Manchester United’s preparations for next season can begin properly now that the summer transfer window is officially open.
The Red Devils are expected to be busy in the coming months as they look to build a squad capable of challenging at the top end of the Premier League table once more.
With that in mind, we’ve gathered up a handful of the latest updates involving United’s potential transfer business...
United make ‘attractive’ Neves bid
Wolves have received an offer from United for midfielder Ruben Neves.
According to continental outlet O Jogo, the Red Devils have tabled a proposal that is ‘much more attractive’ than a purported rival bid from Catalan giants Barcelona.
Bruno Lage’s side are said to be closing in on a deal for Portugal star Joao Palhinha, currently at Sporting CP, but Wanderers may need to secure the sale of Neves in the coming weeks to ensure it goes through without a hitch.
The 25-year-old is represented by Jorge Mendes, who is understood to prefer the prospect of an agreement with Barca, but at the time of writing, United are said to be offering a package which would be more ‘advantageous’ to Wolves.
Oxlade-Chamberlain price revealed
United will reportedly have to fork out just £10 million to lure Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Old Trafford from Liverpool this summer.
The midfielder has struggled for minutes at Anfield in recent times, and is understood to be surplus to requirements on Merseyside.
An exit in the coming weeks is widely expected at this stage, and United are among the sides who are being mentioned as potential suitors.
Any deal for the 28-year-old could prove to be relatively cheap too, according to the Liverpool Echo.
West Ham and Aston Villa are also being linked.
Garnacho contract update
United are also said to be hard at work securing a new contract for rising star Alejandro Garnacho.
As per transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the Red Devils are eager to tie the 17-year-old Argentina youth international down to a long-term deal, with a five-year deal in the pipeline.
The hope at this stage appears to be that an agreement can be reached before the end of the year, and talks are already understood to be in progress.
Any hastiness on United’s part may also have been exacerbated by recent suggestions that Juventus were plotting a raid for the winger.
