Manchester United have been scouting Portuguese forward since before the World Cup, according to Fabrizio Romano.

According to journalist Dean Jones, Manchester United are not feared to lose Bruno Fernandes to Real Madrid.
The reigning La Liga champions had bid for the Portuguese midfielder as they have had a long-lasting interest in the player.
But Erik Ten Hag considers Fernandes an integral part of his future plans at Old Trafford and with the Portuguese having five years left on his deal, a transfer away from England always looked unlikely.
After checking this out, there’s no real concerns at all from Manchester United’s end,” Jones told GiveMeSport.
“He signed a new contract this year and ten Hag loves him. He’s central to everything he’s got planned.
“I don’t think there’s any way he’s going to be sold to help fund another big transfer.”
In a report by English publication Mirror, it has been found that a Dutch journalist discovered Louis Van Gaal’s phone in a hotel toilet, where he discovered that Van Gaal had a couple of missed calls from a caller id termed ‘Manchester United.’
De Telegraaf’s Valentijn Driessen was the journalist in question, who discovered the calls on the former Manchester United’s manager phone.
The report further suggests that these calls were made as the Red Devils are increasing their pursuit of PSV and Netherlands forward Cody Gakpo.
The young striker has been heavily linked to a switch to Old Trafford, and the Manchester outfit are prepared to shell out £50m for him in January.
A report from MARCA suggests that Manchester United have offered their Argentine starlet to Real Madrid. Alejandro Garnacho has been in magnificent touch playing for the English outfit.
And despite Madrid’s previous interest in the player, a switch looks unlikely. The report further states that Manchester United might still look to extend the Argentine wonderkid’s contract.
Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi told Sky Sports that Manchester United and England star Marcus Rashford is a ‘really amazing’ player and that PSG would be tempted to take him on a free transfer.Rashford’s current contract at Manchester United runs out in the summer of 2023, and he has yet to sign a new deal. The club have the option of keeping him for another 12 months through an extension clause.

Manchester United are considering a move for 31-year-old Sevilla and Morocco goalkeeping star Yassine Bounou as a potential replacement for David de Gea, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.
Bounou, commonly known as Bono, shot to fame with a hat-trick of penalty stops in World Cup Round of 16 as Morocco defied all odds to beat Spain.

Musiala has had quite a magnificent season with 12 goals and 10 assist across all competitions from the German heavyweights.
The Red Devils are aware of Musiala’s talents and would look to offer him a lucrative deal to bring him onboard. But considering the youngster has a contract in Germany until 2026, a switch looks unlikely as of now.
Dutch forward Cody Gakpo would agree to join Premier League side Manchester United, reports THE KINGS. Gakpo has been in magnificent form for La Oranje in the ongoing World Cup in Qatar bagging three goals in four games.
The electrifying forward has been on Erik Ten Hag’s transfer wishlist for really long and a transfer to England could be on the cards for Gakpo.

Manchester United are looking to offer Italian heavyweights Diogo Dalot along with €30m for the signature of Denzel Dumfries, according to journalist Ciro Venerato(via Sport Witness).

And with Inter suffering from financial struggles an offer worth €30m along with Dalot could lure the Italian giants.
Calciomercatoweb has reported that Manchester United could be on the verge of losing their £73m signing Jadon Sancho. The 22-year-old has been sidelined under Erik Ten Hag due to his shambolic outings in England.
But the Blues still have faith in the former Borussia Dortmund talent and are willing to place a bet on Sancho.
Manchester United can use the money made from this signing and invest in their transfer targets like Dumfries and Gakpo, if the Red Devils show Sancho the exit door.
According to transfer pundit Fabrizio Romano, Cristiano Ronaldo has denied speculations suggesting that the Portuguese veteran would join Saudi Arabia outfit Al-Nassr.
Ronaldo and Manchester United parted ways after the 37-year-old’s revelations in an interview with Piers Morgan.
Since then Ronaldo has been linked to multiple clubs with Al-Nassr offering the talismanic striker a million dollar deal.
But Ronaldo after Portugal’s scintillating victory against Switzerland in Qatar revealed that the rumours indicating that he’s agreed a deal with Al-Nassr were false and were not true at all.

