L’Equipe are determined to get in on this summer of Manchester United gossip. Having spent some time peddling the Hugo Lloris rumour, they go heavy today with the story of Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin saying that Man Utd have agreed a £24m fee and the player will join on a four year deal.
Here’s the Google Translate for you :
In a few days, Morgan Schneiderlin change galaxy. The community will be involved for Manchester United. 25 years old, the player agreed with MU on a contract for four years. Discussions are still underway, but they do not concern the player. Manchester United and Southampton have not yet agreed on the transfer amount. In England there is talk of a deal that could reach 30 million.
There’s too much smoke for there not to be any fire. But United remain ominously quiet.
As they do with an official line on Sergio Ramos. But we feel Ian Herbert of the Independent is the man to trust as he was first with the news of United’s first offer and today he says that Real Madrid are accepting they have lost the battle for their defender.
We still believe that this will end in some public declaration of love and Madrid will offer Ramos a new deal but we’re increasingly impressed by United’s ‘boot on the other foot’ policy. Rio Ferdinand appears to agree, maybe he was reading RetroUnited.com and what Gordon Hill had to say on the matter.
The Express rumour like it’s 2014 with their story that Arturo Vidal may have already agreed to move to United for £21m. And, also, Ilkay Gundogan may also move for the same fee next week.
