Fabrizio Romano provides update on Manchester United’s pursuit of three transfer targets

Posted by

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…

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.

Pau Torres is also on Manchester United’s radar

Raphael Varane could be another option for Man Utd to strengthen at the back

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.

  1. I am not convinced by the people handling our transfer business. They are not suitably qualified to do this. Nothing’s changed. Even if Woodward leaves, it will be same old. His stooges follow his template. The Glazers need to employ a DOF with experience. They need to appoint Edwin van der Saar urgently. Murtough has no experience.

  2. David Gill and Martin Edwards would have had the deals done by now . Sancho they are quibbling over 5milion euros they will get that back 3 fold in shirt sales as for the Centre Half get Torres younger and sounds like he wants to come not sure Virane does

  3. I’m not convinced if this guy Torres will be different from lindelof. I see similarities between them. I’ll rather suggest Sergio Ramos cos of his experience and quality. I trust him to provide Stability in that department as Thiago has for Chelsea and show the same leadership qualities Cavani has shown upfront.
