Manchester United are the favorites to sign Ivan Toney in the summer.

The Red Devils are searching for a new striker in their team after the average season of Rasmus Hojlund with the team. They need the services of Rasmus, but in the meantime, they want to add quality up front.

Rasmus Hojlund has scored seven goals and provided two goals for the team and he seemed to be on the right track at the beginning of the season. But things went differently for the 21-year-old attacker, who is now in search of a new identity in the team.

As it stands United has to make some choices and this is not an easy job for Manchester United, which seeks improvement and stability. Erik ten Hag might be away at the end of the season and this is not the best news for the team. At the same time, the board is searching for the best alternatives in the market, striving for consistency in their transfer policy.

Here comes into play the name of Ivan Toney. He has not done the best season with Brentford. He has scored four goals and gave one assist for Brentford in this Premier League season. Toney has played a total of 273 minutes in 13 games and he is asking for more from his teammates and the coach.

Toney like Hojlund is a goal poacher and he needs correct balls to send them at the back of the goal. He didn’t play in the last match against Sheffield and Thomas Frank is thinking of a possible transfer, at least on paper. But nothing is clear at the end of the season and things can change fast, especially in an environment like the Premier League.

Ten Hag needs to understand two things to extend his time on the team. First, he must not ask with great determination to win immediately, because this puts too much pressure on the team. He must prepare the ground during the week for a stable and a high motivated team. This adding a bunch of different factors completes the picture for the United’s next game.

Secondly, he must give options to the bench with a modified formation. Saying that he must change the system if necessary and enter 11 lions on the pitch.

If he does that, the probability he stays is higher. Then he can ask for reinforcement. The board and Sir Jim Radcliffe are ready to complete his objectives. Toney is the right choice and in Manchester they are working for that.
