Manchester United

Heats up £34 million trade battle for La Liga star as Marcus Rashford challenges

Plans are in place for what is expected to be a pivotal month at Old Trafford, even though Erik ten Hag will be content to just make it to January in his role as Manchester United’s manager.

Even though the Dutchman has acknowledged that making any additions is “unlikely,” Ten Hag has the opportunity to bolster the team during the January transfer window as Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s £1.3 billion deal to acquire a 25% share in the team is almost ready to be completed. The Red Devils’ next Premier League match comes against Bournemouth at home on Saturday. United will be looking to build on their crucial 2-1 triumph against Chelsea on Tuesday.

The most recent information from Old Trafford is compiled here.

United finds out Valencia’s wonderkid’s asking price
Manchester United will need to spend £34 million to beat Juventus to the acquisition of Javi Guerra, a sensation from Valencia. At the young age of 20, the Spanish midfielder—who should not be confused with the now-retired former Cardiff City star of the same name—has lit up the Mestalla this season.

Valencia retaliated to Juventus’ £22 million approach by requesting a much higher sum, as reported by Estadio Deportivo via Football Espana. Valencia is not in a hurry to let go of Guerra, who has six caps for Spain’s under-21 team. Should Guerra’s value increase further this season, they may even hold out for his staggering £86 million release clause.

Ten Hag confronts Rashford with a challenge.

After benching Marcus Rashford against Chelsea, Erik ten Hag has issued a challenge to Rashford to regain his spot in the Manchester United starting lineup. Ten Hag was merciless with the England international after his awful performance at Newcastle, restricting him to a late appearance during Tuesday’s 2-1 victory.

Ten Hag said, “Rashford is an incredible, good player,” in the lead-up to the Bournemouth game. “You can’t play every game with 11 players, and he’s not at his best right now like he was last year, but I have no doubt that he will improve. Regarding Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire, I left it at that. Every time the squad lines up, the best players on the greatest team will take the field.”

Lille prodigy is coveted by United and City.

Manchester United and their fierce rivals Manchester City are expected to engage in yet another transfer slugfest. Leny Yoro, a teenage defender from Lille, has been signed by both Manchester United clubs in a “very concrete move,” according to French outlet le10sport.

Yoro, who turned eighteen last month, has had an outstanding season, and Lille is eager to sign him to a longer contract because his current one expires in 2025. This season, the right-footed center back has made 13 appearances in Ligue 1 and contributed two goals.
