Mercato: Manchester United is already preparing 2 big moves


By: Manu Tournoux

Little pause. If the Red Devils were not necessarily on a bad dynamic in recent weeks, they clearly fell back into their faults on Saturday, with this heavy 3-0 defeat against Bournemouth. Enough to unleash, once again, the English press, which is completely unleashed against the team which is in sixth position in the Premier League standings.

In England, it seems obvious that the Red Devils still need to recruit. In the offensive sector in particular, where most offensive players are disappointing, like Anthony Martial, Jadon Sancho or Antony. As the English media indicate, Manchester United already has two good avenues to strengthen the team in the coming months.

Two pretty names

The first is located only a few kilometers from Old Trafford, and takes us to the Etihad Stadium. The Sun indicates that Kalvin Phillips (Manchester City) is at the top of the list of players coveted by the club and by Erik ten Hag, who greatly appreciates the environment. Still very little used by Pep Guardiola – 89 minutes played in the Premier League this season – he could leave the club this winter, and the management of Manchester United also wants to bet on English players.

The other player who is very popular in the Mancunian offices is none other than Loïs Openda, who needs no introduction since we knew him well from Lens. The Belgian striker is a hit in Leipzig, with 14 goals and 3 assists in 19 games, including the Bundesliga and the Champions League. THE Mirror explains that he has been scouted on numerous occasions and that he is considered the ideal replacement for Sancho and Martial who should quickly pack their bags. Nice names, but we know, Manchester United have crushed some good players in recent years…
