Man Utd see mammoth bid rejected as Cristiano Ronaldo swap deal shot down

All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours as Erik ten Hag’s men look to build on their first win.

Manchester United will now be feeling a little more optimistic after their first win of the season.

Erik ten Hag’s men defeated Liverpool on Monday to bounce back from a disappointing start to the campaign, losing their first two games.

United will be looking to kick on from here, taking on Southampton away from home on Saturday afternoon.

In the meantime, the Red Devils will be eyeing more incomings as they look to finish building their squad for the campaign.

And with that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Antony update

United have come up short in their bid to land Ajax star Antony, or at least so far.

The Red Devils are said to have submitted a mammoth £76.3million bid for the winger, with Ten Hag eyeing a reunion.

But Ajax have rejected the bid, which is the second offer made by United, according to Sky Sports.

Antony has already said: “I’m not asking (for Ajax) to release me, I am asking Ajax to sell me as the highest bid received by a player who plays in the Eredivisie.”

Osimhen links shot down

Victor Osimhen is one player who appears unlikely to join United this summer.

Amid links with a Cristiano Ronaldo swap deal, Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda has spoken out.

He said via the Express: “No negotiations in progress, no swaps, Victor Osimhen is a Napoli player and wants to play the Champions League with his Napoli after winning it on the pitch with pride together with the coach and his teammates.”

Aubameyang interest

United are now said to be battling Chelsea for the signing of Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Blues need a striker after losing Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku this summer, and Aubameyang is seen as a good short-term option.

But according to GianlucaDiMarzio, United are also interested in the experienced frontman.
