Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Manchester United are interested in signing Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to ESPN. His long-term future at the club has come under speculation by manager Arsene Wenger as he plans a squad overhaul this summer.

Reports suggest Man United will announce Jose Mourinho as their new manager next month after the Portuguese boss signed a deal to replace Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. He was sacked by Chelsea earlier this term and has been strongly linked with a move to Man United for a number of months.

Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Man United are ‘really close’ to signing SL Benfica midfielder Renato Sanches in a deal which would be worth €60m over a four-year period. The 18-year-old has been on our radar for some time now but this is the first indication from a reliable source that Sanches will be moving to Old Trafford this summer.

Ander Herrera has praised van Gaal and firmly believes he is ‘cooking’ a fantastic Man United team this season. The Dutchman’s career at the club has come under heavy speculation with Jose Mourinho widely expected to replace him this summer after what has been a disappointing campaign following a fourth placed finish last year.
