Manchester United continue to be linked with potential new signings this summer.

United will be busy looking ahead to the new campaign which will see them compete in the Premier League and Europa League. Victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup saw the Reds qualify for Europe despite their eighth-place finish in the top flight.

Erik ten Hag's future as manager has been the subject of speculation for the majority of the season. Despite the uncertainty, United are seemingly pressing ahead with acquiring potential transfer targets if the latest reports are to be believed.

MEN Sport understands that only four United players have not been put on the transfer list by Ineos Group this summer. Kobbie Mainoo, Andre Onana, Rasmus Hojlund and Alejandro Garnacho are the only players not to be available for transfer.

United are still being linked with possible new signings, though. There is speculation of moves for Crystal Palace star Michael Olise and Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite. According to talkSPORT, the Reds are "confident" they can agree deals to sign both players this summer.

The report claims that United would need to spend £60 million in order to sign Olise from Palace. Branthwaite, meanwhile, is reported to be available for £40 million this summer, meaning United would need to spend £100 million to bring the duo to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, A fresh report has claimed that the Reds are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain star Xavi Simons.

Simons has spent this season on loan with RB Leipzig and scored 10 goals with 15 assists in all competitions. The versatile forward is expected to return to PSG this summer, but there are rumours he could be sent on loan once again.

According to Mundo Deportivo, United are one of several clubs interested in signing Simons on loan for next season. The Reds are joined by Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Newcastle while Leipzig are also said to be keen to re-sign the 21-year-old.

However, the report goes on to say that PSG may want to keep Simons at the club rather than loan him out once again. It has been claimed that Simons himself is waiting for the opportunity to return to Barcelona, where he spent time at the La Masia academy earlier in his career.
