Manuel Ugarte Close to Joining Manchester United from PSG

Manchester United is on the verge of signing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Manuel Ugarte, marking the first major acquisition under the new INEOS ownership. Reports from ESPN Uruguay and L’Equipe indicate that the 23-year-old Uruguayan is close to sealing the move to Old Trafford.

Ugarte’s potential transfer comes after a disappointing debut season at PSG, where he made 25 Ligue 1 appearances but was often left out of crucial matches, including the Champions League semi-finals. Despite interest from clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur, Ugarte seems set to join United, who are in dire need of a solid defensive midfielder following Casemiro’s dip in form.

The signing aligns with United’s summer rebuild strategy under manager Erik ten Hag and new stakeholders, INEOS, who bought a 25% stake in the club earlier this year. Ugarte’s arrival would address the team’s defensive vulnerabilities and add much-needed depth to the midfield.

Negotiations are reportedly progressing swiftly, with United prepared to finalize the deal after Ugarte’s Copa America commitments. This move could be a significant step in United’s efforts to strengthen their squad and improve their performance in the upcoming season.
