The summer is anticipated to be busy for INEOS as they take over football operations at Old Trafford. United may offer some players as part of a deal to reduce Brentford’s asking price. Negotiations for a new contract for a player have stalled, increasing the likelihood of a summer departure and potential return to London. Despite a surprise upturn in form, it is still expected that Ten Hag will look to strengthen the center-back position later in the year.
There are considerations about a possible exit for a player, given his current position in the pecking order and the emergence of a young talent. The club may seek a transfer fee for another player, considering his status as an academy product, but Brentford might be interested in a swap deal. Additionally, a 31-year-old player may be interested in returning to his former club as he appears to be past his prime this season. It is suggested that the inclusion of a particular player in a deal may not significantly reduce Brentford’s valuation of another player, but his potential could be valuable with regular playing time.
There are also reports of a 21-year-old winger potentially being offered to Brentford on loan, alongside a permanent player, as part of the negotiations.
