Manchester United holding discussions with Saudi officials for potential signings to support Erik ten Hag.

United are considering utilizing the Saudi market to generate funds for their own transfer targets. Pro League teams in Saudi Arabia have previously attempted to attract star players from European football, and are anticipated to once again pursue big-name players in the upcoming transfer window. Reports suggest that Raphael Varane, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Casemiro are potential targets for moves to the Middle East.

Varane, whose contract with United is expiring in June and is expected to leave on a free transfer, is linked with Al-Ittihad and Al-Nassr. Additionally, Al-Nassr is also monitoring Wan-Bissaka, who has struggled to secure a regular spot in the team, with the possibility of being sold due to his contract expiring in 12 months. Casemiro is another player identified as a target for the Saudi Pro League, as the Real Madrid midfielder has faced challenges with form and fitness.

United’s preparations for potential player departures include the potential exits of Anthony Martial and Jadon Sancho. There is also speculation surrounding Marcus Rashford’s future at the club. The club will face Manchester City in the FA Cup final, but even a potential victory may not deflect the likelihood of changes and player sales.

United’s priority is to return to the top of English and European football, as announced by Ratcliffe.
