Manchester United Could Cash In On Amazing Loan Situations
Manchester United have not over indulged in the transfer market lately, they have signed some players, but not to the extent as other teams like Chelsea or Manchester City. Selling some loan players could help finance transfers this summer.
Jesse Lingard is the obvious name that comes to mind and could grab a decent transfer fee, especially if West Ham were to qualify for the Champions League. Diogo Dalot could also be bought after impressing at AC Milan and James Garner is tearing it up at Nottingham Forest.
Jesse Lingard has been nothing but sensational since leaving Manchester United on loan for West Ham, even earning up a call up to a loaded England side. In eight league matches for West Ham, Lingard has six goals and three assists.
Jesse Lingard tore up a Wolves defense yesterday, an amazing solo goal, a skill that was reminiscent of Berbatov and some good passes that lead to goals helped West Ham move up to fourth in the table.
Every goal created by Lingard will have Manchester United salivating about his market value in a position that is already loaded at Old Trafford. Even with Lingard’s current form, there is no guarantee that Manchester United will retain the playmaker.
If Manchester United could get around €25 million for Lingard which might not be that much of a stretch if West Ham qualify for Champions League, they could turn that around an invest in a highly rated player.
Nothing much is going on with Diogo Dalot since Manchester United faced AC Milan, where Dalot is currently on loan, barring a bad end of the season for the Portuguese, he has played well and could have suitors when the season ends.
The versatile fullback can operate on both sides of the field and has played both fullback positions for AC Milan this season.
Diogo Dalot started all three games for the Portuguese U-21 team at left-back during the group stages of the U-21 Euros. Portugal won every game, not conceding a goal, including beating England 2-0.
Manchester United might be able to get back the €20 million they paid for Dalot, but they also could hang on to the young talent. If the Red Devils need to push a transfer over the line, Dalot could sweeten the deal.
Teams have learned how James Garner should be positioned in the midfield after his loan with Watford, so there is not much mystery surrounding the capabilities of Garner, teams would know how not to use him and how to use him especially with his current success at Forest.
According to transfermarkt.us, the young midfielders is valued at around €4 million, not bad, but could rise. Forest is a somewhat ambitious club in the Championship and other ambitious Championship clubs looking to get promoted could swarm for the youngster.
Manchester United probably would not sell Garner unless it was something they could not turn down, another loan deal is possible.
OTHER PLAYERS THAT COULD GO
Manchester United have loaned out youngster Connor Stanley to Major League Soccer (MLS) side Atlanta United and is set to represent the second team for Atlanta in the United Soccer League (USL).
Stanley’s contract runs out this summer and if he impresses at Atlanta he could be bought.
Tahith Chong, Andres Pereira and Joel Pereira could all be sold this summer as well. Joel might have a spot though if Manchester United finally let Sergio Romero go and whoever is sold after the first choice keeper battle is settled.
Manchester United are in good shape this summer with how well their loan players are doing this year and with other players likely to be sold, Manchester United will have no excuse not to reinvest in their first team squad.
