    With the Harry Kane deal seeming a non-starter, the Dutch manager is keen to add firepower to his squad.

    Red Devils yet to register formal interest

    Despite being constantly linked with Inter Milan keeper Andre Onana, the club have yet to register their interest in Italy.

    With Chelsea also interested in the player, United may need to make a move sooner rather than later.

    It seems as though the club are waiting to find out the stance of current number one, David de Gea, before making their move.

    Agent Eriksen working his international magic

    While the midfielder is on international duty with the Atalanta striker, he will be no doubt doing all he can to persuade the player to join him at Old Trafford.

    United trigger contract extension

    Man Utd have extended goalkeeper Tom Heaton's contract by an extra year, with his current deal expiring at the end of the month.

    However, Heaton wants game time and with Luton Town and Hull City showing interest, there is no guarantee that he will be at Old Trafford at the start of the season.

    Having only made two appearances during his time at the club, it may be time for the player to go elsewhere if he wants first team football.

    United need to groom Casemiro successor

    Arsenal's attempts to secure the services of Declan Rice has shown the Red Devils why they should be following Man City's approach to replacing their Brazilian defensive midfielder.

    With Casemiro the wrong side of 30, they need to consider the long term in that position.

    When City were in a similar position with Fernandinho, they brought in Rodri and slowly integrated him into the squad and then team, making the transition seamless.

    Otherwise, they may be left in the position The Gunners are in, having to pay big money and having all their eggs in one basket in the transfer window.

    Denmark coach offers advice to star

    Ekstra Bladet, the Denmark first team coach has been speaking about the career of Christian Eriksen and how the player can prolong his career:

    Christian can play for many more years, but it will be in a role a little longer back on the field. Christian will play in a slightly more withdrawn role with slightly more passes. And it really suits his game, because Christian is good at creating flow in the game and dictating the tempo of matches. I think that in the coming years, Christian can become even stronger and set the tone in that position. It also suits Christian’s game, we see him in that role because he is so game-intelligent.

    Morning, United fans

    Bayern Munich could beat United to Kim Min-Jae – but the Red Devils might usurp Chelsea over Andre Onana.

    And with more talk of Sheikh Jassim taking over the club, there's speculation of bids for PSG strike stars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

    Bayern are said to be nearing an agreement for Napoli's Kim.

    The South Korean has been United's top defensive target for the past two transfer windows.

    But it appears the Bundesliga champions have leapfrogged the Red Devils by racing advanced talks over signing the 26-year-old.

    United are tipped to step up their hunt for a new keeper – with Inter Milan's Onana now rated a leading contender along with Brentford star David Raya.

    But it's thought David de Gea will still stay to fight for the No1 Spot.

    Chelsea are waiting to see if United up their £40million bid for Mason Mount.

    And the Blues look set to end any hopes the Red Devils had of winning the race for Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo.

    The report states negotiations between Man Utd and Tottenham are "not advancing at all" and that Erik ten Hag's men believe Spurs "never wanted to sell Kane to them".

    United are also unwilling to become embroiled in a "two-month saga".

    Nwaneri expected to leave Arsenal for Prem rivals

    Arsenal prodigy Ethan Nwaneri is in danger of being poached by Premier League rivals, according to reports.

    The attacking midfielder made history for the Gunners when he made his Premier League debut last September.

    Aged just 15 years and 181 days, he became the league's youngest ever player in his short cameo against Brentford.

    But fast forward to June and his Emirates future is now far from certain.

    According to The Athletic, there are "serious doubts" Nwaneri will sign a new deal at Arsenal.

    His schoolboy registration with the Gunners ends this month, and three Prem rivals are competing for his services.

    Chelsea, who previously poached Omari Hutchinson from the North London outfit, are one of the main parties interested.

    Manchester City are said to be very keen too, while Manchester United are also reportedly in the race.

    United 'to HIJACK' Onana transfer

    Chelsea could reportedly see their move for Inter Milan keeper Andre Onana HIJACKED as Manchester United enter the transfer race.

    The Blues are in the market for a new stopper as ex-Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino prepares for his reign at Stamford Bridge.

    And Cameroonian Onana has emerged as Chelsea's No1 target between the posts.

    But, according to The Guardian, they face competition from United who are looking for someone to rival David de Gea.

    The Spaniard suffered dips in form last season but he looks set to sign a new deal on the contract which expires this month.

    Everton's Jordan Pickford is among the other names linked with United.
