Erik ten Hag’s men scraped past Wolves in their season opener, and they will need to improve significantly if they want to get the best of Spurs this weekend. In the meantime, the club will be continuing to work on transfers, and particularly outgoings at this point after a busy summer of spending at Old Trafford.
With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours concerning United.
Journalist Alfredo Pedulla has issued an update on United’s chase of Sofyan Amrabat.
“It’s not that Manchester United are wrapped up, but all clubs have to make exits, but Fred is not enough,” he told Labaro Viola.
“McTominay and Van de Beek have to do, the valuation of the two cards are around €50m, then there would also be Maguire. Let’s consider that they also want Pavard, where Inter have also entered. Liverpool took two important spades, especially that of Caicedo. And they made the attempt for the Moroccan midfielder, but it depends on United.
“If the Red Devils find the treasure (from sales), he will go to United.”
Inter Milan boss Simone Inzaghi has confirmed the Italian club’s interest in reported United target Benjamin Pavard.
Inzaghi said during a press conference: “He is an objective, but I don’t like talking about players in other teams. He is not the only option and we need a player in that area.”
Pavard has been linked with a move to United amid a likely exit from Bayern Munich this summer, although it seems unlikely the Red Devils will spend so much on a defender now that Harry Maguire is likely to stick around beyond the deadline.
