The latest Manchester United trade involves a Serie A player who is being considered as a Harry Kane replacement and a defender for the Red Devils who wants to see Ronaldo again.
Manchester United is reportedly considering a move for the former Chelsea star and reportedly sent representatives to see Roma striker Tammy Abraham in action.
The 25-year-old frontman is reportedly attracting interest from both United and Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Italian publication Gazetta, which also claims United scouts “have been spotted several times in the Monte Mario Stand” in recent weeks.
Intriguingly, a £70 million buy-back clause that Chelsea inserted into the agreement that sent Abraham to Roma in August 2021 has added another layer of complexity.
Since leaving Stamford Bridge permanently, the former Aston Villa and Swansea City loan player has thrived, helping Jose Mourinho’s team win the inaugural Europa Conference League and advance to the last four of the Europa League this season.
With eight goals and four assists in 32 appearances during the current campaign, Abraham has also aided Roma in their quest to return to the Champions League, and they enter the final six games of the season as one of six clubs with a realistic chance of joining champion-elect Napoli in the competition.
If they are unable to convince Tottenham Hotspur to part ways with the England captain, United are said to view Abraham as a viable Harry Kane replacement and have decided to let Wout Weghorst return to Burnley at the end of the current campaign.
Red Devils defender planning reunion with Ronaldo.
Alex Telles, a fullback for the United team, and Cristiano Ronaldo, a former teammate at Old Trafford, are reportedly close to reuniting.
Although the 30-year-old is currently on loan at La Liga team Sevilla, it is unlikely that he will make the switch permanently at the end of the current campaign. The Saudi Arabian club’s Ronaldo is reportedly trying to convince Telles to join Al Nassr, according to Spanish outlet AS, which also claims Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray is interested in the Brazilian international.
Prices for the friendly match between Manchester United and Arsenal on their US tour are now known as pre-sale begins.
During the Reds’ preseason tour of the US, Manchester United will play Arsenal at New York City’s MetLife Stadium.
When Arsenal and Manchester United face off at the Emirates, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Antony fight for the ball.
After the pre-sale began on Tuesday, supporters of Manchester United can now buy tickets for the friendly match against Arsenal.
The Reds revealed last week that the Gunners would be their third opponent on their summer tour.
Borussia Dortmund, a Bundesliga powerhouse, and Wrexham, a National League team, are also scheduled, though Erik ten Hag is anticipated to field a young team for the latter match. For their trip to the United States, United still needs to confirm one more match.
On July 22, at 5 p.m. local time, 10 p.m. in the UK, United plays Arsenal at New York’s MetLife Stadium, which holds 82,500 people. On Tuesday morning, Ticketmaster website access codes were sent to fans who registered for the pre-sale. Once there, United fans learned that the cheapest seats cost $131 or £104.97 each.
The majority of tickets cost $256 (£205.02). There is still a small number of seats available for a staggering $1,506 (£1206.07) in the “on-field” seating area if you want to be as close to the action as you can get. General sales of tickets begin on Thursday. Fans criticized United earlier this year for the price of friendly tickets, and there was a backlash when similar prices for the Wrexham match were revealed.
“Manchester United versus Arsenal is one of the most famous and anticipated fixtures in the English football calendar, and supporters from both clubs understand how big the rivalry between the two sides,” football director John Murtough said after announcing the friendly matchup against their Premier League rivals. Being able to play in front of a sold-out crowd in New York for this match is fantastic.
“I am aware that Erik and the team are eager to begin preseason training in New York and make use of the fantastic sporting facilities the city has to offer. United last played in New York in 2011, so we are thrilled to be going back after such a long absence. There isn’t a better place to begin the Club’s 23rd Tour. “.
