Five transfers Man Utd should make to become title contenders including Kane



MANCHESTER UNITED are set to bolster their squad this summer as they eye a Premier League title challenge next season.

Erik ten Hag has enjoyed a relatively successful first 12 months in charge of the Red Devils, ending their six-year wait for a trophy with the Carabao Cup and also returning them to the Champions League.

But they remain well adrift of neighbours Manchester City, finishing the campaign 14 points behind their local rivals.

And it is widely accepted they will need to improve their side if they are to compete with Pep Guardiola’s men.

So who could they poach this summer to close the gap to their counterparts from the blue side of the city?


Here are five names linked with moves to Old Trafford that could help them mount a serious push for the title.

Man Utd’s highest-profile target is Tottenham striker Harry Kane – who is expected to set them back around £100million.

Spurs’ talisman, 29, is preparing to enter the final 12 months of his contract and has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

But the Red Devils face tough competition from Real Madrid who are keen to sign him as their replacement for Karim Benzema.

Napoli centre-back Kim Min-jae, 26, is being heavily linked with a move away from the Serie A champions .

Despite only joining the club in the summer for £15m from Fenerbahce, his £40m release clause becomes active on July 1.

Man Utd are leading the race to sign him and are desperate for a centre-back to replace Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof – both of whom are expected to leave in the coming weeks.

But United are one of FOUR English sides interested in the technically supreme star, with Man City, Liverpool and Newcastle also keeping tabs on him.

If both Maguire and Lindelof are to depart, Ten Hag will want another top quality central defender to back up Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, even if Min-jae also joins.

United have held “positive talks” with Monaco defender Axel Disasi, 25, who can play at centre-half and right-back.

He is expected to leave the Ligue 1 side after they missed out on a place in the Champions League.


David Raya is attracting interest from some Premier League giants
