News, views and rumours relating to Manchester United in the past 24 hours.
Wales manager Chris Coleman has ‘warned’ Louis van Gaal that he will be under pressure to bring success at Old Trafford just like his predecessor David Moyes.
“I thought it would be hard for Moysey in the first year or two and I was disappointed as a fellow manager that he only got 10 months,” stated Coleman.
“I want to see what happens next season because Louis van Gaal is a quality manager but what are we going to say next year if Manchester United have not won anything? Is Louis van Gaal going to be out the door because he is going to need time to bed in with his own ideas?”
This comes following David Moyes’ comments on Sunday that he ‘needed more time’ to succeed at Old Trafford.
In transfer news, United striker Javier Hernandez is the subject of interest from Inter Milan, according to reports. The Mexican international was a peripheral figure at Old Trafford last season under David Moyes and could move on a £10 million deal to the Serie A giants.
The same source also claims United and Chelsea lead the ‘chase’ for Cesc Fabregas who remains in the frame for a move to the Premier League from Barcelona.
At present, many rumours and reports are flying around but current reports suggest the Red Devils and the Blues are vying to sign the Spain midfielder for around £32 million, with his former club Arsenal apparently not interested in a return for the former captain whilst Manchester City have also been linked.
Meanwhile, Southampton have insisted they have ‘no need’ to sell players as Luke Shaw continues to be linked with a move to United. The club also confirmed they had received offers for some of their players.
"Southampton Football Club can confirm that we have received multiple offers for some of our players in the past weeks," a statement read.
"We are staying true to our plan and vision and, as a result, we have no need to accept any offers. We are deep in the process of appointing a new manager who will continue to move our club forward. It remains our preference not to partake in any transfers until the new manager is in place.”
The club also confirmed the sale of striker Rickie Lambert to Liverpool in the following paragraph.
