Man Utd ‘submit opening bid’ for perfect Kobbie Mainoo partner as INEOS given hope of deal

Manchester United have submitted an opening bid for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Manuel Ugarte, according to reports. The Red Devils are eyeing a new partner for Kobbie Mainoo as a priority in the summer transfer window, alongside a new centre-back and striker, with Casemiro set to depart.

Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite and Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee have been mooted as INEOS’ top targets for the latter two positions.

The report adds that Ugarte has drawn interest from England, Italy and Germany as he potentially seeks an escape route from the Parc des Princes.

And it’s claimed that United have already tabled a bid for his signature, swiftly rejected by the French champions, who deemed it lower than their valuation.
