Three players who could follow Mason Mount to Manchester United this summer

Sports Mole looks at three deals that Manchester United could complete this summer after signing Mason Mount from Chelsea.

Manchester United announced their first signing of the summer transfer window on Wednesday morning, with Mason Mount arriving at Old Trafford from Chelsea in a £55m deal.

The Red Devils are looking to further boost their squad during the current market, though, with the team preparing to return to the Champions League for the 2023-24 campaign.

Head coach Erik ten Hag does not have an unlimited budget this summer due to financial restrictions, and the amount of money available could depend on exits, with a number of players being linked with moves away from the club.

Here, Sports Mole looks at three players who could follow Mount to Old Trafford, with the Red Devils allegedly in discussions over moves for the trio.

David de Gea‘s contract at Man United came to an end on June 30, with Man United now looking to sign a new number one goalkeeper, and Onana continues to be heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that the Red Devils are keen on the former Cameroon international, with a first bid for the stopper allegedly being made.

Man United’s offer for the 27-year-old is believed to be in the region of €45m (£38.5m), but according to Sky Sports News, the Italian team want closer to €60m (£51.4m) for his services.

Onana impressed under Ten Hag at Ajax, while he was in strong form for Inter last term, featuring on 41 occasions, keeping 19 clean sheets in the process.

The stopper is believed to have rejected interest from Saudi Arabia in the hope of securing a move to Old Trafford, and he could potentially become the club’s second signing of the summer window.

Man United have already boosted their midfield ranks with the signing of Mount, but there is a feeling that a second player could arrive in that area of the field, with Fred and Scott McTominay being linked with exits.

Amrabat is widely expected to leave Fiorentina this summer, and the Red Devils appear to have become the favourites for his signature ahead of Barcelona, who were heavily linked with him earlier this year.

Fiorentina chief executive Joe Barone has confirmed that the club are open to offers for the Morocco international, and a recent report claimed that he has already agreed personal terms with Ten Hag’s side.

The 26-year-old was in strong form for his Serie A club during the 2022-23 campaign, featuring on 49 occasions in all competitions, helping them to reach the final of the Coppa Italia and Europa Conference League.

Amrabat showed his class for Morocco at the 2022 World Cup and could be a smart addition for Man United during the summer market at a relatively low cost.

Ten Hag is said to be driving Man United’s interest in Hojlund, with the club’s head coach pushing for the Denmark international to move to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils have allegedly already had a £30m bid turned down by Atalanta BC but are said to be preparing to increase their offer to £40m in the hope of agreeing a deal.

Hojlund appears to have emerged as the club’s leading target in the final third of the field ahead of the likes of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, Napoli’s Victor Osimhen and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani.

The 20-year-old was in strong form for Atalanta last season, scoring 10 goals and registering four assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.

Whether he is ready to lead the line for Man United on a consistent basis remains to be seen, but the forward has already shown huge potential in the early stages of his career.
