Manchester United made the headlines yesterday as they secured their first major signing of the ongoing summer transfer window.

The Red Devils announced the purchase of midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax. He has put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal with the option for another 12 months.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa have also made their first signing of the summer. The west Midlands outfit confirmed the arrival of right-back Matty Cash from Nottingham Forest earlier today.

Let’s have a look at the top transfer stories at the moment.

Top Transfer Stories:

Arsenal have already reached an agreement with Real Madrid over re-signing Dani Ceballos on loan. The Spanish midfielder has now arrived in the English capital to complete the necessary formalities. He will, however, have to quarantine for two weeks as part of the UK government guidelines for new players arriving from Spain (Standard Sport).

Manchester United are understood to have made an interesting proposal to sign Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon on a permanent basis. The Red Devils currently have Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams as the regular left-back options, but it is suggested that Reguilon would be assured a starting place, if he moves to Old Trafford (AS).

Chelsea have reached an agreement to sign Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen. They have agreed on a club-record £89m deal for the Germany international and will pay an initial £72m upfront to the Bundesliga outfit. He has yet to undergo his medical due to international duty, but could go through the tests on Saturday, if he receives permission from DFB (Sky in Germany).

Elsewhere, Chelsea have identified goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as a potential competitor to Kepa Arrizabalaga. However, they won’t get the Senegal international on the cheap with Rennes said to demand at least £30m upfront. Ideally, the French outfit are looking for an overall package of £40m for the 28-year-old (The Telegraph).

Liverpool forward Harry Wilson has been loaned out to Hull City, Derby County and Bournemouth over the past two years. The Merseyside giants are not keen on another temporary deal for their graduate this summer. The Reds are prepared to sanction his permanent departure, should any club meet their £20m asking price (Liverpool Echo).
