A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
Manchester United are reportedly one of the clubs monitoring the contract situation of West Ham United defender Winston Reid as they look to solve their defensive issues.
The New Zealand international’s current deal expires in the summer, and the Times reports that West Ham have given him until the middle of January to sign a new deal or they will be forced to sell him with a fee of £5million suggested.
Reid would be an unlikely but effective solution for United’s issues at centre-back given his experience and potential availability at a time when few so players move on.
He will now be assessed by Spain’s doctors but it could be another blow for United boss Louis van Gaal, who has seen the ‘keeper excel this season.
