MANCHESTER United have reportedly got involved in the fight over Ivan Toney who could be at the centre of a three-way transfer battle.
With less than three weeks to go before the Premier League season begins, it emerged that Newcastle and Leeds were circling around the Brentford striker.
Now reports suggest that United have joined the battle – only days after beating the West London club in the fight for Christian Eriksen.

Toney hit 14 goals and got six assists in his debut top-flight season as the Bees comfortably avoided relegation.
