Manchester United - Transfer News , completed deals, players leaving, potential signings
Could Sergio Ramos be a Manchester United player soon?
Memphis Depay (PSV) £31m
The dutch forward/winger was one of the first signings of the year and although quite expensive Depay looks to be one of the bargains of the year as his ability, youth and pace look to be a big hit in Manchester.
Tom Cleverly (Everton) Free
Cleverly never quite made the impact he or Manchester United fans would have hoped for given his promising youth displays. A quality center midfielder who just isnt quite good enough for the top four , Cleverly should be a good signing for Everton.
Ben Amos (Derby) Free
A quality keeper who never quite got a run at United , Amos has signed for Derby on a free transfer. Amos could well turn out to be one that United let slip through the net but we will have to wait and see.
Saidy Janko(Celtic) Tribunal
RIght Back/Right midfielder Janko is only 19 years old and Celtic will have to pay United something for the young Swiss player but it will be decided by a tribunal. Janko spent half of last seaon on loan at Bolton where he impressed. In his first season at United he was voted reserve team player of the year and did look like he was in line to play more this season especially as United are struggling at the right back postion.
Rumours and Potential targets
This rumour is not going away and the Bayern Munich center midfielder appears to be open to the move to the Premier League and a rebuilding project at Old Trafford. He would be a terrific signing and one that could be a difference maker straight away. While I was unsure of the legitamcy of the rumours in the early window I am starting to think this could be one of the biggest transfers of the window.
The Southampton midfielder is basically the same player as Schweinsteiger so if one happens the other is unlikely, Southampton are open to selling their star midfielder as he has given good service and wants a move to a bigger club. United seem to be at the head of the que but it could take a £20m+ bid to bring the french man to Old trafford. This may be a stumbling block but I have a feeling that this is the center midfielder United want and will make it happen.
The brilliant Turkish playmaker is said to be availabe to transfer for the right fee with United actually making an offical bid a couple of days ago. Turan though is said to want a move to Chelsea to work under Mourhino and with his former team mate Diego Costa. With Chelsea already having a number of attacking center midfielders one would think they will sell to buy as Turan is one of the best in the world. I dont think United are likely to get their man here though.
One of the strangest rumours to come out in recent weeks was the potential move of Sergio Ramos to Old Trafford. But it turns out this is not a rumour anymore as Ramos has asked to be allowed to talk to United over a potential move. If this happens it could well mean that United are forced into selling David De Gea the other way but right now Ramos to United looks likely. Ramos does not want a move to any other club apparently and while this coud be posturing by the Spain defender to get a new long term deal at Madrid it does actually look like this one might happen in the coming weeks. United certainly oudl do with a quality center half and Ramos would be a huge signing for United.
Apparently Thomas Muller is quite keen on playing for Manchester United, one day. But it is unlikely to be this year, United are said to be interested in bringing the Germand center forward to Old Trafford and with Robert Lewandowski dominating the starting time at center forward Muller might have been tempted. This appears to only be pipe dream stuff though as Munich have re iterated that Muller is not for sale.
Manchester United have been consistantly linked with a move for Cavani who is said to be unhappy playing second fiddle to Zlatan at PSG. I'm not sure moving to Old Trafford and playing second fiddle to Wayne Rooney would be any better for Cavani but a move to Manchester has been a consistant rumour. With PSG interested in the services of Angel Di Maria a swap deal has been suggested, however Di Maria has been exceptional for Argentina in the Copa America and United do not want to sell their record signing. I think this particular rumour will not be happening in the near future.
