Man Utd transfer news: The latest & LIVE player rumours from Old Trafford

Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko has chosen to join Chelsea ahead of Manchester City and Manchester United, according to L'Equipe, via Sport Witness.

Chelsea were reportedly getting tired of waiting for Bakayoko to make a decision, and that has spurred the player and his entourage to plump for a move to Stamford Bridge.

The two clubs now need to agree a fee, with Chelsea reportedly offering up to €30 million (£26m) so far, with Monaco holding out for at least €45m (£39m).

Real Madrid have slapped a £78 miilion price tag on Manchester United target Alvaro Morata, according to The Independent.

United had hoped to get a deal done for the striker for a fee of around £60m, but Madrid president Florentino Perez has no desire to sell and wants to get the best price possible.

Manchester United have not made an official offer for Andrea Belotti and are having doubts about the Torino striker’s €100 million (£88m) buy-out clause, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Belotti has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, but United’s priority is to finalise a deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Arsenal are among those keeping a close eye on Chris Smalling's situation at Manchester United, reports The Sun.

With the Red Devils having put a deal in place for Victor Lindelof, they are expected to freshen up their defensive ranks - with West Ham also keen on England international Smalling.

Jose Mourinho is not looking to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho and instead wants to bring Nemanja Matic to Manchester United from Chelsea, reports the Manchester Evening News.

Mourinho wants to sign a holding midfielder and has earmarked Matic, or Tottenham's Eric Dier, for the role. A deal for Matic is likely to hinge on Chelsea's willingness to sell to another Premier League club, although the champions' pursuit of Fabinho's Monaco team-mate Tiemoue Bakayoko could help to swing things in United's favour.

Barcelona remain in talks to sign Nelson Semedo, but are not willing to meet Benfica’s €50 million (£44m) asking price for the right-back, according to

Semedo has also been linked with Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Manchester United, but Barcelona are in pole position to agree a deal.

Chelsea and Manchester United are ready to battle it out with two Italian clubs for Fiorentina winger Federico Bernardeschi, according to Tuttosport.

Inter Milan and Juventus are also interested in Bernardeschi, but Fiorentina would prefer to sell the Italy international abroad for a fee of at least £35 million.

Manchester United have agreed a deal 'in principle' to sign James Rodriguez, but there could be an issue in completing the deal for the Real Madrid man, according to OK Diario .

As part of the transfer, reports claim that James' marketing supplier Adidas want the Colombian to wear the No.10 shirt currently occupied by Wayne Rooney, whose future at Old Trafford is uncertain.

Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches will snub Manchester United in favour of holding out for a Barcelona move, according to the Daily Mail.

The Portugal international, 19, starred at Euro 2016 last summer and was tipped to be a big hit in the Bundesliga after joining from Benfica.

However, Sanches could be sold this summer after an unimpressive first season at Bayern, and Barca are believed to be ahead of Premier League giants Man Utd in the queue.

Real Sociedad are interested in signing Adnan Januzaj, but want to negotiate down Manchester United's €10 million (£8.8m) asking price, according to Marca .

Januzaj spent last season on loan at Sunderland and will reportedly be allowed to leave United on a permanent basis this summer as he isn't part of Jose Mourinho's long-term plans.

Manchester United target Ivan Perisic has decided to leave Inter Milan this summer, accoridng to the Corriere dello Sport .

Inter will demand €50 million (£44m) for the midfielder, with United ready to offer €40m (£35.2m) for a player who wants to link up with Jose Mourinho next season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could yet earn a new deal at Manchester United, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Swedish striker was not included on the club's retained list but is working his way back to fitness with the club and may be handed a short-term contract when back to full health.

Alvaro Morata has told Gareth Bale to join him at Manchester United, reports the Don Balon.

And the Spain forward has apparently told former Tottenham winger Bale to make the move to Old Trafford as well as Jose Mourinho builds a team capable of challenging for titles next season.

Manchester United face competition from Everton in their pursuit of Burnley defender Michael Keane, according to Sky Sports.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly interested in bringing Keane back to Old Trafford, but his opposite number at Everton – Ronald Koeman – has made the centre-half his number one defensive target.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed a deal to join Los Angeles Galaxy following his release by Manchester United, according to Marca.

The Swedish striker has not been retained by United and is now due to put the finishing touches to a move to MLS which had been provisionally agreed in March.

Inter Milan are set to reject Manchester United's improved offer for Ivan Perisic, according to Calcio Mercato.

The Red Devils have improved on their original offer to €40 million, but Luciano Spalletti is determined not to sell the Croatian midfielder for less than €55m.

Manchester United have offered up £70 million for 23-year-old striker Andrea Belotti, according to Independent.

Jose Mourinho hopes the Torino striker can join with Alvaro Morata to form a powerful front line for the club next season.

Manchester United are trying to beat Liverpool to the signing of Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins, says O Jogo.

Martins has a £46.5 million release clause, but Sporting would reportedly be willing to let the 22-year-old go for around £40m in the right situation.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has agreed terms in principle to join Manchester United this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph.

United have already had one offer for Morata rejected, but are hoping a bid in the region of £60 million will persuade Real to sell the Spain international.

Wayne Rooney is considering staying at Manchester United for another season rather than looking to move in the summer, the Daily Mail reports.

The striker will make a final decision when he returns from holiday after being linked with a move to former club Everton and a big-money switch to China.

Real Madrid are prepared to sell striker Alvaro Morata for €100 million (£87.7m), according to Sport .

Manchester United and AC Milan are leading the chase for Morata, who reportedly wants to play regular first-team football next season.

Manchester United could revive their chase of Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann, with the club struggling to reach a deal with Real Madrid for Alvaro Morata, according to Metro .

The complicated search for a striker has seen Jose Mourinho's side linked with Griezmann, Morata and Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku looks set to join Chelsea, however, while Real's desire to land David de Gea as part of the deal for Morata is a major stumbling block for United.
