Man Utd could spend ‘£150m’ on three players at Old Trafford


Manchester United could spend £150m on three more players before the transfer window closes, believes journalist Dean Jones.

The Red Devils recently completed the signing of Casemiro from Real Madrid in a £70m deal, but Jones does not see them stopping there.

What is the latest transfer news involving United?

United are targeting a host of new players right now. According to Sky Sports, the Manchester club are likely to make an improved offer for Ajax winger Antony following a £67.9m bid for the player.

The same outlet has stated that they are also interested in PSV Eindhoven’s Cody Gakpo and Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic as Erik ten Hag desperately tries to improve his attack.

The Dutchman has managed to bolster his defence by bringing in Antony’s former Ajax team-mate Lisandro Martinez and ex-Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia.

However, it is clear that United need to do more after those surprise defeats to Brighton at home and Brentford away.

What has Jones said about United?

Jones has told GIVEMESPORT that he can see United forking out £150m on a few more signings before the window closes in September.

Speaking to GMS, the transfer insider said: “I wouldn’t be surprised if they spend £150m on three players before deadline – after all they would be looking as high as £200m if it ended up being Gakpo, [Frenkie] De Jong and Antony that all sign and a right-back too… but that is unlikely.”

Who else could United sign?

United made De Jong their priority this window, so he is someone the Old Trafford outfit could possibly still sign amid Barcelona’s financial difficulties.

However, with Casemiro joining United and De Jong not wanting to leave the Spotify Camp Nou, you suspect that the Red Devils’ interest in the Dutchman could cool, if it has not already.

Further forward, there has been some talk about the English club weighing up a move for Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

According to the Daily Mirror, United, Chelsea and Everton are all considering going after the 26-year-old.

Toney has started this season well, scoring two goals in his first three league games for the Bees. He also played an instrumental role in his side’s dismantling of United, setting up team-mates Ben Mee and Bryan Mbeumo in that incredible 4-0 win at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Ultimately, when you look at the players Ten Hag is reportedly targeting, you can easily see United spending £150m before September’s deadline.
