According to a recent report, Man United have asked about the availability of Villareal winger, Arnaut Danjuma.

You name any position on the field and there’s a good chance that Manchester United need reinforcements in it. That’s just how bad we’ve become, slowly but surely, over the last few seasons.

Erik ten Hag has a massive job on his hands. There’s no doubt he likely underestimated just how big this task is.

Well, the Dutch manager has to start somewhere, right? Several names have been linked with United switches already. Today, a familiar name has been thrown into the mix yet again; Arnaut Danjuma.

The story comes from, though the article is largely based on a potential move for Pau Torres. We’ve already covered that story pretty heavily, but we found the snippet of information about Danjuma the most interesting.

Apparently, United ‘have spoken’ to Villareal about a potential move for the 25-year-old winger this summer.

It’s stressed that as things stand, United haven’t taken their interest further than this initial enquiry.

Danjuma enjoyed a brilliant 2021/22 season from the wing. He scored sixteen goals in 34 appearances across all competitions for the La Liga club.

The attacker also has experience in English football, playing a couple of seasons for AFC Bournemouth. One in the Premier League and another in the Championship.

This feels like Ten Hag moving for Dutch players with whom he’s familiar with – and that undoubtedly makes sense at this moment in time. United’s new boss wants players who he can slot into the side from day one and put complete trust in.

Danjuma would be somewhat of a gamble, but there’s a glaring need for some extra quality in the final third of the field for United. Outside of Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes, I don’t feel there are any forwards that Ten Hag can place 100% trust in.

Would a Man United move for Arnaut Danjuma make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
