Transfer News: Manchester United unlikely to sign midfielder despite looking at Declan Rice and Ruben Neves Speaking on the Football Terrace podcast (h/t Express), Eurosport’s Dean Jones spoke about Manchester United and claimed that it was unlikely that they sign a new midfielder during this window.
The club has already seen Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho join their ranks this summer. And fans would now be dreaming of another big name addition at the club before deadline day.
But according to Jones, it is unlikely that the Red Devils sign a midfielder because of Paul Pogba’s stay. He does add that the club not signing another big name would not necessarily indicate the lack of finances.
Paul Pogba is a key player for Manchester United. “Because Pogba hasn’t gone, and isn’t going to go, I don’t think United make a ‘significant’ signing in midfield. They do have provisions to do so.”

“I’ve talked many times on here about how they’ve enquired about Camavinga, they’ve rebuilt relations with Neves and those things are true. They’ve looked at Declan Rice, but they’ve decided he’s too expensive.”
