Here is a roundup of the top Manchester United news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed today –

Manchester United are expected to make an offer for Genoa goalkeeper Josep Martinez today as they look to provide competition for number one Andre Onana, according to Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri.

Manchester United are expected to make many acquisitions during the summer transfer window, and a new stopper may be one of the top objectives for manager Erik ten Hag as he seeks to add some depth to that squad.

Andre Onana stole the headlines alot over is first season in the Premier League as there was some very good performances from the big man – but some very dodgy performances in that Red Devils shirt.

Erik Te Hag knows that he needs to add some more quality to the side this transfer window and As per Belgian Journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Manchester United are preparing an official bid for Genoa goalkeeper Josep Martinez

Martinez had a very impressive season with Genoa last year and is now regarded as one of the best stoppers in Seria A – with the likes of Inter Milan, Lazio and Juventus all also keeping a very close eye on his situation this summer.

But Manchester United may have waited too long to make their approach, though. According to Corriere dello Sport, Inter Milan is close to reaching an agreement with Genoa on an agreement of £12.5 million

Martinez is a quality stopper and made a big impression for Genoa last season – but we are fully expecting him to stay in Seria A as he does not fancy moving Leagues and sitting on the bench.

Despite some dodgy performances last season – Onana is one of the best goalkeepers in the game and he is the man that will be number one for Manchester United  next season.

So even though Martinez would be a good signing – he will probably stay put or go to Milan.

ROQUE OFFER MADE –

Manchester United have reportedly submitted an opening £29.6 million bid for Vitor Roque but Barcelona are holding out for closer to £50m

Manchester United are expected to make many acquisitions during the summer transfer window, and a new attacker may be one of the top objectives for manager Erik ten Hag as he seeks to add some more goals to that attack.

United really struggled in the Premier League last season and had an awful campaign, which was only saved by that stunning FA Cup win over Champions Man City, which also kept Erik ten Hag in his job.

Now, according to Manchester Evening News. Manchester United have contacted Barcelona in hope that they can convince the Spanish giants to led go of Vitor Roque this transfer window with an offer of £29.6 million

Roque, 19, enjoyed a positive start to life at Barcelona as he scored twice in his first five La Liga matches but saw his form as well as minutes drastically dip thereafter, but He fell out of Xavi’s favour and although the Spaniard has been sacked by the Catalans, Roque may be surplus to requirements for Barca as they continue to be under tremendous financial pressure.

However – the reports do go on to say that Barcelona are hoping for a fee of £50 million for the South American star.

Should Man United sign Roque?

Look, Barca signed the player in hope that he could be the next big thing, he certainly has the talent and potential to go on and develop into a world class act, it is just a case of whether he has the mental strength to do that.

If Manchester United can get the lad for a real bargain – he would be worth the risk – but spending £50 million is crazy as the club need to add some proven, experienced players to the side that can make an impact.

As we said – get Roque for the right price and he would be worth the risk.

ZIRKZEE TALKS HELD –

Manchester United have opened concrete talks with Kia Joorabchian, the agent of Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee, over a summer move for the Dutchman

Having had one of the clubs worst Premier League seasons and then shocking Man City in that FA Cup final – there has been alot of speculation about who Man United could sign this summer window

Erik Ten Hag is keen to add a striker to his impressive United attack at some point in the coming transfer window as that is an area that needs to be improved on with Rasmus Hojlund not hitting the goals that the club would have liked.

That has led to many reports in the media that Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in signing the striker this summer but recent reports has revealed it is ‘now or never’ if they want to sign Bologna forward Joshua Zirkzee.

According to Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg United have now opened talks with the striker about a move to Old Trafford this summer as they seek to fend off a whole load of clubs to try and get a deal done.

Zirkzee is a talented young striker – but is he any better than Rasmus Hojlund? probably not. but he would add some more depth to that attack.

United really struggled for goals at times last season and need to sign players that will be value for money – but will also add a goal threat to that attack – and tat is what Zirkzee could potentially do.

He has a big future in the game like Hojlund – so he could be a decent long-term investment if he is able to handle the Premier League and the pressure that comes along with playing for a club like Manchester United.
