Saturday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Ansu Fati, Paul Pogba, Diogo Dalot

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Saturday, November 21.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Saturday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'made £134m bid for Ansu Fati over summer'

Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati was reportedly the subject of a €150m (£134m) offer from Manchester United during the summer transfer window.

The 18-year-old has scored 13 times and registered five assists in 43 appearances for Barca since breaking into the first team, including five goals and four assists in 10 outings this term.

The Spain international is expected to be out until March with a knee injury but his club are said to be working on a new contract until the summer of 2026.

According to Sport, super-agent Jorge Mendes set up a €150m (£134m) move to United over the summer, but Barca quickly rejected the 'dizzying' proposal.

The report claims that the La Liga giants were not even prepared to entertain the offer due to Fati's importance to their long-term project, particularly with Lionel Messi expected to leave next summer.

The teenager is believed to have a £367m release clause in his current deal at Camp Nou.

Paul Pogba 'could run down Manchester United contract and leave on a free transfer'

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is reportedly considering running down his contract at Old Trafford and leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2022.

Pogba's future in Manchester is again the subject of speculation, with the World Cup winner admitting concerns over his club situation while on France duty during the recent international break.

Juventus and Real Madrid are both believed to be interested in signing the 27-year-old, although United are allegedly not prepared to sell the midfielder for a cut-price fee.

According to The Athletic, the Frenchman is considering running down his current deal, which expires in June 2022, before leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer.

The report claims that Pogba would have his pick of a number of elite clubs in Europe if he became available for nothing, but it remains to be seen whether the Red Devils attempt to sell him next summer.

The former Le Havre youngster has only managed one goal in 11 appearances for United this season and has found himself out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's starting XI in recent weeks.
