Manchester United transfer news including Gundogan and Danilo

by Phil Shearer

Here is a roundup of the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Porto right-back Danilo will join Real Madrid on a five-year deal (Globoesporte). The Brazilian defender had been touted as a potential £37m target Louis van Gaal who is no doubt going to be looking for a new right-back this summer.

Man United could be set to sign Saido Berahino (The Guardian). The speculation has intensified after the 21-year-old was spotted at Old Trafford watching on as United crashed out of the F.A. Cup. Berahino has made clear his desire to secure a move to a bigger club and having notched 12 Premier League goals already this season, Louis van Gaal could be set to bring the young star to Old Trafford.

Pedro has alerted United by declaring he is considering his future at Barcelona (InsideFutbol). The talented Spaniard has found his playing time limited under new manager Luis Enrique and will now evaluate the situation at the end of the season, leaving the door open for a potential move away from the Nou Camp. It is thought Liverpool would be keen to challenge United for the signature of the pacey attacker.

Arsenal are interested in Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling (Metro). Neither Evans or Smalling has staked a convincing claim to a regular place at United and it is expected that van Gaal will sign top quality defensive options in the summer, which could pave the way for Evans and/or Smalling to depart.

Ilkay Gundogan would prefer a move to United ahead of Liverpool or Arsenal (Daily Star). United have been linked with Gundogan regularly over the past couple of years and United are expected to sign a midfielder in the summer. The 24-year-old German has worked his way back to regular playing time following a bad injury and hopes to secure a move to Old Trafford at some stage.
