Manchester united are set to make another wrong transfer decision as they plot move for a free agent

Please do me a favour by hitting the "like" and "follow" option and read to the end.



With three premier league games remaining, they continues to be strong interests of how Manchester united will finish the season with four points separating them from third place Chelsea,after Chelsea defeated Norwich 1-0 at Stamford bridge on Tuesday night.

Meanwhile,Manchester united are said to be preparing for next season as the club is being continuously linked with some players and they are one of few teams who will have money to spend this summer despite the corona virus outbreak which have had an impact on the finances of football clubs.

But according to reports,Manchester united are plotting a shock free move for Jeff Hendrick after the Irish midfielder left Burnley upon the expiry of his contract at the end of June,it's a transfer decision which could be a bad decision for Manchester united.

Hendrick called time on his four year stay at Turf Moor after turning down a contract extension from the Clarets, coming as a major blow to boss Sean Dyche.

And according to Football insider, he could be set for a lucrative move to Old Trafford next.

United are understood to be monitoring the 28-year-old, who has earned 54 caps for his native Ireland, and could offer him the chance to join Ole Gunnar Solskaer's side.

They are likely to face competition in the race for his signature, however, with reports suggesting AC Milan, Inter Milan and Newcastle are also targeting him.

Given the fact he has only played topflight football for the last four years of his career, United making a move for Hendrick would be somewhat of a surprise.

The Red Devils have been linked with the likes of Jack Grealish, Corentin Tolisso, Thiago Alcantara, James Rodriguez and Declan Rice ahead of the summer transfer window.

Nevertheless, unlike the five players above Hendrick is available free of charge and he would also command a lower salary.

And with finances depleted amid the corona virus pandemic, that could prove enticing for United.

Solskjaer said last month: “I think the pandemic has hit everyone really hard.

"I still think we need to wait and see how things are panning out to know the real effects of the pandemic, to know what kind of financial state we are in.

“You see some teams invest, some teams don’t. We’ll have to take a big look at things ourselves to see how hard we’ve been hit. I know the club has announced a few numbers before.

"It's not for me to say we are going to have X amount because I don’t really know. I don’t really know how hard we have been hit.

“We are a financially strong club, but we are also probably being hit more than anybody else. Let’s see how quickly we can get our fans back into the stadium and of course the league position is going to be important for us this season".
