Manchester United transfer news today, live!

June 10 – Frenkie de Jong’s opening offer is declined

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have seen a bid rejected by Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong. The Dutch midfielder says he’s happy to stay at Barca but the Spanish giants need to cut costs to sign new players this summer and it looks like Frenkie de Jong is their most valuable asset. This will be the saga of the summer.

June 10 – Red Devils confirm senior squad, academy departures

Manchester United have confirmed that Edinson Cavani, Lee Grant, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have all left as their contracts have expired. Three academy products will leave as D’Mani Mellor, Reece Devine and Connor Stanley are all now out of contract. Paul McShane will continue in his coaching role after retiring, while young goalkeeper Paul Woolston was forced to retire in March due to injury, but United said “he continues to stay in close contact with the club as he embarks on the next stage of his career”.

You can already hear United fans saying ‘those are the starts… where are the comers?’ Rome wasn’t built in a day, folks.


June 9 – Man Utd interested in Oxlade-Chamberlain

There haven’t been a ton of transfers from Liverpool to Manchester United over the years but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is said to be ‘desperate’ to leave Anfield and the Red Devils are interested in the player.

That’s if Liverpool would consider a lower fee for the 28-year-old, who came with Southampton before moving to Arsenal. He scored three times with three assists in just over 1,500 minutes for Liverpool.

‘The Ox’ has barely seen a few minutes once the schedule has moved to 2022 and United are going to need help in midfield. Could a $15m purchase be a misguided move of relatively low-risk, high-paying stuff from United? (NM)


June 8 – Ibrahim Sangare to Man United, Chelsea

PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangare has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea in reports that the combative midfielder plans to be in the Premier League next season.

Sangare, 24, has a release clause of $44million and has three years left on his contract with PSV, having left Toulouse, then in Ligue 2, at the start of the 2020-21 season.

He recorded the third most tackles in the Eredivisie last season with 95 and the third most interceptions with 74, scoring three goals while passing the ball at almost 87%. (NM)


June 1 – Paul Pogba leaves Manchester United

As expected, Paul Pogba will leave United on a free transfer (for the second time) this summer. Pogba, 29, signed for United from Juventus in 2016 for a then-record fee of $112million. However, after winning the League Cup and Europa League titles in his first season at Old Trafford, Pogba failed to help United clinch more silverware and showed only glimpses of its shine. The France international midfielder was not helped by injuries and Jose Mourinho, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and then Ralf Rangnick were appointed in charge as United were unable to build a successful team around him. Despite all this, his second stint at United will ultimately be a failure.

United confirmed his departure and said the following: “Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Paul on his successful career and thank him for his contribution to Manchester United. We wish him all the best in the next stages of a remarkable journey.

Pogba has been linked with moves to Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG as a free agent and recent reports suggest a return to Juve is highly likely for the World Cup winner. (JPW)


June 1 – Frenkie de Jong to United?

Fabrizio Romano reports that United are in talks with Barcelona over a potential $91m transfer for Frenkie de Jong. The 25-year-old Dutch midfielder wants to stay at Barcelona and wants to play in the Champions League but his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is now in charge at United. De Jong is said to be United’s main man in midfield and with Barca needing to cut costs if they want to bring in Robert Lewandowski this summer, it looks like Frenkie de Jong could be one of the assets they won’t want sell but they have to.

May 31 – Ajax’s Jurrien Timber

Erik ten Hag has been linked with a number of his former Ajax charges, and young centre-back Jurrien Timber discusses his future amid rumored interest from Man United. Timber, 20, is a world-class passer from the back and is exceptional with the ball at his feet in possession, working his way into promising positions on the pitch. He is also a brave shot blocker who pressures the ball aggressively.

“Ultimately, my intuition will be the deciding factor,” Timber said, via Metro. “The image must be right. You can go to a big club. But if you’re not going to play there, it’s better to stay with Ajax. And Ajax is also a great club.

Timber ranks 13th in the Eredivisie in tackles, sitting 18th in interceptions. These numbers are impressive considering how often Ajax held the ball: 62% of the time. (NM)
