Laurie Whitwell from The Athletic has also said that Manchester United are still looking at Sancho.

Andre Silva interest?

The MEN have reported that as of now, United are not interested in signing Andre Silva. The Portuguese striker has been in fine form for Eintracht Frankfurt and has 22 goals in the Bundesliga so far this season.

Van de Beek’s future depends on Pogba.

Laurie Whitwell has reported that, there have been no talks about Donny van de Beek leaving and no feedback from United to suggest they want to sell him. His future will depend on Paul Pogba.

James Ducker said that Van de Beek and United had little interest in the approaches made by other clubs in January. He also pointed out that the Dutchman was signed in anticipation of Pogba leaving this summer.

Jules Koundé and Sven Botman on the list of United

Romano has reported that Joules Kounde is highly regarded by United and is one of the options on United’s list along with Lille centre-back Sven Botman.

Ben White open to join United

The MEN have reported that Ben White is open to the idea of moving to United this summer, but Brighton could command a fee well in excess of £35million. United have been tracking him.

Alex Telles involved in a swap deal?

Earlier this week, Portuguese outlet Record claimed that United have an interest in signing Nuno Mendes [18] and an English emissary has offered Alex Telles to Sporting as a bargaining chip. However, these rumours were refuted by UOL who claim that Alex Telles has total confidence from Ole Gunnar Solskjær, with United not even considering his departure in the summer.

David de Gea or Dean Henderson?

Fabrizio Romano confirmed that United will make a decision about the futures of David De Gea and Dean Henderson at the end of the season. Fabrizio also suggested that the goalkeepers market in the summer would be very complicated with most of the top clubs happy with their present keepers.

The Daily Mail have reported that De Gea is ready to call time on his United career, with his camp already offering his services to top European clubs. They say that United will seek a transfer fee in the region of £50 million.

Laurie Whitwell has suggested that should De Gea leave, United would clearly need to bring in a second choice goal keeper due to the contractual situations of Lee Grant and Sergio Romero. Andy Mitten added that in the case of a departure, the Spaniard’s wages would likely be subsidised by United.
