Will they be at Manchester United when the season starts? Here is the latest on the futures of Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard, with the latter having reportedly made his intentions clear to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The 28-year-old has been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation in recent weeks, with rumours in France suggesting that Paris Saint-Germain are trying to sign him. While those reports now appear to be less frequent, new developments seem to explain why.
According to The Athletic, people close to the situation doubt whether Pogba is actually interested in swapping the Premier League for Ligue 1, despite PSG themselves being an attractive option to many world-class players.
The French giants have been able to secure the signatures of Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos in this window, although they might have more work to do if they are to convince Pogba of a move.
With the midfielder having entered the final year of his contract in England and not yet signed a new deal, Les Parisiens are unlikely to give up on the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner any time soon.
The attacking midfielder has returned to the Red Devils from a successful loan spell at West Ham United, during which he scored nine goals in 16 matches, with many tipping him to be moved on permanently ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
He has other plans, however, with The Athletic reporting that Lingard has told Solskjaer he wants to stay at the club this season and fight for a place in the first team.
The England international has played a big role in United's pre-season so far and is likely to be involved in their Premier League opener against Leeds United next Saturday.
