A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
The World Cup may be in full-swing but the transfer rumours are coming thick and fast in relation to Manchester United.
Reports in the last few hours have suggested United are about to spring something of a surprise, by announcing a deal for Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera.
The Spaniard was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford 12 months ago, but El Correro claims United are now willing to pay his €36million release-clause and that an announcement could be made imminently.
It would certainly be a curve-ball given how quiet it has been regarding Herrera recently, along with the fact the player has recently said he is happy in La Liga.
The €10million-rated player is enjoying an outstanding World Cup, and his agent is said to be in talks with a number of clubs including Louis van Gaal’s side.
The winger has long been linked with the Old Trafford exit, but with a new manager now in place he may be the next in line to attempt to get the best out of a frustrating but prodigiously gifted player.
That could signal the end of United’s interest, unless they really do mean business in terms of transforming their squad no matter the cost.
