Federico Chiesa target as Erik ten Hag exits

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is still believed to be in the market for new signings ahead of next week’s transfer deadline, with another forward on the agenda.

Manchester United have been cautious in the January transfer window after spending more than £200m last summer, but Erik ten Hag could still add to his squad before next week’s deadline.

United have taken Jack Butland and Wout Weghorst on loan for the remainder of the season. However, it is believed that Ten Hag wished to add other attack options to his squad if the opportunity presented itself.

A number of names have been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks but with United unlikely to shell out the big bucks there are limited options. Here, Mirror Football collects all the latest transfer news involving United…

Manchester United are one of the Juventus forwards who are ‘shadowing’ Federico Chiesa, according to a new report from Italian outlet Calciomercatoweb.

As a result, Juve are reportedly willing to cash in on some of their prized assets – and Chiesa, who starred for Italy in their Euro 2020 win, will attract plenty of suitors.
