Here is Saturday’s news and gossip concerning Manchester United:
The Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney has tipped the club’s new signing Anthony Martial for a very bright future at Old Trafford, despite having to ask Morgan Schneiderlin who he was when he heard that Louis van Gaal was pursuing him, the Daily Express report.
“He’s got a lot of ability from what I’ve seen and I’m sure he’ll be a great player for us,” he said.
Another new signing Matteo Darmian has made some interesting comments regarding his move to United, by suggesting that his move to the Premier League is not the apex of his career, the Daily Express report.
“Manchester United is a beginning and not the apex of my career,” he insisted.
Despite being included in van Gaal’s Premier League squad, Victor Valdes is still free to go, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Having failed to secure a move away during the transfer window, his inclusion led to speculation that his rift with the manager was over. However, he has simply been included to comply with regulations.
Barcelona are planning to hold talks about a new contract for reported Man United target Neymar, according to the Daily Express.
The Red Devils had been linked with a move that would see them pay £240m in transfer fees and wages, but the Catalan giants plan to quash that suggestion by agreeing a new deal for the 23-year-old.
Finally, Real Madrid have pinpointed Borussia Dortmund star and Man United target Marco Reus as the Galactico signing they wish to make next summer, the Daily Express report.
