Ten Hag could sign Man United dream Casemiro heir with swoop for £55k per week monster

Manchester United’s season has already been extremely impressive, even without a win at Wembley. Erik ten Hag guided the group to a third-place finish and Carabao Cup triumph in his first season in charge. For the Red Devils, an FA Cup triumph would be the icing on the cake.

Such a great year seemed unimaginable after early-season losses to teams like Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford—the latter of which, a 4-0 thrashing, definitely had fans fearing the worst at the moment.

An important factor in the turnaround in fortunes from that dark day in west London was the later £70 million acquisition of Brazilian maestro Casemiro from Real Madrid, who reportedly stated his intention to “fix” United’s problems after witnessing the defeat to the Bees.

The 31-year-old, once recognized as one, was a “massive player” for the team, according to Ten Hag, a former Ajax manager. Ten Hag lauded his star summer signing as the “cement” in the team earlier in the season.

An concern resulting from the midfielder’s great play this season is the decline in standards or quality when he has been rested or suspended, as club icon Gary Neville pointed out. If the £350,000-per-week titan is available for selection, the treble winner claims that “Manchester United’s quality of performance jumps enormously.”

It is not unexpected that Ten Hag is said to be eager to sign a “younger” midfielder before the upcoming season to offer depth and longevity because his team lacks a viable substitute for the five-time Champions League champion.

The Old Trafford club believes that Tyler Adams of Leeds United is already the finest candidate to succeed Casemiro as the team’s star forward.

Should Man United acquire Tyler Adams?

Football Insider claims that the Red Devils are interested in tempting the American international away from Elland Road for a fee of roughly £35 million in light of the Whites’ recent promotion to the Championship.

As a result of that relegation, the former RB Leipzig star, who only relocated to Yorkshire on a £20 million deal last summer, is reportedly close to leaving before next season, with United being one of the interested parties, according to 90min.

Adams did miss the final 12 games of the season because of an injury, but prior to that the former Red Bull Salzburg star had been an absolute tiger at Leeds’ base of the midfield, earning the moniker “tackling machine” from football pundit Kevin Campbell.

Thanks to that ball-winning abilities, the £55k per week warrior nonetheless concluded the season with the joint-fourth most tackles in the division (89), matching Casemiro’s total despite the American’s protracted absence.

Adams and the current Old Trafford star had records that were remarkably similar, averaging 3.7 tackles and 1.5 interceptions per game over the course of his 24 league appearances, while Adams averaged 3.2 tackles and 1.2 interceptions per game over the course of his 28 league appearances.

As an indicator of his inventiveness, the Leeds “monster,” as commentator Alexi Lalas dubbed him, averaged one crucial pass per game, while Casemiro did the same. This implies that the two players may also have an impact on offense.

Ten Hag won’t be considering replacing the latter man anytime soon, but it might be wise to appoint Adams, his obvious heir, as some fierce competition and backup.
