Morning, United fans
Antonio Rudiger leads Old Trafford transfer speculation ahead of Robert Lewandowski, Victor Osimhen and Frenkie de Jong.
It’s certainly fitting after the Red Devils’ latest defensive horror show secured Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that centre-back Rudiger will leave on a free transfer this summer.
And United are favorites for the German star despite interest from Juventus and Newcastle.
But Bayern Munich insist legendary goalscorer Robert Lewandowski will stay on until his contract expires in 2023, if not longer.
United and Barcelona have been tipped to test Bayern’s resolve at the end of the season.
Lewandowski’s likely lawlessness bolsters Harry Kane’s likely position as a major strike target for the Red Devils this summer.
Meanwhile, Napoli are reportedly reportedly seeking £67m for Arsenal and United are targeting Osimhen.
And Barcelona midfielder De Jong is seen as a ‘priority target’ for new United boss Erik ten Hag.
But Barca boss Xavi insists the former Ajax stalwart of Ten Hag has an “important” future at the Nou Camp.
Old Trafford caretaker chief Ralf Rangnick believes a top-four finish is virtually impossible after Prem’s defeat at the Emirates on Saturday.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s 100th Premier League goal was undermined by another prank at the back, despite Rangnick falling under fire from Harry Maguire.
