Man Utd receive fresh transfer ‘boost’ as rivals ‘express interest’

All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours as Erik ten Hag’s men prepare for the return of Premier League football.

Manchester United are now closing in on their return to Premier League action after playing their first competitive fixture following the World Cup on Wednesday. Erik ten Hag’s men saw off Championship high-flyers Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with Christian Eriksen and Marcus Rashford on target.

United will now look to build on that win when they face Nottingham Forest on December 27 in their first Premier League game back following a lengthy break. Attention will turn to the January transfer window shortly after, and with that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Wan-Bissaka latest

More details have emerged over Crystal Palace’s reported interest in re-signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka. It’s reported Wan-Bissaka is on his way out of Old Trafford having failed to impress following his big-money move to the club in 2019.

A fresh report from the Evening Standard claims Palace are indeed interested, and that an initial loan deal until the end of the season is the most likely scenario at this point. However, United are said to want to add depth to the right-back position before they allow Wan-Bissaka to leave during the winter window.

Sommer update

Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Yann Sommer has been linked with a move to Old Trafford recently. The veteran goalkeeper is said to be a possible target of United’s, with David De Gea yet to receive a new contract, while Dean Henderson’s future is unclear amid a loan spell with Nottingham Forest. According to Bild, Sommer is keen to make the move to United when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old could be a useful and cheap replacement for De Gea, at least in the short term. Though, it seems a final decision has not yet been made on De Gea, who has impressed so far this season for the most part.
