Manchester United look set to make their first signing of the summer, according to reports.
Frenkie de Jong and Tyrell Malacia have been the names which have featured most prominently in the rumour mill this week and it’s likely at least one deal will be completed next week.
Meanwhile, reports on Antony, Jurrien Timber and Christian Eriksen have been less frequently cited in the last few days.
But what are the latest United transfer rumours? We’ve rounded them all up below…
‘Here we go’
Fabrizio Romano has claimed Malacia has agreed personal terms for a move to Old Trafford and said the defender is ‘waiting to sign the contracts’.
In a tweet on Friday evening Romano said the transfer would cost United ‘€15m plus €2m add-ons’ (£12.95m & £1.73m).
Romano believes Malacia will be Ten Hag’s first signing since joining the club, while the Manchester Evening News reported an issue with the Netherlands international’s representation held up the transfer.
Tielemans in demand
United are on ‘high alert’ after Arsenal failed to agree a deal with Youri Tielemans, according to talkSPORT’s Alex Crook.
He claimed Ten Hag is a ‘big fan’ of the Leicester City midfielder, as talk of interest from the Gunners cools.
However, the Guardian reported Tielemans would rather move to London than Manchester.
Martinez price revealed
As per ESPN, United have held ‘positive talks’ with Ajax over the potential signing of Lisandro Martinez.
The Argentinian defender has been linked with a move to the Red Devils all week, and the outlet claimed Arsenal have had two bids rejected for Martinez, who is valued at £43m.
However, Ajax could be willing to ‘compromise over a fee’ that would see the centre-back link up with Erik ten Hag again.
ESPN add the new United manager is ‘hopeful’ of having Malacia in his squad when the Red Devils fly out for their pre-season tour on Friday, and claimed a deal could be wrapped up ‘in the coming days’.
