Manchester United and their fellow Premier League clubs will be able to restart their recruitment drives in around three weeks as Erik ten Hag continues to rebuild his squad.

Manchester United and their fellow Premier League clubs will be able to restart their recruitment drives in around three weeks as Erik ten Hag continues to rebuild his squad.

After being appointed this summer, Ten Hag welcomed Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, Lisandro Martinez, Antony and Casemiro to Old Trafford on permanent deals. Martin Dubravka was also signed on loan.

But how many will follow them in the mid-season window? Cody Gakpo, Frenkie de Jong and Jude Bellingham are the names doing the rounds, along with Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos.

England stars Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford are back in the UK after their World Cup charge.

Maguire and Shaw both started all five matches in Qatar as the Three Lions coasted through to the last eight, while Rashford also made his mark with three goals at the tournament. However, there was to be no trophy at the end as France, Croatia, Morocco and Argentina continue to battle for international glory.

Liverpool have reportedly agreed terms to sign Argentina star Enzo Fernandez next summer.

That’s according to La Capital, which says the Benfica midfielder has been tied up quickly by Jurgen Klopp to stop potential future bids from United, who were being linked.

Fernandez has enjoyed a stellar World Cup with his country by reaching the semi-finals after helping his club side remain unbeaten in all competitions before the break.

United have a prodigious conductor in Kobbie Mainoo.

The 17-year-old started in three of the United’s Under-21s previous four ties and has already ensured his breakthrough year has ended on a high, scoring an equaliser for the first-team against Cadiz last week.

Mainoo also acquitted himself well in the second-half against Real Betis on Saturday. Should Mainoo not stride out against Bolton Wanderers in the EFL trophy this evening, the consolation could be involvement against Burnley in the League Cup next week.

A report from 90min claims Chelsea have contacted the representatives of Borussia Dortmund striker Youssoufa Moukoko.

The 18-year-old has six goals and four assists in 14 Bundesliga games this season with United said to be keeping tabs on the teenager.

However, Chelsea are hoping to get their hand in first and have already opened talks with Barcelona also in hot pursuit.

Dortmund are thought to be making efforts to keeping hold of the attacker.

PSV chief Marcel Brands has opened up about Cody Gakpo’s potential exit.

United have been frequently linked with the forward, who has made 30 goal contributions at club level already this season.

Brands hinted that an exit could be on the cards but a January switch may be unlikely unless his club recieves a record fee.

United and other potential suitors have been told by AC Milan what it will cost to buy Rafael Leao.

Interest in the attacker grew further during the World Cup as the 23-year-old netted twice in five outings for Portugal.

United are not thought to have registered concrete interest yet despite numerous links with Leao, who has netted eight times in 20 games for his club so far this season.

Two summer signings are among the quad of players who have earned the praise of Roy Keane this season.

The former Reds captain is known for his high bar of standards and isn’t afraid to deal out criticism when he feels it’s warranted.

However, four players have recieved positive comments from Keane for their efforts so far.

Robin van Persie is back at Manchester United this week as he continues to work on his coaching badges.

Van Persie and United manager Erik ten Hag dined at Chinese restaurant Tattu in Spinningfields, along with their agent Kees Vos, on Monday night.

Zidane Iqbal says he looked up to Angel Gomes and Paul Scholes when he was coming up through the youth ranks at the club.

Erik ten Hag is reportedly pushing United to sign Denzel Dumfries next year.

United are actively looking to add a new right-back to their squad, and it is suggested that the Dutch international is the manager’s top choice.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag insists the club is prepared for the challenge of mentally managing players who return from the World Cup.

England trio Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford, Portugal duo Diogo Dalot, Bruno Fernandes and Brazilians Casemiro, Fred and Antony all suffered deflating eliminations at the quarter-final stage last week.

United will look to sign a new right-back next year and are reported to be keeping tabs on Malo Gusto.

The 19-year-old Lyon defender is the latest player to be linked with a move to Old Trafford as Erik ten Hag looks to strengthen the position.

Joao Felix is set to leave Atletico Madrid next year, and a move to the Premier League could well be on the cards.

Spanish outlet Marca reports that Arsenal have moved ahead of Chelsea and United in the race to sign the Portuguese forward next month.

However, they say that a deal for the forward will cost in the region of £86 million.

Erik ten Hag has challenged Harry Maguire to replicate his England form for Manchester United.

Maguire has only started three Premier League games this season but excelled again for England at a tournament during their World Cup campaign.

It was another night to remember for United loanee Amad.

He gave Sunderland the lead from the spot in their 2-1 home loss to West Brom.

The Ivorian now has five goals in his last seven Championship matches.

United are up for sale, but the asking price for the club could be an issue for many prospective buyers.

The Mail issues an update on a possible takeover at Old Trafford and warns that the Glazers’ asking price of about £7bn is believed to be unrealistic by industry experts.

Erik ten Hag has indicated United will extend the contracts of the five players approaching the last six months of their agreements. David de Gea, Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw, Fred and England striker Marcus Rashford are technically out of contract next summer, but the club do hold the option to extend all of their deals by a further year.

Erik ten Hag wants to sign Ferland Mendy from Real Madrid – according to reports.

Despite having England defender Luke Shaw at the club, Ten Hag went back to the Eredivisie this summer to sign Tyrell Malacia and bolster his left-back options. But is another move on the cards in that very same position?

Reports from Spanish publication Defensa Central credit United and Chelsea with interest in the 27-year-old and he appears to be deemed surplus to requirements. Mendy was also omitted from the World Cup squad by Didier Deschamps.
