Latest Manchester United news and rumours as they prepare for their next game.

Manchester United welcome Barcelona to Old Trafford in the second leg of their Europa League clash. The pair drew 2-2 at the Camp Nou last week. Erik ten Hag’s side beat Leicester City 3-0 last time out. Here is a look at some of the latest news and rumours coming out of the club...

Defender on radar

United are interested in Napoli defender Kim Min-jae according to Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness). The Red Devils ‘would like to’ trigger his release clause this summer as they look to bolster their defensive department ahead of the next campaign.

He has been with his current club since joining them in July last year from Fenerbahce and helped them rise to the top of Serie A this term. The South Korea international was at the World Cup earlier this winter.

Midfielder latest

United are ‘likely’ to be in the hunt for a new central midfielder in the next transfer window amid links to Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund, as detailed in a report by The Athletic. The 19-year-old is expected to be a man in-demand after an impressive past couple of years playing in the Bundesliga.

The likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City have also been mentioned as potential destinations for the highly-rated England international. He burst into the Birmingham City first-team at the age of just 16 before he was lured over to Germany.
