Here is the latest Manchester United gossip from around the web including reports United tried and failed to sign Benfica midfielder Andre Gomes this summer.
– The Express are reporting that a ‘bid in excess’ of £14m from both United and City was rejected this summer. If true it would indicate Daley Blind was potentially bought as an alternative which, if it was the case, could tun out in United’s favour as Blind has the ability be United’s most important signing this summer.
– Phil Jones feels Louis van Gaal has the full backing of the players and believes a three man defence will be good for United once it clicks. David Moyes lost the backing of the players early last season but Van Gaal is a man who demands respect, so he’s likely to keep it, no matter what the results are.
– Paris St Germain are ready to offer AS Roma a cash plus player deal in order to sign Kevin Strootman. United would certainly have competition for Strootman but Van Gaal’s presence as manager means if you were gambling online, United would be his most likely destination.
– Rio Ferdinand has questioned United’s decision to sell Danny Welbeck to Arsenal and believes the club could grow to regret it. Welbeck wanted to leave United for first-team action and could well flourish into the striker many hoped he would be at United.
