Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Luke Shaw is continuing to train with Manchester United at the Aon Training Complex and took to his Twitter account to keep fans updated on his progress. Man United have been without Shaw for the majority of the season due to a horror leg injury he suffered away at PSV Eindhoven but it’s great to see he hasn’t had any setbacks just yet.

Man United are eyeing up a £25m move for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, according to the Mirror. Varane has reportedly grown frustrated at Madrid as he has been unable to break up manager Zinedine Zidane’s first-choice partnership of Sergio Ramos and Pepe.

Reports suggest Man United have turned their attentions to Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Mario after missing out on Benfica’s Renato Sanches. The 23-year-old has scored six goals in 32 appearances this season and helped Sporting to a Super Cup win over Benfica.

US sports executive Charlie Stillitano recently admitted he has been in contact with Jose Mourinho and believes he still doesn’t know where his next job in management will be. The former Chelsea boss was sacked at Stamford Bridge in December and has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as the pressure mounts on the Dutchman after an abysmal campaign.
