Man United have eyes on Southampton’s emerging star midfielder, Romeo Lavia.

Manchester United Football Club are progressing in the right direction under Erik ten Hag. That growth has been obvious.

The Red Devils need to keep moving forward, with the club ready to spend big, whoever the owners are come the summer…

Be it The Glazers, Qatar or Sir Jim Ratcliffe, United simply have to strike while the iron is hot. Money has to be given to the gaffer who is proving his astuteness in the transfer market.

Today, a new name has been thrown into the mix; Romeo Lavia.

It’s the Daily Mail with the claim. They state that United are now ‘keeping tabs’ on the 19-year-old Premier League starlet, who has been impressive for Southampton this term.

United will not have this transfer battle all their own way, with both Chelsea and Arsenal also keen on bringing in the Belgian.

The teenager, signed from City last summer, cost Southampton just under £14m, though City will have a £40m buyback clause which activates next summer. Sadly, our noisy neighbours will get first dibs on Lavia.

There can be no doubt that United are dreaming about signing a big name like Jude Bellingham, though perhaps going for someone younger (and cheaper) makes sense. Casemiro is still here in that defensive-midfield role, so bring in Lavia this summer, let him sit in-behind for a couple of years, before taking up the mantle at a time when Casemiro’s minutes need to start being reduced.

From what I’ve seen of Lavia, he’s certainly been massively impressive. He will only continue to get better and better with regular exposure to Premier League football.
