Manchester United transfer updates: AWB, Fernandes & Lukaku

Manchester United transfer updates: Tuesday June 25, 2019

After a disappointing sixth-placed Premier League finish last time out, it was always expected to be a busy summer at Manchester United.

The good news is that there is still optimism around with the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace Jose Mourinho midway through last season.

Solskjaer will get to reshape the Manchester United squad in this, his first summer transfer window as manager of the Old Trafford side.

Daniel James has come in from Swansea and there are high hopes for the speedy winger.

However, there look very likely to be plenty of incomings and outgoings as the summer progresses.

On Tuesday afternoon, there are three updates, regarding Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Sporting Lisbon playmaker Bruno Fernandes and Romelu Lukaku’s potential exit to Inter Milan.

Manchester United’s Wan-Bissaka talks ongoing

The first two Manchester United transfer updates come via the reliable Simon Peach of the Press Association.

Peach reports that talks regarding Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka are ongoing.

Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United are keen on Bruno Fernandes

Perhaps of more interest from Peach, is the news that Manchester United are keen on Sporting CP attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Manchester United certainly need some guile from midfield, and Fernandes has performed heroically for Sporting CP over the past two seasons.

Inter still trying to raise funds for Romelu Lukaku

The final Manchester United transfer update comes from the Daily Telegraph’s James Ducker.

He reports that Inter Milan are still trying to raise funds to sign Lukaku, by selling Mauro Icardi.

New Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is a huge admirer of Lukaku, and with Marcus Rashford thought to be the first-choice striker at Old Trafford, the Belgian hitman could be set to leave this summer.
