Trippier may cost 18 million pounds, Varane transfers “closer every day”, Saul Nigues promotes, Sancho updates
Good morning, UTD fans
Wayne Rooney thinks Jesse Lingard can enter Manchester United’s starting lineup after his striking West Ham loan spell.
Rooney, 35, told Sky Sports: “Jesse is a great player. He did a great job on loan to West Ham United, and sometimes that’s the motivation for you to restart your career.
“He went through a difficult period and he survived.
“The way he survived the difficult situation is to rent and return to playing. He gave himself a good opportunity to return to the Manchester United squad.”
At the same time, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United are taking a hard line against England defender Kieran Trippier.
Solskjaer hopes the former Tottenham Hotspur right-back will provide defensive screens at Old Trafford next season.
Manchester United is ready to pay about 18 million pounds for the 30-year-old former Burnley, but Atletico owner Diego Simeone is not in a hurry to sell.
Therefore, if Old Trafford wants to sign the Bury-born player, they seem to have to raise their offer.
The Spanish champions are still waiting to hear what Trippier wants to do.
If he wants to return to the Premier League after two years in La Liga, he may need to force this problem to be solved.
Finally, Manchester United is getting closer and closer to signing Real Madrid ace Rafael Varane.
According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United is “close every day” to finalize Varane’s deal.
Negotiations have been very fruitful, and the central defender hopes to join the Red Devils this summer.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking for a top defender to contact Harry Maguire behind.
