It’s clear there will be arrivals and exits aplenty this summer, given the level of improvement required and given some of the contract situations heading into this summer.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford as the summer window draws closer.

Milinkovic-Savic bids

United continue to be linked with a move for Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

According to Quotidiano, the Red Devils have already had an offer of £46.7million rejected, and they are preparing a bid worth £55million.

The report claims Lazio will also reject that bid, however, only willing to take a fee of £68million for their star midfielder.

Torres update

Yesterday brought fresh reports over Villarreal defender Pau Torres, and Diario AS have followed it up today with a report of their own.

They claim United have the biggest advantage in the race to sign the left-sided centre-back due to their reputation as a club.

It’s claimed this week could be key in the race to land Torres, with Tottenham also interested.

Pogba latest

Talks between Paul Pogba and Juventus are said to be going very slowly.

Pogba is set to leave United at the end of next month when his contract expires, and it has been widely reported that a return to Juventus is likely.

But Gazzetta Dello Sport and Tuttomercatoweb are reporting that there has been little progress since the initial offer, and the midfielder could be left hanging.
