Man United sign £115,000-a-week star and Newcastle united target to Old Trafford


Manchester United are trying to hijack Newcastle in the race to sign Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, who is set to become a free agent this summer, according to talkSPORT.

The outlet say the Magpies have launched contract negotiations with the Englishman, but United are hopeful to bring him back to Manchester.

Adarabioyo has made 25 appearances in all competitions for Fulham this season but was recently dropped by manager Marco Silva as the side began preparing for future without the Englishman. The 26-year-old has refused a contract extension with the Cottagers this year and is set for a new challenge in the Premier League.

While Newcastle are currently leading the race for Adarabioyo’s signature, interest in the defender is high as Manchester United are also hopeful, talkSPORT report.

While the Magpies stepped up contract talks with the colossal defender over the weekend in the hope of sealing their first summer signing, with journalist Alan Nixon previously saying that their offer would be worth around £115,000-a-week.

There is no agreement yet though and United and recently-appointed director Jason Wilcox are making a late burst to bring him to Old Trafford.

Newcastle are looking for new defensive signings after a series of injury setbacks recently. The Magpies are keen to bring Adarabioyo as a replacement for Sven Botman, who suffered an ACL injury in March and is set to miss the start of next season, as well as the upcoming European Championships.
