Here is today’s Manchester United transfer news and gossip roundup.
Manchester United will attempt to sign Nathaniel Clyne in January, say ESPN. The right-back has been in impressive form for Ronald Koeman’s Southampton and his performances have caught the eye of Louis van Gaal. United currently lack a solid option at right-back with Antonio Valencia often being deployed in the right wing back position. The report suggests Van Gaal would like to sign Clyne as soon as this month but prising him from Southampton this month is a big ask.
United are interested in signing Dani Alves as the right back’s future at Barcelona looks in doubt. Despite being a regular in Barcelona’s side, Alves will soon be out of contract and his future remains in doubt. Alves is approaching the latter stages of his career and it would perhaps be surprising if Van Gaal opted for Alves instead of looking for a younger option such as Nathaniel Clyne or Seamus Coleman, both of whom have Premier League experience.
Majeed Waris is a target for United say The Express. The Ghanaian international currently plies his trade with Turkish side Trabzonspor and the club president has indicated that a number of English clubs are monitoring the situation of the £5 million rated winger, including United. United scouts have reportedly been watching 23-year-old Waris with a view to bringing him to Old Trafford. Despite being on duty in the African Cup of Nations, The Express suggest Waris could be a United player as soon as this month.
