Manchester United Ready To Move For Calvert-Lewin As Ten Hag Gets To Work In Transfer Market

Manchester United are ready to move for Dominic Calvert-Lewin this summer as they look to take advantage of Everton’s financial issues.

New United boss Erik Ten Hag is said to be keen on adding a striker to his squad this summer amidst uncertainty surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future and with Edinson Cavani’s contract expiring.

It’s understood that the Dutch manager has identified Calvert-Lewin as a potential target, and that United believe they have a strong chance of landing the 25-year-old.

Despite the Merseyside club remaining insistent that ‘they are not sellers’, the reality is that they have suffered huge losses throughout the pandemic, have just endured a poor season which saw them on the brink of relegation and have made a number of reckless economic decisions in recent years.

They may look to cash in on one of their assets this summer to ease this burden, and a deal in the region of £40 million could be enough to prize Calvert-Lewin away from Goddison.

United will face fierce competition from both Newcastle and Arsenal for the forward’s signature, both of whom are also in the market for a striker this summer. 

While Eddie Howe is looking to add a mobile target man who can score goals, Mikel Arteta is searching for numbers in this area, with senior number 9’s Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both departing in the space of six months. 

Calvert-Lewin, who has been capped 11 times by England, is likely to be the subject of a bidding war this summer and will be desperate to recapture the form that earned him a place in the Euro 2021 squad.

The former Sheffield United man scored 21 goals in the 2020/21 season, but followed that up with just 5 goals in 18 appearances last campaign as he struggled with injuries and to find form.
