    ALEX-IT STILL ON?

    Man United are still in talks over Porto's Alex Telles, say reports.

    In a busy day of transfer action at the club, the Telles deal is still on after days of talks.

    United are unwilling to meet the £18m asking price as his they can get him for free next summer.

    But with only 48 hours of the window to go, it is possible they may budge.

    SANCHO SILENCE

    Amid the drama of the Cavani deal, the Sancho speculation continues to buzz along in the background with the window remaining open for less than 50 hours.

    The chance of a deal is still on … or is it?

    MOURA MAGIC

    Ahead of tomorrow's meeting, it's worth remembering the time Spurs tore up Old Trafford.

    While they make happy memories for Tottenham fans, boss Jose Mourinho will not look back on the day with fondness.

    He was in charge of United that August day in 2018, and would be sacked by December.

    LOU ARE THE ONE

    The rumoured Edinson Cavani deal has been met with a mixed reaction from United fans, but one former player is happy with the prospect.

    Former Red Devil Louis Saha says the signing would be like Christmas coming early, amid rumours that the 33-year-old will be signing a two year deal.

    RASHFORD'S DAY

    Ahead of the visit of Spurs tomorrow, Man United have been looking back on the last time the Londoners made the journey up north to Old Trafford.

    Thanks to Marcus Rashford, it was not the day they wanted.

    TELLES SOMETHING GOOD

    Man United are still in talks over Porto's Alex Telles, say reports.

    In a busy day of transfer action at the club, the Telles deal is still on after days of talks.

    United are unwilling to meet the £18m asking price as his they can get him for free next summer.

    NOT CAVIN IT

    There's been a mixed reaction to the increasingly loud noises surrounding Edinson Cavani's potential move to Manchester United.

    One commentator compared it to the Red Devils' ill-fated moves for Radamel Falcao and Alexis Sanchez.

  • Kiro Evans

    EDIN IN

    The deal over Edinson Cavani is ALREADY done, according to reports which claim he has signed a two year contract with Man United.

    In the space of a few hours rumours linking the ex-PSG striker to Old Trafford have intensified and now ESPN say he has signed on the dotted line.

    Tomorrow he will travel for a medical, the report claim, and he could be announced on the same day.

    CAV SOME OF THAT

    Manchester United are reportedly close to sealing a sensational deal to sign free-agent Edinson Cavani.

    And the former Paris Saint-Germain striker could fly into the UK today to seal the deal.

    MailOnline reports that United 'are holding talks' with the 33-year-old and that his signing 'would make economic and sporting sense'.

    Cavani's demands of a £210,000 contract and a two-year deal had seemed a stumbling block but both parties could be keen to meet in the middle with the transfer deadline closing in.

    FACUN' MARVELLOUS

    Manchester United are nearing a deal for Penarol winger Facundo Pellistri, according to reports.

    The Uruguayan has agreed a five-year deal with United after being chased by Chelsea too.

    Pellistri's boss was former Old Trafford ace Diego Forlan until recently.

    The 2010 World Cup golden boot winner was sacked a month ago.

    According to Sebas Giovanelli of Sport 890, the Red Devils want him in England now, while the Uruguayan club want him to stay in South American until January.

    Another possibility is that United will sign him permanently and then loan him to Penarol until the new year.

    DARN JAMES

    Leeds have reportedly put the brakes on their summer chase for Manchester United starlet Daniel James.

    The Yorkshire giants have been mulling over a summer bid for the Wales ace, but club owner Andrea Radrizzani has ruled out the move.

    Leeds chief Radrizzani is said to have admitted James is his club’s top target but claimed officials won't be making a move for him this summer.

    Radrizzani told Stretty News: “Dan [James] is on top of our list but seems he will be staying at Man Utd. There is nothing.”

    WILLY SHINE?

    Reports from RMCSport suggest that Manchester United are in pole position to sign 16-year-oldWilly Kambwala.

    The highly rated central defender is currently at Ligue 2 side Sochaux.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been keeping tabs on him and is set to finally bring the teenager to Old Trafford.

    SANCHO KO

    Jadon Sancho has been left out of Borussia Dortmund’s squad AGAIN ahead of their clash against Freiburg due to ‘illness’.

    The England starlet missed training on Thursday, but reportedly was involved in ‘light training’ on Friday.

    Sancho is believed to be chasing a move to Manchester United before the transfer window closes on Monday.

    The 20-year-old was also missing for the German Supercup final defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday due to a ‘respiratory infection’.

    Dortmund confirmed today that is the same issue which has ruled the winger out of the Freiburg game.

    Keeper Roman Burki is also missing for the Bundesliga giants with a similar infection, but the club have confirmed both players have tested negative for coronavirus.

    TELLES TAILING OFF

    So far this transfer window has not gone down well for Manchester United and it seems as if the nightmare isn't over.

    They are set to miss out on another target this summer with Alex Telles' employers Porto not preparing to negotiate on £18m price tag according to the Daily Star.

    Solksjaer is desperate to sign a left back before the deadline but are only willing to stump up half the price.

    However patience could be a virtue as next summer Alex Telles could possibly join the club on a free.

    OUSMANE DEMBE-LOAN?

