The Red Devils did a lot of shopping during the recently concluded transfer window, bringing in a host of new talents.
Yet, despite the flurry of activity at Old Trafford, recent results on the pitch suggest that Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, is yet to secure his preferred targets.
Italian midfielder Nicolo Barella was a top target for Manchester United this summer, as reported by Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb. The Red Devils were eager to reinforce their midfield, with manager Erik ten Hag’s side showing strong interest in acquiring Barella’s services.
Despite their enthusiasm, Inter Milan was unwilling to part ways with the talented midfielder, and United had to turn to alternative options. In the end, they secured deals for Mason Mount from Chelsea and Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina.
Mason Mount, the England international signed from Premier League rivals Chelsea, faced a challenging start to his Manchester United journey. On the other hand, Sofyan Amrabat, acquired on deadline day from Fiorentina, has been sidelined as he works towards full fitness.
Nicolo Barella joined Inter Milan from Cagliari in 2019. He continues to be a crucial figure in Simone Inzaghi’s squad, consistently featuring in the starting lineup this season.
Reports have emerged, via Liverpool Echo citing CaughtOffside, that Inter Milan might be open to selling Barella for a fee of £77 million to alleviate their financial concerns. This development could reignite Manchester United’s interest in the player
