Man United Transfer News The Future Of Paul Pogba Will Have An Impact On Any Replacement Arrivals With The Club Currently Looking For A New Midfielder

The future of Paul Pogba is thought to be a significant element in determining how many further signings Manchester United can make this summer, despite their desire to bring in another midfielder.
United have been active in the transfer market ahead of the upcoming Premier League season, with Jadon Sancho joining for PS73 million and Raphael Varane joining for PS41 million.
But, their extravagant spending may come to an end, since the club is thought to have concluded the most of their business.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, on the other hand, is still looking to add another midfielder to his squad, with a number of individuals being considered.
0:29 Terry Gibson, a Spanish football specialist, weighs in on Manchester United’s pursuit of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane. The Europa League finalists have also scouted Eduardo Camavinga of Rennes and Leon Goretzka of Bayern Munich.
Camavinga, on the other hand, is thought to favor a move to Spain, while United is concerned that Goretzka may be exploiting them to secure a better contract at Bayern Munich.
United have also been keeping an eye on Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez, who has piqued Barcelona’s interest.
United has also been connected with Declan Rice, but it is known that they have no ambitions to sign the England international, and West Ham will not let him leave this summer.
Should Pogba leave United this summer, the club’s desire to buy a new midfielder will only grow.
The France international’s contract at United expires in a year, and while the club seems in talks with his representatives, it is doubtful that Pogba will sign a new term as things stand.
Paris Saint-Germain is interested in signing the 28-year-old and is likely to make a formal offer this summer.
Although though United’s summer business isn’t yet done, it’s clear that they’ve tried to complete the majority of their signings before the start of the new Premier League season.
Last summer, Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles arrived on Deadline Day, while Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo were also late additions in January.
0:34 Kieran Trippier wants to stay at Atletico Madrid, but would find it difficult to reject down a bid from Manchester United, according to Spanish football analyst Alvaro Montero. The relationship between Solskjaer, leaving executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, and newly-appointed director of football John Murtough is considered vital to the greater cohesion seen at the club over t The relationship between Solskjaer, outgoing executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, and recently-
While United has recruited well so far this summer, they are not immune to the financial impact of Covid-19, and the club has accepted that they will not be able to fill every position they desire.
United are also willing to let a few marginal players go to free up funds, with James Garner, Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira, and Facundo Pellistri among those who could leave.
If Pellistri does depart, it will almost certainly be on loan, as he is regarded as a future prospect.
Axel Tuanzebe might join him, however United want him to sign a new contract before any potential loan exit.
Jesse Lingard’s future at Old Trafford is also in doubt.
While Solskjaer stated earlier this month that the midfielder is still “in my plans,” West Ham are still keen in bringing him back to the London Stadium after his impressive loan stay in the second part of last season.
Manchester United fans are justifiably ecstatic about Raphael Varane’s impending arrival from Real Madrid, even though Sir Alex Ferguson could have brought the Frenchman to Old Trafford for less than PS40 million a decade ago.
1:09 Spanish football expert Alvaro Montero tells Sky Sports News that Raphael Varane is ‘ideal’ for the Premier League ahead of his projected move to Manchester United. A teenage Varane was starting to catch people’s attention in what was his debut season with Lens in 2010/11, including that of United’s then-French scout David Friio, who became a regular attendance during the player’s final few months with Lens.
Varane, who was only 18 at the time, may not have been able to prevent Lens from Ligue 1 relegation that season, but Ferguson, who recognized a future world star when he saw one, was unconcerned.
Unfortunately for the Scot, he wasn’t the only one eyeing Varane, and when the United manager was on his way to northern France to sign the centre-back, Real Madrid’s new special adviser learned of the meeting and promptly intervened.
Varane ended up in Madrid, not Manchester, that summer, thanks to a phone call from Zinedine Zidane, who instead bought Phil Jones from Blackburn Rovers for PS16.5 million.
