PSG Midfielder ‘Tailor-Made’ for Premier League Amid Liverpool, Man Utd Links

Manchester United are eyeing Manuel Ugarte to strengthen their midfield this summer. The Paris Saint-Germain standout has also been linked to clubs other than Manchester United, such as AC Milan and Atlético Madrid. 

Recently, Ugarte’s agent Jorge Chijane told O Jogo that Liverpool are among the suitors keen on the player.

“Liverpool? There is a lot of talk but it is not the only club, there are others,” Ugarte’s agent said. “There are many possibilities on the table. It’s almost certain that he won’t stay [at PSG], it’s sure he’ll leave. I believe the situation will be resolved.”

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano recently disclosed that Manchester United and PSG have engaged in discussions regarding a potential transfer for Ugarte. Despite interest from several clubs, PSG is prepared to part ways with the midfielder this summer, making his departure imminent.

Ugarte has shown interest in joining United, indicating a readiness to move even if the club fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season. However, no formal bid has been submitted at this stage.

With so much information regarding the Uruguayan star, French football expert Jonathan Johnson wrote in his column for CaughtOffside his thoughts on Ugarte possibly leaving PSG for Old Trafford this summer.

“Ugarte to United seems to have gathered pace quite significantly and it’s not too surprising,” Johnson wrote. “I think Ugarte is tailor-made for the Premier League and I think the drop-off from Casemiro in the season just gone means it’s normal United would be looking for a profile like that to replace him.

“It’s also a good time for PSG to sell Ugarte because he’s in good form for the Uruguay national team at Copa America, so the fact that he’s performing well at an international tournament means his value won’t drop as drastically as it may have done as he’s not been that important at club level in the second half of last season. So it makes sense for PSG, United, and for the player.”
