Man Utd transfer news round-up as Red Devils receive positive Sancho update

Manchester United are set for a huge summer transfer window, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eager to improve his options ahead of next season.

The Red Devils missed out on the Premier League title this year but came the closest they've come since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

And with a strong squad already, United want to build on that impressive campaign and bolster their options ahead of next season.

Having endured a calamitous transfer window last year, Ed Woodward and co are keen to avoid a repeat.

New director of football John Murtough is set to play an advanced role in transfers in order to sign their top targets.

Jadon Sancho is more confident than ever that he'll sign for United this summer, reports suggest.

The Borussia Dortmund wonderkid is United's top target ahead of the summer, and it seems the Bundesliga side will lower his asking price in order to facilitate a move.

Having asked for £108million last year, they've apparently asked for £85m this year, and are likely to accept a fee slightly lower than that figure.

David Moyes' Lingard update

David Moyes didn't hide his desire to sign Jesse Lingard permanently as the loan star continues to impress at the London Stadium.

Speaking over the weekend, Moyes said: ""I'm not sure how realistic it is… I think Jesse has enjoyed himself, I hope he has, we've enjoyed having him.

"Manchester United, he is their player so they can decide what to do with him. If they choose that they want to let him go then I'd hope he'd consider us as one of his options."

Varane bid rejected

United want a new centre-back this summer, but they've reportedly had a bid for Real Madrid's Raphael Varane rejected.

The French centre-back is only under contract until 2022 and isn't believed to be close to an extension, leading to speculation he will leave.

But Madrid apparently feel that United's opening offer of £40m was 'insufficient', and will ask for more money.
