West Ham United keeping tabs with Man United attacker
West Ham United are reportedly planning a late £15m transfer offer for Man United winger Jesse Lingard, according to Sportsmole. The 28-year-old forward shone on loan with the Irons in the second half of last campaign, and it’s little shock that David Moyes looks keen to have him back in a permanent deal.
The Hammers are now hoping to add Jesse in a cut-price £15m deal, despite recently being quoted £25m for the forward.
Some Man United supporters may be disappointed that England international looks to stay a fringe footballer at Theatre of Dreams, as the winger showed his class at West Ham United last campaign when he was arguably one of the most in-form footballers in the Premier League for a few months.
Red Devils have many other attacking options, though, so the Norwegian boss might struggle to find room for the Englishman, even if there is a case for giving him more game time than someone like Anthony Martial or Daniel James.
Man United leading race to sign La Liga right-back
Man United are reportedly preparing a late offer to beat Arsenal to the signing of €40m Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier.
The 30-year-old right-back has long been linked with Man United, but Arsenal also recently stepped up their interest in bringing the defender back to the Premier League.
Still, it’s widely known that Kieran himself would rather move to Man United than Arsenal, so it look the Red Devils are now moving into pole position to get this done.
Man United are preparing a late offer to meet England international’s asking price as an agreement now surely edges closer to completion, with personal terms not expected to be a problem.
Red Devils could do with the Englishman as a more attacking option at right-back, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka more suited to a defensive role. Diogo Dalot could be leaving Man United, however, so Kieran looks perfect to come in and fill that role.
Leeds United interested in signing Man United forward
It seems like Daniel James’ time at Man United is rapidly coming to an end. Wales international has done his best to impress the Norwegian manager and his staff, and the exuberance and desire he displays when pulling on the red shirt is laudable.
However, he’ll never be a regular for the Red Devils, and to that end, Man United have made him available for transfer.
Despite playing 33 Premier League games in the campaign in which James signed (2019/20), scoring three and assisting six times, his value to the club has tailed off significantly since then.
Leeds United, who almost signed Daniel from Swansea a couple of seasons ago, are aware of his availability, along with several other possible suitors.