Manchester United want to sign a replacement for David de Gea and are aiming to sign Jan Obalk from Atletico Madrid, according to Fichajes.

Manchester United want to sign Celtic right-back Josip Juranovic from Celtic in the upcoming winter transfer window, according to Dean Jones (Give Me Sport).
Erik ten Hag wants to add depth to his backline and Juranovic has emerged as an option. The Celtic man has been impressive for Croatia at the ongoing World Cup.

Although the English outfit are aware that they are behind the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool when it comes to landing Bellingham.
“As far as I understand, it’s not that Manchester United are out of the race,” Romano stated.
“They want Bellingham but they know Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid have different power on the market at this stage of their project.
“So Man United will try but they know it’s more than difficult. Focus now is on January, not on June yet.”
Jadon Sancho could be fighting for a famous return to Borussia Dortmund, according to German outlet Ruhr24.
Red Devils had previously forked out about €73m for the services of the 22-year-old but Sancho has failed to mark an impression in England. And with him failing to constantly get in Erik Ten Hag’s eleven, a return to his former employees could be on the cards.
The English youngster was left out of Three Lions’ squad flying to Qatar leading him to deactivate his Instagram account.
But few days back Sancho had reinstated his account on the social media platform and all though it had no pictures, his profile contained a link with a few pictures from his Dortmund days.
This has left many fans in Germany ponder that Sancho could be vying to make a famous return to his former club and this could be his appeal to the German outfit.
Manchester United have joined the hunt for Thomas Meunier, according to the Express.
Although the Belgian international will only hear offers from the English club if Barcelona cool off their interest in him. Currently the Catalan giants are the frontrunners to sign Meunier, but the Red Devils are still pursuing his signature.
With Diogo Dalot only a viable option at right-back for Erik Ten Hag, the Dutch manager would hunt for an experienced player like Meunier in the winter transfer window.
According to Florian Plettenberg, Manchester United have been handed a big transfer blow as the English club are reportedly out of the hunt to land Bellingham.
The England international has showcased his masterclass in Qatar playing for the Three Lions, but according to reports Bellingham will not be joining the Red Devils this season.

Like the other clubs involved in the race, Erik Ten Hag and company want to bring-in Gvardiol in the summer of 2023.

Leeds United star Tyler Adams, who captained USA at the World Cup, will not leave the German club to join Manchester United in January, according to transfer insider Dean Jones (via Give Me Sport).

“Both Barcelona and Manchester United were interested in Thomas Meunier last August but there was no chance to agree on deal with Borussia Dortmund,” Romano said in his exclusive Substack column for CaughtOffside.
Manchester Evening News has reported that the Red Devils are currently the front runner to sign Swiss keeper Yann Sommer.
The veteran shot-stopper’s contract at Borussia Monchengladbach expires in 2023, and Sommer is prepared to depart for England to join the Red Devils.

