Manchester United transfer news: Cillessen to follow Schneiderlin, Di Maria swap deal and £20m Coleman link

Old Trafford Statues

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

As the opening of the summer transfer window draws ever closer the rumours relating to Manchester United continue apace.

The Daily Star Sunday claims United manager Louis van Gaal is willing to offer club-record signing Angel Di Maria in a straight swap for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

The Argentine international has failed to replicate his best form at Old Trafford thus far, starting with a bang before quickly fizzling out and spending the majority of the last few months of the campaign on the bench.

Cavani would be a fine addition to United’s forward-line but it remains to be seen if there is any truth in the rumour.

In other news, the Sun claims United are targeting a £20million move for Everton right-back Seamus Coleman.

That position is one United desperately need to strengthen this summer, with Rafael out of favour at the club, barely featuring since van Gaal took charge.

That leaves Antonio Valencia as the only viable alternative and he is more a make-shift full-back than anything else.

And finally, the Mirror claims United have sealed a £25million deal to bring Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin to the club.

The report claims the Frenchman will seal his deal on Wednesday and that United will then move swiftly with a £20million bid for Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
