Seven Trapped In The Pipeline: Man United In/Out Transfers Reach Fever Pitch


Manchester United have found the goings tough in the current transfer window but a lot of movements in and out of the club can still happen between now and the end of the window in a little over a week’s time.

For now, four incoming transfers and three outgoing transfers are in the pipeline as per the various reports in the British media.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho is the undisputed top transfer target for the Red Devils and the long-running transfer saga has been resurrected in the last few hours after the club made an offer of £75m plus £15m for the winger.

Juventus winger Douglas Costa is their alternative for Sancho but they face competition for him from Wolves who want him as a replacement for new Liverpool signing Diogo Jota.

There has been little or no development in the potential transfer of FC Porto left-back Alex Telles to Manchester United in the past few hours. He has one year to run on his existing deal with the Portuguese giants.

Dayot Upamecano is a centre back target for Manchester United and they may have to pay over €50m for him in this transfer window as per the report from The Peoples Person. He has a €42m release clause in his RB Leipzig contract but it won’t be active until next summer.

For outgoings, Leeds United are interested in signing Daniel James from Manchester United, while Inter Milan want to sign Chris Smalling after the centre back’s successful loan spell at AS Roma last season.

Third choice Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also a target for Everton with Toffees shot stopper Jordan Pickford under pressure to perform.
