Manchester United appear to have finally gotten busy in the transfer window on deadline day. The Red Devils had so far managed to sign only Donny van de Beek from Ajax while Alexis Sanchez left for Inter Milan.
Here is the latest from Old Trafford on deadline day.
Manchester United close to securing a loan move for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele
Manchester United are close to securing a loan deal for French winger Ousmane Dembele, according to Catalan journalist Gerard Romero. The Red Devils have reportedly offered a loan fee and will pay the 23-year-old's wages.
Barcelona are conducive to the idea as the club are well stacked in wide areas after the arrival of Trincao and the emergence of Ansu Fati. Speaking after the game against Sevilla, Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman commented on Dembele's future:
"What is certain in the world? I don't know. At the moment, he's a Barcelona player. There's still one day left for incomings and outgoings. We'll see. I opted for (Francisco) Trincao, Pedri and (Miralem) Pjanic (off the bench). We needed more control, and that's why I made these changes."
Manchester United make an enquiry for Ismaila Sarr
Manchester United have offered a loan deal to Watford for Ismaila Sarr, with an option to buy the player for £45 million. The Championship side are looking to sell the winger and are proposing a £20 million fee if the 20-time league champions refuse to take up the option of buying the winger.
Manchester United complete signing of Amad Traore
Manchester United have completed the signing of Amad Traore for €30m (£27.2m) plus add-ons, according to the Guardian. The left-footed right-winger is expected to join the club in January due to work permit-related issues.
The Red Devils have also been linked with Uruguyan wonderkid Facundo Pellistri and want to complete a deal for the player before the transfer window closes.
Chris Smalling likely to remain at Manchester United
AS Roma and Manchester United have failed to agree on a fee for English defender Chris Smalling.
The 30-year-old was brilliant on loan at Rome last season, but the Serie A giants are looking at Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea on loan.
Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani arrive at Carrington to complete transfer
Porto left-back Alex Telles and free agent Edinson Cavani have arrived at Manchester United's Carrington training ground to complete a transfer to the Premier League club.
Edinson Cavani is expected to sign a two-year contract and the Brazilian Alex Telles will sign a four-year contract with an option for an additional year.Published 05 Oct 2020, 21:27 IST
