INEOS, Manchester United’s new owners, look to change the club’s recruitment strategies after a lengthy period of excessive spending with very limited success. They plan to implement more systematic and cost-effective methods to strengthen and improve overall performance of the club.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe

Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants to get the structure right and is also looking for the best in-class talent with Omar Berrada to join as CEO from Manchester City while Dan Ashworth is expected to be the new sporting director even if his arrival might be delayed from Newcastle United.

INEOS intends to expand its recruiting by hiring a recruitment head and a technical director. In a shift from previous strategies under Erik ten Hag, they now look forward to broaden their player signings, moving away from primarily centering on Eredivisie players.

Under Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the club emphasizes nurturing young talents, believing in the potential of discovering promising youth players with huge potential over solely relying on signing well established superstars. Additionally, there’s a objective to decrease the overall age of the first team, reflecting a focus on long-term development and growth.

United eyeing young talents

Samuel Iling-Junior, a young and promising talent currently playing for Juventus in Serie A, has caught the eye of Manchester United scouts, who are closely monitoring his progress. As the summer transfer window approaches, there are chances that United may consider signing him to strengthen and add depth to their squad.

The England U21 international scored twice as the Young Lions roared to a 7-0 triumph against Luxembourg on Tuesday despite playing as the left-back.

The former Chelsea academy product’s versatility and temperament that has impressed the Red Devils the most. He mainly plays as a left wing-back for Max Allegri’s side but he can also play as the left winger and in midfield too.

He has made 19 appearances for Juventus this season, with only three coming as a starter, and has managed to bag one goal and two assists.

The 20-year-old’s current Bianconeri contract expires in 2025 which makes Manchester United confident of signing his services in the upcoming summer transfer window. He is valued at £10 million according to Transfermarkt.

Bianconeri are yet to open contract talks with the youngster and multiple Premier League outfits such as Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham and Everton are pursuing for his signature.

Iling-Junior on United’s radar

“Manchester United are keeping tabs on Samuel Iling-Junior”, FootballTransfers understands. We have been told that the Red Devils are keenly tracking the Juventus starlet ahead of a potentially big summer for him.

“Juventus are yet to open talks with the London-born former Chelsea prospect over a new deal, which has English clubs confident of potentially being able to poach him from the Turin giants.”

Manchester United are struggling in the left-back position with Luke Shaw’s injury troubles back with a vengeance while Tyrell Malacia’s injury trouble seem to be never-ending.

Even on the wings, Marcus Rashford has let the team down this season while both Jadon Sancho and Antony could be cashed on. And the London-born star Iling- Junior could provide the answers for both solutions.
