Premier League will be back in action from this weekend after the World Cup qualifiers and International friendlies. Upcoming seven league games and two mid week Europa games will not only be crucial in deciding if United will qualify for Champions League or not but also effect the transfer market deals United have planned.
Firstly talking about the upcoming game against West Brom, the main goalscorer of the team Zlatan is still serving his ban and will not be available for this match along with Herera. Pogba got injured against Chelsea and as reported by Jose yesterday he along with Phil Jones and Smalling who got injured while on national duties will also not make it to the playing squad.
So, Manchester United will be without its two preferred center backs and Bailey along with Rojo are the only options left as of now. Carrick and Felleni are two obvious options in the mid along with Rashford at the front. The team will be without 5 of its main players that too in situation where they need to win at any cost in order to stay in the race of the top four finish.
Moving onto the transfer rumors, Griezmann is the most talked about and as per the reports on various portals the deal has also be nearly finalized but everything depends on whether United is able to qualify for the Champions League or not. Same goes for Lukaku who is trying to find a way out of Everton in order to win some trophies and Mourinho should not back out of this opportunity to sign a player he earlier sold during his time at Chelsea.
Other names that have been linked to United are Ozil, Sanchez and Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal but it would depend on whether Wenger stays as manager or not next season as i don’t see any possibility of deals between these two eyeing their history. From Chelsea, Matic has been seen as long term replacement of Carrick along with Willian whom Mourinho admires a lot.
Next up in rumors market are Dier, Alli and Kane from Spurs but none of these three will end up at United next season according to me. United is also said to be highly interested in Monaco star Mbappe who has been in sensational form this season. United has already sold 4 players this season and two three more departures look evident along with the uncertainty over the future of both Carrick and Zlatan who have not yet extended their contract.
Reportedly Manchester United will be in the market for 4 specialist players including a center back, two midfielders and one all out striker. I personally hope Griezmann agrees to join United as it would be great both for him and the Premier League to have a player of his quality.
