Manchester United’s coach Erik Ten Hag would be totally desperate to sign a top £51 million Premier League star for the summer transfer market window, and he would have already urged the club to make the necessary movements to grant the player’s arrival ahead of the next season.

The problem for the Dutchman, although, would be the presence of a top European giant in the race to sign the player, with the Manchester United rival having already started a special plan to convince the player and his owning club, which could prefer letting the player go to a foreign club better than send him to United.

The player in question would be the 22-year-old Belgian midfielder Amadou Onana from Everton, who has been set as a top priority target by Ten Hag in order to replace Carlos Henrique Casemiro in Manchester United’s midfield.

The asking price for the player would have been set at £40 million by Everton, and despite it wouldn’t be a problem for Ratcliffe in case of raising enough money from the sales of Antony dos Santos, Casemiro or Jadon Sancho, the British billionaire and his INEOS’ team could find unexpected inconveniences.

In case Manchester United didn’t qualify for the next Champions League edition, the Mancunian club’s negotiations for Amadou Onana could be seriously affected, since the player is also targeted by FC Barcelona, which surely will play in European competitions next season, as the Red Devils will try to convince the player to seal a quick agreement before the summer transfer market window arrives.
