A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United…
The report claims that if the striker agrees a new long-term deal at Old Trafford, he will be handed the armband permanently, provided he understands the ambassadorial role that goes with such a title.
When asked specifically about the prospect of Rooney taking the role, Moyes is quoted as saying, “Like everyone else, I’ll give everyone that opportunity to stand up and show what they can do in the coming months.”
In truth, given the players likely to be at Old Trafford next season, Rooney does appear to be the most likely candidate for the job.
The combined fee for the two is touted at £45million.
But the Mail has a slightly different - and longer - list of potential arrivals, with Shaw joined by Juventus pair Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba, Atletico Madrid front-man Diego Costa and Ajax’s Joel Veltman.
The report claims Moyes will attempt to spend in the region of £100million this summer – although it will take considerably more than that to bag everyone on the list above.
