All the latest news, views and transfer rumours from Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been linked with a midfielder, and in a surprise twist it is neither Arturo Vidal or Kevin Strootman.

Inside Futbol has followed up on claims from Sky Italia that Louis van Gaal wants to bring Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan to Old Trafford.

The Italian club moved to dismiss ongoing speculation that Strootman was on his way to United so it will be interesting to see what they think of the reports linking another of their players with a move to England.

The report claims van Gaal has moved his attention from Strootman to the 26-year-old Belgian who can play either as a central midfielder or as a more defensive-minded player.

But surely Roma are going to be just as keen to keep hold of him as they are their Holland international.

In other news, United’s club-record signing Angel Di Maria has been spotted shopping, after he managed to work out British cash-points.

The Daily Mail has published pictures of the Argentine international as he took money out and proceeded to spend it in a local Waitrose store.

The £59.7million signing from Real Madrid has shone since moving from Real Madrid this summer, but he was on the wrong end of a 5-3 defeat on Sunday, meaning his wonder-strike was swiftly forgotten.
