BACK David Tully Jun 26th 2024 Manchester United hold an interest in Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, according to I News. Newcastle have been in talks with the Toffees about signing the 27-year-old but they have been put off by his £40m asking price. I News, however, claim that Erik ten Hag’s side and AC Milan are still weighing up bids for Calvert-Lewin. Considering the forward’s poor recent form and woeful injury record, supporters on X are very much against a move for the player: I’m tired of this team — Ghana Yesu (@GhanaYesu_) June 25, 2024 Please no — Deng™ (@UTDDengv2) June 25, 2024 He’ll be injured on his way to the medical. — Ajay AJ (@AjayTweets07) June 25, 2024 We better stay away — Future (@Utdfuture) June 25, 2024 Don’t sign this MID lol — 𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙤 ✰ (@Brunosprop) June 25, 2024 40m for hospital bills?!🤣 — AndreWhatYouDoing (@ManUtdHorrorDay) June 25, 2024 We don’t need this transfer — Nicholas 🇬🇧🇳🇬 (@ezele_nick) June 25, 2024 This must be a joke. has not palyed football for the last 2 seasons. I would even pick Martial over him. — DividendLearning (@Dividend_Learn) June 25, 2024 United are keen to provide competition for Hojlund With Anthony Martial set to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the month, ten Hag will have Rasmus Hojlund as his only genuine no.9 in his squad. A new striker is, therefore, a top priority for the summer transfer window, but the club need to be careful that they don’t sign someone who could stunt the growth of Hojlund. As an older, more experienced player, Calvert-Lewin could provide a decent option off the bench but there is no way United would pay £40m for him. Are other forwards being targeted? The club are known to be tracking Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee but, despite reports suggesting they are willing to pay the Dutchman’s £34m release clause, no formal offer has been tabled so far. A cheaper alternative, that has been mentioned in recent days, is Lille’s Jonathan David. The Canadian is in the final year of his contract and he could cost as little as £21m. There is, though, expected to be competition for his signature from the likes of Chelsea, West Ham and Spurs.
