Man Utd transfer latest as Solskjaer faces Arsenal, Tottenham war after setback

Manchester United officials are making plans for the summer transfer window, with numerous incomings and outgoings looking likely.

Following defeat in the Europa League final, United are still yet to win a trophy with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.

Newly-appointed football director John Murtough is expected to work with vice-chairman Ed Woodward to oversee transfer activity this summer.

The two will work with Solskjaer to help to create a team capable of going one better than last season and challenging for the Premier League title.

A statement signing is reportedly likely, with Jadon Sancho still the club’s top target.

Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are still on the club’s shortlist, but Manchester City are the frontrunners for the Tottenham star, while Borussia Dortmund don’t want to sell their prized asset.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was eager to sign Kieran Trippier, but the defender has reportedly decided to stay in Spain

Trippier deal off

Kieran Trippier has reportedly decided against moving to the Premier League this summer.

United had been the frontrunners to sign the Atletico Madrid right-back as support for Aaron Wan-Bisska, with reports suggesting the defender was eager to return.

But now, reports in Spain suggest he’s got no interest in a return to England.

Instead, Trippier plans to stay at the newly-crowned Spanish champions.

He’s formed a good relationship with Atletico boss Diego Simeone, and seems unwilling to move to United.

Solskjaer will now have to look elsewhere for a back-up right-back if he still wants one brought in before next season.

Who should Manchester United buy this summer? Give us your thoughts in the comments section.

United are set to battle it out with both Arsenal and Tottenham for the services of Zeki Celik.

The Red Devils seem to have identified the Turkey international as an alternative to Trippier, but will face competition to sign him.

The Lille defender shone last season, helping his side win the Ligue 1 title with three goals and two assists.

Celik still has two years to run on his contract, and it’s unlikely he’ll be sold on the cheap.

Arsenal are viewing him as a replacement for Hector Bellerin, and Tottenham could lose Serge Aurier this summer.

United could, however, have the upper hand due to the fact they’ve qualified for the Champions League for next season.

Alex Telles update

Left-back Alex Telles has been heavily linked with a move away from United after a dismal debut season, however the Brazil international has insisted he wants to stay.

Speaking to the club website, the defender insisted he believes he’s proved his ability whenever Solskjaer has called upon him.

He said: “I’m really happy with my first season at United and I’m sure that next season will be even better.

“I think I always took the opportunity to do my best whenever I was on the pitch. I had good games, with the adaptation process the first season isn’t easy, but I believe that when Ole gave me the opportunity and placed his trust in me and put me on the pitch, I did my best.

“I’m sure that I’ll continue doing even better to spend more time on the pitch and get a lot more minutes.”
