According to a report from Daily Mail, Manchester United were the busiest club in the transfer market this summer with seven new additions to the squad and more than a dozen exits. Erik ten Hag had vowed to rebuild the squad this summer and the Red Devils have nearly managed to fare well after adding some really good talents.

Confirmed Manchester United Arrivals

Rasmus Hojlund (Atalanta, £72m)

Hojlund was one of the marquee signings by Erik ten Hag this summer, after the 20-year- old put pen to paper on a five-year contract at Old Trafford. He is poised to play a greater role in ten Hag’s squad with immense expectations from the fans after the striker received a huge round of applause as he walked on to the pitch in his debut. However, he remains sidelined for a while after sustaining an injury but we can expect him to return to full fitness and make an immediate impact.

Mason Mount (Chelsea, £60m)

Manchester United finalised the acquisition of Mason Mount from Chelsea in an early transfer window move, with the deal potentially reaching a value of £60 million. This agreement secures his presence at Old Trafford until at least the summer of 2028, with the possibility of extending for an additional year.

Following the signing of the new contract, Mount commented, “It’s never straightforward departing from the club where you developed, but Manchester United offers an enticing new challenge for the next chapter of my career.”

Andre Onana (Inter Milan, £47m)

Man United officially announced the addition of the 27-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper just prior to their pre-season tour in the United States. The club secured his services in a transfer deal valued at £47.1 million, signing him from Inter Milan. With the release of David De Gea, he has assumed the role of the first-choice goalkeeper under the management of Ten Hag, establishing himself as a vital component of the team.

Sergio Reguilon (Tottenham, loan)

Reguilon was loaned from Tottenham Hotspur just before the deadline day to offer immediate support to the defensive unit. This move became necessary as Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia suffered long-term injuries, leaving a void in the squad.

Sofyan Amrabat (Fiorentina, loan)

United secured the last-minute loan acquisition of Fiorentina midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, marking the most recent addition to their squad.

The loan deal entails an £8 million fee, with United also retaining the option to purchase the 27-year-old Moroccan for an initial sum of £17 million, along with an additional £4 million in potential add-ons at the conclusion of the season.
