Manchester United are edging closer to securing the services of Jadon Sancho, a player Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted a year ago.

The Englishman is expected to be one of a few first-team stars the Norwegian wants at Old Trafford over the summer. The Premier League giants are looking to add competition for the right-back role in the squad. They hope that the arrival of a new player would push Aaron Wan-Bissaka into a higher gear.

Manchester United are also expected to let a few of their current stars leave as they attempt to streamline their squad ahead of the new season. On that note, let’s have a look at the key Manchester United transfer stories as on 16th June 2021.

Manchester United are impressed by the Englishman’s versatility. Trippier can play at both right-back and right-wing back positions. He was deployed as a left-back in England’s Euro 2020 opener against Croatia.

Tripper has a release clause of £34 million. But the Red Devils are not ready to meet the La Liga side’s valuation of the 30-year-old because he has just one year left in his current contract and also because of his age.
