Manchester United transfer news: New right-back being targeted

by Sam Peoples

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Reports from Portugal suggest Man United have tabled a €30m bid for SL Benfica’s 18-year-old midfielder Renato Sanches.

We’ve been linked with Sanches all January and regularly send scouts out to Portugal, so has Sanches been the target all along? We’ll know by Monday at 11pm!

Nick Powell is still being heavily linked with a deadline day to Steve Bruce’s Hull City on loan. Powell, 21, probably just simply wants to play football now having been plagued by injuries so a loan to Hull probably sounds like a decent proposition.
We’ll be at Ball Street all day on Monday for a big Deadline Day Social 11-hour live event!! Make sure to get involved here.

Manchester Evening News say that Man United are only considering bringing in a right-back on loan on deadline day to strengthen Louis van Gaal‘s squad, with Matteo Darmian out injured at the moment and both Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia out long-term.

Overall, we’re not expecting too much activity on deadline day but it looks Benfica’s Sanches and a new right-back are the two key areas of focus going into Monday.
