Manchester United face a busy summer as they prepare for their first transfer window under the co-ownership of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his Ineos group.

United may have yet to decide on the future of Erik ten Hag, but the new structure put in place should mean that any potential deals will not be influenced by who the manager is. Therefore, the club's plans for who could be signed and sold should be well underway ahead of the window opening on June 14.

And Gazzetta dello Sport have claimed that Mason Greenwood has agreed to join Juventus after his loan spell at Getafe in 2023/24. However, it is said that the Serie A giants cannot afford the United forward with the club rumoured to want between £35million and £40m.

It is claimed that Juve will offer talented England U-21 international Samuel Iling-Junior to secure a cheaper deal for Greenwood. It is also said that winger Federico Chiesa could also be a possible player used in any potential deal.

Elsewhere, the London Evening Standard are claiming that Chelsea are ready to battle United for the signature of Crystal Palace star Michael Olise. The Blues were heavily linked with the winger last summer before he opted to sign a new deal at Palace.

But the report claims that Chelsea will revisit a move this summer amid reports of a £60m release clause, although the structure of the buy-out fee could mean that he is allowed to leave for less.

In other news, The Athletic report that Barcelona must find €130million before June 30 if they are to make any signings, leading to suggestions that United could revisit a deal for Frenkie de Jong. United were engaged in a protracted transfer saga in the summer of 2022 as they attempted to sign De Jong.

The report claims that the Dutch midfielder could be available for €80m (£68m) this summer, but that fee could drop nearer to the deadline Barcelona have been set. Arsenal have also been linked with the 27-year-old.
