Manchester United’s pre-season is underway as Erik ten Hag gears up for the new Premier League season. This summer’s transfer market has been quieter compared to last year, but significant developments are unfolding.

Leny Yoro’s Transfer Speculations

Leny Yoro, the Lille center-back, recently addressed rumors stemming from a fake social media account claiming he didn’t want to join Manchester United. The 17-year-old has been a hot topic, with both United and Real Madrid showing interest. Despite no final decision on his future, Lille’s president, Olivier Letang, suggested Yoro might leave this summer. Yoro, a key player for Lille last season, helped the team secure a spot in the Champions League qualifiers. With just a year left on his contract, he is expected to move for a substantial fee.

Manchester United’s Transfer Targets

Manchester United are exploring options to bolster their attack. According to The Athletic, the club has discussed potential moves for Ivan Toney of Brentford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin of Everton. Toney is currently representing England at Euro 2024, while Calvert-Lewin remains with Everton after Newcastle United pulled out of a deal. Additionally, Joshua Zirkzee from Bologna is on United’s radar. The need for attacking depth has become more pressing with Anthony Martial’s departure, leaving Rasmus Hojlund as the main striker.
