Manchester United are back in action within days following the conclusion of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Lisandro Martinez became a World Cup champion on Sunday, defeating Raphael Varane’s France in the final following a dramatic clash in Lusail. Meanwhile, United are preparing for their return to competitive action back at home. Erik ten Hag’s men take on Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening, and Premier League return will come six days later, against Nottingham Forest, with both games being at home.

The January transfer window will follow shortly after, and with that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Midfield wishlist

United are said to be interested in signing both Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham, but signing either player could be an uphill task, according to Fabrizio Romano.

“I said many times the same on Bellingham: Man United want to try for Bellingham, but they know they have not so many chances to sign him as there are many clubs pushing for a long time,” Romano told CaughtOffside. For Frenkie de Jong, I think it’s not time to restart the reports… it’s absolutely the same: for a future transfer to happen, Frenkie has to change his mind and this has not happened. He’s focused on Barca now.”

Wan-Bissaka interest

A battle is developing involving United star Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who may well be for sale this winter. The Red Devils are likely to sanction a sale for the former Crystal Palace star, as long as they can source a replacement, and according to the Manchester Evening News, interest is already spreading throughout the Premier League.

It’s claimed bottom side Wolves are interested in adding the full-back, who can also play wing-back, while West Ham are also said to be considering a bid ahead of the window swinging open.
