Man United’s reasons behind targetting Thomas Lemar revealed
According to a report by ESPN, Manchester United are targetting a summer move for Atletico Madrid outcast Thomas Lemar for two chief reasons.
The former AS Monaco man shot to stardom due to his exploits for the French giants in the Champions League. Eventually, he moved to La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid but unfortunately, things have not gone in his favour at the Wanda Metropolitana.
ESPN claims that the style of play does not suit him and as a result, he has become a peripheral figure at the club.
With a little over three years left on his deal with Atletico, he won’t come cheap. However, United are mainly interested in him due to his beast of a left foot and creativity (h/t ESPN).
At 24, he would represent a long-term investment for us. In fact, Bruno Fernandes’ presence has proven to be a massive boost for the club’s overall gameplay and adding Lemar to the mix would be another step in the right direction.
Furthermore, ESPN claims that the player is keen on exiting the club. This is indeed a good chance for United to capitalize on the situation.

It remains to be seen if Ed Woodward is willing to splash the cash on a player who hasn’t featured much for his side over the past year or so. But given his potential, it would be worth considering.
