Manchester United transfer news LIVE Raphael Varane ‘close’ to Man Utd move in ‘next few hours’

Manchester United lost their first game of pre-season 4-2 to QPR at the weekend.

Jesse Lingard opened the scoring early, but the hosts eventually took control of the fixture, which meant Anthony Elanga’s goal was nothing but a consolation effort. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lavished the praise on the youngster after the game, though.

The Reds will play Brentford on Wednesday evening as their pre-season schedule intensifies.

In more transfer news, Daniel James has been linked with an exit from United after Jadon Sancho finally arrived in Manchester, but reports say the Welshman could soon receive a new contract as it’s said that Solskjaer won’t allow him to leave this summer.

It’s believed that James is viewed as an important squad member, with the United boss building his side for a title challenge.
