Man Utd transfer news and rumours

Updated: November 24th 2023

Casemiro is one of the players being linked with the exit door. Man Utd have slapped a £50 million price tag on the midfielder ahead of January – with Saudi Arabia and PSG touted as potential destinations.

The Brazilian's former Real Madrid teammate Raphael Varane, valued at between £18 million and £26 million, could well follow him out the Old Trafford exit door amid interest from the Saudi Pro League and Bayern Munich.

After his public spat with the Man Utd boss, Jadon Sancho is also expected to depart – either on loan or in a cut-price sale – with Juventus and Borussia Dortmund having made their interest known.

Exactly who will be leading the Red Devils' recruitment remains to be seen but a number of prospective targets have been named.

Among them is teenage midfielder Joao Neves, a potential replacement for Casemiro, but Benfica are believed to be ready to stand firm by his £103 million release clause in January.

PSG right-back Nordi Mukiele is another while Brighton striker Evan Ferguson and Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo continue to be linked.

In-demand Sporting Lisbon centre-back Goncalo Ignacio, Fluminense midfielder Andre, and Wolves winger Pedro Neto are three more than Man Utd are thought to admire – though they could face strong competition for all three.
