Man Utd transfer news LIVE: £55m Evanilson bid, Christian Eriksen instruction and Frenkie de Jong deadline

Manchester United are yet to make inroads in the summer transfer window, but that has not stopped the rumours and updates of offers and targets coming thick and fast.

Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong is the priority option for Erik ten Hag, who worked with the 25-year-old at Ajax and knows what he could offer his side. In a more-advanced role, Christian Eriksen is firmly on the Red Devils’ radar after excelling during the second half of last season on loan at Brentford.

Elsewhere, Ten Hag is believed to be targeting a new striker, while a number of defenders are linked with a move to Old Trafford. Keep it right here for all the latest Manchester United transfer news.

Eriksen another target

Christian Eriksen is another player who Ten Hag wants to have settled into his side over the next few weeks, as De Telegraaf journalist Marcel van der Kraan affirmed how important the United manager’s first two signings are.

“Erik ten Hag doesn’t want any other players apart from those two first [De Jong and Eriksen],” Van der Kraan declared on Sky Sports.

“Ten Hag says he’s seen the style of Barcelona and Ajax – if you want to play a certain attacking style, then you need Frenkie.”

De Jong deadline

The Red Devils find themselves in a race against time to complete the signing of Erik ten Hag’s top target, Frenkie de Jong. United are keen to wrap up negotiations before the squad fly out to Bangkok to begin their pre-season tour on Friday, July 8.
The Telegraph reports that the 25-year-old is central to the new Red Devils boss’ plans to implement a new style of play over the summer, as Ten Hag views De Jong as the future linchpin of his team.
If a deal isn’t done by then, the Dutch tactician would find himself in an unfathomable position during pre-season training, unable to build around the playmaker.
