Man Utd news LIVE updates: All the latest news and transfer gossip from Old Trafford

Monday, April 27

  • Borussia Dortmund are ‘totally relaxed’ about Jadon Sancho
  • Omari Forson will commit his future to Manchester United
  • The Red Devils could still sign Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa
  • Liverpool are in talks with Man Utd target Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen to Liverpool

Liverpool are looking to sign Lille striker Victor Osimhen.

That’s according to French publication Le10sport, who claim the Premier League leaders have opened discussions with Osimhen’s representatives.

It’s believed Jurgen Klopp’s side are ‘laying the foundations’ for an opening contract proposal that could see the eight-capped Nigeria international arrive at Anfield this summer.

Le10sport also suggest Manchester United and Chelsea are set to battle it out for the 21-year-old forward, who is expected to cost around £70million.

Jadon Sancho latest

Borussia Dortmund are ‘totally relaxed’ about the situation surrounding Manchester United target Jadon Sancho.

Sancho, who is reportedly valued at £120million, is at the top of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward’s wishlist in the upcoming transfer window.

But Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc insists there has been no developments.

“There is no new status,” Zorc told Sport1. “At the moment, all clubs are running on sight – even in England! I can’t and don’t want to go too far out of the window with forecasts because the situation is changing daily.

“We will see what happens. We have a long-term contract with Jadon Sancho. This will not change now. We are totally relaxed about it.”

Federico Chiesa pursuit

Manchester United are still in with a shout of signing Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa.

Chiesa, 22, is expected to leave Fiorentina after four profitable seasons and Juventus are considered the leading contenders to secure his signature.

United, Chelsea and Inter Milan are also thought to be interested in the Italy international, who has scored 29 goals and provided 20 assists in 139 appearances for Fiorentina.

Gazzetta dello Sport via Sport Witness suggest the player and his family are eager to stay in Italy but a lucrative contract offer from the Red Devils could force the winger to ‘rethink’ his next destination.

Willian to Arsenal

Arsenal are favourites to sign Chelsea star Willian.

Willian, 31, is expected to leave Stamford Bridge when his contract expires in June having scored 59 goals and provided 59 assists in 329 appearances for the club.

The Brazil international is unlikely to sign an extension with the club and will become a free agent.

There’s plenty of interest in the attacking star with Barcelona, Corinthians, Liverpool and Arsenal all looking to secure his signature.

And ESPN commentator Jorge Nicola thinks the latter are the most likely destination.
