Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Lisandro Martinez deal CONFIRMED, Frenkie de Jong BLOCKING United move, Eriksen set to sign

Good morning, United fans

Jesse Lingard will be remembered for his Tik Tok antics at Man United instead of his football skills.

That’s according to talkSPORT host Simon Jordan: “Because he knows that the free transfer side of things will enable his wage packet to be at a certain level and that’s his choice.

“Jesse Lingard will be remembered, for me, for TikTok videos.”

Meanwhile, Leeds have reportedly made contact with Juan Mata’s representatives over a free transfer.

Mata, 34, left rivals Manchester United upon the expiry of his contract at the end of June.

He has attracted interest from several clubs but it is reportedly only Leeds who have made an approach.

According to AS, Leeds sporting director Victor Orta has spoken to Mata’s father about a potential move.

But talks are believed to be slow despite both parties being keen to complete a deal.

Leeds are likely negotiating a significant wage cut since Mata reportedly earned £70,000-a-week at United.

Napoli are in contact with Manchester United regarding a move for Eric Bailly, according to reports.

The Serie A side are preparing for life after stalwart defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Senegalese defender, 34, is set to bring eight years at Napoli to an end by signing for Chelsea in a £34m deal.

According to transfer expert Alfredo Pedulla, Napoli are looking to Man United for their Koulibaly replacement.

Finally, Man United will reportedly sell THREE centre-backs as they close in on signing Lisandro Martinez for £46million.

SunSport understands that United are close to finalising Martinez’s transfer as the Premier League giants are thought to have made a breakthrough in their talks with Ajax.

It comes after they previously offered £42m for the defender – just shy of the Dutch side’s £46m asking price – which has now been met.

The Daily Mirror states that the South American’s arrival will result in three other defenders heading out of the exit door.

They claim that Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones will all be sold “to ensure Ten Hag’s squad is not overloaded with centre-backs” this term.
