Man Utd transfer news: Possible exit this week, €75m+ starlets on radar

Man Utd could reportedly let stalwart Antonio Valencia leave as early as this week, while two young talents are said to be on our radar.

The 33-year-old has been limited to just eight appearances so far this season, with interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heavily favouring Ashley Young at right-back since he was appointed last month.

Aside from falling down the pecking order with Diogo Dalot also offering competition, Valencia’s current contract expires at the end of the season and so that will unsurprisingly add further uncertainty over his future.

As reported by The Sun, it’s suggested that Solskjaer could even give the green light to an exit before the January transfer window deadline, with both Newcastle United and Fulham specifically mentioned as interested parties.

Time will tell if such a move materialises, as it would certainly be a shame to see the veteran move on.

Elsewhere, Sky Sports note how reports claim that United are also interested in exciting young talents Steven Bergwijn and Nicolo Barella.

It’s added that the duo could cost in excess of €75m in total, but given the quality that they’ve shown for PSV Eindhoven and Cagliari respectively to this point, it could be argued that they would be two very sensible long-term additions to the squad to bolster our options out wide and in midfield.

Nevertheless, any big-money signings will surely have to wait until a permanent appointment is made this summer, as any incoming players will have to fit the ideas and system of the new boss, assuming that Solskjaer doesn’t get it even if this impressive winning streak of ours continues.
