Newcastle United’s Pursuit of Moussa Diaby Stalls, Manchester United Lurking
Newcastle United’s quest to secure the services of Bayer Leverkusen’s talented winger, Moussa Diaby, has encountered a significant hurdle. Recent reports indicate that the Magpies have struggled to make progress in their pursuit, potentially providing an opportunity for Premier League giants Manchester United to exploit.
Renowned Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg sheds light on this intriguing development, revealing that Diaby has emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United’s astute manager, Erik Ten Hag.

While Newcastle United remains in dire need of reinforcements, it appears that Ten Hag has set his sights on bolstering his attacking options. Although Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane is widely believed to be the top priority for the Dutchman (The Times), complications in negotiations with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy might force Ten Hag to consider alternative targets.
Newcastle United’s failure to advance their interest in Diaby, despite the significant links, has inadvertently given Manchester United a potential advantage. As the Red Devils closely monitor the situation, they could be tempted to swoop in and secure the services of the promising young winger.
For Newcastle United, their pursuit of Diaby has hit an impasse, leaving the door ajar for Manchester United to capitalize on the situation. As negotiations continue and the transfer market heats up, it remains to be seen which club will ultimately win the race for the highly sought-after French talent.
