Manchester United have had a busy summer already with the signings of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made the two arrivals top priorities and will be over the moon that they have been brought in ahead of the end of the transfer window.
But the Red Devils coach is not done yet and is eyeing a midfielder to add to his squad, while he appears ready to can his plans to sign Kieran Trippier.
Several players have been linked including Aurelien Tchouameni while Real Madrid are looking to take on Paul Pogba.
Here are the latest United transfer rumours and gossip.
United have opened talks with Tchouameni’s agent in a bid to bring in the Monaco man this summer.
That figure is unattainable for both clubs – who are interested in signing the England international.
And it has seen interest ramp up in Tchouameni, who had a fine breakthrough campaign in Ligue 1 last season.
According to Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast, the midfielder is on their shortlist after saying: “Manchester United, [Tchouameni] very much falls within their scouting remit.
“The targeting of that kind of younger cadre of players who can develop into top stars has been more of a focus in recent years.
“He is an obvious fit for Manchester United if the change in midfield happens that we’ve been talking about for so long, which is that Paul Pogba doesn’t sign a new contract at Man Utd or is sold this summer.”
Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri also reported that United are in talks with his agents and an opening bid could come before the end of the summer.
Pogba triple deal
Real Madrid are looking to fund a deal to sign Pogba by selling three players to raise funds for a move.
It comes as Los Blancos finally look to sign Pogba, years after considering him a top target.
According to Diario AS, Madrid are happy to sell Gareth Bale, Isco and Marcelo to fund a move to the Frenchman.
Zinedine Zidane was the one pushing hard for the midfielder but his replacement, Carlo Ancelotti, is equally as obsessed with a transfer for the World Cup winner.
Selling the three mentioned would also help Madrid’s bloating wage bill with the trio not fancied by the Italian.
It is reported that their departures would alleviate €76m from their salaries but a move for Pogba would also boost that back up a bit.
Real have also been linked with moves for Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea and PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, who have entered the final years of their contracts.
Sheffield United eye Amad
Sheffield United are interested in signing Amad Diallo on loan from the Red Devils this summer.
The Championship club are desperate to bring in more attacking players before the end of the transfer window, report Sky Sports.
They are desperate to bounce back into the Premier League after relegation last year but are having trouble clicking going forward with their current options toiling.
Amad could be allowed to leave by United to let him garner some much-needed first-team experience.
The Ivorian struggled for game-time since his arrival in January and the signing of Jadon Sancho will only further push him down the pecking order.
