This summer’s transfer window is massive for the future of Man United as Sir Jim Ratcliffe sets about putting his plan in motion at Old Trafford.
The INEOS CEO has taken over 25% of the Premier League giants and is controlling football operations at the Manchester club.
United had a very quiet January transfer window but this summer is when Ratcliffe will get the chance to show fans of the club what he is about.
One name being linked to Man United already is Brighton’s Kaoru Mitoma with Football Transfers reporting that the Seagulls are open to selling the winger during the summer following the arrival of Ibrahim Osman.

In addition to Man United, Mitoma is on the transfer lists of Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea.
The 26-year-old would be a great addition to any of these clubs but the Japan international would have a huge impact at Man United as Erik ten Hag will be looking to replace Jadon Sancho at the end of the season.
Mitoma has played 25 matches for Brighton this season, providing Roberto De Zerbi’s team with three goals and a further six assists.
The winger is a very exciting talent and where he ends up ahead of the 2024/25 campaign remains to be seen.