According to the Mirror, Manchester United will have to fork out £50m for the signature of Dutch forward Cody Gakpo. The young player had 13 goals and 17 assists to his name heading into the Qatar.
Gakpo has been magnificent for his national outfit as well guiding the Dutch team to the quarter finals with his scintillating performances.
With the Red Devils having terminated Ronaldo’s contract, they are short of options in attack and Gakpo could be a brilliant signing to bolster Ten Hag’s forward battery.
According to Fichajes, Brighton will only begin to consider bids starting from €70m for midfielder Moisés Caicedo.
Caicedo has performed excellently for both club and country, even scoring for Ecuador at the World Cup. As a result many clubs are looking to sign him to reinforce their midfield, including Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund right-back Thomas Meunier, who has been linked to a move to Barcelona, will start listening to offers from Manchester United as his alleged move to the Camp Nou seems to be an obscure possibility now.
AC Milan, Juventus, and two London-based clubs are said to be monitoring Meunier’s situation too, according to Mundo Deportivo.
According to Calciomercato, Manchester United have established contact with the entourage of AC Milan midfielder Ismael Bennacer.
The Algerian star is entering the final 18-months of his contract, and the Rossoneri have struggled to entice him to sign a new long-term deal.
The club intends to keep him by raising his wage from €1.5 million to €3.4 million a year, but he could be lured to move elsewhere.
The 25-year-old just engaged Enzo Raiola, late super-agent Mino Raiola’s cousin, as his new agent, and both Manchester United and Chelsea are said to have made contact with him as they look to bring him back to English shores.
Manchester United are reportedly prepared to meet Martin Zubimendi’s 60 million release clause, with manager Erik ten Hag keen on signing the Real Sociedad midfielder.
According to Spanish outlet AS (via Sport Witness), the Red Devils have set their sights on Zubimendi. The Real Sociedad starlet has emerged as a top target for Erik ten Hag as he looks to shore up midfield options. Zubimendi’s current contract at Sociedad expires in 2025, but the midfielder has a €60 million release clause – a figure attainable by Manchester United.
The Mancunian giants are expected to trigger the clause in the summer as they consider Zubimendi a great value for the investment, with Barcelona also prowling for his signature.
According to journalist Daniele Longo, Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘very tempted’ to join Graham Potter’s Chelsea after parting ways with Manchester United.

Manchester United will have to cough up a guaranteed fee of €50m to bring in Dutch World Cup star Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven to the club in January, according to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Red Devils were keen on landing the PSV attacker’s services last summer, but opted against an approach as they ran out of budget after making a huge outlay of €100m to sign Antony from Ajax.
United are considering to revisit their interest in Gakpo in the new year, and Romano told Youtube channel The United Stand that PSV may now demand €50m upfront for the 23-year-old. Romano said: “I think they [PSV] want €50m guaranteed for Cody Gakpo.”

The transfer expert exclaimed, “Pulisic was already on Man United’s list in the summer, but Chelsea didn’t want to loan him out at that time. His future depends on the proposals, at the moment the situation is still quiet; Arsenal’s priority remains Mudryk for January but it’s still early.”

“Napoli insists they won’t sell Osimhen or any other player in January. The price tag in the summer was €120m and nothing happened, now they’re doing great in Serie A and Champions League so there are no plans to sell him in January at all,” said Romano.
According to Daily Star, tech giant Apple is interested in acquiring Manchester United after it was reported that the club is on sale.
The report suggests that Apple’s CEO Tim Cook is interested in owning the English club and could line up talks with banks that oversee the giant’s overseas sales which includes the Raine Group.
The deal would cost its new owners a sum of £5.8b as Apple’s future plans would include updating Old Trafford and increase funding for transfers.
Fichajes has reported that the Red Devils have identified Tottenham Hotspurs’ star-striker Harry Kane as the ideal replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United and Ronaldo parted ways after an ugly turn of events, and since then the club has been looking for backups. The club wants to sign Harry Kane in the upcoming January window as they look to challenge for a European spot.
Although Kane has spent a large chunk of his career being Tottenham’s main striker, a fresh challenge and better chances to win silverware could lure the English forward.
Manchester United have released an official statement that the club administration are looking for alternate ways to increase the club’s growth, which could include United owners, the Glazer family, selling the club after 17 years.
The Glazers have been subject to major dissent and protest from the fans due to the lack of investment and ambition shown by them in the last decade, which has led to Manchester United not winning the league since 2013.
Manchester United have been linked with Cody Gakpo over the summer and are now said to be firm favorites to land the Dutch forward according to reports in The Sun via Sky Sports.
The 23-year-old scored against Senegal in Netherland’s opening fixture at the World Cup.
Manchester United are looking at options to strengthen their attacking options under Erik ten Hag. According to Rudy Galetti, United are looking at Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram as an option.
The Frenchman’s contract ends in June 2023 but Borussia Monchengladbach’s could look to sell in January to make profit.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United have parted ways by mutual consent and the Portuguese is on the lookout for a new club.
According to Spanish outlet Marca, Ronaldo is “torn” between a January move to Newcastle and Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr, as those are the only clubs likely to meet his £520k-a-week wage.
Manchester United have confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit from the club with immediate effect after mutually agreeing to terminate his contract.
The Red Devils were said to be exploring ways to terminate Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at the club following his controversial “tell all” interview with Piers Morgan, where he lashed out at his manager, former team-mates, and the owners of the club.

