    DONE DEAL

    Manchester United have completed a move for veteran striker Edinson Cavani… at last!

    SEVEN UP

    Edinson Cavani will reportedly wear the No7 shirt for Manchester United.

    The announcement is expected shortly.

    Cavani, 33, has reportedly left the club's Carrington base after finalising his move.

    DONE DEAL

    Manchester United have landed exciting teenage prospect Amad Traore in a £37million deal.

    The club completed the transfer of the 18-year-old winger from Atalanta with just two hours to go to the transfer deadline.

    Work permit problems mean he will not actually join the club until January.

    The deal is worth £19million up front with a further £18million to come based on appearances and achievements.

    SMALL WORLD

    Manchester United have confirmed the departure of Chris Smalling.

    He will now continue his career with Roma in Italy.

    The centre-back was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson in 2010 from Fulham, and went on to make 323 appearances for the club, scoring 18 goals.

    SMALL MERCY

    Chris Smalling has finally left Manchester United, joining AS Roma on a permanent basis for £18million.

    The England international spent last season on loan in the Italian capital, and was a hit with the club's fans and manager Paulo Fonseca.

    The deal went down to the wire, however, being completed just ONE minute before the Serie A deadline at 8pm.

    United will receive an initial £13.5m upfront for the 30-year-old.

    And Roma could be made to stump up another £4.5m in add-ons.

    OUS NEXT?

    Manchester United's proposed move for Ousmane Dembele is OFF.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were only prepared to sign the 23-year-old on loan.

    But Barcelona wanted to offload him permanently.

    That is according to The Athletic's David Ornstein.

    He claimed: “FC Barcelona changed stance late on and opened door to loan but only if 23 year-old France winger extended his contract by a year.”

    MAUR PRESSURE

    Mauricio Pochettino is heavy favourite to become Manchester United's next manager.

    And odds on current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being the next Premier League manager to be sacked have been slashed after his side's dismal 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Spurs.

    United have long been admirers of Pochettino, 48, having considered him for the post before they hired both Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer.

    On both occasions, having to go through Daniel Levy to get the affable Argentine proved too much of an obstacle for the United board.

    But with the Spurs chairman no longer in their way, having sacked his most successful hire to date last November, the Red Devils now have a clear path to Pochettino.

    RED ALERT

    Alex Telles looks delighted to have put on his Manchester United shirt for the first time.

    The 27-year-old will hope to hit the ground running following his move from Porto.

    DOUBLE TROUBLE

    Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles are in line to start for Manchester United against Newcastle after the international break.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could select the two players in his starting XI to face the Magpies on October 17 following their 6-1 defeat against Tottenham on Sunday.

    Here's how they could start…

    ED'S UP

    Edinson Cavani at Manchester United's Carrington base finalising his move to the club.

    The veteran forward is set to sign a two-year deal with the Red Devils.

    He arrives as a free agent after his Paris Saint-Germain deal expired at the end of last season.

    SHE'S PRIS-TINE

    She is used to helping the needy… now her hubby is coming to rescue Manchester United's ailing defence.

    Alex Telles' Wag Priscila Minuzzo is doing her bit for charity – using the medium of dance and street culture.

    The gorgeous missus of the new Red Devils signing co-runs the Fluencia Hip Hop House – an organisation that preaches social transformation and emancipating.

    DEAD IN THE WATER?

    Chris Smalling's move to Roma may have been agreed but it is far from certain to go through.

    That is because the Italian transfer deadline is just minutes away.

    Fabrizio Romano states that the window will slam shut in Italy at 7pm UK time – 8pm local time.

    As mentioned in our last post, the paperwork is still to be submitted.

    SMALL CHANGE

    Chris Smalling's transfer to Roma is set to go ahead, according to David Ornstein.

    The Athletic journalist stated that an agreement is in place between the two clubs with the deal to cost £13.5m with a further £4.5m in add-ons.

    However Ornstein added that the paperwork is still to be completed.

    CAV A LOOK

    An announcement confirming Edinson Cavani's move to Manchester United is “coming”, claims Fabrizio Romano.

