Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.
Tuesday had been dominated by Louis van Gaal’s claims that he was in the “process” of signing a mystery striker but the Dutchman dismissed the rumours by Wednesday.
Speaking after Man United’s 3-1 win against San Jose Earthquakes, van Gaal revealed that the ‘surprise’ signing isn’t a striker at all.
There will be endless speculation over the identity of the player but the fact is that no-one really knows what the situation is.
In terms of outgoings, Angel di Maria looks like he is on his way out of the club as Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly submit a £45m bid for the Argentine by this weekend.
Finally, Reece James has completed a move to Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee. The youngster was highly regarded by coaches at United but van Gaal doesn’t seem to have been convinced by him.
