Man Utd news LIVE: All the latest transfer and takeover news from Old Trafford

Must read

Morning Man Utd fans

Man Utd will send young striker Joe Hugill out on loan again next season.

And it’s put old club Sunderland on alert.

Hugill, 19, joined United from the Black Cats in 2020.

And he is currently on loan at Altrincham while still turning out for the Red Devils’ U21s, scoring nine goals in as many matches.

But United think Hugill will develop even further so are looking for the right home.

And Sunderland could take their youth star back this summer.

Man Utd face a battle to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to reports.

FourFourTwo claims Chelsea are huge admirers of the Dutch playmaker.

The report says that the Blues will challenge the Red Devils for de Jong’s signature in the summer.

Man Utd are reportedly closing in on Benfica and Portugal striker Goncalo Ramos.

Reports from his homeland claim United are nearing an £89million deal.

And Ramos himself is in advanced talks over a lucrative contract.

But there is still a chance that PSG hijack the deal after being offered the player by his agent Jorge Mendes.

PSV director Marcel Brands has queried the fee United paid for Antony – comparing Arsenal’s move to Gabriel Jesus.

The Red Devils spent £90million on the winger, while the Gunners spent £45m on Jesus.

Brands said: “If you compare it with transfers that were realistic, such as that of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City to Arsenal: that was also around that rate. Those are normal amounts. I think everyone in football knows that Antony was madness. I think Raphinha is an even better player than Antony, but he left for much less.”

Erik ten Hag has backed Wout Weghorst to start scoring more goals for Man Utd.

Ten Hag said: “He has intelligence. He is often in the right position then he fails — but he still keeps going.

“So he showed great personality and character, not only in this game.

“He could have got his goal early on but he keeps focused, keeps working, keeps putting himself in the right positions and finally he got his reward.”
