Manchester United transfer news
In this article we will bring you all of today’s Manchester United transfer news. Make sure to check back tomorrow for more updates.
Raphael Varane update
For some time now Manchester United have found themselves linked with a move for Raphael Varane.
It was even claimed as far back as April that talks with the Frenchman were advanced.
But we have still yet to see United complete a move for the defender. A report earlier this week claimed that a contractual agreement between the player and United was almost reached, but no offer had yet been made to Real Madrid:
🔴 Agreement almost contractually reached between #Manchester United and Raphaël #Varane . Discussions are advanced between the 2 parties. After buckling Sancho, Man United want #Varane . Discussions are open between Manchester and Real Madrid but no offer yet.

Now, Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on the situation, confirming that Man United are preparing the official bid to Madrid for Varane:

Man Utd made him a contract proposal until 2026. Varane wants a Premier League experience – he’d accept if/when Real and Man Utd will reach an agreement. https://t.co/cu03BGA2jQ

Trippier wants United move
Like Varane, Kieran Trippier has seen himself linked with Man United for a while now.
It was even suggested in early June that the full-back was house hunting in England.

Now, the Manchester Evening News are reporting that Trippier is optimistic about joining Man United before the summer window closes.
Mourinho wants Telles
Elsewhere, it appears former Man United boss Jose Mourinho has been eyeing up Alex Telles.
The Brazilian had something of a bit-part role at United last season, so him moving on would not seem like the strangest move.
Now though, it is being reported that Man United have blocked Roma from signing the left-back on loan.
