Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has predicted Paul Pogba to be the “best midfielder in the world.” The 23-year-old is reportedly on his way to Old Trafford after Man United tabled a record £100m bid in order to land his signature.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has responded to Eric Cantona’s remarks where the Frenchman touted himself as the only King of Manchester by announcing he will be the ‘God’ of Manchester. Cantona sent a message to Ibrahimovic upon his arrival, reminding the Swede that there was only one ‘King’ in Manchester, urging him to accept the title of ‘Prince’ instead.
Juan Mata has suppressed rumours about leaving Man United urging fans to not “always listen to the media.” It was reported the 28-year-old, who was sold by Jose Mourinho back at Chelsea in 2014, was set to be sold by the Portuguese once more this summer.
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has backed Jose Mourinho to replicate the impact of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Ranieri, who guided Leicester to a shock title win last season, was sacked by Chelsea in 2004 and replaced with Mourinho, who guided Chelsea to their first domestic league success in 50 years.
