Gareth Southgate ‘surprised’ by number of Hungary fans in closed-doors clash

Manchester United are sure to look considerably different from the side that ended their disastrous campaign at Crystal Palace when they lineup for their first game of next season, as there is expected to be a high turnover of players this summer as part of a huge rebuild at the club.

And three more are set to be on their way out of the club this summer on permanent transfers, of which all are defenders, as Erik ten Hag continues to take no prisoners following his appointment. However, there could soon be some incomings, with two deals said to be ‘close’ to being completed.

Mirror Football takes a look at all the latest transfer stories coming out of Old Trafford…

Torres and Nunez deals ‘close’

Erik ten Hag remains intent on getting the correct transfer business done early this summer following his takeover as manager at Manchester United and according to sources, the Red Devils are reportedly close to sealing deals for Villarreal’s Pau Torres and Benfica’s Darwin Nunez.

GiveMeSport have revealed, as reported by the Express, that sources close to Torres are adamant that a move is ‘close’, which has come just mere days after they revealed that a deal for Nunez was ‘extremely close’, too. Although there are plenty of other clubs in for the pair, United now seem to be leading the way.

United need reinforcements all over the pitch but by bringing in Torres into the defense, it certainly bolsters their shaky backline, while Nunez up front will take the weight off Cristiano Ronaldo ‘s shoulders for scoring goals, as the Uruguayan forward comes in as one of the hottest strikers in Europe last season.

How many signings do you think Erik ten Hag will make this summer? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

Wan-Bissaka ‘offered’ to clubs

Manchester United are prepared to let Aaron Wan-Bissaka leave the club this summer and so much so that they are reportedly ‘offering’ him to other clubs as an attempt to move him on faster and boost their transfer funds, according to the Manchester Evening News .

Wan-Bissaka has been informed that he is not part of Erik ten Hag’s plans next season, who sees Diogo Dalot as his main right-back for now, and the report reveals that the 24-year-old has been offered to ‘at least one club ‘.

His former side, Crystal Palace, have been linked with bringing him back to Selhurst Park and as a result, they may well be the club in question, having initially left the Eagles for a deal rising to £ 50 million back in 2019.

‘Decision made’ on defensive duo

Manchester United are set to allow both Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe to leave the club this summer after the pair have been deemed surplus to requirements under Erik ten Hag ahead of next season, as the Dutchman continues his mass clearout of players in the side.

Bailly featured just seven times in all competitions for the Red Devils this season, while Tuanzebe was sent out on loan to both Aston Villa and Napoli, respectively. He featured 11 times for the Villains, before totalling just two appearances for the Serie A club.

But now both are set to depart Old Trafford this summer, as reported by football journalist Fabrizio Romano, via football365, and will join Juan Mata, Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic and Lee Grant out the exit door this summer, who all left upon the expiry of their current contracts this month.
