Manchester United transfer news and rumours: January transfer window 2021
All the latest Manchester United transfer news, rumours and gossip in the 2021 winter window.
Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth told The Transfer Show on Monday:
“There are players Manchester United would like to see leave the club this window – you’ve got Sergio Romero, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Odion Ighalo who would want to know where his future lies, and finally there’s Jesse Lingard.
“His year option was triggered at the back end of last year, so runs until the summer of 2022. His representatives are talking to other clubs, but no decision has been made by either Lingard or the club as to whether he would leave.
“That’s because there is a great rapport between the club and Lingard, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Lingard, so they want what is best for Lingard.”

Who might be leaving?
Sky Sports News’ Dharmesh Sheth:
“I think it’s very unlikely Paul Pogba leaves in January unless something monumental was to happen. But Manchester United, since Mino Raiola said an exit was likely in the summer (not January), they haven’t said anything. Is that because they haven’t offered him a new contract?
“As far as I’m aware, they haven’t and he has 18 months left. Pogba, I was told, expected United to open contract talks with him at the end of last season. Those talks have not materialised.
“Now we’re in a situation where United realistically have two transfer windows to get money for him, or risk losing him for a second time for no money at all.”
