The Red Devils have started the season slowly, with only one point out of a potential six thus far.
Andre Onana has made an immediate impact, but fellow newcomer Mason Mount has struggled to make an impact against both Wolves and Tottenham.
Rasmus Hojlund is still on the mend after signing for United while injured. According to ESPN, Erik ten Hag is still looking for a backup goalkeeper and a new holding midfielder this transfer window.
In any event, the Manchester Evening News reports that a departure agreement has been reached with Groningen.
After finishing bottom of the Eredivisie last season, the Dutch team will compete in the second division next season. The MEN report they’re poised to sign Manchester United winger Noam Emeran to help their chances of promotion at the first time of asking.
When attracting Emeran to Old Trafford from French club Amiens in 2019, United fended off rival interest from PSG, Juventus, and Barcelona.
Emeran, who plays mostly as a left winger, shined during the preseason, even scoring against Leeds United.
However, with competition for left-sided positions high, Manchester United has judged that a permanent sale is the wisest course of action.
Several loan inquiries were made, but with Marcus Rashford, Alejandro Garnacho, and Jadon Sancho all on the books, United and Ten Hag believe it is best for Emeran’s development if he departs permanently.
Man United and Groningen have supposedly ‘agreed’ on a deal. Furthermore, the terms of the transaction will include a sell-on clause for Manchester United.
This ensures that United will be financially compensated if Emeran becomes a hit in the Netherlands. If Groningen sells Emeran at a huge profit, later on, United will get a nice cash influx.
