Meanwhile, midfielder Michael Carrick is confident United can compete for silverware this term under Louis van Gaal after a difficult and disappointing season last term under David Moyes.

"Yes, it's not a nice feeling when things don't go right," the midfielder told Sky Sports News.

"We’ve still certainly got enough quality in the squad anyway, regardless of who is coming in this summer, to be up there challenging again.”

In transfer news, United target William Carvalho will cost £37 million if the Red Devils wish to continue their reported pursuit of the Sporting Lisbon midfielder. His club have told potential suitors they will only allow the 22-year-old to leave if his buyout clause is met.

Meanwhile, Spain midfielder Andres Iniesta has hinted he could be open to a move to Old Trafford after the Barcelona star spoke in glowing terms of Louis van Gaal of whom he says he has ‘special memories’.

"Yes. He already commands respect when you are a veteran, so imagine when you have just entered the team and you are young,” Iniesta explained.

"But the truth is I have a special memory of him, because he is someone very important to me and if there was something he cared about was supporting the young players from the reserves."

The Mirror suggests United could launch a £20 million bid for Germany defender Mats Hummels this summer.

Reports continue to suggest United remain in the running to sign Arturo Vidal after the Chile international cast doubt over his future at Juventus.

Elsewhere, La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests United are ready to pay £32 million for Colombia star Juan Cuadrado of Fiorentina.

In other news, Marouane Fellaini’s Belgium progressed past the USA on Tuesday night in Brazil finishing 2-1 ahead against the Americans after extra time. The Red Devils midfielder played the full 120 minutes despite concerns over an injury that threatened to keep him sidelined.
