Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Anthony Martial is set to miss Manchester United’s crucial game against West Ham United on Tuesday night but is hoping to be fit for the club’s final league match of the season against Bournemouth, according to The Telegraph. The Frenchman picked up an injury during the warm-up before kick-off at Carrow Road on Saturday and has not been passed fit for the visit to Upton Park on Tuesday night.

Paris Saint-Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed speculation surrounding his future transfer will be over very soon. The Swedish striker is out of contract at the Parc des Princes at the end of the season and has previously hinted he would be willing to move to the Premier League.

European football expert Andy Brassell says Man United are set to sign SL Benfica’s Renato Sanches in a deal which will be worth €80m overall. Benfica’s president Luis Felipe Vieira was in Manchester last week finalising the payment schedule for Sanches and reports in the days following that back in his native Portugal suggested the 18-year-old was ready to complete his move to Old Trafford.

Chris Smalling has admitted that he is prioritising results over performances as Man United look to secure a top four finish in the Premier League. Man United put in a dismal display against Norwich City but they managed to secure the three points thanks to Juan Mata’s second-half strike.
