Manchester United are reportedly weighing up an approach to sign Ben Chilwell from Leicester City as they aim to bolster the left side of the defence.

The 22-year-old, who has also been linked with Manchester City and Chelsea, has made close to 100 appearances for the Foxes since his debut during the 2015/16 season.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are said to hold a keen interest in signing the England international with Luke Shaw yet to establish himself as the first-choice left-back.

Shaw managed to stay injury free for most of the previous season where he was named the club’s Player of the Year but that has not been the case this term.

The former Southampton graduate has already missed nine games this season with a hamstring problem and reports indicate that his time with the club could be coming to an end.

Aside from Chilwell, the Red Devils are also said to hold an interest in compatriot James Maddison and a double swoop could be on the cards next year.

Rice wanted by the Red Devils in January


Manchester United are reportedly planning a £70m bid for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side were linked with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Sean Longstaff during the summer transfer window but they failed to pursue a single midfielder before the deadline.

According to The Mirror, the Red Devils are likely to go on a mid-season spending spree following their slow beginning to the campaign which sees them in the 12th spot.

It is added that a central midfielder remains one of their prime priorities and Rice has been earmarked as the main target ahead of the winter transfer window.

Rice was previously valued at around £50m but reports suggest that the Red Devils may need to offer at least £70m in order to tempt the Hammers into a mid-season sale.

Rice has not missed a single minute of the Hammers’ Premier League campaign this term and he has also emerged into a key performer for the England national side.

United eyeing winter move for Dias?


Manchester United are reportedly planning an approach to sign Benfica’s Ruben Dias when the transfer window reopens in the New Year.

The Red Devils landed the services of Harry Maguire from Leicester City in a deal worth £80m last summer and the Englishman has already cemented his place as a regular at the heart of the defence.

Still, it appears that the club are aiming to add more quality in the central defensive deparment and Record claims that they may come up with an approach for Dias in January.

Dias currently has a £59m release clause on his contract with Benfica but reports have emerged that the Portuguese giants will renew his deal in the coming weeks to increase that value to £79m.

Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe have partnered Maguire in central defence this term and it seems that the Red Devils are still searching for a long-term partner for the England international.

James Maddison news

Maddison on Real radar


Manchester United target James Maddison has reportedly emerged as a surprise transfer option for Real Madrid amid his impressive performances for Leicester City over the past 16 months.

The 22-year-old has been one of the Foxes’ most consistent performers since his move from Norwich City last year and he has already amassed 10 goals and nine assists while operating in the number 10 position.

Over the past few weeks, it has been indicated that United could be the next destination for the England Under-21 international but Marca claims that Los Blancos could come up with a bid of their own for the playmaker.

The 13-time European champions are currently going through a transitional phase and it is claimed that Maddison has been identified as a suitable target for the creative midfield role.

Maddison currently has under four years remaining on his current contract with the Foxes and the east Midlands outfit are bound to demand fees of around £80m for his future sale.

There has recently been speculation that Maddison could leave the Foxes in January but that would come as a surprise, given the club have generally declined to do business at the midway stage of a campaign.

Jesse Lingard news

Lingard out of Magpies clash


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard won’t take any part against Newcastle United after picking up a hamstring injury.

The England international came on for the final 15 minutes of the Europa League clash against AZ Alkmaar last night but he could not finish the game after pulling up with a hamstring concern in stoppage time.

In the post-match press conference, Solskjaer confirmed that Lingard has indeed suffered an injury setback and he won’t be available until after the international break.

“He tweaked his hamstring so he didn’t feel like he could risk it, but hopefully it’s not too bad. Probably not Newcastle, but he should be ready for Liverpool,” he was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.

Aside from Lingard, Solskjaer provided an update on Paul Pogba by stating that the French midfielder is unlikely to return from an ankle problem for the trip to St James’ Park.

Manchester United are currently languishing in the 10th spot in the league table and have accumulated just nine points. They will face the Magpies on Sunday in the search for their first away win since March.

Jadon Sancho to reject future Manchester United move?

Jadon Sancho to reject future Manchester United move?


