According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United could reportedly be curious about marking Brentford striker Ivan Toney. The Englishman has been prolific for the Bees since entering from Peterborough United in 2020. He supported Brentford get to advance to the Premier League in his first season, having goals and 10 assists in 45 matches in the Championship.
He has achieved 52 goals and delivered 19 assists in 97 matches across whole competitions for the club so far.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke has claimed that if Manchester United go for him, Toney would certainly be interested in moving to Old Trafford. O’Rourke told GiveMeSport:
“Ivan Toney, he’s worked wonders to get that call-up to the England squad. He’s been instrumental for Brentford since they came up to the Premier League last season. And the chance to move to a massive club like Manchester United, I’m sure, would turn his head. That’s pretty obvious, I think, for any player.”
Gareth Southgate named Ivan Toney to the England team for the UEFA Nations League. However, he was exited out of the squad in their 1-0 defeat against Italy on September 23. The Three Lions will now face Germany on Monday (September 26) which could see Toney making his international debut.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, must sign a striker. Anthony Martial’s injury issues and Cristiano Ronaldo’s age (37) have left the Red Devils powerless in the position. Antonio Valencia guided Manchester United to sign compatriot Former Manchester United full-back Antonio Valencia has heaped praise on Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Moises Caicedo.
Valencia argued that Caicedo earns a move to a bigger club and wished for him to join the Red Devils in the future.
