Here is the latest Manchester United transfer gossip and news including wild reports of Real Madrid being interested in a £23m move for Adnan Januzaj and Louis van Gaal has encouraged England to choose their best possible players for next summer’s U21 European Championships.
Januzaj’s lack of appearances this season has drawn attention from all areas. There have been claims the 19-year-old has become frustrated by his lack of game time under Louis van Gaal while on the other hand, his agent has insisted he is more than happy to fight for his place in the team. Contrasting reports indeed.
Now, out of the blue, other reports suggest Real Madrid are circling with intentions of making a £23m bid to try and lure him over to Spain. Try as they might, United aren’t selling.
Elsewhere, Van Gaal has admitted he was foolish to put a timeframe on when he expects his philosophy at United to bear its fruits as he is now being pulled up on the orignial three month quota he gave. Despite the external pressures, Van Gaal is 100% confident his philosophy will provide the results he is after.
Ruud Gullit is trying to blame Robin van Persie’s bust-up with Klaas Jan Huntelaar for Holland’s poor performances so far in the Euro 2016 qualifying groups and believe it could cost them a spot in the final tournament.
In other news, Van Gaal has encouraged Gareth Southgate and Roy Hodgson to choose the strongest possible XI for the U21s European Championship finals next summer, so Luke Shaw, Michael Keane, Wilfried Zaha, Jesse Lingard and the likes could feature in the competition.
