Manchester United’s transfer business is far from over, despite shelling out £73m for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho. The Red Devils are still looking to get multiple deals over the line before the start of the new campaign by August.
Thus, let’s take a look at the latest bunch of transfer rumors linking the Red Devils.
On Monday, The Manchester Evening News reported that the Red Devils are close to finalizing personal terms with Raphael Varane. The Frenchman is reportedly keen on a move to Old Trafford, but United are still a bit far away (only £4m or so) from matching Real Madrid’s valuation of the defender.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are ‘very serious’ in their pursuit of Rennes star in Eduardo Camavinga. The French midfielder is also reportedly open to a move to England and has Old Trafford in sight but the Red Devils have to pay the Ligue 1 side something from around £35m-£42m to close the deal.
Man United are reportedly interested in swapping Eric Bailly to get Torres this summer if Villarreal agree to it. The Spanish defender is, however, an alternative to Varane and the Red Devils might not continue their pursuit for him if the Real Madrid defender’s move is completed.
United remain very interested in the West Ham United midfielder, However, the Hammers’ £90m+ demands are too much. And it has been reported that Jesse Lingard won’t be willing to be included in a swap+cash deal for Rice either, which further diminishes United’s chances of getting him.
Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed that the Red Devils will have discussions with Amad Diallo’s agents on a potential loan move for next summer after pre-season.
The Ivorian winger is currently with his national team preparing for the Olympics, but with Jadon Sancho’s arrival taking up that right-wing role, the youngster could well be loaned out for next season.
Lingard is reportedly ready to return United training soon and has made it clear he won’t move to West Ham on a swap deal with anyone. The Englishman will have talks on his future with Man United soon and could reportedly even sign a new contract, which probably indicates that he is at Old Trafford to stay.
