Manchester United morning news: £65m duo linked but Arsenal could take both

Mats Hummels 2 Germany

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

Manchester United continue to be linked with a number of players with the January transfer window fast-approaching.

The Daily Star Sunday claims Louis van Gaal’s side are the latest to be interested in Benfica’s scoring sensation Anderson Talisca, who reportedly has a release-clause of £35million.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has scored eight goals in nine Primeira Liga appearances for the Portuguese champions this season, and the latest report claims United have sent scouts to watch him with both Arsenal and Chelsea said to be keen.

In other news, the Sunday Mirror suggests United could be scuppered in any move for reported target Mats Hummels with Arsenal apparently leading the way.

The report claims the Borussia Dortmund defender is eying a move to Arsenal and the Gunners will make a move in January.

The £30million-rated German international is seen as the ideal defensive reinforcement for United but they could miss out on him even if he does leave the Bundesliga in the future.
