Let’s update Transfer In Football on the successful new signings for Man United in the 2023/24 season.
Man Utd Player Out: Selling half the squad

However, sources said Ten Hag was told he only had a £100 million transfer budget due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) restrictions. Manchester United will only be able to sell some players to increase funds.
According to the Daily Mail, Man United will listen to transfer offers for up to 13 players this summer. Who are Man Utd players to be sold? The club has valued Jadon Sancho at £45 million, and Harry Maguire at £40 million, and wants around £25 million for Anthony Martial. Midfielder Scott McTominay, who is a target of Newcastle, is valued at around £40 million. Goalkeeper Dean Henderson, having returned from a loan spell, will also be sold for £15 million.
The Daily Mail said the other 8 players will also be put up for sale, loaned out, or even released on free transfers. Midfielders Fred and Donny van de Beek are valued at £20 million, along with young striker Anthony Elanga. Defenders Alex Telles and Eric Bailly were both loaned out last season and will cost £10 million and £2 million respectively. Meanwhile, Brandon Williams is valued at £5 million. Young Tunisian midfielder Hannibal Mejbri hopes to fetch £13 million if he departs.
New signings for Manchester United 2023/24
Here are the new signing contracts for Man United summer 2023:
Mason Mount (Chelsea – £60 million)
Mason Mount became Man United’s first signing for summer 2023/24. The Red Devils signed the English midfielder from Chelsea for Mason Mount transfer fee of £60 million plus a 5-year contract with a 1-year auto-renewal clause.
A graduate of Chelsea’s academy. The midfielder has made 195 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 33 goals and contributing 37 assists. Mount’s departure from his boyhood club was inevitable after contract renewal talks with Chelsea broke down. The 24-year-old will be out of contract next year and Mount has also made it clear he has no intention of extending his contract with Stamford Bridge.
Mount’s relationship with Chelsea has deteriorated over the past 12 months and Mount hopes that joining Man United will help him regain his form after a difficult year.
In addition to the transfer fee, Man U also gave Mount considerable perks, offering him a salary of £250,000/week – 3 times what he earned at Chelsea (£75,000/week). In addition, there could be a £50,000/week bonus. As a result, Mount will be among the highest paid players at Man United, even higher than Antony (£200,000/week) and Bruno Fernandes (£240,000/week).
Andre Onana (Inter Milan – £52.50 million)
In Man Utd transfer news today live done deal 2023, they secured goalkeeper Andre Onana from Inter Milan for 52.5 million euros.
United manager Erik ten Hag, who previously worked with the Inter Milan goalkeeper, was keen to work with the 27-year-old player again. Previously, Andre Onana was the goalkeeper for Ajax when Erik ten Hag managed the club. Onana made the most saves in the 2022/2023 Champions League season.
Since his contract expired and he moved to Inter as a free agent, Onana has not played for Ajax again. However, the Dutch coach saw this as the perfect time to end De Gea’s 12-year association with Man United and replace him with Inter’s number-one keeper. Because Onana is considered one of the best ball-playing goalkeepers in world football today, a key factor in Ten Hag building Manchester’s style of play for the new season.
Rasmus Hojlund (Atalanta – £75 million)
Striker Rasmus Hojlund has officially become a new Manchester United player. The Red Devils had to pay Atalanta 75 million euros to secure the services of the Danish striker, making him one of Man Utd most expensive signings in history.
Rasmus Hojlund was Erik Ten Hag’s fifth choice when it came to Man Utd transfer targets this summer. The Dutch coach successively wanted Victor Osimhen, Harry Kane, Dusan Vlahovic, and Ivan Toney (before he was banned), but eventually chose Rasmus Hojlund.
Rasmus Hojlund caught attention with his deadly left foot and intelligent style of play. The striker is especially good at moving and running into space to take shots. His form in a Sturm Graz shirt led to Serie A club Atalanta buying him for £15 million, 10 times what Sturm Graz paid for Rasmus Hojlund. Last season, he scored 20 goals in 47 appearances for the Serie A club and Denmark. In March, he scored 5 goals in 2 European Championship qualifiers for Denmark, including a hat-trick against Finland.
Man United New Signing Rumour
The summer transfer window 2023 is closing in just a few days, but the Dutch coach still hasn’t made any additions as Man United hasn’t sold players to increase funds. However, new signings could still arrive at Old Trafford in the next few days as Maguire has re-entered negotiations with the club West Ham.
According to sources from The Sun, The Hammers and Manchester United are in new talks, with David Moyes’ team willing to pay more to complete the deal despite Maguire having two years left on his contract. Maguire’s agent is trying to resolve the wage issue so the former MU captain can depart amicably.
If this deal happens, MU could add not just one but two new signings in the remaining short time as Man Utd has received positive signals from Sofyan Amrabat and Marc Cucurella.
According to reputable journalist Romano, Fiorentina is still waiting for Man United and they will be ready to sign a loan deal with the Red Devils if the club has financial difficulties. Another source from the Mirror also said Chelsea is willing to loan Cucurella on the condition that Manchester United pays a loan fee and meets the wage demands for the Spanish player.
The Red Devils have spent £170 million this summer, and their funds are truly limited as the new owner has not been clearly identified. However, with the ambitions of the half-red Manchester team, the club will certainly find a way to complete the squad before officially entering the fierce race in the new season.
