Manchester United handed a transfer boost as players leave this summer

It appears that Manchester United has received a substantial transfer boost before chasing fresh acquisitions

(Football news) Erik ten Hag will continue to serve as United’s head coach, as was confirmed earlier this week. With that in place, Manchester United can now concentrate on trying to acquire new players before 2024–25.

With Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial leaving on free transfers, a number of positions are being targeted, including attack and center defender.

A lot could depend on how the Red Devils handle additional departures to strengthen their stance in relation to the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability rules. A wide range of names have been connected to both posts.

However, with regards to two players who they have been heavily linked with in the past, the door has been left ajar for a proposal to be put forward.

Lille president gives green light to Yoro, David exits

Young defender Leny Yoro and forward Jonathan David have allegedly been on United’s radar for some time, particularly the latter who has long been linked with a move to a bigger club.

Lille president Olivier Letang was present at a press conference on Thursday to confirm that Bruno Genesio had been appointed as their new head coach.

Nevertheless, while addressing the media, the subject of player departures came up, and Letang made it known that two of the club’s key players could move elsewhere.

Letang said: “Leny Yoro and Jonathan David can leave the club this summer. Both have the ‘exit voucher’ due to their contract situation.”

The term ‘exit voucher’ can be perceived to be related to each player having just 12 months remaining on their existing deals.

Could Yoro, David move to Old Trafford?

While Lille will not be prepared to allow Yoro or David leave on the cheap, they cannot expect to receive the asking prices that would have been in place had they had more time left on their respective contracts.

Even having only turned 18 years of age in November, Yoro is destined to sign for a big club with Real Madrid another of his known suitors.

Already a France Under-21 international, the teenager made 30 starts and two substitute outings in Ligue 1 during 2023-24 as Lille finished in fourth position.

At the other end of the pitch, David contributed 19 goals and four assists, further enhancing the reputation of the Canada international who will have numerous clubs attempting to sign him over the coming months.

United could face competition from AC Milan, who have just announced that Paulo Fonseca – David’s former coach at Lille – has been appointed as their new boss.
