Manchester United transfer news LIVE Man Utd fixture news plus Goncalo Ramos and Griezmann latest

Today is the second day of the international break as members of Manchester United’s first team link up with their respective national sides.

Countries have named their squads for this month’s matches that will take place over the next two weeks, before club action for United and City resumes with a mouth-watering Manchester derby on October 2.

Erik ten Hag will lead his United side out at the Etihad Stadium for his first experience of the derby, after the international break concludes later this month.

United will have 19 players taking part in either the UEFA Nations League or international friendlies, with Scott McTominay likely being the first Red involved for their country when Scotland play Ukraine this Wednesday.

Eyes may well also be on Raphael Varane’s time with the French squad, after United were recently linked with a move for not only Antoine Griezmann, but also Benjamin Pavard – who recently refused to rule out a move to Old Trafford in the future.

Why Malacia apologised to Fernandes after Leicester victory

United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has admitted that was apologised to by Tyrell Malacia after the pair were exchanged in a small altercation against Leicester City earlier this month.

However, the Portuguese ace has since admitted that Malacia apologised to him at the end of the game.


Bryan Robson lifts lid on Bellingham transfer meeting with Cantona and Ferguson

United legend Bryan Robson has lifted the lid on United’s pursuit of Jude Bellingham two years ago and the transfer meeting held with the youngster and his family.

“Unfortunately for us he decided to move to Germany. We thought we more or less had him,” he told The Sun.

“Myself, Sir Alex and Eric Cantona all met him with his mum and dad at Carrington and after that meeting we thought he was coming to us.

“Now there is talk about him moving next summer and you see Liverpool mentioned a lot.

“We thought we had him and he would have been a great signing for us. But he definitely has it in him to become a great player for England.”


United ‘hopeful’ of having Rashford back for Man City clash

United are hopeful of having Marcus Rashford fit again for the derby against Man City next week, according to ESPN.

Rashford has missed the last two games after picking up a muscle injury in the victory over Arsenal, but the report claims club staff do not believe the injury is serious and he should be back in time for the next match.


Fernandes gives verdict on Ten Hag at United

Bruno Fernandes spoke to The Athletic in a lengthy interview.

This is what he has had to say about Erik ten Hag.

“First of all, he has an idea,” Fernandes says. “He has a style. You have to follow his rules. He is strict on that. And I like that. He has brought discipline, which is something I think we missed in the past. Everyone must be on the same page.

“That is what Pep (Guardiola) and (Jurgen) Klopp have been doing for years, because they have stability in the club and in the way they choose the transfer market and build the team, which is really important for them to get the rewards.

“I saw the manager say in a press conference that we do not want to bring players just for the sake of it, we want to bring the right players for what we want to do. It is something the club needs.

“We still have a margin to improve and he needs time to get the most out of us with his idea of playing. I believe we will get to the point with him where we are established as a team and everyone is on the same page.”


United ‘consider’ move for Griezmann

United’s desire to sign a new forward could see them revive interest in Antoine Griezmann next year.

The Athletic focus on his uncertain future at Atletico Madrid and mention United’s previous interest in the France international.

They also suggest United would consider a move for Griezmann next year if he ends up moving.


Pavard makes transfer admission amid United links

United will look to sign a new right-back next year and Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard is one of those being linked.

Speaking while away on international duty with France, the World Cup winner has told Telefoot he was aware of transfer interest this summer, but decided this was not the right moment in his career to leave Bayern.

He said: “I had calls from different clubs with my agent. Afterwards, I had the Bayern coach with whom we spoke and with whom we have a good relationship. He made me understand that I was in his plans, that I was important for the team.

“Maybe one day I will go to one of these clubs, you never know what the future holds. I’m still [at] Bayern Munich. Afterwards, we have time.”


United ‘plan’ £25m bid Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos

United are still keen to sign a new striker after failing to get one in the summer.

The Sun say Benfica striker Goncalo Ramos is the name being considered now and that he could be available for a bargain fee next year.

It is suggested he has a £100m release clause in his current deal, but the Portuguese giants reportedly value him at £25m.

Ramos, 21, has scored eight goals in 12 games this season.


Arnold ‘disagrees’ with Ten Hag on transfer policy

United are already planning for the next transfer window, but are reportedly split on their policy for it.
