Manchester United are in the market big time this summer as Jose Mourinho have already wrapped up deals for Swedish defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton to add their artilery. But it is believed that the Red Devils are still in the market for a midfielder and they are desperate to land a midfielder before the window closes.
Here are five midfield players Manchester United can sign this summer.
- Eric Dier
It is believed that United have made a £40 million bid for Eric Dier but that has not been confirmed by either club, according to Sky Sports. The England international will surely be a decent addition for United but Spurs are in a strong position and may demand a lot to let their midfielder go. Dier, signed a new contract last year and it has to be a worthy offer that can lure him at the Old Trafford.
- Marco Asensio
Real Madrid youngster is also under their radar as the 21 year old has been a sensation at the Bernabeu last season. But United will have to rival Juventus and Arsenal to acquire his signing.
- Nemanja Matic
The former Benfica man is available and Chelsea are willing to sell him to United. His defensive steel and offensive attributes will be welcomed but as per as reports Juventus may also be United’s wall between the player and them as the Italians are believed to want him more than the current Europa League holders.
- Renato Sanches
The young Portuguese is up for grabs for United as Bayern will allow him to leave for 42 million pounds. United also want Arturo Vidal but Bayern cleared it that the Chilean is not for sale but Sanches is available.
- Marco Veratti
PSG’s midfield maestro wasn’t United’s initial target but recent reports claim that Jose may look to get the Italian and an amount around 35 million euros may be enough.
