Man Utd transfer round-up with two full-backs and teenage striker on radar

Manchester United are focusing on next week’s Europa League final against Villarreal as they seek to end a four-year trophy drought.

Before that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will end their Premier League campaign by hosting Fulham on Tuesday before travelling to Wolves on Sunday.

Just three more points are required for United to secure a top two finish, but they will no doubt be looking to build upon their squad over the summer months.

They have fallen short of a Premier League title challenge and also fell at the group stage in the Champions League, highlighting the need for continued improvement.

With that in mind, here is a look at today’s transfer rumours coming from Old Trafford.

Kieran Trippier has starred for Atletico Madrid since his 2019 switch from Tottenham

United re-ignite Trippier interest

Manchester United are one of three clubs monitoring a summer move for Atletico Madrid full-back Kieran Trippier, report The Athletic.

The England international has thrived at the Spanish club since his 2019 switch from Tottenham and United believe he could provide competition to Aaron Wan-Bissaka and defensive experience, with their admiration of him long-standing.

Paris Saint-Germain and Everton are also said to be in the market for Trippier, who is likely to feature in England’s squad for this summer’s European Championships.

United ask for Sporting star

Sporting Lisbon won their first title in 19 years last week and their teenage left-back Nuno Mendes is attracting attention from English clubs.

Mendes has enjoyed a breakthrough season at the Portuguese giants and is now a member of the senior Portugal international squad, with previous reports linking him to Manchester City.

However, The Sun say United have made an enquiry for the player through his agent Miguel Pinho — who also represents Bruno Fernandes, who swapped Sporting for Old Trafford last year.

The left-back’s transfer valuation of £52million may prove prohibitive, but he appears to be on United’s radar.

Ghanaian considered by United

Edinson Cavani’s new contract at Old Trafford has taken the urgency out of signing a central striker this summer, but the Football Insider say a teenage forward is being considered by the club.

Kamaldeen Sulemana of Danish club FC Nordsjaelland has netted 10 goals in 28 appearances this season, and is also said to be attracting attention from Ajax.

Aged just 19, he has already won two caps for the Ghanaian national team and would fit into United’s model of signing young players with long-term value.
