Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Wednesday, February 17.
The January transfer window has now closed, leaving Manchester United to begin looking forward to the summer for their next round of recruitment.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.
Wednesday morning’s Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:
Norwich City have reportedly slapped a £35m price tag on the head of Max Aarons amid interest from Bayern Munich.
The 21-year-old remained with the Canaries over the summer transfer window despite their relegation from the Premier League and boasts one goal and three assists in 29 Championship appearances this term.
However, it remains to be seen whether Aarons will seek pastures new even if Norwich are immediately promoted back to the big time, and a recent report stated that Bayern are stepping up their interest in the right-back.
Now, Sky Sports News claims that the Champions League winners are now in talks with the Canaries over a deal for the defender, but they would have to fork out £30m to £35m to secure his signature.
The report also adds that Norwich would prefer to negotiate in the summer rather than during a busy Championship campaign, and Manchester United are also keeping a close eye on developments.
Aarons has just under three-and-a-half years left to run on his current deal with Daniel Farke’s side.
Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala is reportedly ready to end any speculation over his future by penning a new long-term deal with the Bundesliga champions.
The 17-year-old linked up with Bayern’s youth teams in the summer of 2019 after leaving Chelsea, and he has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with Hansi Flick’s side this season.
Musiala has made 23 appearances for the senior team in all competitions and boasts three goals in the German top flight, leading to talk of a possible move back to England with Liverpool or Manchester United.
However, The Guardian reports that Bayern are desperate to keep hold of the England Under-21s international, and they have made significant progress in talks over a new five-year deal until 2026.
The report adds that Musiala will commit his future to Bayern when he turns 18 on the 26th of this month, with his current deal due to expire in 2022, and he could pocket up to £100k a week in Bavaria if he meets performance-related targets.
The playmaker has already turned out for both England and Germany at youth level, with his national allegiance at senior level yet to be determined.
