Listed: Players Expected To Join, Leave And Stay At Man Utd This Summer

Players Join Leave Man Utd

Manchester United's starting eleven for their first game of the 2019/20 season could look dramatically different.

Daniel James is the leading new face to arrive at Old Trafford this summer while Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera have moved on.

That is only suspected to be the start of a period of significant change. The Red Devils' transfers dominate the sports pages today and are expected to do so all summer.

This weekend's transfer latest involves no fewer than eight players: five new arrivals, if reports are to be believed, two more exits and one talented Spanish goalkeeper sticking around.


At the Daily Mail, the reason the Red Devils believe they can secure the services of Harry Maguire is somewhat disheartening.

The paper claims the Old Trafford guys are confident they can get the English defender in as cross-town rivals Manchester City are not prepared to go beyond £80 million to get the deal done.

One player we are seeing a lot of, in recent weeks, is Giovani Lo Celso.

The Argentine's agents are shopping him about to English clubs and both United and Spurs were said to be interested.

It has been reported by The Independent that the Real Betis attacker will cost £67m and that United are in with a shout, despite his inclination towards a move to Tottenham.

It would seem certain that Aaron Wan-Bissaka, despite all the other players linked, will be at United next term.

The club have long monitored his movements and are in need of a quality right-back.

Diogo Dalot showed signs of promise last term but does not spark a huge amount of confidence.

Sky Sports claim Wan-Bissaka fancies a move to Old Trafford but is not agitating for the switch.

If the Red Devils and Palace can agree a fee – somewhere between £40m and £60m – the deal should be achieved.

When Sean Longstaff was first linked with a summer switch to United from Newcastle United, it seemed like one of those names on a dartboard scenario.

However, a £15m – or £25m, move for the Magpies midfielder has, not for the first time, been reported.

The Star state that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side would like the deal done for Longstaff, who has played about a dozen league games for Newcastle before they set off on their pre-season tour to Australia in early July.

And finally, in a move that would add some attacking spark to United, Bruno Fernandes is said to be in their sights.

The former Sampdoria and Udinese man is fresh off a season of running amok for Sporting Lisbon and helping Portugal to a Nations League trophy.

Sours and Liverpool have both been linked with Fernandes but the Mail have United topping the list of contenders.

So how to make room for the arrival of James and those other chaps?

Marca are reporting that former captain Paul Pogba has already told United that he wants out.

The World Cup winner has his sights set on Real Madrid and Los Blancos are already spraying their money cannon all over Europe.

Pogba would cost in excess of £100m but Zinedine Zidane looks to be convening a crack squad of ballers for next season with the level of focus and intensity that would send Ed Woodward into a cold, prolonged sweat.

Speaking of ballers, Fred could be on his way to Serie A. Roma boss Paulo Fonesca is said to be a fan of the Brazilian, whom he coached when they were together at Shakhtar, according to Metro.


Finally, we get to the last line of defence. David De Gea's United contract lapses next June and his agents want a massive salary bump.

While De Gea finished last season like a bag of nerves, he has been the club's best player by a much distance over the past five seasons.

Jan Oblak has been linked with a move from Atletico Madrid but ESPN claim the Red Devils are set to offer the Spaniard the necessary pay rise to keep him at the club a while longer.
