Man United transfer news and gossip – Varane rumours continue, Vidal linked and double Bundesliga defender raid

by Phil Shearer

As reported by The Peoples Person yesterday, Manchester United were reportedly considering a move for Raphael Varane. However, fresh reports have poured cold water on the speculation linking Varane with a move to Old Trafford. It would appear media outlets may be getting their wires crossed and drawing incorrect conclusions. Real Madrid will know that they have one of the world’s finest young centre backs on their hands and it is highly unlikely they would consider letting Varane leave the Bernabeu.

Arturo Vidal was constantly linked with a move to United throughout the summer of 2014 as covered extensively but no move ever materialised. However, the Chilean star’s name has now cropped up again and United are being credited with an interest.

Vidal is set to leave Juventus in the summer, paving the way for United to complete a deal, according to The Express. Vidal has struggled to reach his previous heights following his knee injury and is no longer the automatic choice at Juventus, with the club apparently revealing they are set to sell the midfielder in the summer transfer window.

Mats Hummels has been regularly linked with a move to United, with rumours growing as a result of United’s poor defensive performances and Borussia Dortmund’s struggles this season potentially leading to a player exodus.

Now, however, United are considering a double swoop for Mats Hummels and Benedikt Howedes, according to the Express. Both Howedes and Hummels are supposedly searching for a way out of their current clubs and Old Trafford is their preferred destination. Arsenal are also credited with an interest in the German duo.

Former United assistant manager Mike Phelan has stated that he feels Cristiano Ronaldo would consider a return to Old Trafford. The Daily Mail are reporting on Phelan’s interview with International Business Times. However, in the same interview, Phelan made clear that he did not feel Ronaldo would consider Madrid at present and that any consideration of a return to Old Trafford would be further down the line.

United are ready to move for Ilkay Gundogan as Borussia Dortmund prepare to sell the midfielder. According to The Express, United are set to rival Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool to sign the German international. It is suggested that Gundogan does not wish to extend his deal with Dortmund and is looking to move on, Gundogan has previously stated his desire to play in either Spain or England if he leaves Germany.

Teddy Bishop of Ipswich is a £10 million target for United, according to Talk Sport. After a series of impressive performances, United are reportedly interest in signing the English midfield starlet. Arsenal are also credited with an interest in the 18 year old and could challenge United for his signature.
