Manchester United show interest in Fikayo Tomori

Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly showing interest in AC Milan centre-back Fikayo Tomori.

According to Calciomercato, Manchester United are showing interest in current AC Milan and former Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori. The England international has emerged as one of the best defenders in Italy over the past season and a half.

Manchester United are looking at a major summer overhaul under new manager Erik ten Hag. The Red Devils are trying to strengthen multiple positions to get back to challenging for the Premier League title. While fans shouldn’t expect an instant change in the club’s fortune, the ongoing summer window will prove instrumental in how the ten Hag era pans out.

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and Ajax centre-back Lisandro Martinez are among their top targets, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s potential departure has now forced the club to look for a centre-forward.

The 20-time English champions are confident of completing a deal for Martinez, who played under ten Hag at Ajax and was also named the club’s player of the year last season. But Manchester United are keeping their options open, and Tomori is among the names they have considered.

The 24-year-old England international is a Chelsea youth product but wasn’t able to impress for their first team, making just 27 appearances for them before joining AC Milan on loan in the 2021 winter window. He made an instant impact in Italy, which forced the club to sign him permanently.

Tomori played an integral role as Milan returned to the pinnacle of Italian football, winning the 2021/22 Serie A. He is highly regarded by the club’s fans and the board, who are eager to tie him down to a longer deal.

Tomori currently has three years left on his contract with the Serie A giants, but they want to extend that by another two years and offer him better wages. Even Chelsea were once interested in re-signing the defender. However, Milan do not want to sell the defender at any cost this summer, which means Manchester United will have to focus on other targets.
