Ousmane Dembele now appears to be a real option for Manchester United late in the window as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer begins to contemplate NOT signing Jadon Sancho, though the Red Devils will push hard until the end of the window next Monday.
Alternative will be sort in the final week though, with Ismaila Sarr an option at Watford. Dayot Upamecano, who could become available after RB Leizpig took major steps towards signing a new centre-back, is a compelling target. Then there is the shock talks of a move for N’Golo Kante from Chelsea – though his wages could become an issue.
Reports in Croatia suggest a £17m deal has been agreed for Dinamo Zagreb’s Josko Gvardiol, meaning Leipzig have a ready-made replacement should United capture Upamecano. While exits at Old Trafford remain intriguing with Sergio Romero a potential signing for Everton with Carlo Ancelotti unhappy with Jordan Pickford. Lazio could take Juan Mata and Andres Pereira off United as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to trim down his squad. Follow all the latest news, rumours and done deals below.
