What are Man Utd's chances of signing Neymar, Robert Lewandowski, Declan Rice and more?

Manchester United, as usual, are being linked with a host of names in the summer transfer window. But what are their chances of landing them?

A new manager, a sixth-placed finish and a host of problems mean it's open season for speculation regarding Manchester United signings.

The Red Devils have been linked with countless new arrivals since Erik ten Hag's appointment was confirmed and have been priced up in the betting for an incredible 31 potential summer moves.

But which ones are the most realistic and which ones are mere pie in the sky stuff? Planet Sport takes a look.

The favourites

United lead the betting or jointly lead the betting for six players, with Frenkie De Jong considered their most likely summer addition.

Ten Hag's side are reportedly willing to make the 25-year-old their highest-paid player to lure him to Old Trafford and are considered 4/6 shots with Sky Bet to sign the Barcelona midfielder before the transfer window closes on September 3. That is a 60% chance of De Jong making the switch.

Pau Torres is their next most likely addition, with the Villarreal defender 6/4 to join United ahead of Tottenham (5/1) and Chelsea (8/1) - a 40% likelihood.

Darwin Nunez is a Man Utd target for 2022/23

Benfica forward Darwin Nunez is also thought to be favouring a move to Premier League and is 9/4 to sign for United, with Liverpool (5/1) and Newcastle (6/1) also in the hunt.

United are also the market leaders for Declan Rice, with the West Ham midfielder a 3/1 shot to swap the Hammers for the Red Devils. Chelsea (5s) are United's closest challengers for the England man but it would take a huge fee to tempt David Moyes' side to part with their talisman.

Ten Hag's side also share the favouritism for Ruben Neves and Richarlison.

Wolves' Neves is 7/4 to join United in the summer, the same price as a switch to Barcelona, while fellow La Liga giants Real Madrid are the biggest rivals for Richarlison. Both they and United are priced at 6/1 to land the Everton forward.

In the mix

Harry Kane is targeting Wayne Rooney's England record at the 2022 World Cup

It wouldn't be summer without some Harry Kane speculation and despite the Spurs striker seeming content to stay at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it hasn't stopped the bookies pricing up the chances of a transfer window move.

Liverpool are favourites at 4/1 - a 20% possibility - with United next-best at 6s. Chelsea are 12/1.

More likely are United's chances of landing Christian Eriksen. The Danish midfielder is 11/8 to remain at Brentford but should he choose to move on, United, at 9/2, face strong competition from Newcastle (11/4) and Tottenham (3/1) to pick him up.

In addition to Kane, there are a number of other players for whom United are second favourites in the market.

Southampton's James Ward-Prowse and Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar are both listed at 5/1 to make a move to Old Trafford in the summer.

Tottenham are considered Ward-Prowse's most likely summer destination at 4s, with Antonio Conte's side also the same price to pick up Skriniar.

United are 6/1 to sign Youri Tielemans in the window but the 5/6 about Arsenal would suggest the Leicester man is heading to the Emirates.

The chances of Jarrod Bowen linking up with another former Hull City man in Harry Maguire are 7/1, with Liverpool (4s) thought to be winning the chase for the recent England call-up.

John McGinn is a 7/1 shot to trade Aston Villa for Manchester United, with Tottenham (5/1) and Arsenal (also 7/1) in the mix.

And a return to the Premier League for Sebastien Haller cannot be ruled out, with the Ivory Coast international having returned to his best form under Ten Hag at Ajax.

However, at 7/1, United are some way behind Borussia Dortmund (9/4) in the market.

The outsiders

Ivan Toney

Needing to strengthen across the board, it means no matter what position a player plays, there is the potential for a United link.

Goalkeepers Nick Pope (16/1) and Sam Johnstone (12/1) fall into the back-up goalkeeper category, although Crystal Palace (1/20) seems the most likely destination for Pope.

Central midfield is another area where United are crying out for reinforcements and Bayern Munich's Marcel Sabitzer (10/1) and Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham (16/1) represent attractive if unlikely options. That is certainly the case with Bellingham, who is priced at just 2/1 to move to Anfield in the summer - a likelihood of just over 33%.

Tempting Neymar to swap Paris for Manchester is a 16/1 shot as is a swoop for former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry, with Raphinha 12/1 to make the move across from Leeds.

Such is their desperation for an out and out striker that a return for Romelu Lukaku is 16/1.

Ivan Toney at 10s represents a slightly more feasible option, but Newcastle (3/1) look to be leading the chase for the Brentford man.

Juventus' Paulo Dybala is another potential forward signing at 16/1, but appears to be Inter-bound (1/4), with Roma (6/1) also keen to keep him in Serie A.

The long shots

Kalvin Phillips doing the hard yards in the middle with Marcos Alonso and Gareth Bale providing the ammunition for Robert Lewandowksi to score the goals. It could happen, but it's very, very unlikely.

United are 20/1 to sign Marcos Alonso in the summer, with Barcelona (1/6) appearing to have already got the Chelsea man's signing wrapped up, while Bale is 22/1 to move to Old Trafford having seemingly decided to swap Madrid for Cardiff (1/3).

Phillips is 33/1 to join United, with Manchester City 1/2 to persuade the Leeds midfielder to leave Elland Road in the window, while Lewandowski looks set to join Alonso at Barcelona (1/3), with United outsiders at 25s.

Three other players who fall into the unlikely category are Dominic Calvert-Lewin (18/1) who is among a host of players seemingly moving to Newcastle (11/8), Ousmane Dembele (25/1), who is thought to be heading to PSG (5/4) or Chelsea (6/4) and Leeds United's Jack Harrison (33/1).

And for players potentially moving out, Marcus Rashford is priced at 7/2 to join PSG. And a scarcely believable 33/1 to commit the ultimate sin by joining City.
