Transfer News: Manchester United tipped to sign Allan Saint-Maximin
According to transfer news from Chronicle Live, Manchester United have been named as one of the destinations Allan Saint-Maximin could head to. The Newcastle winger has been tipped to leave the club in the summer with the club needing cash.
The Frenchman has already shown that he has all the qualities to excel in English football. While he has occasionally struggled for end-product in a mediocre Newcastle side, his pedigree as an incisive winger could surely be better utilised by playing alongside a better crop of players.
Newcastle will need to sell players if they want to sign new ones
Allan Saint-Maximin has already started to deliver on his potential and still has his best years ahead of him at 23. Luring the Frenchman to any club would surely involve a significant outlay in the market given that the forward has recently signed a new contract at Newcastle.
As the summer transfer window approaches, Newcastle are again hard-pressed for cash. Steve Bruce is likely to operate on a thin budget. If he wants to bring players in, he will have to do so by selling players like Saint-Maximin.
There might be no indication that the club want to sell or the player wanting to leave. However, in the event that he leaves, Manchester United have been deemed as a possible destination.

In all honesty, United don’t really need another winger to play on the left side. Rashford has been the first-choice there. The likes of Pogba, James and Martial have also occasionally been used in that role. United would be better served to go after their other transfer targets.
