores and loves’ his role at United, he is itching to be a manager.

According to The Times, Ten Hag would like United to hand McCarthy fresh terms after bringing him to Old Trafford in 2022.
