FONTEManchester United remain in the hunt for Southampton captain Jose Fonte.

The Daily Record says Fonte, the subject of a £9million offer from Everton earlier in the summer transfer window, has asked Southampton to honour a gentleman’s agreement that he be allowed to leave the South Coast club should the 32-year-old be offered significantly superior financial terms elsewhere.

Earlier this month the Portugal international stated that he felt “flattered to be associated with a club like Manchester United“.

In an effort to make room for the new central defender, United have been working on a deal to sell Marcos Rojo to Valencia as one replacement for Arsenal-bound Shkodran Mustafi.

Rojo rejected a lucrative offer to join Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG earlier in the window in favour of remaining in European football.
