Marco Verrati has been on the radar of Manchester United for quite a long time particularly because he is so dominant in the midfield. His ability to carry the ball forward and instigate attacks makes him a unique defensive midfielder in more ways than one. He plays a key role at PSG since he is one of the most influential players at the club and consequently a guaranteed player in the starting eleven. However, things are about to take an awkward turn in the summer since the club’s board is delaying extending his contract and that means that he could be a free agent in the summer.
With Paul Pogba set to leave in the summer for Manchester United, Marco Verrati could be the best replacement. Verrati has nonetheless said that he is confident that his contract will be extended and he hopes that the decision is made as soon as possible so that he can focus more intently on how he can help the club next season.
Another player Manchester United are keen on in the summer is Ajax winger Antony who has had a splendid season this year. The Brazilian has been involved in 39 goals this season, scoring 23 times and assisting 16 other goals in the process. Erik Ten Hag has been very proud of the Brazilian’s contribution to Ajax’s recent success and as a result, is a key target in the summer for Ten Hag once he joins Manchester United officially in the next few days. Antony’s teammate Daley Blind however has warmed Manchester United and Liverpool that Ajax will not accept any deal for the Brazilian in the summer.
“Antony is a key player for us and I doubt that the club will release him in the summer. It is going to be impossible to drag this player out of the club. Antony too shares the same feeling. He wants to stay and win more trophies. That is the ultimate goal for him next season.”
No offers yet have been reported for Eric Bailly in the summer but there is still hope for him of getting a new club. Real Sociedad are still sleeping on the idea of re-signing their former player whereas other clubs such as RCD Espanyol are still monitoring his contractual situation. Ten Hag will not consider him in his plans for next season, the same ways Ragnick has ignored him throughout this season.
