The main news for Manchester United today comes direct from one of your most respected competitors in Arsene Wenger who has confirmed the swap deal between Mkhitaryan and Sanchez is close, basically suggesting that having done 30 years worth of transfer business it appears this one is almost done but that nothing is ever guaranteed.
Bale has come up once again and looks to be competing for the “Most Linked To Manchester United Without Actually Joining” Award, currently held by Wesley Sneijder. If Bale does decide to leave Spain it won’t be during the January transfer window.
Darmian is available for the right price with rumours suggesting AC Milan and Valencia are interested however TransferListed.com and our source suggests Roma is a more likely destination.
Joao Mario will not be happening this January and a summer move is looking more and more unlikely with Mourinho preferring Milinković-Savić of Lazio and possibly a deal for Carlos Soler of Valencia. The former of which could be a very interesting signing.
Daley Blind remains of interest to Real Madrid, who in quite honesty, it probably the sort of player who would excel in that sort of setup. Again, January looks unlikely though and this will be one of those deals that are quickly arranged before the World Cup.
