Fabrizio Romano ascertains Man Utd midfield signing is coming, and a familiar face could make it a dual.
Fabrizio Romano revealed that Manchester United have decided to sign “at least” one midfielder this summer, and that the agreement is not contingent on Marcel Sabitzer’s future.

It is widely believed that the Red Devils will prioritize recruiting an elite striker this summer. The Manchester Evening News recently reported that Erik ten Hag is concerned about the ‘limitations’ of his strikeforce.

This season, Marcus Rashford has been sensational in scoring a career-high 29 goals. Bruno Fernandes is the only other United player with double-digit points.

Antony, Jadon Sancho, and Anthony Martial were all mentioned as possible causes for concern for Ten Hag. Despite costing a combined £216,4 million, the triumvirate has scored only 22 goals in all competitions this season.

However, rumors have continued to circulate. Man United will look to acquire a new central midfielder once their striker needs are met.

Given that Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and Fred are all over 30 years old, such a move seems prudent. Furthermore, TEAMtalk has learned exclusively that Manchester United will consider proposals for Fred this summer.
The definitive acquisition of Marcel Sabitzer from Bayern Munich is one possibility. The Austrian has performed admirably during his six-month loan spell, but will no longer be included in Thomas Tuchel’s plans for Bayern Munich.

Recent German reports have detailed the relatively modest price at which Sabitzer can be acquired.

According to BILD, £16 million could be sufficient to close a transaction. Sport1 reports that a’suitable offer’ between £13.2m and £17.6m (€15m-€20m) will suffice.

Nevertheless, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, United are looking for another midfielder regardless of the Sabitzer situation.

Romano tweeted, “Manchester United have decided to sign at least one new midfielder this summer, regardless of what will occur with Marcel Sabitzer.”

The journalist added that a center-forward signing remains the “priority” but that a midfielder acquisition other than Sabitzer has now been elevated to “crucial” status.

Romano refrained from identifying the target of the Red Devils, though numerous media outlets believe they know the answer.
Which midfielder can Manchester United sign?

The MEN maintain their claims. United continues to maintain a keen interest in Jude Bellingham and Frenkie de Jong. Bellingham appears to be destined for Real Madrid, whereas De Jong continues to refuse to leave Barcelona.

Instead, rumors regarding Declan Rice, Alexis Mac Allister, Manu Kone, Adrien Rabiot, Mateo Kovacic, and Ruben Neves have been reported by various media outlets.

According to the Daily Mail, West Ham captain Declan Rice would command the same fee as Bellingham and De Jong. However, the Hammers’ interest in Scott McTominay could result in a significant discount.

Liverpool is currently the favorite to recruit Brighton’s Mac Allister, whereas Manchester City will be fierce competition for Mateo Kovacic if Ilkay Gundogan leaves via free agency.

Rabiot is arguably the most intriguing of the group, given United’s intense pursuit of him last summer. Adrien would have signed with Old Trafford if not for his mother’s sky-high wage demands. Veronique Rabiot doubles up as her son’s agent.

However, the most recent reports from Italy indicate that United and the Rabiot family have made “new direct contact.”

This summer, Adrien will also become a free agent, allowing United to invest more in his personal circumstances without incurring a transfer fee.
