Manchester United are back in action on Thursday night after another key weekend in their season. Erik ten Hag’s men advanced to the FA Cup final thanks to a penalty shootout win over Brighton, while Tottenham’s defeat in the Premier League provided a welcome boost in the race for Champions League football.
The Red Devils now have the opportunity to all-but wrap up the top four race by defeating Tottenham on Thursday night. As preparations ramp up for that one, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.
Fabrizio Romano has issued an update on United’s reported bid to land Napoli frontman Victor Osimhen.
“As I keep saying since January, nothing will be decided now for Osimhen. It’s not an April deal, probably not even May,” he said in his CaughtOffside Substack column. “There’s not even a price tag decided at this stage.
“It’s been claimed that Manchester United are in pole position and that Chelsea are out of the running, but nothing is decided yet and the race is absolutely open.”
United need to sign a striker this summer, but Osimhen is likely to be one of the most expensive options, with a number of teams being linked.
United are said to be interested in a deal to sign Croatia World Cup star Dominik Livakovic. The goalkeeper was one of the most impressive performers at the World Cup during the winter, and he reportedly has a number of suitors ahead of this summer, including Spanish club Villarreal.
There have been reports that United are close to agreeing a new deal to sign David De Gea to a new deal, but the Metro are saying Livakovic could be an alternative. It’s claimed the Dinamo Zagreb star has a release clause worth £8.8million, now heading towards the final year of his contract.
