Man United transfer news
In this article, we’ll cover all today’s Man United transfer news.
Real Madrid eye Donny van de Beek
The Star report that Real Madrid are interested in signing Donny van de Beek.
It’s claimed United are willing to Van de Beek leave Old Trafford, just one year after he joined from Ajax.
However, money is a problem for Real Madrid. The Star say Los Blancos cannot afford to sign the midfielder outright this summer. Accordingly, Real may pay United a £2 million loan fee to secure Van de Beek for the 2021-22 season.
But is this Star story believable? Remember, David Alaba is joining Real Madrid this summer following his switch from Bayern. So do Madrid need Van de Beek too?
Raphael Varane ‘agrees pre-contract’
Rumours of Raphael Varane’s possible move to Man United from Real Madrid continue on Sunday.
In the Sun, readers are told, “Real Madrid want Man Utd flop Donny van de Beek on loan as part of £50m Raphael Varane transfer”.
Meanwhile, ABC Deportes are claiming that Raphael Varane has reached a pre-agreement to sign for Man United. The defender is poised to agree a five-year contract worth €12m (£10.3m) per year.
Juve want to re-sign Paul Pogba
According to 90 Min, Juventus want to re-sign Paul Pogba.
In a supposed exclusive report, it’s claimed that Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has informed the club of his desire to re-sign Paul Pogba from Manchester United.
Pogba, 28, is under contract at United until 2022.
Previously, Pogba won two Serie A titles for Juventus while playing for Allegri.
David De Gea to stay at Old Trafford
The Times have reported that David De Gea has no intention of leaving Man United anytime soon, even though the Spanish keeper may no longer be #1.
De Gea is “determined to stay at Manchester United”, say the Times. Why? Well, the keeper’s salary could be a key reason. “De Gea has two years left on his £375,000 per week contract, which no other club would be willing to match.”
Dan James to Brighton?
The Sun suggest that Brighton could sign Welsh winger Dan James.
James played for Seagulls manager, Graham Potter, at Swansea.
Readers are told, “Brighton would ideally buy both James and Rodon on permanent deals. But Potter would willingly take the pair on loan should they fail in their quest to buy.”
Marcelo Brozovic links
After closing in on signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, could United sign Marcelo Brozovic next?
La Repubblica (via fcinter1908) claim that Man United and Barcelona are willing to offer Inter 30 million euros for Brozovic.
Jose Mourinho vs Luke Shaw
Not transfer related, Man United fans will no doubt come across the quotes from Jose Mourinho and Luke Shaw following England’s 4-0 win against Ukraine.
Shaw chipped in with 2 assists on Saturday: the Man United left-back now has 3 assists at Euro 2020.
The last England star to net 3 assists at a major tournament was David Beckham back in 2000.
After Ukraine, speaking on TalkSport, Jose Mourinho said: “Luke Shaw is playing better and better and better.”

Meanwhile, BeIN Sport asked Shaw to react to “winning in Jose’s backyard” after England’s win at Roma’s Stadio Olimpico. The United full-back said: “Look, it doesn’t matter. I think Jose has his opinion. He’s working for TalkSport and he has freedom of speech. He can say what he likes. I ignore everything and my objective is to help England.”
“He can say whatever he likes, I just keep my head down, ignore everything. My main objective is to help England.”