According to Calcio Mercato, Manchester United are interested in signing for Poland and Juventus shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny to replace long-serving stopper David de Gea as they look to revamp their goalkeeping department.
With the Spaniard in the final year of his contract, the Red Devils are at risk of losing current number one De Gea on a free transfer next year. United do hold a one-year option on his deal, but the club could be looking to take a different route by parting ways with one of their top wage earners.
They are planning to sign a new number one next summer. Juventus star Szczesny has emerged as a possible option on their radar, with the Pole entering the final 18 months of his current contract in Turin.
According to The Sun, Real Madrid have knocked back the chance to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese superstar offered his services to Los Blancos on a six-month deal in what was desperate ploy to leave Manchester United in the wake of controversial Piers Morgan interview and seal a sensational return to the Spanish capital.
With Karim Benzema suffering an injury blow during international duty, rumours started to circulate that Ronaldo’s agent has offered his client to Madrid as a possible short-term fix.
However, the reigning Champions League and La Liga winners are not looking to sign a No. 9 in the winter transfer window, and have absolute confidence in Benzema making a return from injury, while Rodrygo is deemed as a capable enough option to provide cover untilthen.
Bologna forward Marko Arnautovic has confirmed that Manchester United tried to sign him mutliple times during the summer transfer window.
The 33-year-old joined Bologna from Shanghai Port in August 2021 and had a good debut season, scoring 15 goals in 34 appearances, including 14 in Serie A, garnering interest from Manchester United, who eventually decided against a move after discovering Bologna’s hefty asking price amid heavy fan backlash.
“For me it’s clear that the Red Devils remain at the top of the universe. And Bologna, as a name, are not. But that’s fine. Here everything is calm, you have time for yourself and no stress. This is only good for me.”
AS Roma director Tiago Pinto (via journalist Fabrizio Romano) has denied any suggestion that the club would be looking to pursue a deal for wantaway Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo.
As per Pinto, AS Roma never held talks with Ronaldo, and perhaps the media linked him with the Giallorossi due to the club’s Portuguese connection with Pinto himself and manager Jose Mourinho.
AS Roma director Tiago Pinto: “Cristiano Ronaldo has never been an option for Roma – nothing serious or concrete despite the rumours. We’ve never opened talks to sign him”. 🇵🇹 #ASRoma “Maybe they linked CR7 to us as I’m Portuguese and Mourinho too, but that was not the case”. pic.twitter.com/LgNWTSzcbR
According to The Daily Star, Manchester United are set to hand a new bumper contract to teenage sensation Alejandro Garnacho following his brilliant breakthrough under Erik ten Hag this campaign.
Garnacho, 18, is considered as one of the brightest young talents at United. He was outstanding earlier this month after being given the opportunity to shine by the manager.
The Argentine wonderkid scored on his full Europa League debut over Real Sociedad in a 1-0 win and came off the bench to provide two assists in the 4-2 EFL Cup win versus Aston Villa.
He scored a dramatic last-gasp winner at Fulham last weekend, which was his debut Premier League goal.
Frenkie De Jong has revealed that he sees himself in Spain for the next decade. After massive speculation linking him to Old Trafford, the Dutch midfielder decided to stay at Camp Nou and he has slowly started establishing his place in Xavi’s starting eleven.
Speaking to De Telegraaf, the 25-year-old said: “I am very happy in Barcelona. When I play it’s great and in terms of living here life is perfect. I see myself at Barcelona for as long as possible. I personally hope for another eight or 10 years.”
Erik Ten Hag is searching the transfer market to find the perfect successor to Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford, as the Portuguese striker is destined to leave the club. After Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, it became clear that the Red Devils will part ways with the 5 time Ballon D’Or winner.
And now according to the Spanish publication, ElNacional, Manchester United has identified Real Madrid’s Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr. as the perfect replacement for Ronaldo in Ten Hag’s forward battery.
Los Blancos have been looking to extend their electrifying winger’s contract which expires in 2024.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Manchester United have joined Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Barcelona forward Memphis Depay in January.
United are contemplating re-signing Depay since Cristiano Ronaldo could leave in January, with the Red Devils currently in the process of terminating the Portuguese icon’s contract following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan in which he slammed Erik ten Hag and the Glazers.
The Red Devils are trying to bolster their midfield, and view former flop Depay as a low-cost alternative.
Depay’s representatives have already alerted United, Arsenal, and Chelsea that the 28-year-old versatile attacker would be free to leave the Catalan giants when the transfer market reopens in January.
Mirror has claimed that Manchester United could be on the verge of losing Uruguayan wonderkid, Facundo Pellistri, after the World Cup in Qatar.
Facundo Pellistri, who has found his way into the Sky Blue’s roster, has failed to find himself in the starting eleven despite joining the Red Devils in 2020.

