Man Utd transfer round-up: Pogba-Dybala swap, Lingard future decision

The Paul Pogba saga will continue as we head into January as Mino Raiola tries to achieve his client’s exit.

Manchester United may be forced to sell their record signing with Real Madrid and Juventus both touted as potential destinations.

The Frenchman has long been linked with an Old Trafford departure, but United could make the deal work for them with a swap discussed.

Red Devils goalkeeper Dean Henderson could also leave in January, although his departure is likely to be on loan.

The shotstopper has his sights on the England No 1 jersey but is unable to impress Gareth Southgate while sat on the bench.

Here are the latest transfer rumours surrounding United.

Jesse Lingard is ready to seek pastures new

Lingard to rebuff contract offer

Lingard will reject a new contract should United offer him one meaning he could leave in January.

The midfielder has fallen out of favour and is struggling for minutes at Old Trafford.

United are keen to recoup a fee for the academy graduate with Italian news outlet Corriere dello Sport claiming AC Milan and inter are interested.

Scottish pair Celtic and Rangers have also been linked with the 27-year-old who has played just two cup games this season.

Paulo Dybala and Paul Pogba could swap clubs

Pogba for Dybala

The Pogba saga continues to run on but a positive resolution for all parties could be agreed.

Raiola declared his client’s days in Manchester “over” as he seeks a new employer.

Juventus, the club he left in 2016, have been heavily linked with his signature and may use Paulo Dybala as bait, reports the Athletic.

The Argentine was previously linked with United and has supposedly seen his own contract talks in Turin hit a wall.

A swap deal would suit both parties with Dybala’s talent undeniable.

Henderson encouraged to leave

Dean Henderson has been told he needs to secure a move away if he is serious about becoming England’s No 1.

David Seaman, who was once first choice for the Three Lions, has warned the United shotstopper that he will remain down the pecking order unless he is playing more regularly.

He said on the new Target Men Podcast:”If Dean Henderson wants any chance of becoming England keeper, then he needs to play more football.

“If he becomes Manchester United’s number one, then he’s a real threat to Jordan Pickford and I think he’ll probably leapfrog Nick Pope.

“He’s got the experience from his time at Sheffield [United]. So, he’s got all the experience he needs, he just needs playing time, so if it’s not at Man United, then I think he really needs to go somewhere else. “
