Man Utd ‘failed’ in late transfer move as £34m defender ‘rejected’ by fellow Premier League club

Man Utd ‘failed’ in late player move on deadline day and defender was ‘rejected’ by fellow Premier League club Aston Villa.

Manchester United return to the action this weekend at home to Arsenal.

The Red Devils have won their past three games on the spin against Liverpool, Southampton and Leicester City and are going well now under Erik ten Hag after a tricky start.

The transfer window has shut and it turned out to be a very busy summer at Old Trafford.

Here is a look at the latest news regarding the club...

Striker eyed?

United reportedly saw an approach for Espanyol striker Raul de Tomas rejected on deadline day.

The attacker has scored 45 goals in 89 games for his current team, having previously played for the likes of Real Madrid and Benfica.

Football Insider have reported that Ten Hag ‘failed’ in a bid to lure him to England to further boost his attacking options.

Garner opens up about move

James Garner has left for a new chapter in his career at Everton.

The midfielder spent last term on loan in the Championship at Nottingham Forest and helped the Reds gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

He has spoken about his switch to Goodison Park, as per the Toffees’ official website:

“It’s a huge step in my career and I want to help the team get better while progressing as a player. I think Everton is the perfect place to do that. The manager has got a real plan for the club and for me.

“Working with him on a daily basis is major for me. Him and his staff can take me and the team to the next level. That’s what I’m hoping for.”

Aston Villa ‘rejected’ Man Utd defender

Aston Villa apparently turned down the chance to sign Eric Bailly from United.

The centre-back ended up moving to France to join Ligue 1 side Marseille on loan.

He was offered to Steven Gerrard’s side but they ‘rejected’ him, as detailed in a report by The Athletic.
