Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Asensio speaks out on links, De Jong bid hope, Pogba’s next club

Erik ten Hag is in the midst of assessing his Manchester United squad with several players already exiting Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard have all left the Red Devils leaving them light of options, especially in the midfield area. That is likely to be the club’s first priority in the transfer market hence links to Frenkie De Jong, who worked with Ten Hag previously at Ajax.

Marco Asensio has also emerged as a target having spoken out about his Real Madrid future just days after winning the Champions League. His contract will soon expire which could strengthen United’s hand. Reinforcements in defence as well as a new forward are on the shortlist.

This is the best place to keep up with the latest news and gossip.

Pogba to Juve

Paul Pogba’s six years at Old Trafford are up – so what next?

Well the World Cup winner could end up back at Juventus, the club he left back in 2016.

The Italian club are confident of securing a three-year deal for the midfielder with Sky Sports reporting they’ve had verbal assurances Pogba will join.

Asensio on his future

Marco Asensio’s future at Real Madrid is unclear with the player’s contract expiring in the summer of 2023.

This is the last chance Los Blancos have to cash in and Asensio is seemingly considering his options.

“I have one more year in my contract yet here we are talking about me leaving Real Madrid. This is an important moment for me, I will not deny it,” he told AS.

“I am more mature and not only on the field, this is an important moment and I will have to make important decisions. Me and my family know that I have to keep growing and moving forward. I want to achieve important things in football and they help me do that.”
