Manchester United mulling a last-ditch effort to land Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle

Since Eric Ten Hag’s took over the hot seat at the Manchester United coaching job, the club has now experienced a revolution in terms of players’ mentality and other issues.

These recent changes have diversified the environment around Old Trafford, which are also signs of a positive change in their transfer strategies, and this has shifted their ambition to sign talented players until the deadline.

Why does Manchester United hope to secure Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle?

According to French publication Media Foot, Manchester United is considering a surprise move for Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin before the transfer deadline after the Red Devils earned their first points of the new Premier League season with a 2-1 victory over archrivals Liverpool at home yesterday.

Despite the superb result, United are likely to bolster their attack in the coming days, with Saint-Maximin reportedly on their radar and the Red Devils are said to be impressed with his ‘explosive’ profile and are willing to make a late bid to entice him away from the Magpies.

With his dribbling ability, saint Maximin has been able to take on defenders and create key chances for his teammates at Newcastle.

The Frenchman’s finishing still needs work, and Ten Hag’s hands-on training approach could bring out the best in him if he moves to Old Trafford this summer.

Transfermarkt currently values Allan at £28.8 million, but it may take a significant transfer fee, likely in the region of £60-70 million, to put the Magpies’ resolve to the test.

The big twist is whether Newcastle would sell him at all because the Tyneside club is now owned by a Saudi-led consortium and is financially sound.

Simply put, they are in a position to invest in elite talent, and also, the Frenchman has four more years left on his contract, and the club is not in a rush to offload him.
