Man United set to make first bid for sensational midfielder as part of INEOS’ overhaul – report


On Sunday, Manchester United registered their 14th Premier League defeat of the season in what was another frustrating performance from Erik ten Hag’s men, who could do little to trouble Arsenal at Old Trafford.

The rare positive moments that United produced either came from Kobbie Mainoo in the middle of the park or their two young wingers, Alejandro Garnacho and Amad Diallo.

As INEOS get ready to make their moves in the summer transfer window to rebuild the team, it is important they focus on adding more young and hungry talents to their ranks instead of ageing marquee names, like Casemiro, who dropped another disastrous display against the Gunners

t seems Sir Jim Ratcliffe intends to move in the same direction and are set to underline their vision by submitting an offer for one of the Championship’s most sought-after prospects.

According to The Northern Echo, the Red Devils are set to table a formal offer for Sunderland sensation Chris Rigg.

The English starlet, currently on a scholarship deal with Sunderland, will be eligible to sign his first professional deal in the summer when he turns 17.

Ahead of this, a host of clubs, both home and abroad, including Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, are monitoring his situation.

However, it appears United are prepared to make the first move.

The Black Cats, meanwhile, are hoping to convince Rigg to stay at the Stadium of Light on account of assured first-team football. At 16, he made 21 appearances in the Championship this season.
