Manchester United transfer news: Bailly could leave, Sancho update, Dalot exit

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Friday, August 7.

Manchester United are expected to be active during this summer's transfer window as they look to get closer to Liverpool in next season's Premier League table.

Bruno Fernandes's January arrival inspired the 20-time English champions to a top-four finish, and a number of new players continue to be linked with the club ahead of the 2020-21 campaign, which begins in September.

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

Friday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:


Manchester United's Eric Bailly 'offered to AC Milan'

AC Milan have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly during this summer's transfer window.

The 26-year-old has only made 10 appearances for United during the 2019-20 campaign, although he did not make his return from a long-term knee problem until February.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan have been offered the opportunity to sign Bailly this summer, but the Italian giants are not expected to pursue a deal at this stage.

The Ivory Coast international is behind Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire in the pecking order at Old Trafford, although he is expected to play a part in their Europa League challenge.


Borussia Dortmund chief plays down Jadon Sancho, Manchester United rumours

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has claimed that Manchester United are yet to make a move for English attacker Jadon Sancho.

The speculation surrounding the 20-year-old's future continues to gather pace, with United thought to be determined to bring him to Old Trafford ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

However, speaking to Suddeutsche Zeitung, Watzke said: "So far, there has been no contact between Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United in terms of Sancho. Also not indirectly or through alleged intermediaries."

BVB are believed to value the former Manchester City youngster in excess of £100m, but United would prefer to pay a smaller fee up front with the rest in performance-based add-ons.


Everton 'keen on summer deal for Diogo Dalot'

Everton are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot.

The 21-year-old has only made 11 appearances for United during the 2019-20 campaign, while he has featured on just one occasion for the club since the lockdown period.

According to The Mirror, Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring the Portugal Under-21 international to Goodison Park during this summer's transfer window.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is United's first-choice right-back, blocking Dalot's route to the first team, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah has also seemingly moved ahead of him in the pecking order.
