Here is a quick round-up of today’s leading Manchester United news stories.
It’s been a frantic day at Old Trafford with two new signings and rumours galore. Let’s start with our new signings.
The 22yr old Ivory Coast defender has finally put pen to paper on a 4 year contract. Manchester United confirmed the signing of the lightning quick 6″2 centre back for £30m, subject to a work permit. He is a welcome addition and you only have to look at his statistics from last season in La Liga to see we have secured a quality player.
The young Dutch winger today confirmed on his instagram account that he will join United for next season This is yet another coup for the club as we reinforce at Under 21 and 18’s level. United beat of competition from Europe’s elite clubs to bag the 16yr old wonder kid. You only have to watch his youtube video’s to see what an exciting talent he is.
Daniel Taylor at the Guardian is reporting that Man City have decided not to pursue the signing of Paul Pogba, leaving United in poll position to bring the former academy player back to Old Trafford. I would love to see it happen as i feel Poggers could go on to captain the team through the next decade of dominance.
The long running saga of Zlatan’s anticipated move to United rumbles on. According to the Daily Telegraph he is due a loyalty bonus of £4m if he stays until 30th June. He is then free to join us on 1st July. Thankfully we have the Euro’s to distract us from this saga. We all know its going to happen !!!!
Multiple news outlets are reporting that the Chelsea midfielder has told incoming boss Conte, that he wants to quit the London club and follow his old boss Mourinho to Manchester. It’s silly season in football and anything can happen so we will wait and see if this story has any validity.
Other players being linked today include: Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez.
