Man Utd transfer round-up: Paul Pogba swap for Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane breaks silence

Manchester United chiefs are under pressure to deliver marquee signings after the Red Devils’ season ended in disappointment this week.

Having seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fall short in the Europa League final with a dramatic loss on penalties to Villarreal, the need for reinforcements is clearer than ever if United are to challenge for the title next season.

England pair Declan Rice and Jadon Sancho have been linked with a move to Old Trafford, while moves across Europe have also been mooted.

A return for Cristiano Ronaldo has become a huge talking point, while a world-class defensive partner for Harry Maguire is a matter of importance for United.

Defensive target Raphael Varane has broken his silence with speculation swirling over his future.

Will we see Ronaldo in a United shirt again? Comment below.

“It is normal and logical to ask the question and for my part, it is normal and logical to focus on the upcoming deadlines.

“We are all human beings. We can think about it. As for my personal case, I am focused on the objectives that we have in the France team, it is not a subject that I will discuss every day in my room at Clairefontaine.

“I am focused on my goal, and now is not the time to discuss it. If I have to talk about it, it will be directly with the people concerned.”
