Manchester United news round-up including Mourinho, Sanches and Aubameyang


Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Manchester United have agreed to pay €80m for Benfica youngster Renato Sanches, according to Record. They have published fresh reports that Man United are willing to pay €40m up front for Sanches with another €40m in bonuses and they support O Jogo’s claims Benfica’s president Luís Filipe Vieira was in Manchester this week to finalise negotiations over the 18-year-old.

Sky Sports News are reporting that no agreement has been reached between Man United and Jose Mourinho over the manager’s job at Old Trafford. The former Chelsea and boss is supposedly keen on the post should United look to replace Louis van Gaal in the summer, they suggest Ed Woodward is still mulling over whether the Dutchman will see out the remaining 12 months of his three-year contract.

MailOnline are suggesting that Man United have confirmed their interest in Borussia Dortmund’s £70m-rated striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ahead of the summer transfer window. Aubameyang has enjoyed a sparkling campaign for Dortmund this term, scoring 34 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side.

Adnan Januzaj has named Luke Shaw as the hardest defender he has ever faced. Shaw started off this season in magnificent form having undergone an intense pre-season training regime and was one of our best players in the early part of this campaign but a cruel injury away at PSV Eindhoven scuppered his chances of having a breakthrough year with Man United.

Manchester United news round-up including Aubameyang, Ibrahimovic and Lukaku


Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Manchester United will face competition from Porto if they are to complete a deal for Braga midfielder Rafa Silva, according to reports. Man United are said to be keen admirers of the 22-year-old but Porto are also in the race to secure his services.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Hans-Joachim Watzke has revealed that the German club would only consider selling Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if they were offered at least £78m for his services. Aubameyang has enjoyed a remarkable campaign for Dortmund this term, scoring 32 goals in 36 appearances.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has suggested that he could retire at the end of the season if he does not receive a suitable offer following his exit from Paris Saint-Germain. The Swede is said to be the subject of interest from clubs such as Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal but he hinted that he could just retire altogether.

Lastly, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has claimed that he understands why Romelu Lukaku would want to move to a club such as Man United. The player’s father recently claimed that his son should choose between a transfer to Man United or Bayern Munich. Wright insisted that Lukaku has more of a chance of making the “next step” in his career at Old Trafford.

Could Rashford displace Rooney?

marcusrashford

When Marcus Rashford slid the ball past Joe Hart in the derby it was the composed finished of a seasoned striker, not a teenager with less than a dozen senior appearances under his belt.

It’s safe to say Rashford has exploded onto the Premiership scene, with goals against bitter rivals City and Arsenal he could not have had a better start to his United career. Aside from the headline debut, Rashford’s name has been cited for an England call up, and news broke that his £500 a week salary has risen to a colossal £20,000.

With Wayne Rooney having a difficult season, struggling with both form and injuries, could the 18-year-old sensation really be a threat to the Manchester United skipper’s place in Van Gaal’s starting eleven?

Gerard Pique rules out ever joining Manchester City: “My love for United is too strong”

Barcelona’s Gerard Pique has ruled out the possibility of following Pep Guardiola to Manchester City this summer due to his “love” for former club Manchester United.

Guardiola, currently in charge of Barcelona, will join City at the end of the campaign, leading to speculation as to who the Spaniard might want to sign at the Etihad stadium.

Pique worked with Guardiola at Barcelona but the defender insisted he has no intention of joining City.

“My love for United is too strong to go to City, so I don’t see myself in their shirt, even though Pep is a great coach,” he said.

Pique joined United in 2004 but he found first team opportunities limited due to the form of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.

Since joining Barcelona in 2008, the Spaniard has established himself as one of the finest central defenders in the world. It is good to see that he still holds United in high regard and he is certainly welcome back to Old Trafford should he get tired of winning everything at Barcelona.

United v Midtjylland preview: Rooney blow hits Champions League hopes

Tag: Betting,Match Preview @ 7:05 am

Wayne Rooney has been left out of the Manchester United squad for Thursday’s Europa League last 32 first leg against Danish champions FC Midtjylland, with the striker out with a knee injury that, some media outlets are claiming, could see him miss two months of football.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Louis van Gaal revealed that the United captain was indeed injured, as it had been reported, but did not comment on how long he would be sidelined for:

“You can never say [how long he could be out for]. He has a knee problem so we have to wait and see. “He scores a lot of goals so he is very important for us. We know that but we have to cope with that.”

MUFC Transfer news: Nick Powell to join Hull City

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Nick Powell could be leaving Man United on loan and joining Steve Bruce’s Hull City. Powell, 21, has been out of action for a few weeks now having only recently returned from a season long lay-off but the suggestion is that he could once again be on his way out for another loan spell.

While I’m adverse to Powell leaving on loan again, you have to imagine Bruce, being an ex-Red, would want to get the best out of him if he joined rather than letting him sit on the bench.

The latest on Guillermo Varela to Genoa from Sport Witness is that he could potentially complete a move within 48 hours to the Serie A side. After his performance against Derby, one which showed his true potential, would that be a wise move?

Reports suggest West Ham in for Sadio Mane but with so little time left in the January transfer window, could a big move for Mane be agreed at this late stage?

Finally, The Sun suggest United are eyeing up a move for PSG defender Marquinhos within the next few days.
