Man United hierarchy have 22-year-old Premier League midfielder ‘under consideration’ ahead of summer transfer window: report

Man United are looking at Everton midfielder, Amadou Onana, as a possible transfer target ahead of the summer.

Manchester United Football Club are preparing for a pretty big summer transfer window. The clear-out job is going to be massive, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe overseeing some major changes.

Raphael Varane is leaving. No doubt many others will follow. Despite the fact that money is tight, United will not to stretch the budget as far as they can to replace the soon-to-be gaping holes with genuine quality.

A midfielder is somewhat high atop the list of priorities, with several names linked with filling that void. Today’s story on that front comes from the Manchester Evening News, who state that Everton’s Amadou Onana is a possible option.

According to the report, the United hierarchy have the 22-year-old Premier League midfielder ‘under consideration’ ahead of the summer transfer window.

The Belgian international has had an excellent season and I’ve been impressed with him whenever he has played United. He has fantastic mobility, ball-carrying skill and a decent range of passing for a defence-first midfielder.

If we’re talking the ideal Casemiro replacement in the modern-day game, Onana would be that guy. Energetic, a workaholic and an all-round solid footballer.

These sort of players do not grow on trees. As a result, United better be prepared to cough up big money to bring in someone like Onana. It’s clear Ratcliffe and INEOS are big fans of the midfielder’s, though luring him to Old Trafford is another matter entirely.

You’d also assume United would have to choose between Onana and Jarrad Branthwaite. I struggle to envisage the Merseyside club losing two of their prized assets, to the same buyer no less, in the same window.

Do you think a Man United move to sign Amadou Onana would make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