Edgardo Lasalvia said: “I think that with a good World Cup, as we think it will have, his departure is imminent.”
According to Manchester Evening News, Tottenham Hotspurs have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Kim Min-Jae giving Erik Ten Hag and company a major blow.
Manchester United were chasing the center-back for quite a long time but it looks like he’ll prefer the North London outfit over them. One of the main reasons for this is the presence of Son Heung-Min at Spurs who could be a key factor in the move.
Following the explosive interview by Ronaldo, Manchester United have taken the first steps to kicking Ronaldo out of the club. According to Chris Wheeler, Ronaldo’s contract will be torn up and he will effectively be sacked for a breach of contract.

With the Red Devils looking to offload Cristiano Ronaldo after his latest revelations in an interview with Piers Morgan, they could lure Mbappe to Old Trafford.
The Manchester outfit is prepared to fork out a salary of £500,000-a-week for Mbappe’s services, something they previously offered Ronaldo. Something that could concern United is that Mbappe currently garners £650,000-a-week under the new bumper contract he signed at the start of the summer.
Manchester United are in the market to bolster their squad and are said to be monitoring Sassuolo’s 23-year-old, Davide Frattesi, according to Il Resto del Carlino.
The box-to-box midfielder is enjoying a great campaign getting into Italy’s national team as well. United aren’t alone in the pursuit with Tottenham Hotspur also keeping tabs on the midfielder.
Cristiano Ronaldo revealed in his interview with Piers Morgan that he was close to joining Manchester City in the summer of 2021.
Cristiano Ronaldo tells @PiersMorgan: “I was close to joining Manchester City in 2021. I was surprised — as they tried hard to sign me”. 🚨🔴 #MUFCBut my heart, my history with Man United, Sir Alex Ferguson made the difference. The heart was speaking loud in that moment”. pic.twitter.com/OrAbVd6Krd

