It appears there is plenty going on with Manchester United at the moment, according to various reports — although Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure isn’t on the itinerary.

Although Ronaldo has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Napoli throughout the summer, it appears he will be staying at Old Trafford unless there is a major last-minute surprise in this window, according to AS.

The Red Devils reportedly see the forward as a key player both on the pitch and in their economic framework. Manager Erik ten Hag has previously suggested that, despite speculation otherwise, Ronaldo doesn’t really want to leave Man United.

Man United are looking at a number of striking options and reportedly want to bring in VfB Stuttgart striker Sasa Kalajdzic, according to Sky Sports.

The Austria international wants to join Ten Hag’s squad, having entered the final year of his Stuttgart contract and, at 25 years old, Kalajdzic feels that now is the right time to face a new challenge in his career.

Meanwhile, Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot looks ever closer to joining United after his camp had a positive meeting with United director John Murtough. While there is still work to do before an agreement is reached on a salary, talks are expected to continue.

Juventus will reportedly move to sign Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Leandro Paredes if Rabiot departs.
