Man Utd ‘considering’ axing big-money star as fresh right-back option ‘emerges’

All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours as Erik ten Hag prepares for the January transfer window.

Manchester United have had a rather busy World Cup break so far, with action continuing in Qatar.

The Red Devils went into the break on the back of a late win over Fulham, but events since have made that win feel like a long time ago. Cristiano Ronaldo has been released on the back of his controversial interview, and the Glazer family have decided to look for a buyer, appeasing supporters who have been unhappy with the ownership situation for some time.

As that process unfolds, and as United fans look forward to the return of club football, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Sancho update

United are said to be contemplating finding a replacement for big-money signing Jadon Sancho.

Sancho was signed for more than £70million just a couple of years ago, but he has failed to live up to the billing so far, struggling for consistency to the point of missing out on a World Cup spot with England. The Daily Mail are now reporting that United are keeping their options open out wide as Sancho looks to get back to his best.

Interestingly, Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic has been named as a possible replacement option should it come to that.

Dumfries links

United are said to be lining up a World Cup star ahead of the January window, with Denzel Dumfries reportedly an option.

Erik ten Hag is likely to strengthen at right-back in the winter window, and Dumfries, currently playing for the Netherlands at the World Cup, could be on the radar.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport via Sportwitness, United and Chelsea are interested in signing the Inter Milan star, who could cost more than £50million this winter, and crucially, it’s also likely he will want assurances of regular football.
