BREAKING NEWS: reported by Fabrizio Romano, ” hojlund is good but doesn’t have the experience that’s why we have made a decision to bring him in, he has the experience and the potential to lead the attack next season personal terms have been agreed we are hoping to reach a deal with his club”. According to reports Manchester United are back again as personal terms have been agreed with Premier league striker, the player has admitted that he is open to a summer move, and man utd are looking to take this opportunity. Manchester United agrees personal terms with Premier league star.


Manchester United have reignited their interest in signing Brentford striker Ivan Toney, although securing a deal for the England international poses a complex challenge for the Old Trafford club.

Under Erik ten Hag’s management, Manchester United have faced limitations, with only one fit natural center-forward available during the latter part of the season. While Rasmus Hojlund has adapted well to the No.9 role since joining from Atalanta last summer, there remains a palpable need for additional attacking prowess.

Toney has emerged as a potential target for Manchester United following reports of Brentford lowering their asking price for the 28-year-old forward. Previously valued at around £100 million (€115m) in January, Brentford are now reportedly open to accepting less than half of that amount to facilitate a transfer.

However, despite the reduced transfer fee, acquiring Toney is unlikely to come without significant financial implications. His wage demands are reportedly considerable, with The Mirror suggesting that he has set his sights on a weekly salary of £250,000, placing him among Manchester United’s highest earners. Such a salary package, totaling £13 million annually, would surpass that of club captain Bruno Fernandes and could potentially fuel tensions within the club’s hierarchy, particularly amidst reported internal disputes at Old Trafford.

Should key players like Casemiro and Raphael Varane depart Manchester United in the summer, only Marcus Rashford, with earnings of £15.6 million, would command a higher salary. This discrepancy in wages could potentially unsettle the squad and exacerbate existing tensions.

Critics argue that Toney’s recent performances do not justify the hefty financial investment being proposed. Despite a promising start to the season, including four goals in five games following a return from a betting ban, Toney has endured a goal drought spanning over two months. Even being entrusted with the captaincy for three matches by Brentford manager Thomas Frank failed to reignite his form, leading to his omission from the starting lineup in recent fixtures.

Furthermore, Toney’s openness to a potential summer move has fueled speculation about his future. When questioned about his aspirations for the end of the season, he expressed a desire to compete in the Euros and win the tournament, hinting at the possibility of a transfer to a club like Madrid if Brentford were to sell him.

In conclusion, while Manchester United’s interest in Ivan Toney may address their pressing need for attacking reinforcements, the potential financial implications and Toney’s recent form raise valid concerns about the viability of the proposed transfer. Balancing the desire for immediate squad improvement with long-term financial sustainability will be crucial for Manchester United in navigating the complexities of this potential deal.
