Frenkie de Jong has ruled out making a summer move to Manchester United, with the Barcelona midfielder producing a 10-point list outlining why he is not interested in the switch.

However, United remain confident that Christian Eriksen will choose them over Brentford. Previously, Bees manager Thomas Frank had revealed that they remain in the hunt for the playmaker.

Arsenal could be ready to make an audacious swoop to sign N'Golo Kante, who was left out of the Blues' squad for their pre-season tour of the United States.

Raphinha is losing patience with Barcelona and has given the Catalan giants 48 hours to agree a deal with Leeds. Chelsea remain interested in the forward as well.

Man Utd have been told by Ajax to increased their Lisandro Martinez offer to €43m if they wish to sign their top defensive target.

Despite plenty of links in recent times, United are said to have failed to submit a bid for Martinez's teammate, Antony, so far this transfer window.

The Red Devils are closing in on the signing Thomas Strakosha on a free transfer following the former Lazio goalkeeper's release.
