Friday’s biggest Man United news and transfer rumours.
Manchester United are close to signing Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, 25, for £24m, meaning they will not sign Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, 30, according to the Daily Star.
United, along with Arsenal and Spurs have been tracking the France international throughout the season.
Real Madrid have rejected Manchester United’s £35m offer for defender Sergio Ramos, 29, with the English club considering an improved bid, the Daily Mail reports.
Real are still hopeful of being able to convince the legendary defender to stay with them.
Benfica and Argentina attacking midfielder Nicolas Gaitan, 27, has a deal agreed to join Manchester United – subject to his club’s permission, according to his agent, according to the Metro.
His arrival could spell the end of the line for Angel di Maria, whose future at the club is still up in the air.
However, Di Maria has vowed to fight for his place at Old Trafford in the face of interest from Barca and Paris St-Germain, the Daily Express reports.
Manchester United will not sell goalkeeper David De Gea, 24, to Real Madrid unless the Spanish club pay a world-record fee for a goalkeeper. Gianluigi Buffon’s reported £33m to Juventus in 2001 remains the record, the Manchester Evening News reports.
The goalkeeper has turned down the offer of a new contract, but United are still keen to keep him at the club.
