Manchester United is said to have confidence and momentum following their victory against West Ham in the Premier League. However, Erik ten Hag may have to accept a reduced say in the club’s recruitment as the new sporting structure takes the lead at Old Trafford.
Casemiro is expected to leave United in the summer amid interest from Saudi Arabia, with Benfica midfielder Joao Neves being considered as an exciting addition to the midfield. United’s need for a holding midfielder has been alleviated by the emergence of 18-year-old Kobbie Mainoo, while the future of player Antony at Old Trafford seems uncertain.
Reportedly, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS are prepared to make significant moves in their first summer transfer window in control of the club’s football operations. They are said to be eyeing Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise as one of their first targets, facing competition from Manchester City.
The potential arrival of Olise could further impact the future of Antony at the club, who faces the challenge of reviving his career at Old Trafford.
