Sancho is believed to be United’s top target this summer, but the Red Devils could end up losing out to Premier League rivals Chelsea.

The newly-crowned Champions of Europe, who Sancho supported as a child, are reportedly interested in making a move involving Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Chelsea winger doesn’t seem to have much of a future at Stamford Bridge, and it’s said that Chelsea could be willing to pay ways with him in order to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

Sporting Lisbon left-back Nuno Mendes has been linked with both United and City this summer, and now the defender has opened up on the speculation.

Mendes said “I’m only focused on Sporting, these things I leave with my agent“, Mendes told Portuguese television channel RTP3.

He then added: ““There are things that are true and false [about interest from European clubs], now I’m focused on Sporting and now on the European Championship.“

Donny van de Beek talks

United are set to hold talks with Donny van de Beek over his future at the club this summer after a nightmare debut campaign.

The midfielder has only started four Premier League games since he joined from Ajax in a £40.5m deal last year.

And Van de Beek will apparently hold talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer over his plans for next season.

Manchester United are still very much interested in the 43goals who is also the Champions League golden boot winner striker as they consider double swoop that’ll involve Him and English teammate, Jadon Sancho.

Haaland who was first linked to the English outfits in the winter of 2020 ended up in Germany as United’s chiefs failed to get a deal over the line.

The player has a £75m release clause which is ineffective until next summer but United are reportedly trying to get a deal over the line as he’ll be a cheaper option to Harry Kane.
