Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 8:54 am

Stoke-City-v-Manchester-United-Premier-League-3102819Manchester United might need to include a player as well as a fee in the £10m region to convince Arsenal to let Thomas Vermaelen go, according to reports from different sources.

Yesterday news emerged that the Belgian international was thought to have agreed a deal in principle to move to Old Trafford this summer, putting an end to a five-year spell at the Emirates and join the Louis Van Gaal’s revolution, thus substantially increasing his salary, with United set to offer him £100,000-a-week compared to his current £70,000-a-week deal.

United set to snatch rivals’ captain

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 8:26 am

Vermaelen_2942911bArsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has agreed to join Manchester United this summer and he could become Louis Van Gaal’s first signing if the two clubs manage to agree a fee for the Belgium international.

The 28-year-old has just one year left on his current £70,000-a-week deal at the Emirates but while he remains the club’s captain – in May he lifted the FA Cup at Wembley even though he did not play a single minute in the final – he’s lost his starting spot to Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker and only managed 14 Premier League appearances last season.

Van Gaal’s number one target

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 11:10 am

165826220Louis Van Gaal has made Bastian Schweinsteiger his number one target for this summer and is determined to lure the Bayern Munich midfielder to Old Trafford this season, as he aims to begin a major overhaul of the current squad ahead of next season.

Having missed out on Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller and with Cesc Fabregas joining Chelsea, United know they can’t afford to let another summer pass by without bolstering their engine room and the 29-year-old seems to be Van Gaal’s choice, undoubtedly aided by the relationship the pair developed when the Dutchman was in charge of Bayern Munich.

Blame lies with the players, says United defender

Tag: Manchester United News @ 9:20 am

RafaelManchesterUnitedMarch2014_3111628Rafael has insisted the players should shoulder the blame for United’s abysmal showing last season and that him and his team-mates are the only figures responsible for United’s worst season since 1989-90, as United finished seventh and missed out on European football altogether for the first time in over two decades.

The Brazilian right-back was a regular under David Moyes, before an injury picked up in March sidelined him for the remainder of the campaign, as Ryan Giggs replaced the sacked Moyes for the last four games, trying to inject some momentum in a squad that had looked shambolic for the previous nine months.

£24m defender set for United move

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 2:30 pm

joao-miranda-atletico-madridAtletico Madrid defender Miranda looks set to become Louis Van Gaal’s first signing as Manchester United manager, after the club has reportedly triggered the defender’s release clause, thought to be worth in the region of £24m.

The 29-year-old defender was instrumental in Atletico Madrid’s phenomenal season and even though he couldn’t prevent Diego Simeone’s men from falling to a 4-1 defeat in Saturday’s European Cup final against city rivals Real Madrid, the Brazilian has emerged as one of the best defenders in Europe over the last couple of seasons.

United striker wants out

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 10:51 am

Manchester-United-v-Olympiacos-Kostas-Manolas_3104123Danny Welbeck has hinted he might seek a move out of United despite the arrival of Louis Van Gaal after expressing his frustration at the number of time he’s been played out wide for the club over the last 12 months.

Welbeck endured a difficult season, with rumours linking him with a move away with the club after growing disillusioned with David Moyes’ training methods hitting the headlines, while a couple of injuries meant his campaign struggled to get any momentum at all, but Van Gaal’s appointment was thought to be a good enough reason for the England striker to remain at the club.

United set to miss out on another midfielder

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 9:16 am

51thomas-mueller-2014Having decided Toni Kroos is no longer worth pursuing, Manchester United are set to miss out on another Bayern Munich midfielder, with German international Thomas Mueller expected to decline Louis Van Gaal’s offer to join him at Old Trafford, while the Bavarian outfit remain reluctant to sell. Mueller was thought to be one of United’s main transfer targets this summer, for the German can play in three different roles and guarantees an excellent goalscoring return for a midfielder, providing United with exactly the sort of player they’ve sorely missed for over five years now.

United to chase Liverpool target?

Tag: Transfer Rumours @ 8:34 am

FILE-Liverpool-Close-In-On-Deal-For-Ukrainian-Yevhen-KonopliankaHaving finally been named as Manchester United manager, Louis Van Gaal seems determined to get one over Liverpool as quickly as he possibly can, by entering the race for one of Brendan Rodgers’ main transfer targets – Dnipro’s winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

The Ukrainian international looked set to move to Anfield this summer for around £10m, even though Dnipro are reportedly unhappy with Liverpool’s attempt to lure one of their prized assets away from Ukraine on the final day of the January transfer window – a move which backfired in spectacular style for Rodgers, as Konoplyanka ended up remaining in Ukraine.
