Manchester United will want to put Sunday’s match against Aston Villa behind them. Instead, Erik ten Hag and the United faithful will want to turn their attention to January’s transfer window and adding depth to the squad.
High on the priority list will be the injection of new talent in the Red Devils’ midfield and attack.
Nearly half as old as Ronaldo is the Slovenian attacker, who is 19 years old.
With youth on his side, Sesko is developing in football’s top division. The Portuguese legend, on the other hand, might be aging.
Romano has doubts about the veracity of the rumors being spread.
Sesko is confident that the attacker will be joining the German team because the deal he signed for RB Leipzig last summer was set to be finalized in 2023.
Romano wrote in his exclusive CaughtOffside column, “Man United have been tracking him for a long time; this is not new – last summer Man United and Chelsea were interested, but he’s going to Leipzig.”
According to recent reports, the striker might leave Leipzig without ever having kicked a ball.
More of a sure thing
According to the Italian, United also have stakes in the race for Cody Gakpo‘s signature.
The winger recently became only the third player to have won the Eredivisie Player of the Month award in a row.
Romano confirmed that United held considerable interest in Gakpo, “one of Europe’s top talents”, before making Antony their top priority.
The red side of Manchester is still invested in the star, whose value will be close to €50m. Given the Dutch winger’s performances and development, the asking price could be a bargain.
Malo Gusto: Manchester United consider January deal for Olympique Lyonnais right back
Malo Gusto, a right back for Olympique Lyonnais, is reportedly a target for Manchester United.
Sports Illustrated’s 90 Minute Football reports that United might try to sign the 19-year-old in January.
Gusto is one of the most intriguing young full backs in the world, and numerous clubs are interested in him.
The Frenchman is technically adept and tactically astute. The Frenchman is technically adept and tactically astute.
A club like Man United need two good full-backs [on both sides] because we have a lot of games to cover.”
United could allow Aaron Wan-Bissaka to leave in the next window, making space for another right back.
Gusto would be the ideal option if United do consider a new signing.
A deal for the 19 year old, however, will not be easy to complete as the player is admired by plenty of European clubs.
The club must act efficiently to get this deal over the line.
