Manchester United transfer gossip: Di Maria hands in transfer request, Khedira rejects contract, Scholes says United squad not good enough

by Sam Peoples

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer gossip from around the web including Carlo Ancelotti revealing Angel di Maria has asked to leave Real Madrid, Sami Khedira has refused a new contract and the agent of Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva confirms United have made contact.

  • Carlo Ancelotti’s revelation that Angel di Maria has handed in a transfer request means the Argentinian winger will leave Madrid this summer if the right offer comes in. Khedira has also refused a new contract and it means if United wanted to make a big money move for both, Ed Woodward could pull off a real coup.
  • Lucas Silva’s agent has revealed United have been in contact with him about a move for the 21-year-old. A holding midfielder who has recently been called into Brazil’s Under-21 squad, Silva is someone who is held in high regard. However, there are some concerns over whether Silva would be able to get a working permit.
  • Paul Scholes is worried United could fall into the wilderness unless major changes happen to the current squad. It’s strange to see Scholes speaking so much after effectively being a mute as a player but few fans would disagree with his sentiments that things need to change.
