Pre-season is now just a couple of weeks away from officially beginning, and Erik ten Hag has not made an awful lot of progress with new signings.

United will be desperate to strengthen as they look to secure a return to the Champions League over the course of next season.

And as efforts continue on that front, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours.

Martinez links

United could get the perfect opportunity to land Ajax talent Lisandro Martinez.

De Telegraaf have said Arsenal are now backing away from the defensive midfielder, opening the door for the Red Devils.

It’s thought Martinez could cost more than £30million this summer, and it will be interesting to see if that’s a fee United will consider paying.

Eriksen boost

Speaking of clear opportunities, United could also get the perfect chance to snap up Brentford star Christian Eriksen this summer.

The midfielder is available on a free transfer, and it was thought Tottenham would be favourites, but according to football.london, Spurs are now distancing themselves from their former midfielder.

That could open the door for United to pull off a deal, though there could be other interested parties.

Garnacho concern

United are said to be closing in on a new deal for star youngster Alejandro Garnacho, but there is a fresh concern.

Amid news of progress on the contract front, a fresh report from Defensa Central has claimed Real Madrid are eyeing a move.

Los Blancos are said to be monitoring the situation in case the 17-year-old does not commit his long-term future at Old Trafford.
