All the latest news surrounding Manchester United as Erik ten Hag’s men prepare to face Brentford.

Manchester United are looking to bounce back quickly from their defeat to Newcastle United over the weekend.

Erik ten Hag’s men suffered a big blow in their top four bid at St James’ Park, but they have a quick opportunity to put things right, taking on Brentford on Wednesday night. As things stand, United are level on points with Tottenham in fourth, but they do still have two games in hand to play, and one of those is on Wednesday night.

As the Red Devils prepare for that one, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.

Frimpong claims

United are said to be ‘in talks’ over Bayer Leverkusen star Jeremie Frimpong.

Journalist Florian Plettenberg has tweeted: “News #Frimpong: Talks between his agent Jeffrey Lemmert and @ManUtd have started! 1st round was very positive. Ten Hag admires the player. Frimpong is open to leave Leverkusen in summer. Contract until 2025.”

It’s being claimed that the Dutch international could be available for around £35million, and it will be interesting to see if United can get a deal done ahead of the summer. United do need a full-back, and so it makes sense for them to get ahead of the chase.

Kim chase

Elsewhere, it is being claimed that United are interested in a move for Napoli star Kim Min-jae.

According to the Daily Mail, United, Liverpool and Tottenham are all interested in triggering the £60million release clause in the South Korean’s contract. The Red Devils are likely to sign a centre-back this season, with uncertainty surrounding Harry Maguire’s future, in particular.

Though, it seems there will be a big battle for Kim’s signature, with Bayern Munich and PSG also being linked ahead of this summer. With a release clause at play, Kim may well get his pick of clubs.
