Chelsea drop out of the race for Brentford star Ivan Toney, handing the initiative to Manchester United Ivan Toney's potential departure from Brentford has caught the attention of Manchester United (h/t Express), who have received the nod from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal to pursue the striker. The addition of Toney would offer valuable support for Rasmus Hojlund in the Red Devils' attacking lineup.

With Toney's contract at Brentford set to expire in the next 12 months, the England international may be available at a discounted rate of PS40 million to PS50 million. This represents a significant increase from his initial transfer fee of PS5 million when he joined Brentford from Peterborough in 2020.

Since his move to Brentford, Toney has proven himself as a prolific goal scorer and creative force, tallying an impressive 72 goals and 22 assists in 137 appearances. His track record of success has elevated him to the radar of top clubs across the Premier League, with Manchester United eyeing him as a potential solution to bolster their attacking options.
