Manchester United, as we can see, have been very active in the transfer market. After they brought in the Dutch magician Memphis Depay, they are further trying bag all their coveted targets to strengthen their squad.
Here’s a quick roundup of some of the players Manchester United are interested in.
After failing to sign Nathaniel Clyne from Southampton, Manchester United are very keen to sign the French central defensive midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin of Southampton. Schneiderlin has dropped hints that he might be leaving Southampton. Schineiderlin has stated that he will only leave Southampton if he would be given the chance to play in the Champions League. Manchester United are ready to pay no less than £25m for the Frenchman, who is also under Arsenal’s radar at the moment. The 25 year old joined Southampton from Strasborg in 2008 for a fee of £12m and has been one of the major figures who helped them to their promotion to the top tier of English football.
Manchester United are also talking terms with the 27 year-old Nicolas Gaitan of Benfica, whom they tried to buy years ago. Nicolas Gaitan’s agent confirms that he has agreed personal terms and the only thing remaining is the finalizing of the fee.
Manchester United were also on the verge of signing Roberto Firmino of Hoffenheim until Liverpool hijacked their deal and got him to join them instead for a fee of £29m. It’s also ironical to find out that Clyne is also joining Liverpool for a fee of £12.5m.
Manchester United’s £32m bid on their most wanted target, Sergio Ramos has been rejected by Real Madrid but Louis Van Gaal is firm and wants to cut out a deal. Sergio Ramos’s future at Madrid seems uncertain at the moment and Manchester United, seeing this, want to immediately capitalize.
Manchester United compete with Arsenal to get Gonzalo Higuain to the Premier League and it all depends on the big man who seems unsettled after the departure of manager Rafael Benitez.
