Man United Lining Up Move for Wolves Midfielder Joao Gomes to Replace Casemiro

Manchester United have been reportedly linked with Wolves central midfielder Joao Gomes ahead of the 2024 summer transfer window. United are looking for a replacement for Casemiro and they have found Joao Gomes as a potential alternative for the 32-year-old Brazilian ahead of the 2024-25 season.

This summer is going to be one of the most crucial windows for the Premier League giants. It would be the first time when new co-owner of the club, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos will lead the transfer operations and decide who stays and comes in at Old Trafford. So, it would be quite a new experience for the club and the players as well.

Considering the performance of United this season, Ratcliffe first will decide the future of manager Erik ten Hag. After this, they will focus on the new potential targets and the squad revamp.

Casemiro’s stay at Old Trafford is in doubt due to the club’s interest in Wolves’ Joao Gomes. The former Real Madrid star is indeed an excellent midfielder full of skills and experience, but it seems his time is almost up at United. He will likely leave the club in the upcoming summer transfer window.

According to The Mirror, United have found Wolves midfielder Joao Gomes as a quality replacement for the 4-time Champions League winner. The report also claims that Man United have offered £40 million for the 23-year-old midfielder.

The former Flamengo man has been on the radar of the Red Devils for quite some time. United have been keeping tabs on the performances of the Wolves midfielder, most recently being the Wolves’ 2-1 victory against Fulham. In this win, Gomes showcased his skillset and ability which has impressed United even more.

However, the Red Devils aren’t the only ones interested in the services of the 23-year-old. They are facing tough competition from their fellow rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United. So, United will have to move quickly to beat their compatriots and secure the signing.

How Joao Gomes is a preferred option of Man United

Casemiro earns £350k per week at Old Trafford, but his performance this season hasn’t been worth the huge salary he costs the United exchequer. He has had a few injuries in this campaign which has stopped him from building some momentum or consistency. He has looked slow and out of form in quite a few matches. This increases the possibility of United singing the Wolves star.

Joao Gomes is young with great pace and tackling abilities. With 83, he is third this season in the Premier League in the number of tackles made. He has all the qualities to make a great pairing with Kobbie Mainoo at Old Trafford. Their partnership will give new heights to the midfield of United.

The Brazilian is capable of playing central midfielder as well as a holding midfielder which will be another great advantage for the Red Devils.

Midfield has been an area where United have struggled repeatedly this season. They need to find a solution for the midfield zone so that they can control the games and dominate their opponents.
