Man Utd statement on Mason Greenwood, Cristiano Ronaldo joins United WhatsApp, Paul Pogba latest

Hello Man Utd fans

Man Utd defender Phil Jones is lined up by Bordeaux to replace exiled Laurent Koscienly, according to reports.

The 36-year-old veteran, who spent nine years at Arsenal before joining Bordeaux in 2019, found himself cold on the French side.

And now the Ligue 1 side have identified former rival Koscienly and United stalwart Jones as his replacement, according to L’Equipe.

Meanwhile, Man Utd, Chelsea and Newcastle are vying for the transfer of superstar Ousmane Dembele, according to reports.

Sky Sports report that the Frenchman is ‘most likely’ to join a Premier League club if a transfer is made this weekend.

Spanish outlet Marca have also confirmed that Dembele and his agent are now looking for his next club.

They say it’s ‘clear’ to the winger and his representatives that a move is in his best interests.

A loan would be a possibility if a permanent agreement cannot be reached.

Finally, Man Utd have reportedly entered the race to land French starlet Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco.

The Red Devils are ready to do battle with Premier League rivals Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City for the 22-year-old.

And La Liga leaders Real Madrid are also on board after sending their chief scout to watch the midfielder in action.

Reports in France suggest Monaco haven’t even bothered to name an asking price for the in-demand wonderkid.

They are confident that any bidding war between Europe’s top clubs would push the fee well beyond £33m.
