Hot on the heels of the news that United are set to sign Torino’s Matteo Darmian to solve the right back headache which had plagued Louis van Gaal, it is now being reported by the Guardian that the Dutch manager wishes to sign Morgan Schneiderlin before Monday’s trip to America.
Southampton apparently are ready to sell and even have earmarked Jordy Clasie as a potential replacement – this is just our opinion, but we’d be in for Clasie too, we think he’s a star of the future and has the ability to improve our midfield at present.
All remains quiet on the Spanish front. Can you believe that David De Gea was pictured SMILING in training? Omg. We’ve complained about his behaviour but maybe his silence has helped our bargaining. And as long as he doesn’t do a Sterling and refuses to travel, then can we be too disappointed? Silence is funny, isn’t it – you can change your opinion based on nothing but it.
The Star are saying that Real are looking to re-sign Ezequiel Garay in preparation for the departure of Ramos. But there’s that silence again – maybe the news that Ramos was prepared to move to United and had agreed terms has prompted Madrid to offer a new contract, and that’s what we’re about to hear announced? After all, it is suggested Marcelo is set to sign a new contract – if he does, and Ramos doesn’t, then maybe we can put 2 and 2 together.
Spanish radio station Cadena Cope make the claim that we offered £99m for Gareth Bale and that it was refused. Hmm.
