Manchester United’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur suggested Erik ten Hag can do with another signing or two before the close of the transfer window, as the Red Devils lacked teeth upfront and stability in the middle of the park.

There’s little to suggest United would add another forward to their ranks, though things could change should Anthony Martial departs. The Frenchman is attracting interest from the Saudi Pro League. Still, there’s a good chance the Old Trafford outfit will move for a new midfielder, and as per Fabrizio Romano, Sofyan Amrabat remains the top name in United’s list for a new midfielder.

For now, though, the club’s hierarchy is focused on trimming their squad, and has found an agreement for another permanent exit.

Manchester United agree to sell Noam Emeran

Emeran, 20, enjoyed a promising pre-season under Ten Hag and even scored a goal against Leeds United in Oslo, Norway. But he’s being allowed to depart as the path to first-team football is congested at the club currently. He is yet to make any senior matchday squad appearance.

The Manchester Evening News reports that United have agreed a deal with Dutch side FC Groningen for the transfer of Emeran. The English club have included a sell-on clause in the deal, indicating they still highly-rate the French forward.

Emeran will get to reunite with his academy teammates Zidane Iqbal and Bjorn Hardley in the Eredivisie. The duo moved to FC Utrecht permanently earlier in the summer.

Meanwhile, Monday also saw United confirm Mason Greenwood’s future will be away from the club. He could leave either on loan or permanently.

As per talkSPORT, AS Roma are one of many Serie A clubs interested in signing the player who last featured in the Premier League in January of 2022.
