Transfer Battle Ignites: Manchester United Sets Sights on Exciting Forward, Threatens Newcastle United’s Plans!

According to Florian Plettenberg of the Newcastle Chronicle, Manchester United may compete with the Magpies for the services of Moussa Diaby. If Premier League clubs are willing to meet Bayer Leverkusen’s asking price of €70-80 million, the Bundesliga club may entertain proposals for the attacker.

Manchester United is making the necessary preparations to add vital players to its roster. They still have a shot at the FA Cup and the Champions League thanks to Erik ten Hag’s investigation of the season’s failures.

Since they just need one point from their final two games, they are now the favourites to finish above Liverpool. In addition, Ten Hag will carefully consider the club’s ambitions and recruit important players to fill in the holes in a few crucial spots.

Ten Hag may add a new winger to strengthen the assault from outside the box. Recently, Neymar was suggested as a possible target, but such high expectations may be too costly to be feasible. Ten Hag has a history of recruiting and developing young offensive talent, and he continues to do so.

For instance, in addition to Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, the likes of Alejandro Garnacho and Antony are regarded as vital components of the offensive formation. However, Ten Hag may try to add another wide attacker, with Manchester United’s Moussa Diaby a possible target.

Xabi Alonso, manager of Bayer Leverkusen, sees the €70-80 million-valued attacker as crucial to the club’s future. The German club could let the winger go if a bid from the Premier League matches their estimations, however. Diaby currently has a few notable admirers in England.

According to reports, Manchester United is holding off on spending big money on players until they know more about their current predicament. The Leverkusen attacker valued between €70 and €80 million fits that description. However, the Red Devils need to make a decision quickly before their competitors pounce.


Diaby is a player of interest for Arsenal, although Newcastle United is keeping a close eye on him. The Magpies have the financial clout to make blockbuster acquisitions, and they may use it to their advantage by acquiring the €70-80 million-rated attacker.

Diaby will weigh his options carefully, taking into account both of these clubs and Arsenal’s participation in the Champions League. To help out in the final third, Eddie Howe wants to add a wide attacker to the team.

It’s possible that Manchester United, Newcastle United, and even Arsenal may clash. The clubs may feel that the current pricing table is too steep and try to bargain with Leverkusen in order to lower it.
