Man Utd near to Miranda deal

Manchester United could be about to strengthen their defensive options after it was reported they had agreed to match the release clause of Atletico Madrid star Miranda, according to the Daily Mail.



New manager Louis Van Gaal has agreed to activated the £24m release clause for the Brazilian defender who has starred in Atletico’s title winning campaign this year.


The 29-year-old will be seen as a replacement to departing duo Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand with Van Gaal identifying his defensive options as a main priority in the transfer window this summer.


Miranda, who was left out of the Brazil World Cup squad to much shock, has reportedly been looking at schools in the Manchester area after being offered a four year deal at Old Trafford.


Release clauses are mandatory in Spain for all players but the large transfer outlay does not seem to have put off United in making a move for their man.


His performances this season have even led to Spain boss Vincente Del Bosque to enquire over the player’s international status but the defender had already played full internationals for Brazil and can not follow team mate Diego Costa in switching to Spain.
