Saturday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Daniel James, Ousmane Dembele, Jadon Sancho

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Saturday, October 3.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

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:


Leeds United 'offer Manchester United £25m for Daniel James'

Leeds United have reportedly made a £25m offer for Manchester United attacker Daniel James.

The Wales international came close to joining the Whites from Swansea City in January 2019, but he ultimately remained at the Liberty Stadium before moving to United at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

James has been a regular for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side since his arrival, making 48 appearances in all competitions, contributing four goals and seven assists in the process.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a loan move to Elland Road over the last week, although it is understood that the Red Devils are not prepared to let the attacker leave on a short-term basis.

According to Football Insider, Marcelo Bielsa's side have now offered United £25m for the Welshman in the hope of securing his signature before the end of the transfer window.

James has made two appearances for his current club this season, although he was left out of the squad for last weekend's Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.



Manchester United considering Lucas Ocampos move?

Manchester United are reportedly weighing up a move for Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos.

The Red Devils seem determined to land a new right-sided attacker before the transfer window shuts on October 5, and with a move for Jadon Sancho appearing dead in the water, United have been forced to seek out alternative options.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have been tipped to move for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele, but United reportedly have their eye on another prolific La Liga forward.

According to ESPN, the Red Devils are seriously considering a late swoop for Ocampos, who could be allowed to depart Sevilla for a figure of £35m - money that could be raised through the potential sale of Daniel James.

The 26-year-old was a key man for Julen Lopetegui's side during their stellar 2019-20 season, scoring 17 goals in all competitions and helping Sevilla win the Europa League.

Ocampos will see his current deal with the La Liga outfit expire in 2024.
