The Angel Di Maria links continued through the weekend, with rumours that he has agreed terms with PSG. And yesterday Larry White was joining in the fun, telling a United fan in the US that the deal is done.
Spanish expert Sid Lowe re-iterated the commonly held thought that Sergio Ramos would like to join Manchester United. It’s interesting at least, although it does seem as if – as Lowe himself admitted – old news is simply being regurgitated at this point.
Sometimes it takes time for things to reveal themselves and perhaps Real Madrid’s transfer intentions have been made clear, by handing Keylor Navas the number one jersey.
But all this summation and guesswork is an indication of where everyone seems to stand with United’s transfer activity at the moment. There is speculation of a firm bid arriving from the Reds for Barcelona’s Pedro while the Express claim Ed Woodward flew back from the US to resolve United’s impending goalkeeping ‘crisis’. Jan Oblak of Atletico Madrid has been touted as a name that may fit the bill. With Woodward back in the UK, though, it seems likely that speculation will only rumble on.
