The Premier League side are closing in on bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford as they look to complete their summer transfer business by Tuesday night’s deadline
The shock return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United has changed the face of the summer transfer window.
The £13m deal to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford changes that outlook completely though, with United now arguably the favourites to win the Premier League.
Despite the three statement additions, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has more work to do before Tuesday’s transfer deadline though.
Here, Mirror Football rounds up all the latest United transfer news…
Ronaldo terms to be agreed
The Serie A side will receive £12.8million, plus £6.2m in add-ons, in return for the Portuguese superstar.
United announced the agreement on Friday evening, with personal terms, a visa and a medical still to be completed.
Cristiano Ronaldo to Man Utd
Ronaldo travelled to Lisbon yesterday after bidding farewell to Juventus to agree the final details on the move.
That agreement should come imminently, with transfer insider Fabrizio Romano reporting that proposed two-year contract has already been sent to Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.
Though the deal has been agreed quickly, United have missed the deadline for Ronaldo to play against Wolves this Sunday, with the 36-year-old forced to wait until after the international break to make his debut.
Van Gaal drops Van De Beek hint
Netherlands national team boss Louis Van Gaal has hinted that Donny Van De Beek must leave Manchester United if he wants to called up to the Dutch squad.
Van Gaal replaced Frank De Boer over the summer and has left Van De Beek out of the first squad of his reign.
And the former United boss made it clear that Van De Beek must be playing regularly for his club if he is to play any part for the Netherlands on the international stage.
How would you rate Manchester United’s summer transfer window? Comment below.
“You have to play matches. That’s not that hard, is it? It’s just logical thinking,” Van Gaal said when asked why Van De Beek out been omitted.
“I can’t say anything about that,” Van Gaal added when he was asked if he had told Van De Beek to leave Old Trafford.
“I talked to Donny for about 45 minutes last night; then it is also about other matters than with the Dutch national team. But I can’t say anything about that. That’s between Donny and me.”
Trippier interest reignited
Manchester United are set to revive their interest in Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier, with Diogo Dalot edging closer to a departure from Old Trafford.
Trippier has been one of United’s top targets of the summer window, though it appeared their interest had cooled in recent weeks.
That was in part due to the pre-season form of Dalot, who spent last season on loan at Serie A side AC Milan.
But The Athletic now report that Borussia Dortmund have made an offer to take the Portuguese right-back on loan.
It is stated that United will not allow Dalot to leave without first lining up a replacement, with that man set to be Trippier.
The report states that while “major obstacles” are currently blocking both moves, dialogue has been reopened ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
