Manchester United transfer gossip: £59.7m Di Maria fee agreed, Blind deal done, Vidal interest grows

by Sam Peoples

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer gossip from around the web including a £59.7m fee being agreed for Real Madrid winger Angel di Maria and the re-appearance of reports linking Arturo Vidal with United.

  • Angel di Maria is set to be officially announced as a United player today after a £59.7m fee was agreed with Real Madrid. It’s a phenomenal fee but is in line with market trends and for a player of Di Maria’s quality, you simply have to pay over the odds or you won’t sign them.
  • Arturo Vidal links have cropped up again in earnest and it is being suggested the Chilean midfielder will be the focus of United’s pushes for the remainder of this transfer window.
  • In another link with Juventus, the Italian club are believed to be interested in signing Javier Hernandez, something which could well tie in with any pursuit of Vidal.
  • Elsewhere, Andy Mitten reports that United scouts in Holland are confident a deal for Daley Blind has already been done. At this stage, the reports are unconfirmed but Andy wouldn’t discuss them on camera without believing the information was strong enough to relay to others.
