Man Utd in new transfer blow as £34m Porto midfielder Vitinha prepares for medical at PSG

The blow comes amid fears United have had a slow start to the transfer window while their rivals secure huge signings.

transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano reported that PSG’s move to Vitinha is underway and the paperwork and medical are now the final parts to be completed.

Romano also hinted that Luis Campos, the new football advisor at PSG, was an important factor behind the deal.

He tweeted: “Paris Saint-Germain has already prepared for medical tests and paperwork to finalize the Vitinha deal with FC Porto. Deal wanted by Luís Campos, his first signing will be Portuguese.”

It is expected to be Porto’s second major departure this week, with Arsenal on the verge of securing the services of talented midfielder Fabio Viera.

And it means Manchester United are yet to make a huge signing while all their rivals improve their squad.

Premier League champions Manchester City this week confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Erling Haaland for £51million.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have spent the money to recruit £85million striker Darwin Nunez into the star-studded Anfield line-up.

Earlier this week, United legend and pundit Gary Neville expressed his concerns about the club’s slow start into the window.

He tweeted: “I know early in the window but it’s worrying that United are struggling to get business done.

“The others seem solid and ready but United can’t move.

“ETH [Erik ten Hag] needs his group as fast as possible to form it. Being late will only make it harder for him!”
