Manchester United’s preseason preparations are in full swing following manager Erik ten Hag’s contract extension. Players who were not involved in the recent European Championships or Copa America have returned to training, marking the start of their preparations for the upcoming season with a match against Rosenborg on July 14th. The return to training marks a significant period for the club, with new signings joining the squad and the ongoing situation involving Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho to be addressed.

 

Manchester United’s pre-season training has seen the arrival of new coaching staff, including assistant coach Ruud van Nistelrooy and goalkeeping coach Jelle van Rouwelaar. The several loaned-out players, including Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek, and Mason Greenwood are back to the club. However, the summer transfer window has been active, with the club actively seeking to move on these three players.

Jadon Sancho’s future remains uncertain, with Juventus emerging as a potential destination. The Italian club is seeking both a winger and a midfielder, and are considering offloading Federico Chiesa to facilitate the move. While a swap deal involving Sancho and Chiesa was proposed, Manchester United declined. Despite interest from other clubs, Sancho is reportedly waiting for Juventus’ offer, suggesting a preference for a move to Turin. Despite Sancho’s potential move to Juventus, his presence at Carrington remains uncertain. Reports suggest that INEOS, are keen to maintain a positive atmosphere at the training ground and may not allow Sancho’s presence due to the ongoing transfer saga. Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood’s future at Manchester United appears to be over. The talented winger is seeking a fresh start away from Old Trafford, despite the potential for a successful partnership with manager Erik ten Hag. Manchester United are actively seeking to sell Mason Greenwood, with interest from Olympique Marseille. The club is aiming for a transfer fee of around ¬£25 million, with a significant sell-on clause of 40-50% on any future sale. Girona have emerged as frontrunners, with advanced talks underway and contract negotiations nearing completion for Donny Vandebeek. A medical is expected to follow, potentially paving the way for Vandebeek’s move to the Spanish club.

Manchester United will be looking to let go of the likes of Lindelof, Maguire in case of good offers, to make room for the arrival of De Ligt and Branthwaite if Everton lowers their price tag. However, Manchester are open to letting Casemiro leave as they hope to bring in new midfielder. With the INEOS working very fast on accomplishing deals within the space of July to join the preseason and be ready for the season before hand.

Manchester United are poised for a busy summer transfer window, with the departures of Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial. The club is actively seeking to offload further players to create space for new arrivals and bolster their squad in pursuit of a return to former glories.
