Man Utd transfer news: Sancho talks ongoing, Schmeichel lined up, youngster heading for loan exit

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Monday, August 3.

Manchester United may still be in action, with their Europa League campaign to recommence on Wednesday, but focus has already turned to the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils are believed to be keen to strengthen in a number of positions, with Borussia Dortmund attacker Jadon Sancho rumoured to be their top priority.

While speculation over incoming activity dominates the headlines, United are also said to be looking to get players off their books - either on loan or on a permanent basis.

Monday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Dortmund are rumoured to have set United a deadline to reach an agreement over a fee for Sancho, but the Red Devils are reportedly unconcerned by that threat.

BVB are known to be holding out for a fee of around £100m for the England international, who once again starred in the Bundesliga last season with 17 goals and 16 assists.

The Manchester Evening News reports that United are still in talks with Dortmund and are in no rush to strike a deal, even if that means negotiations dragging through the summer.

Any agreement is likely to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side pay a large portion of the fee over a number of years.

Manchester United to loan out James Garner?

For all the talk of incoming arrivals at Old Trafford, United will have to streamline their squad somewhat over the next couple of months.

The Sun suggests that teenage midfielder James Garner is among those close to leaving United, albeit on a temporary basis.

Garner, who has made three starts and four substitute appearances in 2019-20, is thought to be a target for Championship sides Swansea City and Bournemouth.

With the last of those appearances coming in December, United are keen to find regular first-team football for Garner ahead of the next campaign.

Swans boss Steve Cooper is familiar with Garner after his spell as coach of England Under-17s, likely leaving the Welsh outfit in the driving seat to sign him.

Manchester United 'eye Kasper Schmeichel as David de Gea replacement'

David de Gea's future will continue to be hotly debated throughout the summer following a disappointing 2019-20 campaign for the Spanish goalkeeper.

A number of names have been tipped to replace De Gea, with Leicester City stopper Kasper Schmeichel the latest on the list.

Schmeichel, the son of United legend Peter, has made a name for himself at Leicester over the past nine years and impressed again this term.

The Dane would represent a cheaper alternative to Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak, who will allegedly not be allowed to leave the Wanda Metropolitano this summer for less than £109m.
