Manchester United ‘agree’ personal terms with bargain ace amid ‘talks’ over £30m midfielder

All the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumours as Erik ten Hag’s men prepare for their pre-season opener.

Manchester United are now ramping up their preparations for the new season.

Erik ten Hag and his men are already back on the grass, and they will take on rivals Liverpool in Thailand on Tuesday night.

The fixture’s result will mean very little at this point of the summer, but it should help Ten Hag as he looks for further clues over where he needs to strengthen.

The Dutchman has already started adding to his squad, but he will want a number of further signings in a bid to get his side prepared for a much better campaign of next.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Red Devils:

Deal agreed

United are said to have agreed a deal with former Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha.

Strakosha is a free agent as things stand, training on his own at Rome over recent days ahead of finding a new club.

And with United needing to replace Dean Henderson this summer - with the former number two heading to Nottingham Forest - Strakosha has been identified.

According to the latest reports, the Red Devils have agreed personal terms, and the goalkeeper could link up with the squad in Australia.

Paredes talks

United are said to be in talks with PSG over the potential signing of Leandro Paredes.

It’s no secret the Red Devils need a defensive midfielder or two this summer following the departures of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

According to Angelo Mangiante, talks are now ongoing between United and PSG over the midfielder, with the French giants reportedly wanting as much as £30million this summer.

Ronaldo replacement

United are said to be considering a fresh option as they look to replace Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

It’s reported the Portuguese superstar could leave Old Trafford ahead of the new season, and according to Gianluca Di Marzio, former Juventus star and current free agent Paulo Dybala is the preferred replacement.

DiMarzio told wettfreunde: “They are looking for a No.9 and if they get Dybala they will have to change their playing style. But he’s on United’s list.”
