Manchester United transfer news RECAP Erik Ten Hag holds transfer meeting as McClaren deal ‘nears’

Manchester United’s U18s won the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday night.

United took the lead through captain Rhys Bennett in the first half, but Nottingham Forest scored an equaliser on the stroke of half-time. United responded to that disappointment with two Alejandro Garnacho goals in front of 67,492 at Old Trafford.

United last won the Youth Cup in 2011. Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Ravel Morrison featured in that side, but the club’s latest youngsters, Garnacho, Kobbie Mainoo, Dan Gore and Charlie McNeill, are now in the history books.

United extended their rich history in the prestigious competition after a memorable campaign led by manager Travis Binnion.

In transfer news, United have been linked to midfielder Frenkie de Jong this week and the Manchester Evening News understands the club have contacted Barcelona about De Jong’s potential availability.

De Jong is contracted to Barcelona until 2026, having joined the Catalan outfit from Ajax for £65million in 2019.

A recap of the day’s United news.
