Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd plan late deal for €60m man that makes loan exit make sense

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looking worried, Manchester United

Manchester United have their sights on one more transfer deal before Tuesday’s deadline, while Chelsea’s bid to get Saul Niguez to Stamford Bridge is over, all in the Euro papers.

LATE TRIPPIER DEAL

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may not be finished in the transfer market yet. 

Friday’s shock swoop for former Man Utd striker Cristiano Ronaldo came out of the blue. It also moved quickly with United agreeing a £12.8m deal after Ronaldo asked to leave Juventus.

With Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho already in the bag, you might be forgiven for thinking United were done for the summer window.

However, AS via Sport Witness, are reporting a late return for Kieran Trippier is a distinct possibility.

Arsenal are also keen on the Atletico Madrid player, however, it’s Manchester United who are “above all” leading the chase.

And that could well explain why Solskjaer is happy to let right-back Diogo Dalot leave before the transfer deadline.

Borussia Dortmund are in talks with United over a surprise deal for Dalot, according to a Sky Sports report.

BVB are hoping to arrange a loan deal with an option to buy next summer. That deal would leave Solskjaer with no senior right-back cover for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Haaland set for summer United move?

Manchester United are in “pole position” to sign Dortmund's Erling Haaland next summer, despite Mino Raiola demanding a €50m per-year wage packet for his client

 

That is where England man Trippier could well fit in.

Atletico are determined to keep the former Burnley man who has a €60m release clause or sell him for an above market price.

That would be around €40m, and it remains to be seen whether United will agree to such a deal.
