Manchester United still want to make one more signing this summer but need to sell first, according to reports.

The Red Devils have enjoyed a busy transfer window, adding Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton to their star-studded squad.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United are exploring the possibility of signing another midfielder before the end of August.

Doubts have been raised about the strength of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield, with many unconvinced by Fred and Scott McTominay.

There are also huge question marks over Paul Pogba’s future, with the Frenchman entering the final year of his Old Trafford contract.

And some believe Nemanja Matic’s best days are behind him after the ex-Chelsea star turned 33 last month.

Although Heaton arrived on a free transfer, the club have spent more than £110million on Sancho and Varane in recent weeks.

United are yet to make a substantial sale this summer, despite there being plenty of speculation.

The winger, who has one year left on his existing deal, enjoyed an excellent loan spell at the London Stadium in the second half of last season and he’s been pushed further down the pecking order at Old Trafford by Sancho.

Hammers goalkeeper Darren Randolph has dropped a huge hint about Lingard’s future by telling him ‘I’ll see you soon at training’ on Instagram.

Pogba could also leave as Paris Saint Germain are reportedly interested, although they may wait until next summer to get him on a free.

Varane will turn Manchester United into title contenders – he’s the signing of the summer in the Premier League.

Andreas Pereira and Brandon Williams are expected the leave on loan to Flamengo and Norwich respectively in the coming days.

And there’s a chance, albeit slim, that United could shift defender Phil Jones before the end of August.

Jones, 29, hasn’t played a competitive match for the club since January 2020 and it seems unlikely he’ll have a role to play this season.


If United do manage to free up some funds, one player they could bring in is 18-year-old midfielder Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes.

The young star is rated at £34m and has already picked up three senior caps for France, proving his quality at the highest level.

They’ve also been linked with Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma in recent months – and club legend Paul Parker thinks they should sign him.

Of a higher calibre are Declan Rice and Saul Niguez.

He called Atletico Madrid ace Niguez a “perfect fit” and on West Ham’s Rice, he said: “I think Declan Rice would be a massive addition to this squad. I’m a massive fan of his.”
