Manchester United: Varane to join, Sancho to be announced

Manchester United transfer news

In this article, we’ll cover all of today’s Manchester United transfer news.

Varane expected to join United

The news that many Manchester United fans have been waiting for looks to be edging ever closer with Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane very close to securing his move to the club.

The French international has been locked in talks with the club for a number of days now after failing to agree a new deal with Los Blancos.

Spanish outlet El Transistor has said, “Varane is going to Manchester United.”

A rather comprehensive headline leaving little to the imagination.

Jadon Sancho announcement?

Manchester United have already announced that they agreed a deal in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the signing of Jadon Sancho.

However confirmation and reveal of the player’s signing is yet to take place. Manchester United are set to launch their new home kits today and could potentially use their new star to help get sales off to a big start.

Williams loan move off?

Brandon Williams looked set to join Ralph Hasenhuttl at Southampton this summer however a deal is now not looking too likely.

Journalist Alex Crook told TalkSport that the financial demands are too great for the south coast side.

“I told you last week that Brandon Williams was set to join Southampton on loan, I’m now being told that deal could be off due to United’s financial demands both in terms of his wages and the fact they want a very substantial loan fee from Southampton,” said Crook.

“The way it was put to me this morning was that if Southampton agreed to United’s demands, Williams would effectively become their highest paid player. They’re not willing to entertain that at the moment.”

With Ryan Bertrand having left at the end of his current deal, the Saints will be intent on finding a short or long-term replacement at left-back for the upcoming season.
