Manchester United will be picking up the pieces from their first defeat of the season early this week. Erik ten Hag’s men suffered a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Saturday to continue a slightly concerning start after producing a sub-par performance despite their opening day win over Wolves.
Attention now turns to Nottingham Forest, but in the meantime, the Red Devils will be working on both incomings and outgoings, with more than a week still to go in the transfer window. Here we round up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.
Lineker on Greenwood
United have made the decision to part ways with Mason Greenwood.
After a lengthy investigation by the club - it has been decided that Greenwood will be found a new club to continue his career.
After the decision was confirmed on Monday, Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker tweeted: “Inevitable and right decision on an untenable situation.”
Todibo speaks to club
United will likely need exits to be able to strengthen at centre-back before the end of the window, with midfield the priority.
But if they do make a move, Jean-Clair Todibo has been linked, and the 23-year-old is said to have entered talks with current club OGC Nice over his future, seeking clarity on where his future lies. RMC Sport have reported the news, claiming Todibo wants clarity in the wake of reported interest from United.
The Red Devils have also been linked with a move for Bayern Munich star Benjamin Pavard recently, but it seems as though the Frenchman will be heading to Inter Milan, with the Champions League finalists said to be ‘confident’ of reaching a deal despite not yet reaching a deal with Bayern.
