Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Saturday, September 26.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Saturday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United handed boost in Dayot Upamecano pursuit?

RB Leipzig have reportedly identified a replacement for Manchester United-linked defender Dayot Upamecano.

The 21-year-old has established himself as one of the world's top prospects over the past couple of seasons, and Upamecano has been widely linked with a host of top European sides.

With Manchester United supposedly looking to bolster their defensive ranks before the transfer window closes on October 5, the Red Devils are thought to be at the head of the queue for Upamecano's signature.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could now look to step up their pursuit of the highly-rated Frenchman, with Croatian outlet Sportske reporting that Leipzig have agreed a deal with Dinamo Zagreb for teenage defender Josko Gvardiol.

The report claims that Leipzig and Zagreb have reached an agreement over a £17m fee for the 18-year-old, who was also on the radar of Leeds United.

While Gvardiol's proposed arrival could see United be given the green light to move for Upamecano, Leipzig manager Julian Nagelsmann has previously insisted that the Frenchman will be staying put in Germany for the time being.

Raul Jimenez 'opens door' to potential Manchester United move

Raul Jimenez has insisted that he would be "very happy" to stay at Wolverhampton Wanderers for the next three years but is "open to everything".

The 29-year-old enjoyed an excellent 2019-20 campaign for Wolves, finding the back of the net on 27 occasions in 55 appearances, in addition to registering 10 assists.

The Mexico international has also started the new season in impressive fashion, scoring in both of his side's Premier League matches against Sheffield United and Manchester City.

Manchester United are said to be admirers as they seek attacking reinforcements, and the centre-forward has suggested that he would be open to leaving Wolves if the right offer arrived.

"I have three more seasons left [on my contract]. If I stay here at Wolves, I'd be very happy. We know that anything can happen and there could be a change. I'm open to everything," said Jimenez while speaking at an event at Mexico's London embassy.

"I already had the luck to play some games [in the Champions League]. It's something incredible and it's in my plans to play again, but first I have to do what I have to do with Wolves."

Jimenez has now scored 46 times in 102 appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
