Manchester United Eyeing Man City Academy Product for £40m+ Move: Report

Manchester United is reportedly in talks to sign a Man City academy product, Romeo Lavia, for a potential £40 million+ move. This audacious attempt to improve the squad is expected to agitate Man City, but United’s head coach, Erik ten Hag, seems to be willing to take the risk.

United’s Strong Debut Season Under Erik ten Hag

Manchester United has had a strong debut season under Erik ten Hag’s leadership. The team won the Carabao Cup this term and is still in contention for the Europa League and FA Cup, while sitting comfortably in the top four of the Premier League.

However, there have been some cracks in the side, particularly in the absence of midfielder Casemiro. Ten Hag is reportedly looking to address this issue by acquiring Romeo Lavia’s services.

Romeo Lavia: A Rising Star in the Football World

Southampton’s midfielder, Romeo Lavia, is a rising star in the football world. The Belgian teenager came through the ranks at Man City before moving to the south coast last summer.

Interestingly, Lavia’s entourage has reportedly met with representatives from Manchester United, despite his previous association with Man City. City still retains a buy-back clause for the young Belgian, but it reportedly won’t take effect until 2024.

Chelsea has also attempted a £50m last-ditch Deadline Day move for Lavia in the summer, according to Sky Sports. The fee to acquire the star could well be similar, should he be prised from St. Mary’s this summer.

Lavia’s Future and Potential Move

As a teenager, Lavia is wanted by several top sides and could leave Southampton this summer if the Saints are relegated. If Pep Guardiola wants to re-sign the star, it’ll cost Man City £40 million.
