With less than 24 hours to go until the transfer window shuts, its been a busy day for Manchester United. With one coming in and so far, three going out. With maybe more to come, both ins and outs.
Lets start with the one player who looks to be arriving at Old Trafford. That’s French forward Anthony Martial, who looks set to arrive at Old Trafford for a fee believed to be in the region of £36million if not more. Whatever the price, he is set to become the most expensive teenage in the game. He has arrived at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground for his medical, with the deal set to be completed today. Allowing the player to re-join the French national team on Tuesday morning.
De Gea Agreement In Place
De Gea much talked about transfer to Real Madrid looks set to be completed finally, the Spanish window closes at midnight tonight. Therefore Madrid will be desperate to complete the move in the next few hours. The player is already in Spain with the national squad. It is believed that the two clubs have agreed a fee in the region of £29million with Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas. It is believed hinges on whether Navas agrees to move in the opposite direction.
Two players have definitely left Manchester are Adnan Januzaj and Javier Hernandez, with both players moving to Germany and the Bundesliga.
Januzaj joins Borussia Dortmund on a season-long loan, Januzaj looked like he could be given more of a chance this season, having started the previous four games before yesterday’s game against Swansea. Reports in Germany say that Dortmund have the option to buy Januzaj at the end of the season, but that hasn’t been confirmed by either clubs.
Hernandez joins Bayer Leverkusen on a permanent deal in deal believed to be in the region of £9million, he was an unused sub for United in yesterday’s lost. Appearing to be the final nail in the coffin of his United career, following a loan spell at Real Madrid last year. In his time with Unite he scored 59 goals in 159 games and won the Premier League twice.
Anders Lindegaard is also leaving the club, heading to West Brom on a free transfer. He will be joining Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans at The Hawthorns.
