Look back over the latest Man Utd transfer gossip, injury updates and breaking news from Old Trafford throughout the day.
Manchester United insist there is nothing in reports from Portugal that Wolves striker Raul Jimenez is ‘on the way’ to the club this summer.
Reports this week had suggested the impressive forward was close to signing for United, but MEN Sport understand the reports are inaccurate and the 29-year-old is not close to joining.

A report in Germany this week claimed United submitted a £90million offer for priority target Sancho, but the club denied any bid had been made on the first day of the summer transfer window and Dortmund figures have privately admitted the same.
The MEN understands United believe Dortmund are attempting to arouse interest in Sancho from other clubs to accelerate a deal before their pre-season fixtures start.
