and live on Freeview channel 276
Manchester United continue to monitor their transfer options this summer as they look to build on the team that secured a third-placed finish in the Premier League last season. Erik ten Hag has eyed up several potential suitors already, including Chelsea’s Mason Mount, who is set for an exit after failing to reach new terms with the Blues.
Here are some of the latest updates for Man United as the chaos of the transfer window continues to unfold.
Man United and Chelsea to discuss Mason Mount
Mount’s situation is one of the hottest topics of the transfer window right now and an exit from Stamford Bridge still hangs in the balance.
The Reds have grown frustrated with Chelsea after having three bids rejected for Mount and were close to pulling the plug completely on their pursuit. However, Fabrizio Romano has provided a promising update which could finally see terms agreed between the two Premier League sides.
“Direct club to club talks will take place within 24/48 hours to understand how to proceed,” the transfer expert tweeted. “Man United’s £55 million bid remains valid… but not forever.”
Offer for David de Gea replacement to be tabled
Another highly-discussed Man United transfer topic is David de Gea and where he will end up next season. His departure from Old Trafford looks imminent after the two parties have failed to reach mutual terms regarding a contract extension.
Not only that, but the Reds are currently shopping for his replacement and are said to be ready to table an offer for Inter’s André Onana. According to Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), the two clubs have ‘agreed on tight timing to close the deal’ for the goalkeeper to move to the Premier League this summer.
Ten Hag is eager to bring Onana to Man United and is well aware that Inter are standing firm on their €50 million (£43m) asking price. If conditions are met, the deal will ‘close almost immediately.’
