Erik ten Hag wants two strikers signed this summer for Manchester United.



Having made his position clear on Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester City are chasing a Barcelona star, while Saturday’s transfer gossip claims West Ham are chasing a Chelsea striker.

TEN HAG WANTS RONALDO TO STAY AND DUO TO JOIN HIM

Erik ten Hag has reportedly decided that he wants Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United next season.

The Portuguese star has found himself the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks. Indeed, despite scoring 24 goals in 37 appearances this season, there are some who argue his style and performances have held United back.

Furthermore, there are doubts he would be willing to stay around if United, as expected, failed to secure Champions League football next season.

That follows claims that Ronaldo will accept whatever decision Ten Hag makes about his future 100 per cent.

However, the Daily Telegraph claims Ten Hag is desperate to retain the services of the 37-year-old and plans to build his side around him.

That said, there will be attacking reinforcements brought in, and Ten Hag is reportedly looking at two other additions this summer.

Firstly, the Daily Express claims United are exploring the possibility of a deal for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez.

The Argentine has struck 23 times this season and is on a contract through 2026.

However, Inter may be forced to wheel and deal this summer and the paper claims a swap deal with Anthony Martial could be struck.

With Inter valuing Martinez at around the £70m mark, United would need to send Inter around £35m in addition to Martial.

United are also stepping up interest in Hugo Ekitike.

United are also reportedly stepping up their pursuit of Hugo Ekitike.

The France Under-20 striker came close to joining Newcastle in a £25m deal in January.

However, Reims accepts he is likely to leave this summer.

Reports on Friday mentioned United making a move for the Reims star this summer.

Now, the Daily Mail claims Ten Hag has ordered United to ramp up their pursuit of the 19-year-old.

The Dutchman is seemingly a massive fan of the teenager and reckons he is destined for a big future.

Widespread reports claim Ten Hag wants two new strikers this season – and to operate with a three-man attack next season.

And if the reports are accurate, Manchester United could line up with Ekitike, Martinez, and Ronaldo next season.

MAN CITY TO SWAP BERNARDO SILVA FOR FRENKIE DE JONG

According to a report, Manchester City are warming to the idea of swapping Bernardo Silva for Frenkie de Jong this summer.

The Blues are still reeling from seeing their place in the Champions League final slip from their grasp. Wednesday’s dramatic late collapse against Real Madrid means it is the Spaniards who face Liverpool in the final.

For City, planning for next season is already underway, with Pep Guardiola keen to strengthen his ranks.

And finding a replacement for Fernandinho in midfield will be one of his top priorities.

Now Mundo Deportivo claims a swap deal for De Jong and Silva could come around.

The Dutch midfielder is a big part of Barcelona’s plans, but has struggled for his best form at times this season. And while he settled under new boss Xavi, he could be sacrificed in return for Silva.

The Portuguese attacking midfielder has played his way back into Guardiola’s plans this season off the back of a great season.

However, with Barca open to a swap, he too could be sacrificed in exchange for De Jong.

The story is backed up by The Sun, who claims Manchester City will make De Jong, Erling Haaland, and Julian Alvarez their three signings this summer.

City are also being linked with a free-transfer move for Paul Pogba.

West Ham is ready to break the bank for Broja.

Chelsea loanees Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja

According to a report, West Ham are looking to spend big money to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea this summer.

The powerful striker has caught the eye during a season’s loan with Southampton.

However, his future remains very much up for debate, with a place in the Chelsea attack seemingly unlikely.

And with the Saints unlikely to convince the Albanian to make the move permanent, a move to West Ham looks to be on the cards.

Moyes has fashioned an exciting side at the London Stadium. Their run to the Europa League semi-finals emphasises this.

But the one area where they fall short is in attack, with only Michail Antonio as an option.

Now The Sun claims a move for Broja is on the cards.

Moyes is seemingly a big fan and is ready to spend big to land the 20-year-old.

Broja has nine goals in 36 appearances for the Saints this season.

Napoli are also considering a move for Broja as a replacement for the in-demand Victor Osimhen.
