Man Utd 'linked' with January move for Joao Palhinha

Man Utd 'linked' with January move for Joao Palhinha

The transfer expert has the latest.

Fabrizio Romano has given Manchester United fans an insight into the club's January transfer plans.

The Red Devils had a busy summer, bringing in the likes of Andre Onana from Inter Milan, Mason Mount from Chelsea and Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta.

While Erik ten Hag sealed a deadline day transfer for Turkish goalkeeper Altay Bayindir and loan deals for both Sergio Reguilon and Sofyan Amrabat.

But despite spending over £160 million this summer, the Old Trafford club are already looking ahead to the January transfer window.

That's according to Romano, who claims that United "have been linked as suitors" for Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha when the window re-opens next year.

However, the transfer guru has played down the Premier League side's chances of signing Palhinha, believing Bayern Munich will reignite their pursuit of the 28-year-old after failing to sign him at the last minute this summer.

Providing an update on the situation, Romano told Caught Offside: “As I previously reported, Bayern Munich came very close to signing Joao Palhinha this summer, only for the deal to fall through late on as Fulham couldn’t find a replacement, and now there’s been further speculation about the Portuguese midfielder’s future.”

“I’m aware that Manchester United have been linked as suitors for Palhinha when the transfer window opens again in January, but I’m not a fan of commenting on rumours about something that is still four months away. Nothing is going on now, and also Man United just spent money on another defensive midfielder with the Sofyan Amrabat deal.

“I think Bayern will try again for Palhinha but again, it’s too early to say for sure, January is far.”