According to the Daily Mail (via The Shields Gazette), Newcastle United reportedly made contact with the player’s agent in the past and will be looking to pursue him again with the manager, Eddie Howe, said to be a big fan.
Following the shocking revelations made by Cristiano Ronaldo in an interview with Piers Morgan, Manchester United are reportedly considering “tearing up” Cristiano’s contract, Telegraph reports.
As long as the forward doesn’t request a pay-off for the remainder of his contract, the club will void Ronaldo’s contract in January.
Cristiano Ronaldo sent shockwaves throughout Europe with massive revelations against Manchester United and Erik Ten Hag. And with the Portuguese destined to depart from Old Trafford, Fichajes has figured out three possible destinations for the talismanic striker.
Ronaldo could either go to Chelsea considering Todd Boehly’s interest in the player or his boyhood club Sporting Lisbon for one final adventure. The last option for the 37-year-old could be to go to MLS considering his salary demands.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke while speaking to Give Me Sport explained that Manchester United’s right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka could be interested in a move back to his former club Crystal Palace.
Diogo Dalot has replaced Wan-Bissaka in Manchester United’s backline and it looks like a move away from Old Trafford can only revive the latter’s career. Crystal Palace has looked vulnerable at right-back and it could be a blessing in disguise if Wan-Bissaka decides to leave.
“I’m sure Wan-Bissaka would be interested in making that return to Selhurst Park, probably on a loan deal initially,” O’Rourke exclaimed.
“I think the right-back position at Palace is maybe not the strongest, with the likes of Joel Ward and Nathaniel Clyne sharing that spot right now.”
Manchester United could receive a major transfer boost next season. The Red Devils have struggled to find a deputy for Diogo Dalot at the right-back position and the Portuguese has looked vulnerable on several occasions.
With Aaron Wan-Bissaka not in Erik Ten Hag’s plans, the Manchester club could approach Barcelona for American international Sergino Dest. The club had approached Dest last summer as failed but a move couldn’t take place.
According to a recently published report by SPORT, the Catalan giants could offload Dest after he returns from his loan spell in Italy. With Erik Ten Hag already aware of Dest’s quality, the Dutch manager could target him next summer.
As per Fichajes, Manchester United see Brighton & Hove Albion goalkeeper Robert Sánchez as a potential successor of David de Gea next season.
De Gea’s contract expires next summer, with the Spanish goalkeeper unlikely to renew it. The report states that Juventus and Atletico Madrid are his most likely suitors.
Spanish publication Cadena SER has reported that Erik Ten Hag and company could send a second bid for Atletico Madrid’s starlet Joao Felix.
The Portuguese joined the Spanish outfit for a whopping price of £113m but has failed to make an impression. Manchester United are aware of Felix’s talent and are prepared to send another offer to acquire his services.
The Red Devils could see their dreams finally come true considering Felix is pushing for a move away from Wanda and La Rojiblancos themselves need cash to rebuild their squad.
Manchester United have asked their primary shot-stopper David De Gea to cut his wages short if the Spaniard wants to continue playing at the Theatre. According to The Daily Star, the Red Devils aren’t prepared to extend De Gea’s contract at his current weekly wages of £375,000.
Recently there has been a lot of speculation around De Gea’s future considering he was dropped from the Spanish team going to the World Cup. The report also suggests that the 32-year-old’s new salary would be around £100,000 weekly if he signs a new contract at Old Trafford.
Fichajes has reported that Barcelona is closely monitoring on Manchester United’s wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho. The Argentine forward has scored one goal and provided 2 assists in just 276 minutes for the English side.
Considering Garnacho’s contract expires in 2023, Erik Ten Hag would like to extend the Argentine’s contract despite multiple rumours. With Ronaldo’s future unknown and other clubs chasing Memphis Depay, the club would like to keep Garnacho and invest in him.
According to journalist Adrian Sanchez, the Red Devils have sent their first official bid for the signature of Memphis Depay from Barcelona. The Dutch international who’s been pushing for a switch away from Barca for more minutes might have found himself an exit door.
With Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford still unclear, Depay’s free signing could serve as a blessing for Erik Ten Hag and company.