Jadon Sancho news

Sancho’s advisors have second thoughts over Man United move


The representatives of Jadon Sancho are far from convinced that Jadon Sancho can benefit from a move to Manchester United in the future.

The England international has been a revelation since his move to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester City in 2017, and he has already amassed 15 goals and 18 assists in the past 18 months.

Earlier this summer, Sancho had been the subject of concrete interest from the Red Devils but Dortmund made it clear that the teenager would not be sold at any price.

According to The Mail, there is now a strong feeling from the player’s entourage that the 19-year-old won’t benefit from a move to Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side have struggled in the Premier League during the opening seven games and they are currently placed 10th on the table with just nine points registered.

This is their worst-ever points tally in the Premier League era after seven matches and the pressure will no doubt raise on Solskjaer, should the current run of form extend.

Manchester United suffer fresh injury blow for Arsenal clash

Wan-Bissaka out of Arsenal game?


Manchester United have received an unexpected injury blow with Aaron Wan-Bissaka unlikely to participate in tonight’s Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The England international has been ever-present for the Red Devils this season and he has missed just one game in the Europa League against Astana, where he was rested.

However, in the lead up to the Gunners clash, he seems to have suffered a mystery injury and that is expected to see him sidelined for the Premier League encounter, The Mirror reports.

Aside from Wan-Bissaka, Diogo Dalot is also unavailable for the game with a knock and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may go with either Axel Tuanzebe or Ashley Young on the right side of the defence.

Meanwhile, there are some positives on the injury front with Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford tipped to make the matchday squad after passing late fitness tests.

United are presently four points behind the final Champions League spot and Solskjaer will be hoping for a positive result against the Gunners, who are one of their top four rivals.

Solskjaer drops injury update ahead of Arsenal game


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that the club won’t be able to bank upon three first-team players ahead of the Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The Red Devils have struggled to find the net on a regular basis since the 4-0 triumph over Chelsea in the season opener and they recently needed a penalty shoot to beat Rochdale in the third round of the League Cup after the scores were tied at 1-1 in normal time.

Speaking to MUTV, Solskjaer has confirmed that both Diogo Dalot and Angel Gomes have suffered knocks over the past week and they are unlikely to feature against the Gunners on Monday night.

He added that Marcus Rashford is likewise expected to miss the game with a groin injury but the England international could return to action before next month’s international break.

United have bagged just six goals from the past seven games across all competitions. They have struggled to find a regular striker leading the line with Rashford and Anthony Martial picking up injuries.

Zorc denies United talks for Sancho
Football Transfer Centre


Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has clarified that Manchester United were nowhere close to signing Jadon Sancho during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils were linked with a potential club-record move for the England international last summer with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aiming to strengthen the squad with younger players with pedigree.

However, no agreement was reached between the clubs for the highly-rated winger and Zorc has now confirmed that his team refused to hold a meeting with the Red Devils for Sancho.

“Not close at all. We didn’t talk to them. They were asking us for a meeting. Sancho is not for sale,” he was quoted as saying by Viasport.

Sancho has been a revelation for Dortmund over the past 18 months and he has started the current campaign in fine form with two goals and four assists from just four league appearances.

He has also excelled with the England national side and recently bagged his first two goals for the Three Lions during the 5-3 triumph over Kosovo in a Euro 2020 qualifier.

Wilson to Manchester United?


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly keen on recruiting the services of Callum Wilson from Bournemouth this winter.

The 27-year-old has become a vital figure for the Cherries after overcoming his regular injury concerns and he has made 26 goalscoring contributions since the start of the previous season.

According to The Sun, Solskjaer is keen to continue with the trend of pursuing young and hungry British players and Wilson has emerged as a potential target for the winter transfer window.

United currently have Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as the only senior striking options following the departure of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan – the latter on a season-long loan.

Martial has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a thigh problem and this has practically left Solskjaer with just Marcus Rashford to depend upon for the centre-forward duties.

United graduate Mason Greenwood has been regularly talked up for a starting role but so far, Solskjaer has resisted the temptation of utilising the teenager from the beginning.
