Manchester United are said to be on red alert with Erling Haaland reportedly set to leave Dortmund. Meanwhile Man Utd’s move for Kieran Trippier has been put on hold as they await the result of his betting ban appeal.
SEAGULLS READY TO PINCH CAIC
Moises Caicedo is tipped for Brighton after Manchester United reportedly ended their pursuit of the Ecuador teen sensation.
The Manchester Evening News claim signing the Independiente de Valle midfielder, 19, became “too messy” because of many intermediaries. Now Premier League rivals Brighton are said to be in “advanced talks” for a player who already has four full caps.
BISHOP ON MOVE
United are looking to loan goalkeeper Nathan Bishop out to the EFL this month.
The stopper, 21, signed from Southend last year and then put pen to paper on a contract extension on Monday, tying him down at Old Trafford until 2023.
With Bishop behind David De Gea, Dean Henderson and Sergio Romero in the pecking order – and battling with Paul Woolston and Ondrej Mastny in the Under-23s – the club are trying to find somewhere for him to build experience.
And it is thought United want to send the former England U20 international to the Championship or League One.
Meanwhile , Lyon have loaned former Manchester United and Arsenal target Moussa Dembele to Atletico Madrid for the rest of the season – with an option to buy for around £31million.
The ex-Fulham and Celtic striker, 24, replaces former Chelsea hitman Diego Costa, 32, whose Atletico contract has been terminated early.
