Ugarte Uruguay

Man Utd are serious about signing Manuel Ugarte and the latest reports from Spain indicate they are favorites to lure him.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), Atletico are very interested in securing the Uruguayan international, but they have refuted claims from ESPN that Simeone has contacted him.

The Madrid based news source have mentioned that there is ‘no evidence’ the Rojiblancos manager has called the South American midfielder.

It is reported that Man Utd have the advantage due to their ‘economic capacity’ to secure big signings and Ugarte is valued at around £38million (45 million euros).

AS claim Atletico do not give up but cannot compete against the financial muscle of the Premier League and would only offer a loan deal.

Therefore, Man Utd is the ‘most likely’ destination for Ugarte, who is heavily linked with a move away from Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain.

The 23-year-old midfielder was in and out of the starting XI under the management of Luis Enrique last term, and would like to start regularly.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag needs a solid play breaker to partner Kobbie Mainoo in the center of the park.

The best days of Brazilian defensive midfielder, Casemiro, are long gone and he should be sold. On the other hand, Amrabat would likely return to Fiorentina.

Ugarte is currently performing brilliantly at the Copa America and would be a quality signing for Ten Hag.

In your view, should Man Utd offer £38million to sign Manuel Ugarte?
