Here is the latest Man Utd transfer news and talk from the last 24 hours including reports of a world record deal for David de Gea, the latest updates on Manchester United’s injury problems and Paul Scholes reveals his concerns about Man City academy.
David de Gea is set to become the world’s richest goalkeeper with a new £36.4m five-year contract according to reports which would be nothing less than he deserves.
Ahead of Louis van Gaal‘s press conference at 4pm this afternoon there have been some injury updates. Angel di Maria could be in line to return against Liverpool having been working on his rehabilitation following a hamstring injury. United fans are hoping the Argentinian is back in action because his influence on the team was sorely missed away to Southampton.
Elsewhere, there has been a triple injury boost as Ashley Young has declared himself fit to face Liverpool and Phil Jones has returned to training. The latest reports also suggest Jonny Evans is in line to make his first start since the 5-3 defeat to Leicester back in October. Finally, some all round good injury news.
In other news, Louis van Gaal was delighted to see Robin van Persie back on form and felt his performance against Southampton was his best of the season. There’s no disagreeing with that and going into the Liverpool game, the Dutchman should be high on confidence.
To finish, Paul Scholes has revealed he is worried Man City will now become the first choice place for youngsters in Manchester after they opened a £200m academy.