    The journalist has confirmed the deal for the free agent is “completed and confirmed”.

    Cavani is believed to have signed a two-year deal with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

    He is set to pocket £200,000-per-week at Old Trafford.

    GUNNAR IMPRESS?

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed he has found exactly what he was looking for in Alex Telles.

    He said: “First and foremost, I welcome Alex to United.

    “He is a player we have been tracking for some time and his performances over the past few years are exactly what we are looking for.

    “He is a fighter and a winner and will add real determination and competition to the squad.

    “Alex has the qualities, both as a player and as a person, that we want here at Manchester United.”

  • Joe Miles

    'HUGE HONOUR'

    After putting pen to paper, Alex Telles said: “To join a club with prestige of Manchester United is a huge honour.

    “You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here.

    “I won many trophies at FC Porto and I want to continue that at United.

    “The manager has a clear plan and direction for this team and I can't wait to pull on the famous shirt.”

    TELL ME MORE

    Alex Telles joins a Red Devils side fresh from a 6-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

    Luke Shaw's horror show in the Old Trafford thumping helped expose United's defensive frailties, with 11 goals conceded in three Premier League games.

    And the club will be hoping their luck changes following the £18million capture of Telles.

    The Brazil international spent the last four years with Porto, helping seal a league and cup double last season.

    BREAKING NEWS

    Alex Telles has completed his move to Manchester United.

    JAD THE WRONG IDEA

    Jadon Sancho has issued an apology after being pictured breaking coronavirus rules over the weekend.

    The Manchester United target was filmed partying with fellow Three Lions Tammy Abraham and Ben Chilwell – just 36 hours before being due to join up with Gareth Southgate's squad.

    Sancho, 20, has now taken to social media to express regret for his actions.

  • sstreet

    GOAL AND GET HIM

    Manchester United's imminent new signing Alex Telles certainly won't be shy of goals.

    The Brazilian netted a stunning 13 in all competitions from left-back for Porto last season.

    So far he has represented his country once, last year, but he will be hoping to build on that with Marcelo advancing in years.

    MIC DROP

    Manchester United can't be trusted to splurge another £200million on transfers, according to Michael Owen.

    The former Red Devils striker claimed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must prove he can get the best out of the current squad first.

    Owen told Premier League Productions: “If I was the chairman or the owner, I would be nervous spending another £100m or another £200m.

    “How many times are Man United going to do that? 'Oh, there’s a problem, let’s throw millions at it! Let’s throw more millions at it!'

    “And I know fans are desperate for big-money signings because it gets everyone excited but, unless you get the basics right, unless you’ve got a plan, unless you’ve got a system, unless you’re getting the best out of the current players, how can you then be trusted to spend another £200m?”

    TIME WILL TELL

    Alex Telles has completed his move to Manchester United, according to Fabrizio Romano.

    The Porto full-back has reportedly agreed a four-year deal with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

    His deal will also include the option to extend his stay by another year.

    The journalist claims an announcement is expected in the “next hours”.

  • Joe Miles

    SARR SUBJECT

    United are reportedly seeking a loan deal for Ismaila Sarr having so far failed to sign Jadon Sancho.

    The end of a long summer transfer saga involving the Borussia Dortmund winger and the Red Devils is nigh, without an agreement in sight.

    That has forced United to look elsewhere to bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's attack.

    And French outlet Telefoot report on an approach to take Watford winger Sarr on loan.

    The deadline day bid involves an option to sign the 22-year-old for £45million next summer, and is said to have been rejected by the Hornets.

    WALKING IN MEMPHIS

    Ronald Koeman appears to be playing a key role in trying to push through Ousmane Dembele's transfer to Man Utd, in order to sign Memphis Depay.

    Koeman said: “We want Memphis Depay at Barcelona and he wants to join Barça too.”

    However, Fabrizio Romano reports that the Depay deal can only be done if Dembele leaves.

    Barca boss Koeman also said at the weekend that Dembele's future was up to him.
