With Ander Herrera deep in contract talks and Philippe Coutinho said to be a target, here are Saturday's Manchester United transfer rumours.
Coutinho is said to be at "rock bottom" at Barcelona according to The Daily Express, having started only nine league games this season, and United are reportedly preparing to bid for the former Liverpool man.
The Brazilian midfielder is understood to be available in the January transfer window if a club meets the asking price.
The Daily Express also reports Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini is a target for both United and Arsenal during January.
Pellegrini came through the youth system at Roma before moving to Sassuolo for two years, and returning to the Stadio Olimpico in 2017.
The 22-year-old reportedly has a £27m release clause in his deal with the Serie A side, but Italian outlet Il Messeggaro suggest he is in "no rush" to leave Roma.
Manchester United's potential new manager Mauricio Pochettino will not be allowed to leave Tottenham even if they are offered £50m to prise him to Old Trafford, according to The Sun.
The newspaper reports Daniel Levy is desperate to keep hold of the Argentinian, who has led Spurs to Champions League qualification in both of their last two seasons.
