FRENKIE DE PROFIT

MANCHESTER UNITED will have to pay more than £50m if they want to sign Ajax’s midfield talent Frenkie De Jong.

The 30-year-old can leave on a free next summer and will be able to start negotiating a deal away from Old Trafford with foreign clubs in January.

PEP-PED TO NIC

MANCHESTER UNITED and Arsenal look set to miss out on Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, according to reports.

It is understood Bayern Munich are plotting a January move for the striker.

RED ALERT

MANCHESTER UNITED will be on red alert after Toby Alderweireld admitted contract negotiations with Tottenham have stalled.

The Spurs defender, 29, was targeted by United in the summer transfer window but the Red Devils missed out on landing him.
