On the other hand, Tottenham are still interested in Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher. Chelsea are reportedly ready to consider offers for their midfielder. Tottenham were reportedly set to purchase him in the summer transfer window but his good form led to Chelsea blocking the sale. He has also captained Mauricio Pochettino’s side in some games. Pochettino has decided to stay away from the decision-making on the midfielder’s future and told in a press conference that it was upto the player and club.

According to transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, Donny van de Beek is already in Frankfurt and has completed his medical tests. The Bundesliga side have agreed a loan deal with Manchester United, and a buy option clause is not mandatory.

Another United player Jadon Sancho, who is also out of favour, could face the exit soon. According to The Sun, he could return to the Bundesliga, with RB Leipzig eyeing his signature.

The 23-year-old has been out of favour and has not featured for United since the end of August. The reason for his absence has been credited to a fallout with manager Erik ten Hag. Meanwhile, the Dutchman has said that it is due to his poor training performances. But Sancho responded on social media, stating that he was being made into a ‘scapegoat’. He is not expected to return to the squad in the near future, atleast if Ten Hag remains at the helm.
