Man Utd Transfer News LIVE: Deal completed, Arsenal's Sanchez latest, deadline day updates

First deal of day done for Matty Willock

10:00: Manchester United have confirmed they have sent Matty Willock on loan to FC Utrecht.

The 21-year-old is yet to make his first-team debut for the Reds but trained with Jose Mourinho's side towards the end of last season.

He even made it on the bench for the Premier League games against West Brom in April and Crystal Palace in May.

Willock joined United in 2012 and established himself as a regular starter for the Under-18s before making the step up to the Reserves.

He scored a dramatic last-minute winner at Anfield against Liverpool in last term's Premier League 2 fixture and played in the opening two games of this campaign for Ricky Sbragia's side.

A club statement read: “Everyone at the club wishes Matty a successful season in Holland.”

Bookmakers Paddy Power have dramatically halved the odds on Alexis Sanchez joining Manchester United today – from 10/1 to 5/1 – after a four-figure bet in a Manchester store this morning.

United have been loosely linked with the winger all summer, and were said to be revitalising their interest in Inter’s Ivan Perisic.

But they could instead push for a dramatic swoop for Sanchez, ahead of local rivals City.

09:10: Manchester United could still sign Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic before tonight's deadline.

Perisic has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United all summer, with Jose Mourinho desperate to add another winter to his squad.

United’s pursuit of the Croatia international has cooled in recent weeks due to the early season form of Anthony Martial.

But Sky Sports reporter Alan Irwin admits a deal could still happen before tonight’s deadline, despite talk of Perisic signing a new deal at Inter Milan.

"Mourinho had his targets and has pretty much achieved them all,” Irwin told Sky Sports.

“He did also want a wide player in Ivan Perisic, and that may still go through.”

09:05: The future of Manchester City rebel Jadon Sancho looks to have been resolved.

The highly-rated teenage prodigy has barely turned up for training in August, and has been ignoring City’s attempts to get in contact, according to the Telegraph.

Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Red Bull Leipzig were among the clubs monitoring Sancho’s situation.

But The Mirror claim Borussia Dortmund are close to agreeing a deadline day deal.

08:30: Sky Sports have this morning suggested Manchester United could sign Riyad Mahrez today.
