Man Utd’s Haaland hope, ‘hold talks’ with Pogba replacement plus Niguez update

It's been anything but a quiet summer at Manchester United following the arrival of Jadon Sancho and the imminent signing of Raphael Varane.

But boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is showing no signs of stopping his relentless recruitment drive.

The Red Devils trailed Manchester City in second place last season and with Pep Guardiola chasing Jack Grealish and Harry Kane, the Norwegian knows he has it all to do to be competitive for the title again.

However, United just might achieve that given the calibre of signing they have already made and are looking to make.

Here, Daily Star Sport rounds up all the gossip surrounding the Europa League finalists.

Haaland hope

According to reports, Ole is receiving regular updates on the most wanted man in football: Erling Haaland.

United reportedly believe Ole's ties with his fellow countryman will help them land the monstrous centre forward.

They enjoyed a strong relationship when the Borussia Dortmund star was a teenager at Norwegian side Molde.

And the Sun reports that Ole is receiving updates on the ex-RB Salzburg star.

The Old Trafford boss has recently penned a new three-year deal.

Pogba replacements

Paul Pogba is the centre of interest from PSG, after turning down a new contract at Manchester United.

Which explains why, according to reports, chiefs at Old Trafford have already held talks with the representatives of potential replacements.

According to ESPN, taks have been held over Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga, Wolves star Ruben Neves and Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez.

Pogba's contract remains a cause for concern at Old Trafford, and fear losing him next summer for free if they don't resolve the situation soon.

Declan Rice remains a long-term target, although his name has not been mentioned among those who Old Trafford has recently spoken to.

Niguez update

United are reportedly battling it out with bitter rivals Liverpool for Atletico Madrid star Saul Niguez – so much so that his representatives have already landed in England, reports DailyMirror.

Atletico are prepared to sell Niguez, 26, after landing Rodrigo De Paul from Serie A side Udinese.

Niguez was a key part of Atletico's triumph towards a La Liga title last season, and made 33 league appearances.

But it is hoped his signature could be secured as early as next week.
