A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.
Wednesday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:
Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze, according to a report.
The 21-year-old has established himself as a regular member of the Villarreal first team in recent seasons, making 37 La Liga appearances in 2019-20 and featuring in all but one of their matches so far this term.
Chukwueze's form in those games has drawn the attention of a host of Europe's top clubs, with Real Madrid thought to be leading the race for his signature.
La Razon claims that Madrid are eyeing a double swoop for Villarreal pair Chukwueze and Pau Torres and are willing to offer €65m (£57.9m) plus a player in exchange.
However, they could face particularly fierce competition for Chukwueze, with as many as six Premier League clubs among those also keeping tabs on the winger.
Manchester United are thought to view the Nigeria international as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho, while Chelsea, Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Leicester City have also been credited with an interest.
Man United are considered the biggest rivals to Madrid for his signature, although Villarreal are thought to be holding out for his full €80m (£71.3m) release clause to be triggered.
Chukwueze has scored 13 goals and assisted 12 more in 90 appearances for the Yellow Submarine.
Lyon are reportedly preparing for the possibility of both Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele leaving the club during the January transfer window.
Memphis will be out of contract at the end of this season and is wanted by Barcelona, whose manager Ronald Koeman has made no secret of his desire to bring his compatriot to Camp Nou.
The player himself has publicly hinted at a move in January, when Lyon could look to cash in on their captain rather than losing him for free next summer.
Le 10 Sport reports that the Ligue 1 outfit fear that Dembele could leave too, with Manchester United and West Ham United among the clubs to have been linked with the former Celtic striker.
Lyon have begun to identify possible replacements for the attacking duo, with Reims forward Boulaye Dia and Leicester City outcast Islam Slimani thought to be at the top of their list.
Dia's contract with Reims is due to expire in 2022, while Slimani would be available as a free agent next summer or for a cut-price fee in January.
