We thought we’d seen the back of the outgoings and were now going to see even more players coming in but no, the major headlines on Wednesday morning concern players about to leave Old Trafford.
By the way, for those who live and breathe receiving news via the club, then can anyone explain how Robin van Persie’s transfer has – at time of writing – failed to have been acknowledged at all? Something went wrong there…
Some might think that the Angel Di Maria transfer has gone a bit wrong too. PSG were interested last year and now it is being suggested by French outlet La Parisien that United may be interested in a £43m offer. That’s some hit for the player who was by far the Red Devils’ most creative player last year.
Javier Hernandez is linked with a move to Besitkas due to comments apparently made by his agent on Turkish radio.
A line in the Express about what might have been, one we missed at the time – Southampton are set to sign Jordy Clasie as Morgan Schneiderlin’s replacement. Clasie will cost the Saints up to £9m – a fantastic bit of business, as the Dutch international is someone we’d love to see at United. Maybe we will in a year, though he may equally end up at Liverpool. That would be a shame. The Express said on July 1st that we were interested, so, he goes on our name list even though he’s been and gone. Seemingly.
There is some talk that Sergio Romero, the Argentina World Cup keeper who is currently available on a free transfer, may be wanted by United. Granted, it’s been reported by the less reputable outlets, but a few of them are on it. You never know.
