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

Manchester United have been linked with a whole host of players leading up to the January transfer window, but now a new name can be added to that list.

Italian website TMW has run an exclusive claiming United are interested in Uruguayan striker Kevin Mendez.

The 18-year-old currently plays for Penarol and has previously attracted alleged interest from Premier League rivals Liverpool. But the latest report claims United want to complete a swift deal for the player.

In other news, the Daily Star has picked up on claims that Marco Reus is on the verge of signing for Real Madrid.

The Borussia Dortmund player has been linked with United in recent times, along with a whole host of other clubs. But the fact that the news has been suggested by a ‘FIFA agent’ – something FIFA reveals does not exist on its official website – means Reus’s future is just as unclear as it was 24 hours earlier.
