United lost to Brighton in their season opener, and they followed that up by losing 4-0 to Brentford, conceding all four goals within 35 minutes.

The Spanish international was excellent last season, and with Ten Hag in desperate need of a striker this summer, the Red Devils appear to be pushing for a deal.

According to Cope, United have begun talks, with Espanyol valuing their star man at around £60million amid reported interest from other Premier League clubs.

Icardi latest

United could yet consider a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Mauro Icardi.

According to ESPN, the Red Devils have already rejected a swap deal opportunity to land Icardi, but that doesn’t mean a deal is necessarily off the table.

The Express report United are considering a deal to take the Argentine to Old Trafford, but this one wouldn’t come cheap.

Rabiot change

United are not planning to follow up interest in Juventus star Adrien Rabiot, according to reports.

It had been claimed the Red Devils were closing in on a midfielder, but according to The Telegraph, a deal is now looking unlikely.

It’s reported United don’t plan to follow up after a meeting with Rabiot’s agent and mother, and that’s despite positive talks.
