According to Spanish media, Manchester United has offered to sign Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen. This summer, Manchester United signed Mason Mount and Andre Onana from Chelsea and Inter Milan, respectively, and Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta for £72m yesterday. After offloading squad players, Man Utd will reportedly sign a center-back and midfielder before the transfer window closes. A source claims their interest in Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat would “accelerate soon.” Read complete details about Man Utd match Liverpool transfer bid for ex-Chelsea player with La Liga ready to make massive profit below.
Man Utd matches Liverpool’s transfer bid for an ex-Chelsea player, with La Liga ready to make a massive profit.
Everton, West Ham, and Tottenham want to sign Harry Maguire this summer as Erik ten Hag searches for a center-back. Man Utd may bid for former Chelsea defender Christensen to replace Maguire. Barcelona is now willing to sell the 27-year-old for €50m, but Man Utd’s offer doesn’t fulfill their expectations because they want the total amount fixed.
Barcelona will “only accept” such terms because they aim to use the money to recruit Joao Cancelo and Bernardo Silva from Man City this summer. Last week, the Spanish press reported that Liverpool had boosted their proposal for Christensen to €50m after their €30m deal was rejected. Man Utd’s bid follows. Onana made his Old Trafford debut on Saturday as the Red Devils defeated Lens 3-1 in a pre-season friendly.
On playing at Old Trafford, Onana told the club’s official website: “A great experience, I’m so happy for my first game here, my [home] debut, and I’m proud of the work of the team,” Onana said.
“It was a great welcome for me, it was very warm. I’m happy, especially with the victory today, it’s important. Now, we have to get ready for the coming games.”
On the match, Onana added: “We can always be better. I’m responsible for everything, especially regarding the goals [we concede]. So, I’m proud of what my defenders did.
“I’m the big man behind, so I take all the critics and pressure. It was a great game – for me, for the guys. We scored important goals, and I’m happy with everything.
“It’s important to play games, win, keep the ball, keep good pressure. We are one of the best teams in the world, so we just have to show it on the pitch.”
