Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Frenkie de Jong UPDATE, £51m Endrick chase, Martial future latest, Jurrien Timber TWIST

Morning, United fans

Raphael Varane says United’s players have never doubted “legend” Cristiano Ronaldo – as the wantaway striker struggles to find a taker.

Madrid giants Real and Atletico appear to have joined other European giants like PSG, Bayern and Chelsea in ruling out a move for the Portugal striker.

But Old Trafford defender Varane denied Red Devils’ stars have questioned Ron’s place in the team, despite claims the 37-year-old can’t play a pressing game.

The Frenchman said: “That debate was outside of the dressing room.

“We know his quality. Cristiano is a great competitor. He’s a legend and he always helps the team, so obviously it’s very good to play with him.”

Ronaldo is reportedly heading for more showdown talks with boss Erik ten Hag.

And it’s claimed the ex-Real hero would take a 30 PER CENT pay cut for the right move this summer.

Meanwhile, Ten Hag has blocked Old Trafford chiefs from selling frontman Anthony Martial – and says he also hopes to revive Donny van de Beek’s Old Trafford career.

The Red Devils and Chelsea are being linked with Benjamin Pavard, amid suggestions Bayern would accept £30million for the France defender.

But it’s been a quiet 24 hours in the Frenkie de Jong saga, although the bookies still rate United as favourites to land the Barcelona midfielder ahead of Chelsea.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are reportedly ready to pay up to £60m for Ajax winger Antony.

And outgoing United midfielder Jesse Lingard has rejected West Ham in favour of a £200,000-a-week free transfer to Prem new boys Nottingham Forest.
