Manchester United morning news: Eighth summer signing announced; Reus rumours persist

A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United

Manchester United have announced that an eighth player has signed for them this summer.

Timothy Fosu-Mensah has joined the club from Ajax, following Radamel Falcao, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Vanja Milinkovic in signing for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Fosu-Mensah is a 16-year-old defender who is highly regarded back in Holland.

In other news, Marco Reus has found himself linked once again with a move to United, despite the transfer window being closed until January.

Spanish newspaper El Confidencial has linked the Borussia Dortmund player with a move next summer, after Real Madrid reportedly had a query rebuffed from the German side in the last window.

The report claims that United remain a possible destination for one of the most exciting attacking talents in European football. The only question is: Where would they – or Real for that matter – fit him in.
