The 22-year-old is making his second appearance for Sociedad since his transfer from Real Madrid. Consistent with his exceptional form (six goals and four assists), representatives of Manchester United have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring him, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.


According to the Spanish outlet, United are contemplating a deal for him this summer and are willing to pay six to seven times his current contract. It is highly unlikely that Antony will be involved in a swap transaction; therefore, Sociedad will require the release clause of £52 million to be repaid in exchange for a transfer.Superb talent

Kubo is regarded as one of the Spanish Premier League’s most promising young wingers. In the past eighteen months, his contributions to the advancement of Sociedad have been instrumental. The Japanese superstar’s multiple goal contributions have solidified his position as the right flank’s focal point.


In addition, the former Real Madrid juvenile has distinguished himself through his speedy penetration of defenses and dexterity in the air. Moreover, he exhibits a penchant for engaging in duels and demonstrates the capacity to mature into a player of global stature in subsequent campaigns.


United’s apparent interest in signing him is not unexpected, given the club’s lackluster performance on the right flank. At this time, they have Amad Diallo, Antony, Jadon Sancho, and Facundo Pellistri as candidates, but none of them have impressed.Marcus Rashford has also experimented with the right flank position in recent weeks, but the Englishman has struggled to supply the required creativity. Kubo could potentially provide solutions to their challenges provided that they are prepared to adhere to the stipulations set forth by Sociedad.


Kubo’s entrance the following summer might coincide with several departures. Sancho, who has struggled under manager Erik ten Hag, is reportedly considering a move away from the club, whereas Pellistri or Amad could be loaned out for a year.

The Red Devils are presently winless in three games across all competitions; however, following last weekend’s hard-fought goalless draw at Liverpool, the squad should be in a good morale.


In addition to needing to score, manager Erik ten Hag will be looking for a similar defensive effort from his squad in their match against the Hammers. However, they have failed to do so in their previous three matches.United will have Bruno Fernandes available for the match ahead of schedule, following his league suspension of one game, whereas Diogo Dalot is suspended following his late dismissal against Liverpool.


Unfortunately, Victor Lindelof will be absent from the matchday squad due to a groin injury that required surgery. The central defender’s absence has been officially verified by the Red Devils to last for a minimum of one month.


Establishment: 4-2-3-1


Anticipated Lineup: André Onana performed admirably in last weekend’s match against Jurgen Klopp’s squad. Aside from one instant of apprehension between the sticks, he appeared to have made decisions with confidence on the whole. The Cameroonian recorded a clean sheet with eight saves and is aiming for another one-hit performance today.


In his presence, an enforced change will occur as Dalot is suspended for the duration of the contest. In his stead, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is an obvious replacement at right back.


Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans ought to remain in the central defense. The latter demonstrated his worth over the weekend by making an impressive fifteen clearances from the left center-back position.Sofyan Amrabat performed poorly in the derby. At Anfield, he was victorless in only one of his eight aerial and ground duels and ceded possession a staggering sixteen times.


Conversely, Kobbie Mainoo performed exceptionally well while playing alongside him. Three crucial shots were denied by the club graduate, who also conceded only three possessions to their archrivals.As soon as Fernandes returns from suspension, Amrabat is expected to be dismissed. Against the Hammers, the club captain ought to begin in his customary number 10 position.


Scott McTominay, who occupied the attacking position against Liverpool, ought to run alongside Mainoo in the park’s center. Last weekend, he won an impressive twelve duels.
