Man Utd transfer news LIVE

  • Manchester United have decided not to meet Leicester’s £90m asking price for Harry Maguire
  • Bruno Fernandes is keen to join United and he is hopeful of agreeing a deal
  • United have received a transfer boost with Lazio eager to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

United plan

Bruno Fernandes is reportedly not the first name on United’s wish-list.

The midfielder has been strongly linked to the Red Devils.

But Portuguese outlet A Bola claim United want to secure a centre-back before pursuing a move.

Harry Maguire could be the one for United.

Maguire update

Manchester United have not given up on Harry Maguire just yet.

“Manchester United say that to sign him, that deal is very much alive, Sky Sports News have been told,” presenter Tom White said on Good Morning Transfers.

“Leicester have made it clear that they have no interest in selling at the £70m asking price that Manchester United have offered.

“That’s especially after United paid £50m for Aaron Wan-Bissaka who doesn’t have quite the same experience.”

Solskjaer statement

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still on the transfer lookout.

He said: “It doesn’t matter if they are English, Norwegian, French, Brazilian. You just want good players and good people.

“Quality and speed, of course, is a big thing in football nowadays.

“The more x-factors you have in a team, the better you are.”

Woodward concern

United chief Ed Woodward is reportedly concerned that an inflated transfer market is damaging Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attempts to rebuild the squad this summer.

The Telegraph say there are fears among the United hierarchy that there seems to be a specific tax just for themselves.

They feel that clubs are, knowing United’s need to spend big this summer, slapping unnecessarily high price tags on players the Red Devils want.

It means attempts to sign Sean Longstaff and Harry Maguire are being delayed.

Barcelona sign Antoine Griezmann

Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona paid Griezmann’s £107m (€120m) release clause to sign the striker from Atletico Madrid.

The France international has penned a five-year contract with the Spanish giants.

Griezmann’s new contract also has an eye-watering €800m release clause.

Lukaku to Inter update

Man Utd and Inter Milan have “bad blood” between them and that could scupper any potential move for Romelu Lukaku, says Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol.

“There is some sort of bad blood between the two clubs,” Solhekol said.

“If you remember two years ago, Manchester United were desperate to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.

“They offered €45million, Inter Milan said ‘we will not let him go unless we get €50m’ and they refused to sell him over just €5m.

“And I think people at Manchester United remember how Inter Milan behaved two years ago.”

Diego Costa signing backed

Man Utd should only sell Romelu Lukaku if they bring in Diego Costa as his replacement, Sam Allardyce claims.

“I think he’d be a fit for United if they got rid of Lukaku,” he said.

“Lukaku by all accounts this morning, representatives of Inter Milan are talking to Manchester United.

“If you were manager of Manchester United, you would not sell him.”

Sean Longstaff deal close

Man Utd are on the verge of signing Sean Longstaff from Newcastle.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to sign Longstaff from Newcastle at a time where his midfield options are looking short.

The Guardian say that Newcastle are ‘on the verge’ of losing Longstaff to the Red Devils.

It has recently been claimed that the Toon have slapped a huge £50m price tag on Longstaff as they aim to keep United at bay.

Harry Maguire decision

Man Utd have decided not to meet Leicester’s £90m asking price for Harry Maguire.

The Evening Standard say United will not pay the world-record fee for the England international.

United have had a £70m bid for Maguire rejected, with the Foxes demanding over £75m.

The Red Devils appear set to drop their interest and focus on alternative targets instead.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic boost

Man Utd have received a transfer boost with Lazio eager to sell Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Calciomercato claim Lazio want to sell as quickly as possible.

Lazio want to sell Milinkovic-Savic swiftly so they have enough time to land a suitable replacement.

It’s said United are readying a £72million bid for the Serbia international this summer.