    Manchester United have seemed to have stepped up their pursuit on Ousmane Dembele.

    Struggling to land £108m winger Jadon Sancho have forced the Red Devils to look at alternatives such as the Barcelona star.

    As it stands, Manchester United are trying to negotiate what will just be a loan move for him.

    Fabrizio Romano has claimed that talks between the clubs are still on going – also with his agent.

    HOW ABOUT MAT

    Juan Mata has been voted Manchester United's Player of the Month for September.

    'EFF THIS, I'M OUT'

    Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku lashed out at his critics who continually judged his performances whilst at the club.

    Despite Lukaku netting 40 goals for the Red Devils, the fans never seemed to be quite satisfied.

    He told the Times: “A year ago, when I was in England, I was lazy, I didn't run, I didn't do this and that.”

    He admitted that his game has not changed however, without all the judgement, the Inter striker has been able to express himself a lot better.

    He added: “Here they call me the hardest worker in the room. if you look at me playing here and there, I mean there are improvements but the same Rom is still there.”

    Lukaku already has 37 goals to his name in Italy and does not show any signs of slowing down. This is his way of showing appreciation from his current team and fans.

    DIAGO-GO-GO GONE

    Manchester United defender Diago Dalot is on the verge of completing his season long loan move to AC Milan as he has traveled to Italy today according to Sky scources.

    He has unfortunately struggled to figure in the team and the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bisaka in 2019 pushed him further down the pecking order.

    His 35 appearances in two years is far from what the Portuguese professional expected when he joined the club.

    However he did complete 90 mins in Manchester United's most recent Carabao Cup Win which is what he hopes to get more of at his future club.

    LIKE LUCA YOU

    Manchester United will launch a big for Sevilla attacket Lucas Ocampos after being frustrated in their chase for Jadon Sancho, according to reports

    Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had also tried to pursue Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele on loan after hitting a wall with Borussia Dortmund.

    So now United are looking at Plan C to get in back-up for Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood before next week's deadline.

    Ocampos, a 26-year-old Argentine, has been at Sevilla since 2019 and helped the LaLiga side win the Europa League last term which included 17 goals in all competitions.

    ESPN claim Sevilla are ready to sell him for £35m.

    Solskjaer has turned his attention to Ocampos as Old Trafford chiefs refuse to stump up the £109m price tag Dortmund have put on Sancho, 20.

    GOOD MORNING, RED DEVILS FANS

    Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has warned Man Utd that their £108million asking price for Jadon Sancho will not change between now and deadline day.

    He said: “Of course we communicated with Manchester United in the past. 

    “But everything there is to tell on this matter from our end has already been said. 

    “And that won't change over the next three days”.

    Meanwhile, Lazio have completed their loan signing of Andreas Pereira from Man United.

    The Italians can make the deal permanent next summer for £24million.

    In other news, Arsene Wenger claims he was offered the Manchester United job in the past.

    He told the Times: “I was offered the [PSG] job a few times. [And Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and France].

    “[Man United?] Yes. [When?] I don’t tell you that. But I can tell you that Man Utd offered me the job.”

    Finally, Man United have pinched wonderkid Charlie McNeill from rivals Man City – with the Red Devils confirming the shock £750,000 move.

    The Old Trafford giants have confirmed the arrival of TWO new forwards to their Under-18s squad.

    As well as ex-City star McNeill, United welcome former Atletico Madrid youngster Alejandro Garnacho in a double-swoop with one eye on the future.

    OLE SORRY

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he was wrong to say Manchester United would ‘exploit’ the Covid-19 economic situation as they face more transfer woe.

    Borussia Dortmund will not budge on their £108million asking price for Jadon Sancho before Monday’s deadline.

    Solskjaer said: “My wording in lockdown, ‘exploit’, was a bad word by me.

    “I didn’t mean it in that respect, I meant there might be clubs and players out there who have to move because of the situation and it might be something interesting.

    “At the moment we’ve not had those situations. We’ve lost loads of money, as the other clubs have as well.

    “And when I talk about squad depth, we’ve got a big squad. Of course the transfer window is still open for a little while and the club has been working hard.

    “They know my view and that’s that we’re here to strengthen it, in the long term as well.”

    DONE DEAL

    Man United have pinched wonderkid Charlie McNeill from rivals Man City – with the Red Devils confirming the shock £750,000 move.

    The Old Trafford giants have confirmed the arrival of TWO new forwards to their Under-18s squad.

    As well as ex-City star McNeill, United welcome former Atletico Madrid youngster Alejandro Garnacho in a double-swoop with one eye on the future.

    Garnacho has already completed his self-isolation period and is ready to get down to work, according to Man Utd.

    And “prolific” McNeill is also set to start training immediately following his transfer – which was revealed by SunSport last month.

    DAVE SAVES

    Dimitar Berbatov has urged Man Utd to keep faith with David De Gea over Dean Henderson.

    He told Betfair: “De Gea is still one of the best keepers in the world, and he has a lot of time left for a goalkeeper.

    “He has saved the club so many times, and has been a tremendous servant, and he can still start games for now at least.

    “He has great competition in Dean, and that should help him push on, but I don't think now is the time for a change.”
