Manchester United fans are glued to their phones awaiting transfer news of Erik ten Hag’s first signing.
Darwin Nunes and Jurrien Timber are two key targets for the Red Devils while ex-Ajax men Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong are other players said to interest the new manager.
In terms of outgoings, Paul Pogba has joined Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic in departing after their contracts expired.
But Marcus Rashford has been discussed in terms of a move abroad, or even to Tottenham, with United demanding £80million for their homegrown forward.

Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal has told Jurrien Timber to only sign for a club where he will play regularly, after reports of the defender mulling over a move to Old Trafford.
The former Red Devils manager said on Tuesday:
“I think a player of his quality can play in the Premier League.
That is not a problem. If he has to make this big step now, that’s the question.
“[If he does not play] then he is not so wise, I think. He has to play.”
Football agent Roberto De Fanti has claimed Tottenham, plus clubs in Spain and Italy, are interested in signing Marcus Rashford.
United would reportedly demand £80million for the academy product and are said to be confident that no club will meet this price tag.
Furthermore, he tells Caught Offside that a move to Spurs would be “impossible” despite recent discussions between the player’s camp and the north London club.
