Here is Monday’s news and rumours concerning Manchester United:
United and bitter rivals Manchester City have reportedly held talks with Jorge Mendes over the weekend, as both sides prepare to make bids for Valencia defender Nicolas Otamendi, according to the Daily Star.
The Premier League pair are set to submit offers of around £35m for the 27-year-old.
Barcelona winger Pedro has reportedly told friends that he will be moving to Old Trafford this summer, the Metro report.
Chelsea and Liverpool are also keen on the Spaniard, but he wishes to join Louis van Gaal’s men.
Ajax boss Frank De Boer has admitted that the Eredivisie side will probably be unable to stop Jasper Cillessen linking up with his former international coach Louis van Gaal, the Metro report.
United are preparing a £20m bid for the 26-year-old, and De Boer explained that any deal may be out of their hands.
“We want to keep him and he wants to stay, but if Manchester United come with a bag of money, it can be difficult,” he said.
He could have more competition at the Theatre of Dreams than he was expecting however, as the Metro report that Sergio Romero is to undergo a medical today.
The Metro suggest that van Gaal wants to get a deal done as quickly as possible after telling Victor Valdes that he’s free to leave following their spat.
Finally, Angel Di Maria’s time at Old Trafford appears to be coming to an end, after the Daily Star reported that he had agreed personal terms ahead of his switch to Paris Saint-Germain.
