Man Utd set to ‘circle back’ for in-demand striker amid £60m ‘transfer battle’ with Barcelona

All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours as Erik ten Hag’s men await their return to action.

Manchester United’s long wait to return to action continues amid the international break.

The international period has now taken hold, adding to United’s wait following the postponement of their clash with Leeds United last weekend.

It has been an interesting season so far for the Red Devils, who started poorly, but they have since picked up significantly.

Consistency will be key for United in their bid to return to the Champions League, and that begins with a date with rivals Manchester City after the break.

In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Osimhen interest

United are set to revive interest in Napoli forward Victor Osimhen during the January transfer window.

As cited by the Manchester Evening News, United failed to land the frontman during the summer window, but they have not given up.

Osimhen wound up staying at Napoli, priced out of a move having been one of the stand-out stars in Serie A over recent years.

The 23-year-old is under contract until 2025, and interest is expected in January from around Europe.

According to the report, United will be one of the clubs making a move, with a striker on the agenda.

Vanderson links

United have also been linked with a move for AS Monaco star Vanderson, with Sport reporting that a summer move fell short.

Vanderson only signed Monaco earlier this year, but the Red Devils are said to be keen on signing the right-back amid uncertainty over Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s future at Old Trafford.

According to a new report from Sport, via SportWitness, Barcelona are pursuing a move ahead of January, but they face ongoing competition for United.

Monaco are said to have asked for as much as £60million in the summer, not wanting to sell the defender.
