Manchester United Transfer News Roundup: Red Devils are closely monitoring Harry Kane situation, club identify Italian midfielder as Paul Pogba replacement, and more – August 2, 2021


Manchester United prepare to return to their glory days under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils have shown steady progress under the Norwegian so far and were very close to getting the silverware last season. The Premier League giants reached the UEFA Europa League final but fell short against Villarreal.

Manchester United are now focused on strengthening their squad over the summer. The Red Devils have already secured the signings of Jadon Sancho, Tom Heaton and Raphael Varane, and are aiming for reinforcements in attack and midfield.

On that note, let’s take a look at the main Manchester United transfer stories from August 2, 2021.


Manchester United are closely monitoring Harry Kane’s situation

Harry KaneHarry kane situation currently unfolding in Tottenham Hotspur, according to L’Express via ESPN. The Englishman was due to join Spurs training on Monday, but did not show up.

Kane reiterated his desire to leave the London squad this summer and is already linked with a move to Manchester City. Tottenham remain disinterested in letting him go, but recent developments have forced many of Kane’s suitors, including the Red Devils, to sit down and take note.

Manchester United may have tied Edinson Cavani for another year, but the chance to secure the services of a striker like Kane is too enticing to pass. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows the Englishman’s arrival will instantly make him Premier League favorites next season.

However, the Red Devils nearly ran out of their transfer budget this summer. Another successful deal might not be possible unless they offload some of their current players.

Pogba’s current deal expires next summer and he has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal. The Red Devils want to keep the Frenchman but are preparing contingency plans if he leaves.

Barella was part of the Italian squad that won Euro 2020. Inter Milan could be forced to sell their star midfielder this summer to sort out their financial woes. Manchester United maintains cordial relations with the Nerazzurri and could consider a move for the 24-year-old if Pogba leaves Old Trafford before the end of the month.
