Man Utd transfer round-up: Raphael Varane talks ‘advanced’ and Tahith Chong decision close

After emerging as Manchester City’s closest challengers in the Premier League this season, Manchester United now need to bring in reinforcements to make the next step.

Though it has been an improved season for the Red Devils under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there remain several areas that will need to be boosted by new signings.

With Edinson Cavani close to leaving Old Trafford after just one season, a striker will be United’s top priority.

A new winger is also needed, with Anthony Martial failing to impress, while the defence has also looked vulnerable with Harry Maguire lacking a top-quality partner.

Here, Mirror Football rounds up the latest Manchester United transfer news…

Chong decision close

Tahith Chong is reportedly ready to make a decision on his Manchester United future as he enters the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.

Chong is currently on loan at Belgian side Club Brugge, with the winger scoring four goals in seven Jupiler Pro League games.

And the Sun now report that though Chong will evaluate his options before making any decision on his future, it is likely he will return to Club Brugge permanently.
