Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.
Chelsea’s signing of Pedro, in particular, will come as a blow after United had been linked with a move for him a number of weeks.
Attention has turned to alternatives and a representative for Dynamo Moscow striker Alexander Kokorin revealed that the Russian was in talks with United and Tottenham Hotspur over a move.
His comments may need to be taken with a pinch of salt, however, as player’s agents may just be taking advantage of the uncertainty at Old Trafford following the Pedro news.
Finally, United may reportedly consider taking on Real Madrid’s Borja Mayoral as part of any deal to sell David de Gea to the Spanish club.
The youngster has impressed in Madrid’s youth set up and for Spain’s U19 side but United might be wise to bring in an established striker rather than one who will need time to develop.
