Manchester United transfer news: Hummels efforts increased, green light to sign Sneijder?

A round up of transfer stories about Manchester United this morning.

Several reports suggest Manchester United are stepping up their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels.

The German centre-back has been frequently linked with moves to United since Nemanja Vidic’s decision to leave and the club’s decision not to retain Rio Ferdinand.

Hummels is rated at around the £20 million mark but he’s one of Jurgen Klopp’s most important players.

Manchester United could make a €20 million move for Dutchman Wesley Sneijder.

Galatasaray’s president has revealed the club are powerless to stop the player leaving if a club matches his release clause.

Sneijder has come close to a United move in the past with his personal terms thought to be a potential stumbling block.

The Express claims Manchester United have been given a better chance of signing Arturo Vidal from Juventus with Patrice Evra reportedly about to head to the Serie A champions.

Luke Shaw’s arrival at Old Trafford means Evra’s long term replacement has been secured.

It’s unlikely that a deal for Vidal would be intertwined with the one which could take the Frenchman to Italy.
