United Keeping Tabs On Danjuma And Others On Their List Radar
United are keeping tabs on Arnaut Danjuma. United are fond admirers of the winger, who has a €45m release clause – but sources appreciate a move is unlikely given how overstocked United are on the left wing.
Arnaut Danjuma was considered as an alternative to Jadon Sancho by mufc last year. United seriously discussed the possibility of signing him but were cautious about moving for a player who was, at the time, playing in the Championship.
Man United want to sign one forward with a preference for another this summer, to offset the exodus of attack-minded players who are out of contract next month, though a right-sided forward would be preferred to balance out their attack.
United’s list of potential signings is long and contains several names, but the interest in especially these four players is concrete: Jurriën Timber, Pau Torres, Frenkie de Jong and Darwin Núñez.
Pau Torres was on Solskjær’s wish list last summer, but that the choice ultimately fell on Raphaël Varane – who was also Solskjær’s first choice. Torres has nevertheless remained a goal for mufc.
According to Dagbladet Sport, Manchester United will in all probability sign a striker this summer – Darwin Núñez is wanted by the club and right now seems to be the ‘hottest alternative.’

Huge Transfer Blow As Barcelona Face Massive Financial Meltdown – Unable To Register Players.
Barcelona need to acquire €500m in four weeks or face financial meltdown. Their free transfers of Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen are on the brink of collapse, and it makes little sense to commit a ton of money towards an injury-prone winger like Ousmane.
The club are facing a major financial roadblock in their pursuit of Marcos Alonso as Chelsea are demanding a considerable transfer fee for the defender.
They won’t change their plans on Christensen and Kessié. Both deals are already agreed and completed on a free transfer – they can’t be registered yet because of Financial Fair Play situation. Both players have received “guarantees” from Barça. Matter of time.
Manchester United have opened talks with Barcelona regarding the purchase of Frenkie de Jong, with the Spanish club’s financial constraints meaning the sale of a midfielder valued at about €85m [£72.4m] could be forced.
Unlikely, the Barcelona board met recently to discuss sale of TV Rights revenues, sale of FCB Merchandise division (49.9%) among other things that will drive up to €500-700m in revenue across a longer period of time. Could be enough to alleviate their problems for short-term.
