Manchester United have already completed the signing of winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund and are about to close the deal to bring Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane onto the pitch. However, following the two high profile inbound transfers, further purchases will depend on sales in the remainder of the transfer window, according to the telegraph.
Notably, United has been attributed a strong interest in Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaers tries to provide real competition to Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right defensive flank, but their plan for this window is to reach a net expense of between £ 75 million and £ 100 million. The signings of Sancho and Varane have already taken their spending beyond the upper limit of the range and any move for Trippier will have to depend on whether players leave the club and the amounts earned from potential sales.
Striker Jesse Lingard and midfielder Paul Pogba have been linked at the start, with Paris Saint-Germain having a strong interest in the latter.
