There is one week before the transfer window closes and Manchester United should not be closed mind towards adding more players.

Tom Heaton, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane have all joined, although none of them have yet started a Premier League game so far, two matches in.

While we certainly don’t expect a flourish of late activity like last year, there are some moves United could make.

Here is a look at four players United could still sign before the deadline…

Kieran Trippier

At the moment it seems United are content with Diogo Dalot as back-up to Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back. But that could change.

Kieran Trippier is a superior player, more experienced, and could offer greater competition at the position.

If there is a chance United could get a late deal done, this one could happen. Trippier could even sign late on deadline day, there would be no issues with visas or paperwork which held up the Varane deal.

The Telegraph has reported that Trippier wants to return to the UK and he was prepared to wait out a move to United. This move could quickly accelerate.

Ruben Neves

Unlike the quickly denied links between United and Aurelien Tchouameni, there has been no rebuttal of reports linking United to Ruben Neves.

Neves has Premier League experience and Wolves are willing to cash in at the right price.


The midfielder has the passing and tackling ability to add to United’s midfield in both phases of the game.

ESPN reported at the end of July that United had spoken with Neves’ representatives.

Eduardo Camavinga

French youngster Eduardo Camavinga seems to be coming to the end of the road at Rennes.

Camavinga’s contract expires next summer and Rennes do not wish to lose him on a free transfer.

L’Equipe report Camavinga has played his last game for the club, although his next destination is unclear.

The Guardian reported last month that United are keen on Camavinga, but he may prefer to hold out for a move to PSG or Real Madrid.

Saul Niguez

United are linked to Saul Niguez every summer, will 2021 be the season a move finally gets done?

The Guardian report United hold strong interest in signing Saul on loan as he is out of favour with Atletico.

At 26, Saul’s best years could still be ahead of him and he would add real depth to United’s midfield.

A loan deal could be too good for United to turn down for a player who in previous summers has been unattainable.
