Erik ten Hag ‘rejected approach for Emi Martinez’ and other Manchester United transfer rumours

At the end of last season, question marks remained over the goalkeeping situation as David de Gea&aposs contract headed towards expiry. After weeks of negotiations, it was decided the Spaniard would move on from Old Trafford.

This left United with a hole to fill and according to The Independent, figures at the Theatre of Dreams wanted Martinez to be the next No.1. The former Arsenal man starred at the World Cup in Qatar a year ago as Argentina lifted the coveted prize.

However, these plans were vetoed by Ten Hag who wanted to reunite with his former Ajax shot stopped Andre Onana. The Cameroonian also enjoyed a good season last year as Inter reached the Champions League final.

Ten Hag&aposs insistence of course won and Onana has since had a mixed start to his time in Manchester. Elsewhere, United are reportedly monitoring Kylian Mbappe&aposs situation at PSG ahead of the summer transfer window.

Mbappe&aposs deal in the French capital will expire at the end of the campaign should he not decide to renew and there are suggestions Real Madrid have cooled their interest in the forward. According to Football Insider, this has led to a series of Premier League clubs keeping a close eye on the 24-year-old including United.

It is thought United, Manchester City and Chelsea are the only clubs in the Premier League who could afford to fund a deal which would suit Mbappe.
