Football, Manchester United, PREMIER LEAGUE, Sports, TRANSFER
Manchester United won at Derby County today, 2-1, in their first preseason match of the season. (For the game news and notes go here). After the match Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dismissed the narrative that Jesse Lingard will be leaving the club this summer. According to various reports at differing points of the summer, Lingard has been linked with Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and of course West Ham. The Hammers are reportedly very interested, and why shouldn’t they be, given how well he performed with them during his second half of the season loan spell. Lingard re-ignited his then moribund career in East London, and that fine form has inspired him to stay at Old Trafford and try to win back a place in the team. “Jesse has come back, been bright, he wants to fight for his place...

Solskjaer is also keen to sign another right-back to push Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the same way Alex Telles helped improved Luke Shaw last season...

Jose Mourinho fires warning to Mason Greenwood after Jadon Sancho’s move to Manchester United

Football, Manchester United, PREMIER LEAGUE, Sports, TRANSFER
Jose Mourinho believes the arrival of Jadon Sancho at Manchester United could have a negative impact of Mason Greenwood’s progression at Old Trafford. Sancho successfully underwent his medical with United on Tuesday and the club are expected to complete their €85 million (£73.1m) deal to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger this week. Sancho has been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s top target to strengthen United’s right flank this summer. And 21-year-old’s versatility means he will be competing for a place in United’s wide areas with Anthony Martial, Dan James, Rashford and Greenwood. ourinho believes Greenwood, who missed out on a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad, is capable of making next year’s World Cup squad but is concerned the 19-year-old could be ‘hidden’ due to the competi...

Football, Manchester United, PREMIER LEAGUE, Sports, TRANSFER
The 18-year-old is considered a hot prospect and would likely cost around €30 million Manchester United are making progress in attempts to sign the midfielder Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes. The 18-year-old is a France international with three caps but went to the Under-21 European Championship rather than Euro 2020 this year. Rennes are open to selling Camavinga for about €30m because they could otherwise lose him for nothing next summer, when his contract is due to expire. He has been a long-term target for United and other clubs, notably Paris Saint-Germain, are also interested. Camavinga, who has been selected for this month’s Olympics, last August became – at 17 years, nine months and 17 days – the youngest player called into a France senior squad since 1932. He came on a...

Man United eye Raphaël Varane and give Juan Mata new deal

Football, Manchester United, PREMIER LEAGUE, Sports, TRANSFER, UEFA
Ole Gunnar Solskjær could bring in Real Madrid defender alongside Jadon Sancho Manchester United are monitoring Raphaël Varane with a view to a potential move for the Real Madrid centre-back and have given Juan Mata a new one-year deal. Ole Gunnar Solskjær wants to strengthen his central defensive options but after agreement was reached to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho for £73m (85m), United will only do deals that reflect the economic climate. Varane has been at Madrid since June 2011, winning three La Ligas and four Champions Leagues, and was a member of France’s triumphant 2018 World Cup team. The 28-year-old is in the final year of his contract but Madrid may still value him at about £50m (€58m), which United would view as unrealistic as they work to a pandemic...
