A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
Saturday was a busy day for Manchester United with Italian right-back Matteo Darmian completing his move to Old Trafford shortly after a deal had been agreed for Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
But it seems that is only the start of the summer spending spree at Old Trafford, with five more players linked with United in recent hours.
The Argentina international would be a great addition to United’s squad but he will not come cheap, but he may not be the only defender to arrive.
That would be quite a coup for van Gaal but in truth Real would be crazy to accept that potential option, especially with De Gea having only a year left on his current contract and the prospect of a free transfer just 12 months away.
It is being reported that United are still keen on the French international in what would be a complete transformation of their midfield.
