Man Utd transfer round-up: Kieran Trippier breaks silence as PSG contact Paul Pogba


With Manchester United having seen a bid for Jadon Sancho accepted by Borussia Dortmund, their attention is now turning to their other transfer business.

The Red Devils are targeting a new centre-back and a new midfielder as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to build a squad fit for challenging for the Premier League title next season.

Solskjaer also hopes to add a new right-back to his team to provide Aaron Wan-Bissaka with more competition for a starting spot.

Heading in the other direction meanwhile, Paul Pogba’s future is far from certain, with a new contract yet to be agreed with the Frenchman.

Jesse Lingard has told Manchester United chiefs that he does not want to be part of any deal that would see Declan Rice move to Old Trafford.

Rice and Lingard were team-mates at West Ham in the second-half of the campaign just gone, when Lingard joined on a loan deal from United.

It was a successful stay in London for Lingard, who scored nine goals and notched five assists as the Hammers secured a European qualification place.

The Red Devils are eyeing a move for Rice as they look to bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s options in defensive midfield.

But according to ESPN, Lingard has told United that he does not wish to be part of any swap-deal that would see him and Rice swap clubs.

Trippier is thought to be ready to return to England after a two-year spell at Atletico Madrid, where he was a key part of the side which won La Liga in the campaign just gone.

The 30-year-old is currently away at Euro 2020 with England and has insisted he is concentrated on the Three Lions amid the links with a move to United.

“I’ve just enjoyed the season [at Atlético] and we’ve won the title,” Trippier told The Guardian.

“I’m away with England, we’re playing Denmark and I’m not focusing on my club or what is going on. I’m just focused on England and doing as best as I can if I play. If I don’t play, I still give 100%.”
