Monday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Adama Traore, Kevin Phillips, Phil Jones

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Monday, October 26.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Monday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United, Liverpool 'learn asking price for Adama Traore'

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly placed a £90m valuation on attacker Adama Traore.

The 24-year-old is yet to score or provide an assist in seven appearances for Wolves this season but was in impressive form during the 2019-20 campaign, contributing six goals and 12 assists in 54 outings.

Both Manchester United and Liverpool have been credited with an interest in the former Barcelona youngster, who has a contract at Molineux until the summer of 2023.

However, according to Calciomercato, Wolves have signalled that they would not be prepared to sell the Spain international for a fee of under £90m.

Traore has not started any of his side's last three Premier League matches and only played the final 22 minutes of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Barca are also believed to be closely monitoring the attacker as they consider re-signing him.

Kevin Phillips urges West Ham United to move for "unbelievable" Phil Jones

Former Premier League striker Kevin Phillips has claimed that Manchester United defender Phil Jones "fits the bill" for West Ham United and has urged the Hammers to move for him in January.

Jones has been left out of United's Premier League and Champions League squads, suggesting that he might have played his last game for the 20-time English champions.

The 28-year-old still two and a half years left to run on his contract at Old Trafford but could be allowed to leave either on loan or on a permanent basis at the start of 2021.

Phillips has said that the Englishman is capable of being "unbelievable" and believes that he would be an ideal signing for the capital club.

"Phil has come under criticism from all quarters over the years and what I liked about him is his attitude," he told Football Insider. "He just gets on with it. He is what it is. At times he will make mistakes but at other times he will be unbelievable.

"For Phil, getting out of United would be the best for him. He needs to go and play somewhere where he feels wanted. Staying in the Premier League will be a priority for him. He could turn out to be a signing for someone that might help them stay in the Premier League or push for Europe.

"You would be getting a player that would want to prove a point after not being named in the Manchester United squad. It looks like David Moyes is looking for English defenders. I know he has signed [Craig] Dawson on loan but Phil Jones fits the bill for them."

Jones, who played under Moyes at Old Trafford, has made 224 appearances for United since arriving from Blackburn Rovers in 2011.
