The MEN reported during the European Championship that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is edging towards favouring Dean Henderson as his first-choice goalkeeper going into next season.
De Gea’s form last term was better than it was over the preceding two campaigns but he remains far off the level he performed at under Louis van Gaal and for the majority of Jose Mourinho’s reign.
It’s unlikely United will find a permanent buyer for De Gea given his £375,000-a-week wages, but if they do, they can expect to receive around £35m-£40m for the Spaniard.
Jesse Lingard’s West Ham renaissance added millions back onto his value and his worth might’ve soared even higher had he not been culled from England’s Euro 2020 squad.
West Ham manager David Moyes said in May he was “hopeful” Lingard would want to move to the London Stadium permanently. United can expect to receive £20-25million for the 28-year-old.
Waddle says Kane has earned right to leave Spurs
Diogo Dalot’s move to AC Milan, should it materialise, will likely see United receive a similar fee – although the MEN reported last month the Portuguese right-back will not demand a move away, despite Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s dominance in that position and United’s keenness to sign a new right-back.
United will also hope to offload Phil Jones and Andreas Pereira before the window closes, while Brandon Williams remains a loan target for Southampton. The loan fee and salary demands United are putting on Southampton for Williams were reported to be a sticking point in negotiations earlier this week.
Possible transfer expenditure: £168million (Sancho £73m, Varane £50m, Trippier £20m, Camavinga £25m)
