Fabrizio Romano has tweeted about the latest major Manchester United transfer news as the Red Devils pursue three potential targets.
Man Utd continue to work on signing Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, according to Romano via his official Twitter account, but a centre-back is also one of their main priorities.
As per Romano in his tweet below, Pau Torres and Raphael Varane are the players United are looking at in that area of the pitch…
Manchester United are still working on Sancho deal but will also be focusing on new centre back this summer. ? #MUFC
Raphael Varane, already in the list since months. Man Utd are also aware of a release clause in Pau Torres’ contract [€65m this summer and NOT €50m].

Varane has been a long-term target for United, while Torres is also attracting interest due to a release clause in his Villarreal contract.
Romano insists, however, that his buy-out fee is actually €65million, not the €50m that has been reported in some outlets.
MUFC fans would surely take either of those defensive players as upgrades on the unconvincing duo of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
Despite spending big on Harry Maguire a couple of years ago, the England international has not had the desired impact due to the lack of a top quality partner alongside him.
If United could land Sancho and one of those defenders mentioned, they’d surely be a very different prospect in the title race next season.
