Wednesday’s biggest Manchester United news and transfer rumour gossip.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal forced Paris St-Germain to pay an extra £3m for forward Angel Di Maria after the 27-year-old posted a picture of himself with the French club’s owner in Qatar, the Daily Mirror reports.
The Argentine was apparently not given permission to travel to Doha to meet with PSG chiefs but then proceeded to upload pictures of himself with their owners on social media.
However, United are on the verge of completing a £20m deal for Barcelona forward Pedro, according to The Sun.
Van Gaal offered Pedro a role alongside Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay in a new-look front three in order to convince him to move to Old Trafford, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Sunderland are in talks to sign Manchester United’s 20-year-old winger Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan deal, the Sunderland Echo reports.
The Belgian international struggled to make an impact under Louis van Gaal last season and may be shipped out on loan to continue his development.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is ready to hand a surprise debut to goalkeeper Sergio Romero this weekend and leave out David de Gea, The Daily Star reports.
Van Gaal fears that de Gea’s head has been turned by the recent speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid this summer.
