Manchester United transfer news

In this article, we’ll cover all of today’s Manchester United transfer news.

Man United linked with Samuel Umtiti

Manchester United look to be in the market for a central defender this summer.

The name most heavily linked has been Raphael Varane of Real Madrid, whilst Sevilla’s Jules Kounde has also been touted as an option.

However, it is now another La Liga central defender who is now being linked with the Red Devils.

According to the Daily Star, Man Utd and Arsenal could make a move for Samuel Umtiti this summer with Barcelona said to be desperate to offload the player.

It is added that Umtiti is refusing to rescind his contract as Barca look to reduce their wage bill to help register new signings, meaning that they will likely look to sell Umtiti or send him out on loan.

Chelsea to move for Camavinga

Elsewhere, Man United look as though they could be facing competition for Eduardo Camavinga.

It was reported earlier this week that United will try to sign the young midfielder this summer, with Camavinga said to be open to joining the Premier League powerhouse:

However, reports stemming from France say Chelsea will make a move for the Rennes standout to rival United’s interest.

Real Madrid are also believed to be tracking the situation.

Axel Tuanzebe to Aston Villa

Despite Manchester United currently not having too many great centre-back options, the Red Devils appear to be letting one of them go out on loan.

Axel Tuanzebe has had something of a bit-part role at Old Trafford over the last few seasons, which included him making just nine Premier League appearances last term.

Now, with the summer window open, Tuanzebe appears set to be loaned out.

It is being reported that the centre-back is close to joining Aston Villa on loan, who he previously spent time with between 2018/19.
