Manchester United Transfer news 06/01/2015
Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is in the market for a number of new recruits to upgrade his Red Devils team to Premier League contenders level, among those in the rumour mill this week are as follows:
Carlos Bacca (Sevilla)
The Sevilla striker who scored twice in the Europa League final is being linked with a move to United or so it is being reported in The Metro, while it is a possibility I cant see Sevilla letting their best player depart after earning a shot at the Champions League next season. The deeply religious Bacca looks right at home at Sevilla and I think he stays there. If everyone is fit at United this season (Van Persie, Rooney, Di Maria and Mata) then I cant see Bacca getting into the side so mark this one down as unlikely but not impossible.
Morgan Schneiderlein ( Southampton)
After another successful and impressive season at Southampton, Schneiderlein is said to be keen on a move to a Champions League team, Arsenal and Manchester United are the favourites to land the french man but with Arsenal already quite strong across the midfield this is a good fit for United. Needing a player than can replace the ageing Michael Carrick this would be a good move for both the club and the player. I think this one is likely to happen.
Ikay Gundogan (Borussia Dortmund)
Speaking of talented midfielders Gundogan has been getting slated in the German press for his less than impressive display in the DFB Cup final on Saturday and having already stated his intentions to leave the club this summer it would appear Gundogan has moved very close to the exit door already. Gundogan is a good player and would fit in at any of the top clubs in Europe, it appears as though Louis Van Gaal is keen on his arrival and I think this is another one that could likely happen
