Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.
Manchester United are pressing as hard as possible in their pursuit of Paul Pogba following Real Madrid’s decision to no longer chase after the 23-year-old, according to reports. The Frenchman, who left Old Trafford in 2012 on a free transfer, is set to respond to Man United’s world record bid of over £100m next week.
Former Man United striker Diego Forlan has backed Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jose Mourinho to succeed at Old Trafford. The Portuguese boss was appointed as Louis van Gaal‘s sucessor last month and has already signed Eric Bailly, Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Jose Mourinho claims his arrival at Man United represents a ‘new chapter’ for the club. Mourinho’s arrival in June was greeted with rapturous acclaim, with many believing Sir Alex Ferguson’s appropriate successor had been finally appointed following three tumultuous years under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.
