Manchester United lead Premier League club delegation amid potential Strasbourg transfer raid

Manchester United continue to gear up their transfer war machine in preparation for retooling the first-team squad under incoming boss Erik ten Hag, with the Red Devils in attendance tonight to watch Paris Saint-Germain clash with RC Strasbourg at the Stade de la Meinau in Alsace.

Les Bleu et Blanc holds an early 1-0 lead through Kevin Gameiro at the time of writing, but United scouts are in the stands to keep tabs on Strasbourg center-forward Habid Diallo

Diallo, a 26-year-old Senegalese international, is having a fine season in the east of France this term with 11-goals to his name in 27-appearances and has become a key piece of the puzzle under Julien Stéphan as they remain in with a chance of securing European football next season. With United in need of center-forward reinforcements, Diallo could certainly tick a few boxes should the club miss out on bigger targets the likes of Harry Kane and Erling Haaland.

More importantly, also on the docket for United is 18-year-old French youth international Habib Diarra after the youngster was promoted into the first-team setup this season, where he has featured four times since.

But United is not the only Premier League club to watch Diarra specifically tonight, as Leicester City and Everton have both sent staff to cast an eye on the midfield youth product according to Santi Aouna.

Despite his age and relative few appearances in the first-team this season, Diarra is highly touted at Strasbourg and France at large, with even OGC Nice and German giants Bayern Munich also tracking him tonight, making securing his signature tricky for United should they view him as a viable transfer option this summer.

Once Ten Hag arrives at Old Trafford, it is expected that the Red Devils will look to upgrade and reinforce options in the center of the park under the Dutchman after both Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matić are set to leave the northwest of England during the transfer window.

Though links have begun to surface regarding names such as Frenkie de Jong – who PSG has also garnered interest in – as well as Aurélien Tchouameni and Kalvin Phillips, though the Leeds fan-favorite has recently rejected a move to the rivals of his boyhood club.

Regardless of the need for Man United to bring in a top-quality central player, the notion that they could also be looking at signings with the future in mind is certainly encouraging for their supporters.
