Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Frenkie de Jong FINAL offer as United chiefs fly to Barcelona, Antony could join TOMORROW


Good morning Man Utd fans

Manchester United picked up a major 2-1 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday.

Jadon Sancho opened the scoring on 16 minutes after a low cross by Anthony Elanga from the left flank.

Marcus Rashford doubled United’s lead after 53 minutes during a counter-attack after Anthony Martial played him through with a clever ball.

Mohamed Salah put the Reds back in game in the 81st minute after David de Gea failed to hold on to a shot by Fabio Carvalho.

Meanwhile, United have agreed personal terms with Ajax star Antony and are preparing a new £80million bid this week.

The winger is in favour of a move to United and didn’t train on Saturday – missing Sunday’s 1-0 win over Sparta Rotterdam.

And according to Nicolo Schira, the Red Devils have already reached a deal with the Brazil international over personal terms.

The 22-year-old ace has agreed to a five-year contract, keeping him at Old Trafford until 2027.

And Marseille have rejected the chance to sign United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has been trying to force an exit from Old Trafford since returning from a prolonged summer break but has been struggling to find a new team.

L’OM were the most recent club to express an interest in signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner but they are no longer considering a deal.

According to RMC Sport, the Ligue 1 outfit now have no intention of recruiting the star forward.

This acts as another major blow to the Portugal skipper, who is eager to make a return to Champions League football.

Finally, United will make one final effort to sign Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.

The Red Devils have been chasing De Jong all summer long and even agreed a £72million deal with Barca.

However, they have been unsuccessful in their efforts to lure De Jong to Old Trafford with the deal complicated by money still owed to the midfielder.

The Blaugrana are under increasing financial pressure having failed to register new signing Jules Kounde, and are in need of at least one big sale to ease their ongoing burden.

According to journalist Marcel van der Kraan, the Red Devils will try their luck with the Netherlands international again with further funds available if necessary
