Man United ‘weighing up’ Ivan Toney move

Man United are looking at potentially moving to sign Brentford striker, Ivan Toney. Though they’ll face competition…

Erik ten Hag’s summer transfer window hasn’t been anything close to what he’d have hoped. So far, only three signings have been made, with a deal for Casemiro also in place.

There are still holes all over this squad. The need for a new striker is there for all to see, particularly if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves.

Manchester United have searched far and wide in an effort to try and fill that void. Apparently, that has led them to Ivan Toney’s door.

The Brentford striker absolutely terrorised the United back line last weekend. Now, Ten Hag seemingly has eyes on the Englishman.

It’s The Mirror with the claim. They state that United are ‘weighing up’ a move to sign the striker who scored 14 Premier League goals last term during an impressive debut season in the top flight. Toney already has two to his name this season.

The Reds would face competition in any move for Toney, with Chelsea and Everton joining in the race to acquire the 26-year-old. As it stands, Brentford are ‘bracing themselves’ for a bid before the transfer window closes.

Toney isn’t a name you’d necessarily expect United to move for. However, the top targets have either already moved to other clubs, or just aren’t interested in moving to United right now.

That’s not to say the Englishman wouldn’t be an upgrade. In fact, I’d sort of like to see this deal happen. Toney’s hold-up play, ability in the air and natural skill when it comes to sticking the ball in the back of the net is there for all to see.

My issue with this transfer comes with the transfer fee. Toney would come with a premium cost due to the fact that Brentford would be selling to a Premier League rival. No fee is mentioned right now, but I’d be surprised if they let him leave for anything less than £40-50m.

Do you think Ivan Toney would be a good signing for Man United? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.

  1. United could include Martial in any deal for Toney. It would bring the cost down and get rid of the lazy player.
