It’s just three weeks left to the end of the transfer window, Manchester United are on the front foot to bring in new recruitments before the window shuts down on October 5th.
Here are the updates making the news rounds today.
Gareth Bale ‘stance’ on Madrid loan exit
Gareth Bale is not interested in leaving Real Madrid on loan this summer – according to reports.
United have been linked with a move for the Welshman as an alternative to signing Jadon Sancho this summer. Dortmund are adamant that the English man will not leave his summer.
Nevertheless, The Daily Mail suggests the 4-time Champions League winner wants to leave the club permanently rather than on a short-term loan.
Bale also has refused to take any pay cut if he’s to move from Real Madrid.
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has signed a new 5years contract that will keep him at Villa park till 2025.
The English attacking midfielder was tipped to join Manchester United after his stellar performance last season. United instead opted to sign Donny Van de Beek due to Grealish transfer fee as the Dutchman came for a far lesser feel of £40m.
Manchester United are unlikely to sign any midfielder this summer as they are well stuck in that department.
Gullit warns Van de Beek
Dutch legend Ruud Gullit has warned Manchester United new boy Donny van de Beek that adapting to life in the Premier League will be difficult.
“I look forward to seeing Donny van de Beek at Manchester United.
“What immediately occurred to me is that he should be careful not to become a second Davy Klaassen. Van de Beek is a younger copy of Davy in terms of play.
He added that Donny Van de Beek must get used to the added scrutiny that comes with playing for a club like Manchester United.
He also stated that attacking football will favor Donny’s playing style as opposed to fellow Dutchman Klassen who flopped at Everton.
Manchester United are being linked with Serbia’s Uros Rasic
The Valencia man who spent two previous seasons has been scouted. He posses great defensive abilities and a perfect range of passes and could easily slot in as a defensive Midfielder behind Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes.
It is unlikely that United will sign any other midfielder after completing a move for former Ajax star Donny Van de Beek.
