Manchester United transfer news LIVE Jadon Sancho shirt number as Man Utd 'lead' Ruben Neves race

Follow throughout the day for the latest Man United transfer rumours and breaking news.


Manchester United are continuing to train hard at their pre-season training camp in Surrey ahead of Saturday's pre-season friendly against QPR.

United defeated Derby County 2-1 last weekend, thanks to goals from Tahith Chong and Facundo Pellistri, in their first outing of the summer and have been boosted by the returns of Scott McTominay and Daniel James.

Meanwhile, Donny van de Beek is ready to snub interest from Italy, Spain and Germany to stay at United this summer.

The Holland international endured a tough first campaign at Old Trafford and he has been linked with a move away during this transfer window.

Clubs in Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga have all made tentative enquiries but just 12 months after joining United for £35million Van de Beek sees his future at Old Trafford and he wants to stay and fight for his place.

Sources close to the player have said the 24-year-old is feeling "fit, fresh and ready for the challenge" after missing the European Championship this summer to rest a groin injury that had been bothering him towards the end of the season.

Why United have not announced Jadon Sancho's transfer yet

The announcement of Jadon Sancho’s transfer to Manchester United has been delayed by a 'minor issue'.

Sancho agreed personal terms with United before the club had a £72.9million bid accepted by Borussia Dortmund three weeks ago and the 21-year-old arrived at United’s Carrington training complex last week to complete a medical.

United had planned on confirming the Sancho deal late last week but there has been a hold-up in finalising the paperwork. Sources are hopeful the signing will be announced before the weekend.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said there were ‘small details’ to address before the club could parade Sancho.


United have four crucial contract decisions to make this summer

There are now less than six weeks left before the summer transfer window closes and Manchester United will need to get a move on if they are to get all their desired business done.

In an ideal world, both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane will be in a position to make their debuts against Leeds United on the opening day of the season and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might even be hoping to parade other additions for the curtain-raiser.

With careful summer spending United know they have the core attributes required to challenge for the Premier League title next season, though much of their success will likely rely on extracting the same world-class performances from those who rose to the challenge over the last campaign.

As such, there is an important task this summer of not only adding new faces to their first-team squad but also securing the long-term futures of a number of key players.

Andreas Pereira has admitted that he would like to return to Lazio this summer.

The Brazilian playmaker spent last season in Rome with the Serie A outfit, making 33 appearances and scoring just once as they finished outside of the Champions League places in sixth.

"Lazio have priority in my heart, but your country has won me over, why not come back one day if the opportunity arises? The fans are the main reason for my passion for Lazio. Even without having them [Lazio fans] at the stadium, I was able to feel their affection in the streets and especially on social networks.

"At Lazio I have always given my best in the time I have been granted. I think my performance could be better if I had more minutes and more freedom to play. When you come in at the end of the game, the task you have to do tactically is not the best."


Patrice Evra slams social media companies after racist abuse of England trio
