Ratcliffe Targets ‘Casemiro Replacement’ as Milan star Midfielder Top of Shopping List.

According to Footballwave, head coach Erik ten Hag has made AC Milan midfielder Tijjani Reijnders a major target for Manchester United during the forthcoming transfer season.


Milan secured the services of the versatile midfielder from Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar last summer for a fee of €19 million. Despite his brief tenure in Italy, reports indicate that Manchester United remains undeterred and is prepared to present an enticing offer for the player.

At 25 years old, the midfielder boasts adaptability across multiple positions, including defensive midfield, central midfield, and attacking midfield. Manchester United is attracted not only to his versatility but also to his potential to rejuvenate the squad, particularly in midfield. With seasoned players like Casemiro, Sofyan Amrabat, and Christian Eriksen approaching the twilight of their careers or facing uncertain futures, coupled with the need for careful integration of promising talent such as Kobbie Mainoo, aged just 18, Reijnders is seen as a valuable asset for United’s future plans, as indicated by sources close to the club.

However, reports suggest that AC Milan’s leadership is firm on their stance, demanding no less than €60 million for Reijnders. This valuation is attributed to his outstanding performances during his time at Milan this season and the security of his contract, which extends until 2028.

In addition to Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly also eyeing Reijnders as they seek to reinforce their midfield during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Ligue 1 champions are gearing up for a squad overhaul, with the imminent departure of Kylian Mbappe expected to provide financial flexibility for incoming transfers.

Reijnders’ football journey began in his hometown at WVF Zwolle before he joined PEC Zwolle in 2007. Following a fruitful four-year spell with FC Twente, he returned to PEC Zwolle in 2011. His standout performances caught the attention of AZ Alkmaar before he made the move to Milan in July, showcasing his progression through the ranks of Dutch football to a prominent European club.
