A look at all the latest Manchester United transfer news and rumors from Old Trafford today.
Manuel Akanji has been tipped to switch to United
Manchester United are in the middle of a disappointing campaign, with a Champions League place the best they can hope to achieve this season.
The Red Devils have bowed out of all cup tournaments during this period and their only focus now is on landing a top four spot in the Premier League.
That in itself can prove difficult, with Arsenal now four points ahead and with one game left to play.
But so far, United can afford to plan a bit for next season, with the international break taking hold this week.
And with that in mind, we’ve taken a look at all the recent transfer rumors.
Rumors of Harry Maguire
Could United get rid of center-back Harry Maguire in the midst of his poor form? Maguire have struggled this season, with the Red Devils continuing to fight defensive issues that they hoped to solve through this summer’s signing of Raphael Varane.
According to Fichajes, United could now be willing to sell Maguire after buying him for £ 80 million in 2019 as they look to renew their squad.
Akanji agreement ‘agreed’
Fichajes also reports that United have signed Borussia Dortmund star Manuel Akanji.
It is claimed that the Red Devils have already ‘bound’ an agreement on the center-back, which may be available at a good price before his contract expires in 2023.
United have been heavily linked with Akanji in recent weeks and if he were to be a Maguire replacement, he could save the club some serious money worth around £ 25 million.
Another current United star to be linked with a move away is goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who has fallen into the picks this season.
Henderson shared playing time with David De Gea last season, but in the midst of the Spaniard’s return to form, he has seen some action.
Reports suggest the England international will now continue this summer and the Daily Mirror says Tottenham are interested.
