Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Saturday, August 8.

The transfer speculation surrounding Manchester United continues to gather pace, despite the fact that the Red Devils have still not finished their 2019-20 campaign.

Indeed, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are bidding to win the Europa League, but the club continue to be linked with a number of new players ahead of the 2020-21 season.

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:

Report: Roma revive Chris Smalling interest after successful takeover

Roma are allegedly weighing up a fresh move for Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling after a successful takeover of the club.

The 30-year-old impressed during a season-long loan with the Italian side, making 37 appearances in all competitions.

Roma were unable to agree a permanent deal with United, and as it stands, the former Fulham youngster will be with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side for the start of next season.

Calciomercato, however, suggests that the Giallorossi are ready to revive their interest after the club were sold by former owner James Pallotta in a £533m takeover.

Manchester United 'ready to listen to offers for Jesse Lingard'

Manchester United are reportedly ready to allow Jesse Lingard to leave the club.

The 27-year-old has struggled for form during the 2019-20 campaign, managing just one goal in 22 Premier League appearances.

The England international's existing deal at Old Trafford is due to expire next summer, and according to The Guardian, he will be free to leave ahead of the 2020-21 season for the right price.

A number of clubs are thought to be closely monitoring developments surrounding the attacker, who was on the scoresheet in United's 2-1 win over LASK Linz in the Europa League last time out.

Manchester United hold interest in Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret?

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Manchester United.

David de Gea's drop in form has led to suggestions that the 20-time English champions could be in the market for a new stopper during this summer's transfer window.

Dean Henderson, as it stands, is due to return to Old Trafford this summer, but according to ESPN, club officials are currently contemplating improving their options between the sticks.

The report claims that Meret, who made his debut for Italy last November, has emerged as a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
