Football rumours: Thomas Muller linked with move to Manchester United
Manchester United dominate the transfer rumour mill at the start of the week.
What the papers say
Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has been linked with a move to Manchester United. According to The Sun – which cites German outlet Bild – the Red Devils are in the market to exploit the veteran Germany international’s lack of playing time since the arrival of Harry Kane, with a 2024 bid.
United are also reportedly interested in Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo. Metro, via Sky Germany, says Todibo is on the Old Trafford club’s radar for a January move, but they may need to compete with Tottenham for his services.
The Sun, via ESPN and Corriere Dello Sport, reports Red Devils duo Jadon Sancho and Donny Van De Beek could both be sold to Juventus for as little as £26million.
Newcastle are weighing up a move for former United goalkeeper and current free agent David De Gea, according to the Daily Mail. Nick Pope’s shoulder injury has left the Magpies short in that department.
