Transfer gossip: Manchester United eyeing Championship forward, SPL right-back as Rabiot demands emerge

Date published: Thursday, August 11, 2022, 8:06 a.m. – News Desk

Manchester United sent Darren Fletcher to watch a £40 million winger this week, while the club is competing with Chelsea for a Celtic defender…
Ismaila Sarr is Manchester United’s current striker…
According to the Daily Mail, Darren Fletcher was sent to observe the Watford winger’s performance against West Brom on Monday night, when he scored from inside his own half and missed a second-half penalty in a 1-1 draw.
United and Liverpool have both been linked with Sarr, but no club has yet made a firm offer to the Hornets for their record signing.
The Red Devils are looking for a forward after losing out on Marko Arnautovic, while Cody Gakpo is waiting to see if PSV Eindhoven will play in the Champions League this season. Their qualifying play-off match against Rangers ends on August 24, so don’t expect any clarity on the Holland international for at least a fortnight.

United appeared to be making progress in their pursuit of Adrien Rabiot, but that appears to have come to a halt after they met his mother.
A fee of around £15 million has been agreed upon with Juventus for the France midfielder, but personal terms were always going to be more difficult to agree upon.
The Mirror calculated that Rabiot is asking for a pay increase of around £50,000 per week on top of the £113,000 he earns at Juve.
Rabiot also appears to want a guarantee of Champions League football written into his contract, implying that he and his mother haven’t been paying attention.

Will Manchester United fans be able to #EmptyOldTrafford?

Erik ten Hag would also like a right-back while United are desperately panicking through the last weeks of the window and reports suggest he could go shopping in Scotland.
According to 90min, The Red Devils have joined Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in the hunt for Celtic defender Josip Juranovic.
The Croatia international has signalled his happiness in Glasgow but Celtic’s resolve could be tested if United, Chelsea or Atletico make a firm offer.

Across Manchester, City are also looking for a full-back. And it seems they’ve found one.
The champions are reported to have reached an agreement to take Sergio Gomez from Anderlecht for £11million. But the former Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund defender could be loaned back to the Belgians for the season, still leaving Pep Guardiola short.
The Manchester Evening News reckons City will still look to sign another left-back, regardless of Gomez’s impending arrival.
Sky Sports says Dortmund’s Raphael Guerreiro is ‘one of several potential options’ while they have had conflicting info from their sources over whether Stuttgart’s Borna Sosa is on the list.
