Manchester United and PSG have reached an agreement over the transfer of Angel Di Maria to the French capital, according to Sky Sports’ Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.
The Argentine did not join up with the United squad in San Jose for the last leg of their US tour, after he was given an extended break following his involvement in the Copa America with Argentina and PSG manager Laurent Blanc suggested a deal was ‘very close’.
Louis Van Gaal has admitted he “does not know” where Angel Di Maria is and has refused to get drawn on speculations that the Argentine winger could be heading to PSG this summer.
Speaking after United’s 2-0 defeat in a friendly against the Ligue 1 champions, the Dutchman said he was not aware of any deal to bring the club’s record signing to the French capital, even though PSG’s manager Laurent Blanc claimed an agreement was “close”.
Manchester United have edged increasingly close to secure the signing of Barcelona forward Pedro, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for over a week now, as Louis Van Gaal looks to bolster his attacking options, particularly given Angel Di Maria looks set to complete a move to PSG before the end of the transfer window.
Louis Van Gaal believes Luke Shaw will recover from a difficult first season at Old Trafford to establish himself as a regular for Manchester United.
The 20-year-old struggled to replicate the form he had shown at Southampton two seasons ago and managed to play in only 20 of United’s 44 games in their first campaign under Van Gaal, who criticised the England international’s lack of match fitness at the start of last season.
Manchester United need a “galactico” signing to rediscover the creativity and attacking flair they missed last season, according to Louis Van Gaal.
The Dutchman spent a club record £59.7m on Angel Di Maria last season but after a bright start the Argentine’s spell at Old Trafford descended into mediocrity and he now looks set to complete a move to PSG.
Manchester United have completed the signing of Argentina keeper Sergio Romero from Serie A side Sampdoria.
The Argentine, who played under Louis Van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar, has signed a three-year deal with an option for a further 12 months and will, at least initially, replace the departing Victor Valdes as David De Gea’s understudy at Old Trafford.
Barcelona forward Pedro has told his teammates that he will join Manchester United and he’s set to submit a transfer request, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
Marca, which is traditionally closer to Real Madrid than Barcelona, suggests that the Spain international has decided to leave the Camp Nou this summer and has told the club’s board and his teammates that he wants to join United.
Jesse Lingard said he’s determined to prove his worth at Manchester United and would rather stay at Old Trafford than head out on loan.
The 22-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Derby County, where he impressed even though the Rams fell short of promotion.
