Morning, United fans
Ralf Rangnick is tipped to chase a defensive midfielder and right-back this month – with Tariq Lamptey and Amadou Haidara high on his wishlist.
Anchormen Scott McTominay and Fred have come under fire ahead of Saturday evening’s Prem trip to Aston Villa.
And United reportedly share Newcastle’s interest in RB Leipzig ace Haidara .
Borussia Monchengladbach‘s Denis Zakaria, long linked with Arsenal, is thought to be on the Red Devils’ radar too.
The Swiss 25-year-old could be available for just £5million.
And Wolves’ Portugal star Ruben Neves, 24, is also thought to be attracting interest from Old Trafford interim boss Rangnick – despite being rated at £35m.
Lamptey, 21, is rated as a possible recruit to compete with Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
But United value the ex-Chelsea right-back £10million short of Brighton’s £40m asking price.
Lamptey’s current deal runs until until 2025, meaning the Seagulls are under no pressure to sell the Tottenham target.
Finally, Old Trafford legend Paul Scholes claims United ‘feels poisonous’ at the moment.
The former England midfielder worries that might affect their ability to bring in a top-class manager next season, as well as proven players now or in the summer.
He said: “Who wants to come into this club? It feels like a right mess. It does feel poisonous.”
