Unlike their rivals, the Red Devils have not brought in many star names with only Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk being the stand out name which includes ex-Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant.

But Jose Mourinho looks unlikely to have any extra additions to his squad for the new season.

Manchester United are trying to hijack Tottenham's attempts to sign Layvin Kurzawa after holding talks with the £22m Paris Saint-Germain full-back, according to reports via the Metro.

However, left-back has also been a problem area for United as Ashley Young has been forced to deputise in recent seasons and with the England global now 33, Kurzawa could be viewed as the ideal long-term replacement.

The spacecraft and its suite of delicate instruments will be protected from the sun's extreme heat by a carbon fiber heat shield . This will be within 6 million kilometres of the sun's surface, closer than any other spacecraft has been before.

He joined the Parisians from Monaco in 2015 but struggled for playing time at the Parc Des Pricess last term - featuring just 20 times in the French League.

Tuchel would like to keep Kurzawa, who is keen to work with the new coach, but the source has said Henrique's priority is to sign Juventus' Alex Sandro, who already has a loose agreement to join the club.

Henrique wants to sell Kurzawa for the most lucrative transfer fee and use that money to secure Sandro before the transfer window closes in France on August 31.

Kurzawa memorably became the first defender in Champions League history to score a hat trick, when Les Parisiens played Anderlecht in the 17/18 group phase, but has somewhat failed to convince a substantial portion of the PSG fanbase and, indeed, former manager Unai Emery, with Presnel Kimpembe often being preferred in the past in his compatriot's position.
