Manchester United have had their eyes on Aurelien Tchouameni for some time now. Erik Ten Hag is a big fan of the youngster and wants the player at Old Trafford next season. However, According to reports, Liverpool are ready to hijack the midfielder.
Liverpool have had a history of hijacking players from Manchester United before. United were once interested in Fabinho as former manager Jose Mourinho wanted the defensive midfielder at Old Trafford.
Fabinho had addressed the United rumors some time ago.
“I was never close to signing for Mancheter United, no, I heard things said about it, but the truth is it was never a strong possibility, I won’t deny there were a few conversations about my situation with Monaco, but there was never an official offer from United.
As soon as Liverpool declared their interest in signing me, it was a simple decision to make. A club with Liverpool’s history wants you? Come on, you just pack your bags and go. It will be an honour to wear the famous red shirt.”
Liverpool then went on to swoop in for the Fabinho and signed him under United’s nose. Under Klopp, Fabinho has molded into the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League. United fans haven’t quite recovered from the shock still. As United still require a defensive midfielder, Fabinho would have fit the role and United would have had lesser problems. However, fate is cruel.
Manchester United should go all out
Manchester United should go all out for Tchouameni unless they want to repeat a Fabinho fiasco. A proper defensive midfielder is something United have missed since Ander Herrera left the club back in 2019/20 season. United will be on their guard after hearing the recent reports. If United want to challenge for the Premier League title, they have to become ruthless and offload players and go all out for the players they want.
