The latest Manchester United transfer news comes from the French media, who have recently reported that the Red Devils are interested in Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin.
That’s according to a recent report from Media Foot, who claim the explosive Frenchman has emerged as a potential target for Erik ten Hag.
Saint-Maximin, 25, has been with the Toon since his move from Ligue 1 side Nice back in 2019.
Despite being tipped to transform the Geordies’ attack, the 25-year-old struggled to impress in his opening two seasons, however, recent weeks have seen the French attacker begin to live up to the hype.
In action against champions Manchester City last weekend, Saint-Maximin was one of the game’s best players. Causing Kyle Walker no end of problems all afternoon, the explosive wide-man showed glimpses of the potential he has been expected to fulfil.
Although not yet the finished article, there is no denying that the 25-year-old is on course to have a great season, but following these reports, fans will be wondering if he could find himself at a new club before the transfer window closes in a week’s time.
Manchester United transfer news: Allan Saint-Maximin to leave St James’ Park?
It is no secret – United need extra support on both flanks.
Following the indefinite suspension of Mason Greenwood, as well as the inexperience of the likes of Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo, ten Hag could do with more wide options.
However, seemingly prioritising the signing of Ajax’s Antony, the Red Devils’ pursuit of Saint-Maximin will likely depend on Ajax’s decision to sell their number 22 or not.
Nevertheless, while we don’t believe Saint-Maximin will move to Old Trafford, at least not this window anyway, he certainly could be one to watch in future windows.
