EXCL: TRUTH about Lopetegui to Man Utd links, 2024 transfer still ON for Osimhen, Liverpool unhappy with loan deal, plus latest Vlahovic rumours
Today's transfer column, featuring big stories at Man Utd, Liverpool and Juventus.
Is Julen Lopetegui really set for the Man Utd job?
I wanted to start today by addressing some of the rumours about Erik ten Hag and a possible replacement being lined up by Manchester United, with some credible sources suggesting Julen Lopetegui is gaining strength as a candidate to take over at Old Trafford.
I don’t want to deny or talk down any colleagues and the information they’re getting, but all I can say is that I’m not aware of any contact between Man United and Lopetegui at this stage. There’s not a lot more I can say other than what I’ve previously reported, which is that United continue to back Ten Hag, even if there is an awareness that things have to improve.
