Fabrizio Romano lists nine players who were offered to Manchester United in August

United have been linked with a surprising number of players this summer as Eric Ten Haag attempts to revitalize a lackluster squad.

United have agreed to move closer to other goals after the Frenkie de Jong saga came to an end. The most affected midfielder is Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot.

Many were surprised by the prosecution due to the inconsistent and questionable attitude of the French. Juventus sold him earlier in the window, but no other suitors emerged until Manchester United’s £15million offer was accepted.

After the deal fell through as personal terms could not be agreed, United received several midfielders to make up for their failed mission.

Likewise, after stepping down almost immediately after talks with Bologna over controversial veteran striker Marko Arnautovic, Ten Haag continued to seek frontline reinforcements.

Fabrizio Romano has compiled a list of players offered to Manchester United in the final weeks of the transfer window. Revealed via his Youtube channel:

• Leandro Paredes, ex-Paris Saint-Germain (now Juventus)
• Weston McKennie, Juventus
• Memphis Depay, Barcelona
• Yannick Carrasco, Atlético de Madrid
• Christian Pulisic, Chelsea
• Sergiño Dest, ex-Barcelona (now AC Milan)
• Thomas Meunier, Borussia Dortmund
• Moises Caicedo, Brighton and Hove Albion
• Hirving Lozano, PSV Eindhoven

These players, along with six others, were of course offered to Manchester United ahead of the £60m and £85m purchases of Casemiro and Anthony, respectively, according to transfer experts.

Romano suggested United chose not to bite, but to keep their cool as they chased the goals they wanted from Real Madrid and Ajax.

It should be noted, however, that these players were offered to United by their clubs or agents following uncertainty over Old Trafford’s current transfer strategy and history of shotgun acquisitions.

United remain tight on their shortlist, dropping offers for ten first-choice players from Hague and John Mertoff, Casemiro and Anthony.
