MORNING MAN UTD FANS
Prime United target Raphael Varane has had showdown talks with Real Madrid – and Old Trafford chiefs are fighting to keep Paul Pogba.
That’s the stand-out transfer gossip surrounding United, along with claims they will keep Brighton and Leeds target Daniel James.
Varane has reportedly discussed his Real future with boss Carlo Ancelotti as United step up their hunt for the France centre-back
It’s claimed the 28-year-old has already agreed personal terms with Old Trafford officials after being offered ‘astronomical’ wages.
But the size of the transfer fee remains an obstacle as Varane enters the final year of his contract.
Meanwhile United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Pogba has never even hinted to him he wants to leave.
It’s been suggested France midfielder Pogba had rejected a new contract and was close to a £45million switch to PSG.
But Solskjaer said: “The talks are ongoing between Paul’s representatives and the club’s representatives.
“All that I’ve ever heard with Paul is he’s looking forward to the season.
“We’ve seen Paul at his best, Paul knows what we feel about it and I’ve enjoyed my time working with him and hopefully we can continue working together.”
Lastly, Welsh winger James is tipped to stay despite Jadon Sancho’s £73m arrival – partly due to Marcus Rashford’s injury.
