Manchester United tipped to sign Jadon Sancho and three others this summer

3 min read

The summer transfer window is approaching and the rumour mill is now in full swing for Manchester United.

MEN Sport understands that Erling Haaland and a new defender are the club’s transfer priorities, though a move for Jadon Sancho has not been ruled out.

Ben White and Pau Torres are two centre-backs that United are interested in, as the club seek to find competition for Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire.

There are plenty of other names that are being touted with a potential switch to Old Trafford too, as well as potential outgoings.

Here’s a look at who Sky Bet fancy to join United this summer.

Jadon Sancho – 5/2

Sancho is still on Manchester United’s radar, though he is not the club’s transfer priority.

Since last summer, the landscape for a potential Sancho transfer has changed entirely. The Englishman’s contract expires in 2023, decreasing his value, while form and fitness problems have seen his stock fall too.

Dortmund also look set to miss out on Champions League football next season, with the club currently seven points adrift of fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt, which will only further decrease their revenue streams.

United are favourites to sign the Borussia Dortmund winger at 5/2, with Chelsea (6/1) and Liverpool (9/1) some way behind.

Declan Rice – 4/1

Manchester United have held an interest in Declan Rice, though the MEN understands that has cooled.

The fortunes of Jesse Lingard could potentially influence a deal, should United try to use the 28-year-old as any form of makeweight in a transfer.

West Ham manager David Moyes has previously stated he values Rice at over £100million but Sky Bet has him at 4/1 to move to Old Trafford.

A transfer to Chelsea is 5/1, whilst Arsenal (9/1), Manchester City (10/1) and Liverpool (12/1) are both big outsiders.

Ben White – 5/1

White is one of the centre-backs interesting Manchester United.

Sources have told the MEN that White sees himself at a big club like United in the next few years, having impressed last season on loan at Leeds United and established himself in the Premier League with Brighton this term.

White is 5/1 to move to Manchester United, though Paris Saint-Germain are surprise favourites for his signature at 4/1.

Leeds are at 8/1 whilst Liverpool are longer odds at (9/1).

Erling Haaland – 10/1

Manchester United have Haaland as their top priority signing.

The club are keen to sign a number nine to finally replace Romelu Lukaku and football director John Murtough and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have agreed that man is Haaland.

Dortmund have insisted they do not want to sell the Norwegian, who is valued at £154m.

SkyBet have priced him at 10/1 to join United, with Manchester City favourites at 11/8, Real Madrid at 5/2 and Barcelona 7/2.
