Manchester United transfer roundup: Red Devils make Cristiano Ronaldo decision, Frenkie de Jong deal moves closer

Sports Mole rounds up the latest Manchester United transfer news, including updates on Cristiano Ronaldo and Frenkie de Jong.

Manchester United are working to boost their squad during this summer's transfer window, with the club aiming to return to the top four in the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils will be back in pre-season training on Monday, while their first friendly of the summer will take place against Liverpool on July 12.

Here, Sports Mole provides a transfer roundup of the biggest stories involving the 20-time English champions, who will open their new Premier League season against Brighton & Hove Albion on August 7.

Man United reportedly have no interest in selling Cristiano Ronaldo during this summer's transfer window.

The Portugal international's future has recently been the subject of speculation, with Chelsea said to have held talks with his agent Jorge Mendes over a possible switch to Stamford Bridge in the current market.

However, according to BBC Sport, the 20-time English champions are not entertaining the idea of Ronaldo leaving, with new head coach Erik ten Hag viewing him as a key part of his plans moving forward.

The 37-year-old scored 24 goals and registered three assists in 38 appearances for the Red Devils last season, but the team ended the campaign without a trophy and also missed out on the Champions League.

Ronaldo is believed to be keen for Man United to show more ambition during this summer's transfer window in order to help them close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool in the table next term.

Man United are reportedly hopeful of completing a deal for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong before the end of next week.

The 20-time English champions remain in discussions with Barcelona over a potential deal for the Netherlands international, who has been identified as a leading transfer target by new head coach Ten Hag.

The two clubs are still said to be apart in terms of their valuations of the midfielder, but a proposed move for the Dutchman is believed to be moving closer.

According to Sport, Man United are now confident that an agreement could be reached next week, with the Red Devils potentially paying just below £70m for the 25-year-old.

De Jong was again a key player for Barcelona during the 2021-22 campaign, but the Catalan outfit are open to a sale due to their financial problems.

Ajax attacker Antony missed his team's opening pre-season training session on Friday amid reports linking him with a switch to Man United.

The 22-year-old starred under Ten Hag in Amsterdam last season and is believed to have been identified by the Red Devils as a leading target in this summer's market.

Antony's absence from the training session comes amid suggestions that his agents are pushing for Ajax to accept offers for the South American ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

The Brazil international was in strong form at club level during the 2021-22 season, scoring 12 goals and registering 10 assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.

The forward still has more than three years left to run on his contract in Amsterdam but is expected to be on the move before the end of the summer transfer window.
