The latest Man Utd transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Sunday, July 30.
Manchester United could complete the signing of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea by the end of next week, according to the Mail on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho has been interested in the 28-year-old midfielder all summer, though it is reported that Chelsea want to bring in a replacement midfielder before selling Matic.
United will have to pay up to £31m if they want to tempt Anderlecht to sell Leander Dendoncker, according to the Daily Star on Sunday.
The 22-year-old Belgian scored against United in the quarter-final of the Europa League last season, and Anderlecht sporting director Herman van Holsbeeck has said they could sell Dendoncker for around £30m.
He told Het Belang van Limburg: "We want to cherish him, but if a club is willing to pay between €25mi and €35m, we have a problem."
Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have a strong interest in signing 15-year-old Dutch youth defender Melayro Bogarde, nephew of former Chelsea defender Winston Bogarde, say the Observer.
Bogarde plays for Feyenoord, and will be a free agent on May 28 next year when he turns 16.
Ross Barkley is at the centre of a six-team battle for his signature with Tottenham and Manchester City leading the race to sign the Everton midfielder, according to the Daily Star on Sunday.
Everton manager Ronald Koeman said earlier this week that the 23-year-old England international was to leave Goodison Park this summer.
And finally, the Sunday Express speculate that Mourinho has targeted a £90m move to take Gareth Bale to Manchester United but would rather wait until next summer to make it happen.
