So, late on last night, it was well covered by the MEN that Morgan Schneiderlin had completed a medical ahead of a £24m move to United from Southampton.
It followed a dizzying weekend in which Bastian Schweinsteiger also agreed terms and underwent his medical examinations and Matteo Darmian completed his own transfer.
The three players will cost approximately £50m between them, and there are rumours that the Reds are in for Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke. That’s per the reliable James Ducker. United are in need of a striker.
Robin van Persie’s move is still not complete although he was pictured with a Fenerbahce scarf ahead of that transfer to Turkey yesterday.
One player who won’t be joining him in Turkey is Victor Valdes, who will prefer to remain at Old Trafford.
