Manchester United transfer news: United outbidding rivals over Blind, eye Verratti move

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

The Express claims Manchester United are ahead of Barcelona in their pursuits of Ajax star Daley Blind.

Blind is thought to be a perfect signing for United because he can offer cover at left-back as well as play in midfield.

United are reportedly outbidding Barca in the race to get him with a current offer of around the £17 million mark.

Manchester United are thought to be one of three clubs interested in signing Marco Verratti from PSG.

The 21-year-old Italian midfielder is reportedly being tracked by United, Real Madrid and Juventus.

Le10 Sport magazine says United are willing to make a big financial move to try and sign him.

Arturo Vidal could have hinted that he is not joining Manchester United this summer.

The Chilean midfielder is thought to be a top target for the club as Louis van Gaal looks to add to his midfield pack ahead of the new season.

Vidal said he was not going to Manchester when quizzed over his future at an airport.
