Manchester United wish to signal a striker this summer season as Erik ten Hag will stay in just one striker place within the coming months, however Daniel McDonnell is out of the membership. Irish Independent He says the Crimson Devils have suffered a blow of their pursuit of Ivan Ferguson.
The 18-year-old, who has efficiently risen by the youth ranks to the Brighton & Hove Albion first workforce, plans to commit his future to the Seagulls, so a summer season sale would not appear to be on the playing cards. Brighton have an opportunity to complete within the Europa League this season, so it is easy to see why they need to keep.
United might have a navy improve
Nevertheless, that is dangerous information for United, because the First Division giants will falter in assault when Wout Weghorst’s mortgage deal expires. Anthony Martial is not a nasty attacking possibility, scoring a good seven targets from 12 begins this season, however his long-term future at Previous Trafford is up within the air.
The 27-year-old’s contract expires subsequent yr and his contract will not be renewed as he has been out of motion and his taking part in time has been restricted previously two years. Man United have been linked with Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimhen, so both participant would take Martial’s place.
Ferguson will likely be extra of a draft as he’s solely 18 years outdated, however the Republic of Eire worldwide has nice potential. Since becoming a member of from Bohemians in 2021, Ferguson has scored 18 targets from 39 video games for the Brighton Below-21s and has scored eight targets from 23 first-team appearances.
He is extra more likely to play for Brighton than for United, so it is perhaps finest if he sticks his profession to the Amex for a minimum of one other season. The Crimson Devils are searching for tried and examined strikers to problem them on all fronts in 2023/24, so it’s probably that Ferguson is not going to be an everyday beneath ten Hag.
Nevertheless, the 6ft 2in striker has twice as many league targets (4) as Weghorst (2) this season, so he would enhance United’s squad. Brighton have it restricted till 2026, so they’ll maintain all playing cards in negotiations. And with Ferguson exhibiting no need to depart, the deal seems to be lifeless within the water.
