Man Utd dream deadline day could involve three signings and Harry Maguire sale

Man Utd dream deadline day could involve three signings and Harry Maguire sale

Here is how it could go down.

Transfer deadline day is upon us at last, with clubs across the country trying to get their last pieces of business over the line.

And Manchester United are no different, with Erik ten Hag scouring the transfer market for last minute additions to help bolster his squad.

The Red Devils have already signed Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojland, but Ten Hag isn't finished there and is keen to sign a new left-back following an injury to Luke Shaw. While he is also eager to add another midfielder to his ranks.

It's impossible to predict exactly where United will be in 24 hours time, but let's take a look at the perfect scenario.

Ten Hag is eager to get a number of players off the club's books to help free up his summer transfer budget and make space for new signings amid concerns around financial fair play.

One of the names rumoured with an Old Trafford exit is former captain Harry Maguire, who continues to be linked with a move to West Ham.

In the perfect world, United could sell the England international for a decent fee and have time to sign a replacement such as Jean-Claire Todibo - who has been rumoured with a move to The Theatre of Dreams.

Meanwhile, United would sign Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat on a permanent deal, who has been consistently rumoured with a move to Old Trafford all summer.

To complete United's 'dream' deadline day, Ten Hag would land a proven left-back to help cover for Shaw, with former Tottenham full-back Sergio Reguilon currently linked with United.

On the other hand, here's how United's deadline day could look if things do not pan out as anticipated.

In a nightmare scenario, Maguire would leave without the club signing a replacement, leaving United stretched in defence.

Premier League rivals Liverpool could also poach Amrabat should they miss out on signing Bayern Munich's Ryan Gravenberch. Jurgen Klopp's side have also been linked to Amrabat this summer and are eager to add another midfielder to their ranks.

Finally, Donny van de Beek's prospective £35 million move to Ligue 1 side Lorient could collapse, leaving Ten Hag searching for funds.
