A mixed bag of Man Utd gossip today, including a Chelsea player they want to sign, a player they are no longer interested in, a player they are prepared to sell to a Premier League rival, and an internal coaching promotion.
Sky Sports are claiming that United are interested in signing Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder Willian, 29, this summer. Willian is said t be unhappy at Stamford Bridge and would welcome a move to Old Trafford.
The Metro is reporting that Manchester United are set to pull out of a £53m move for Shakhtar Donetsk and Brazil midfielder Fred, 25, a player they have been consistently linked with over the last few weeks.
One player that could be leaving Old Trafford is United’s France international forward Anthony Martial, 22, who is apparently a target for Tottenham. According to the London Evening Standard Martial will be let go if a bid high enough comes in from Spurs this summer.
In a non-transfer gossip story, the Daily Record is reporting that Jose Mourinho has decided to promote Kieran McKenna from United’s academy set up as a group of three replacements for outgoing assistant manager Rui Faria.
