Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Tuesday, July 28.

Manchester United must now turn their attention to the summer transfer window having left their business until late in January.

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.

Tuesday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:


Manchester City 'still in talks over Ferran Torres deal'

Manchester City are reportedly locked in negotiations with Valencia over a potential summer deal for winger Ferran Torres.

The Spaniard registered four goals and five assists for the La Liga outfit during the 2019-20 league campaign, but Torres now has under a year left to run on his current deal with Valencia.

City are believed to be leading the race for the 20-year-old's signature, but Valencia's valuation of Torres has supposedly hindered negotiations between the two clubs.

According to the Daily Mail, the La Liga outfit are holding out for a fee of £40m in spite of Torres' contract expiring at the end of next season.

The report claims that Torres is hopeful of a deal being reached, but Valencia are playing hardball and have also enquired about the possibility of City midfielder Yangel Herrera - who spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Granada - being included as part of a deal.

Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus are also said to be keeping a close eye on developments surrounding the future of Torres.



Manchester United 'told to pay £80m for Jack Grealish'

Manchester United have reportedly been informed that it would take a bid of £80m to pry Jack Grealish away from Aston Villa this summer.

Speculation surrounding the Villa captain's future has intensified in recent weeks after Dean Smith's side just managed to stave off relegation from the Premier League.

Grealish has openly admitted that he does not know if he has played his last game in a Villa shirt, and Man United are regarded as the favourites for the Englishman's signature.

However, according to the Mirror, Villa co-owner Nassef Sawiris is not prepared to allow Grealish to leave for less than £80m despite the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Grealish has just under three years left to run on his current deal at Villa Park, but the report claims that the 24-year-old is yet to push for a new deal and is desperate to play for a club competing in the Champions League.

The Villa skipper turned out 36 times in the Premier League for Smith's side in the 2019-20 campaign - registering eight goals and six assists.
