Another dramatic weekend at Manchester United was uncomfortable viewing for supporters as Brighton put three past the team at Old Trafford.

Pressure continues to grow on manager Erik ten Hag as the fan base's patience with results and the possible takeover hits new lows. Here's the latest transfer news from Manchester United.

Borussia Dortmund return unlikely for Jadon Sancho

A departure from Manchester United appears ever more inevitable for winger Jadon Sancho as his frosty fallout with Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag continues.

Rumours linking the forward to European clubs are starting to pick up on the continent even with the January transfer window still months away.

One of the clubs touted as a potential option for Sancho, who has just 12 goals in his 82 appearances for Manchester United, is his old German outfit Borussia Dortmund.

However, German outlet Sport Bild today ran a report on Sancho's future and claim that he is 'not an issue' for Dortmund, suggesting the club have no interest in a reunion. The publication adds that Sancho should 'keep sulking' and look at other interested clubs come the turn of the year.

Erik ten Hag could call in favour from old friend to land Liverpool target

Liverpool could rival Manchester United for the signing of Royal Antwerp midfielder Arthur Varmeeren, with both Premier League clubs reported to be tracking the star.

Jurgen Klopp's side endured a mass exodus of midfield talent this summer with Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just some of the names seeking pastures new. Liverpool have impressed so far this season but plugging those gaps could still be on Klopp's mind come January.

Mundo Deportivo now report that Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Monaco and West Ham have all scouted Vermeeren to join a long list of clubs including Manchester United and Liverpool.

United may have a bee in their bonnet with ten Hag knowing Royal Antwerp director of football Marc Overmars from their time together at Ajax, should the under-fire Red Devils' boss call in a favour.
