Man United line up £51m Mount upgrade who’s “having an impressive season”



Man United line up £51m Mount upgrade who’s “having an impressive season”

Manchester United have struggled to perform on the pitch this season but you can’t dispute the loyalty and support of the fan base.

Rain or shine, the Red Devils cheer their team on in booming, infectious voice. Last week, a chastening 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace sent United to new depths under Erik ten Hag but the visiting faithful roared and clapped and cajoled the first-team squad, who failed to repay the faith.

Ten Hag’s eighth-placed Premier League strugglers need to tailor their strategy this summer but Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have sparked optimism that the ship can be steadied.

Much needs to happen during the off-season, however, to narrow the canyon that United’s arch-rivals reside on the other side of.

Man United’s summer transfer plans
A clearout must be the first port of call for the United bosses this summer: too many high-paid stars have failed to impress and the club will not rebuild without a certain streak of ruthlessness, and the likes of Casemiro, Raphael Varane, Christian Eriksen and more are in troubled waters – with only Kobbie Mainoo, Rasmus Hojlund and Alejandro Garnacho seemingly untouchable.

Others must be permitted more time to find their feet, with Mason Mount a perfect example of this.

Signing from Chelsea for an initial £55m fee last summer, the England international has endured a torrid campaign but it’s improbable that he will be ousted this year.

Despite this, Man United are understood to be interested in RB Leipzig’s Dani Olmo, who, according to Spanish newspaper SPORT, could be on the move this summer, with plenty of admirers

Olmo is also attracting attention from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, while Barcelona have long been known suitors after releasing the Spaniard during his youth.

Leipzig will hold out for a fee of €60m (£51m), and Ratcliffe, Dan Ashworth and co will need to decide whether to launch such a fee on the player, who could further impact Mount’s career next term.
