Premier League transfer news live, today! Latest updates on the summer window

  Premier League transfer news live, today! Latest updates on the summer window We are set for a very busy summer of transfer activity, as the latest transfer news keeps flooding in and plenty of big names are expected to be on the move in the coming months. Your browser does not support this video [ VIDEO: Premier League analysis ] The 2022 summer transfer window opens on June 10 and closes at 6pm ET on September 1. With Erling Haaland already signing for Manchester City, Kylian Mbappe staying at PSG (for now), plus Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool — and plenty of other superstars in demand and contemplating moves — this feels like it will be a summer like no other.

Manchester United welcome Spanish side Rayo Vallecano to Old Trafford for their final preseason game ahead of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

United have enjoyed a solid summer under new boss Erik ten Hag, with wins over Liverpool, Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace in Thailand and Australia, before losing 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in Oslo on July 30.

Rayo's visit to Manchester is Ten Hag's final chance to assess his squad ahead of their campaign opener at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on August 7.

Cristiano Ronaldo's return to the United squad is the big pre-game story, despite speculation surrounding his future at the club, with the 37-year-old yet to feature in preseason.

Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, was pictured in the car driven by Ronaldo entering United's training base.

Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary from Old Trafford.

Man United vs. Rayo live updates, highlights from preseason

25 Mins: Lisandro Martinez gets across quickly to snuff out former United man Radamel Falcao before Garner picks up a booking for a late tackle.

18 Mins: Christian Eriksen looks to open the Rayo defence with a superb long pass before Unai Lopez is booked for a cynical pull on James Garner.

Dimitrievski then almost gifts Chong a chance with a poor clearance but the Rayo defence recover and clear their lines.

Manchester United transfer news, live! Latest reports, rumors, updates

  Manchester United transfer news, live! Latest reports, rumors, updates Manchester United transfer news is always a busy industry in the summer months and this summer will see it at full volume under new manager Erik ten Hag. Again, not great vibes around Ronaldo right now. That said, the report states that ETH could hand Ronaldo the captaincy and wants him to lead a new era at Old Trafford. We have no doubt that Ronaldo will end up in MLS one day, and probably in Miami, but right now it seems like he will remain in Manchester.

15 Mins: Highly rated Alejandro Garancho has carried the bulk of United's early threat and his clever flick puts Tahith Chong but the Dutchman's shot is easily gathered by Rayo keeper Stole Dimitrievski.

12 Mins: Chance for Ronaldo as Donny van de Beek wins possession high up for United but the hosts No.7 blasts well over the top.

10 Mins: The United 'supporting cast' are in attendance at Old Trafford

5 Mins: Really positive start from Rayo as they spring in behind United full back Ethan Laird and force a smart early stop from Tom Heaton.

KICK OFF: WE ARE UNDERWAY AT OLD TRAFFORD!!!

5 Mins to KO: Ten Hag confirms Ronaldo plan against Rayo Vallecano

  Is Sir Alex Ferguson returning to Manchester United? Legendary manager linked with role after Cristiano Ronaldo talks Is Sir Alex Ferguson returning to Manchester United? Legendary manager linked with role after Cristiano Ronaldo talksThe Scottish manager led the Red Devils for a remarkable 27 years and won 13 Premier League titles in the process.

With Ronaldo only playing a limited role in United's preseason, ten Hag is unsure how long he will last against Rayo, after only returning to training five days ago.

The Portuguese superstar continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford as he seeks to play Champions League football in 2022/23.

"It’s Ronaldo’s first time, he’s had one-week training and we will see.  He needs games and a lot of training still."

United comments on the controversial attitude of Ronaldo

 United comments on the controversial attitude of Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo left the stadium before the end of the match which opposed Manchester United on Sunday, Rayo Vallecano. The English club commented on this. © supplied by Football 365 Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao The chaotic story between Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United continues. Since he knows that his club will not participate in the next Champions League campaign, the Portuguese seems to sulk and want to leave the Red Devils.

The major pre-game narrative has come true with Ronaldo making his first appearance in United's preseason campaign alongside home debuts for summer signings Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.

Former United striker Radamel Falcao starts for the visitors alongside highly rated duo Isi Palazon and Fran Garcia.

90 minutes to kickoff: Erik ten Hag will lead Man United for the first time at Old Trafford. If the good vibes he talks about below are to continue into next weekend's Premier League debut, a good showing by his reserve side, and perhaps a few goals for Cristiano Ronaldo, wouldn't hurt.

Ten Hag has immediately restored Ronaldo to the starting XI, taking into account the demands of two games in 24 hours, which has forced major lineup changes.
