- It's that time of the year again - the rumour mill gets rolling.
- The summer transfer window is set to open on June 9.
This should be a significant transfer campaign for Manchester United who need to take another step forward to finally challenge for the Premier League and Champions League title. Join us in trying to make sense of the rumours.
According to respected German outlet Sport1, Man United are 'still in pole position' to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window. The Red Devils are reportedly willing to spend £75 million on the Englishman.
Last month, Man United were listed among favourites to sign the Norwegian striker this summer. Edinson Cavani's new contract changes the picture, though, and BBC's Simon Stone points out that Haaland's move is now unlikely.
The Sun claim that Man United are preparing a £90 million offer for the Tottenham striker as the Glazers are trying to 'appease fans', but it's difficult to see Daniel Levy selling his team's best player to a Premier League rival. Simon Stone's report is relevant here, too.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Man United's director of football negotiations Matt Judge has reached out to Varane's representatives. The club will go 'all out' for a centre-back in the summer, but Real Madrid are expected to demand around £60 million for the Frenchman.
The Dutchman is another Man United player to be linked with Roma: as per Calciomercato, €30 million could be enough to make a deal happen. Sources in England, however, believe that there's no desire to sell Van de Beek just yet.
