Manchester United media round-up: United quickly identify Valdes replacement

Old Trafford 2

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail claims Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes will not link up with Spanish side Valencia because of his high wage deal.

The United shot stopper is facing a future away from Old Trafford after Louis van Gaal made it clear that he feels the player doesn’t buy into the philosophy of the club.

The paper claims United have made an offer to Argentinian goalkeeper Sergio Romero, which is thought to be worth around £30,000 per week.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has been quoted by ESPN explaining that he’s convinced the side will soon be challenging for the Premier League title again.

The German star was recently unveiled as a new signing for the club, as they look to improve on their fourth place finish from last season.

He’s suggested that the quality levels in training sessions have impressed him to the extent that he believes success is possible.

“When I see what we do in practice and the quality we have I am sure we have the chance to win titles. I am convinced about that,” he said.

Manchester United youngster Jesse Lingard has been quoted by the Daily Express, explain that he’s hungrier than ever to force his way into the Manchester United first team.

The talented midfielder is facing an uphill challenge due to the calibre of players ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, he’s determined to try and get himself noticed against some very good colleagues, who he’ll be competing against for squad space.

“You see [Bastian] Schweinsteiger and [Morgan] Schneiderlin come in and it makes you more hungry to do more to get into the team,” he said.
