Here is Sunday’s news and gossip concerning Manchester United:
Louis van Gaal wants to sign Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke, after Liverpool seemed to step aside over his asking price, according to The Sun.
The Belgian will cost £32.5m, which is £10m more than the Reds were willing to pay. However, United will have no issue making a tempting offer.
He could be playing alongside Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller next season, after the Daily Star suggested that a £50m bid was on its way.
A move would give the German the chance to link up with former Bayern teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has reportedly completed his Old Trafford switch.
Manchester United will be willing to let David de Gea leave the club this summer, but only if Real Madrid agree to an audacious swap deal, the Daily Express report.
The 24-year-old will be allowed to move to the Bernabeu if Sergio Ramos and Keylor Navas head in the opposite direction.
The agent of Nicolas Gaitan has confirmed that the Red Devils are in talks with Benfica over the transfer of the Argentinian winger, according to the Metro.
Personal terms have reportedly been agreed, but the two parties are yet to agree a fee.
Finally, United have reportedly made an offer for former Manchester City defender Stefan Savic, the Metro report.
Fiorentina want around £10.7m for the 24-year-old.
