In the realm of football's grand theater, Manchester United takes center stage once again, ready to script a mesmerizing tale of ambition and persistence. Armed with an unyielding determination, they unleash an improved third bid, a lavish offering of £55 million, in their audacious pursuit of the mercurial midfielder, Mason Mount.

According to The Sun, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is set to sign a new long-term contract with a significant pay cut.

Manchester United is currently chasing a goalkeeper with Crystal Palace's Jack Butland "definitely has legs," according to journalist Dean Jones. The Red Devils are searching for a backup goalkeeper to first-choice shot-stopper David de Gea after Martin Dubravka was recalled from his loan spell early by Newcastle United.

After the game, Erik ten Hag claimed that United could have certainly dropped points in this encounter if not for some lucky intervention.