According to Football Transfers the Red Devils are looking to sign a talented midfielder this summer and are ready to splash big bucks for their signature. The reports suggests that Manchester United could be looking to bring Newcastle United’s Brazilian sensation Bruno Guimaraes to the squad. A key feature of the newly reformed Magpies side Guimaraes has been impressive under Eddie Howe. The Brazilian has received many offers from England and a wonderful World Cup could see his price soar sky high.
Manchester United’s manager Erik Ten Hag is against sending Donny Van De Beek on loan to another team. The Dutch midfielder has struggled for minutes at the Theatre and would want to explore his luck somewhere else.
“A loan doesn’t make sense,” he told reporters.
“Either he finds himself or he proves himself in this atmosphere or he goes but for me there is still a way for him. But it is not going to be easy the competition there is strong.”
With the likes of Casemiro, Eriksen, Mctominay, and Fernandes all ahead in the pecking order, Van De Beek would wanna pack his bags and leave for another club.
According to Record Portugal, Manchester United will make a move for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernández in the January transfer window.
The Red Devils are ‘crazy’ for the player, and are apparently ready to spend big on the Argentine in the upcoming winter transfer window. The same reports mentions that they are leading the race for the player.
Benfica have, however, set the player’s release clause at a staggering £105 million, with Liverpool and Manchester City also pursuing the player.
Manchester United want Harry Maguire to leave the club in January, and according to Rudy Galetti, the England international’s former club Leicester City, along with two unnamed clubs, are interested in signing the player.
The report also states that the player will be allowed to leave for a fee in the region of €30 million.
Manchester United have shown interest in signing 22-year-old Norwich right-back, Max Aarons, as a potential option for the right-back position. The Red Devils now face competition from Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur.
According to 90min, Spurs will look to offload one of Emerson Royal or Matt Doherty and have identified Aarons as a potential candidate for the spot.
Journalist Rudy Galetti feels that Manchester United could axe Harry Maguire and Fred at the end of the season. After Erik ten Hag’s appointment, the English side have undergone a massive change and the duo have been dropped to the bench.
Former captain Harry Maguire has failed to make an impact and is on the radar of few clubs that regularly compete in the Europa League.
With Maguire falling down the pecking order under ten Hag, the English centre-back could switch ships for more minutes.
As for Fred, a contract extension looks impossible with Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, and Scott McTominay all given priority over the Brazilian midfielder.
Bayern Munich have reportedly refused to sell Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to Manchester United, according to transfer expert Christian Falk.
The Cameroon international has been in red-hot form this season and is on the radar of multiple Premier League outfits. But the idea of selling Choupo-Moting is off the table for the Bavarians as they are looking to offer him a lucrative contract, which would see him continue at the Allianz Arena.

According to the Telegraph, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been given the approval to sign a new right-back in the upcoming transfer window, provided the club offloads Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The former Crystal Palace defender has failed to make an impression at Old Trafford and could be shown the exit door. Although Diogo Dalot is the current starter under ten Hag, the former Ajax boss still wants a few reinforcements in the position.
Patrice Evra has advised Manchester United’s Dutch midfielder Donny Van De Beek to leave Old Trafford and find another team. Speaking to Betfair, the former Red Devils player suggested that the pressure at United isn’t helping the 25-year-old. Van De Beek has failed to become a constant starter even under the new leadership of former boss Erik Ten Haag and a switch looks evident for the Dutchman.
Manchester United are set to rival Liverpool for the signature of Dortmund prodigy, Youssoufa Moukoko. The 17-year-old has made 43 appearances for Dortmund and is a being chased by Liverpool and Manchester United, according Sport Bild (via TEAMtalk).

According to latest reports, Erik ten Hag has drawn a list of potential successors of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.
And one player who tops the catalogue is Napoli’s striker Victor Osimhen. The Nigerian forward has been exceptional up front for Napoli and the Red Devils could persuade him to move to England. With Ronaldo almost destined to depart from Old Trafford, ten Hag would be hopeful to capture Osimhen’s services next summer.
Reports coming out of Spain have reported that Manchester United are closely monitoring Memphis Depay’s situation at Barcelona.

Manchester United had approached Augusburg goalkeeper Rafał Gikiewicz in the summer, the player has revealed.
Not only was I linked, but I also signed various powers of attorney with either Manchester United or Newcastle United. In the goalkeeper market, everything works like dominoes. As Martin Dúbravka leaves, this is the place and so on,” he said during an interview with Canal+ Sport (as quoted by Sport Witness).
“They called me from England and asked if I wanted to take a risk.
