Manchester United transfer news LIVE United ‘step up’ Andre Onana interest after new Mason Mount bid

Manchester United are now less than three weeks away from their pre-season opener against arch-rivals Leeds United.

The Reds are scheduled to get their pre-season campaign underway against the Championship outfit in Oslo, Norway, on Wednesday, July 12. It will mark the first of seven friendlies that Erik ten Hag’s side will play ahead of their Premier League campaign getting underway on Monday, August 14.

Both Ten Hag and United’s supporters will be hoping that the club will have made progress with their summer recruitment drive by the time pre-season gets underway. It has been a fairly quiet start to the summer for the Reds, who are yet to complete their first signing of the transfer window.

However, United have tabled a second offer for Chelsea ace Mason Mount. The Reds submitted a new and improved offer for the England international yesterday, understood to be worth up to £50million.

Meanwhile, today marks exactly seven months to the day since the Glazers put United up for sale. The situation remains ongoing and is still no closer to being brought to a close.

TODAY’S BIG TALKING POINT: Are United risking paying over the odds for Mason Mount?

United ‘ask to be informed’ of Xavi Simons situation

United have reportedly asked to be kept in the loop regarding the future of Xavi Simons.

The Dutch youngster enjoyed a sensational season with PSV Eindhoven, in which he grabbed 22 goals and notched 12 assists.

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain could buy him back for just €6million next month and that United are also interested in a deal.

It seems certain PSG will take up that chance, but he could then be sold for a quick profit if the right offer comes in.
