Report: Manchester United keen on budget midfielder, could be shrewd move

Manchester United have identified Rostov midfielder Mathias Normann as a summer transfer target, according to Calcio Mercato.

Normann was previously on the books of Brighton and Hove Albion between 2017-19 and failed to register a single league appearance for the English side during that period.

Whilst Normann may not be a player who is well-known but he has previously worked with Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before at Norwegian club Molde.

Whilst working under the Red Devils coach previously, Normann made 18 appearances in total.

He would have made more outings had it not been for his injury. Reported United target Normann is more of a creative player rather than a goal scorer. He has scored once and provided three assists for his side during the 2019/20 season.

Most clubs’ transfer plans this summer will be affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

With that being said, Normann is unlikely to cost much so United will still be able to afford him.

He would be a decent addition to Solskjaer’s side if he can maintain his current level of form and would be a cheaper option than some of the other big-money names United have been linked with.

The Old Trafford faithful will hope that their side can finish the season strongly and qualify for next season’s Champions League.
