Manchester United trio on the market; newest switch talks from Outdated Trafford
The Red Devils are busy in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United sealed two breathtaking transfers out of the summer window. You have more to do in the market as the manager has to perform a balancing act. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a squad with surplus talent and the recruiting cell has been sacking some players to give them minutes of play.
United’s midfield trio, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira are expected to leave the players this summer, according to the sources. However, they struggle to win offers that are convincing for the team.
Spanish attacking midfielder Juan Mata is the strongest presence in the current squad. He has been a key player for the Red Devils since 2014. The 33-year-old signed a one-year contract extension last month, which shows his importance to the team.
However, you can still request offers for the player. If he can win a deal this summer, it would be helpful to the club’s finances to have him free agent next season. Staying at Old Trafford makes no difference to the player. Because the schedule for the next season provides for more talents in the midfield line who will challenge Mata’s game minutes.
Andreas Pereira is at the top level in loan periods. The player developed out of the Manchester United youth system. He had a good show in Serie A with Napoli last season. For them, he played 26 league games, of which he scored one goal and provided two assists.
His contract with the Red Devils expires in the summer of 2023. In the professional team of United in the coming season, however, he has no more hope. A loan deal would serve the purpose for both the player and the club.
Plus, he’ll be able to play without pressure if that happens this summer. Meanwhile, Turkish side Fenerbahce are interested in the player and put up a € 25 million bid for him. (Swell)

The Serbian Nemanja Matic is the definition of a defensive midfielder for Manchester United. He is the benchmark for Old Trafford scouts to find a new midfielder. Matic was a solid presence between defensive and midfield.
Matic’s experience cannot be denied by United and he has been the guardian of midfield for years. The player’s contract expires in 2023 and he can provide the same quality service to midfield for a couple of years if age is not an issue.
The development of Scott McTominay and the new defensive reinforcements in defense will ease the pressure on a midfielder for United next season. However, title ambitions force the team to choose a new defensive midfielder in the summer window.
Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez is a nomination for the position of Nemanja Matic. The Spaniard will be an upgrade for the Serbian and can guard the midfield with more creativity. But the long-term contract with that The league Champions is a problem for United.
The Wolves option Ruben Neves is another major contender for the place as discussions progress in England. Anyway, the summer market has been positive for the Red Devils and they expect more good news out the window.
