Manchester United's six man January transfer shortlist 'revealed' and more rumours

Manchester United have a six-man transfer shortlist heading into the January window, according to reports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to bolster his squad over the next few weeks and a new midfield signing is believed to be high on the Norwegian’s agenda following United’s latest injury setbacks.

United are considering enhancing their squad following injuries to midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, and could recruit a new midfielder in the winter window having missed out in the summer.

The Evening Standard suggest Sean Longstaff, James Maddison, Declan Rice, Gedson Fernandes, Emre Can and Christian Eriksen are all under consideration as United look to strengthen.

The MEN understands Maddison and Rice are targets, while United looked at both Longstaff and Eriksen in the summer.

According to another report, United coach Michael Carrick is supposedly keen for the club to sign Newcastle’s Longstaff. The Evening Standard claim that it’s Carrick who believes the Newcastle man is the right signing.

The Magpies demanded £50million for his services in the summer and United baulked at that valuation so there would need to be a revised price for any deal to take place.

Finally, United are reportedly facing a battle to sign Eriksen from Tottenham, with Inter Milan said to have entered the race to sign the Dane.

Eriksen has indicated he would like to leave Spurs, with his contract expiring at the end of the season. United considered a move for Eriksen last summer but Solskjaer felt the Dane would have preferred a move to Spain instead.

The Daily Mail claim Inter, PSG and Juventus all want to sign Eriksen, though it’s reported that they all want to wait until the summer to land him for free.
