Ivan Toney England

Manchester United must reinforce the quality and depth of their striking department after the departure of Anthony Martial.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man Utd are willing to strike a discounted agreement to sign Ivan Toney from Brentford.

News – ‘Active’ – Man Utd’s £33.8m plus £12.7m deal will be accepted with star ‘destined’ to move

According to GMS, the Red Devils and Tottenham Hotspur are eager to hire the services of the Premier League center forward.

However, both the Europa League clubs are looking for the Bees to lower their high asking price to get the deal over the line.

It is reported that Man Utd would be willing to ‘strike’ a deal to sign Toney for a fee of around £40million.

However, Thomas Frank’s side are demanding an amount worth £60million to sell the team captain this summer and are not prepared to offer any sort of a discount.

Over the years, United have paid over the adds to lure targets but the situation is different this time around under INEOS.

Due to profitability concerns, the Old Trafford outfit are trying to secure cheap deals and are even trying to lower the fee for Branthwaite.

Last season, Rasmus Hojlund was United’s top scorer, but he only netted 10 goals in 30 Premier League appearances.

The Danish star needs more time to settle and in the current squad, Ten Hag does not have any out and out forward to cover for the main man.

In such a situation, should Man Utd move in to sign Ivan Toney? The England international netted 4 goals in 16 PL starts last term and is currently at the European Championships.
