Manchester United transfer roundup: Sergio Romero set for medical this weekend

by Ben Topliss

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Various reports in the last few days have suggested that Man United are preparing to activate Pedro’s £22m release clause.

The Barcelona winger had been linked with a move to Chelsea after falling down the pecking order at the Camp Nou but it appears that Louis van Gaal has stolen a march over his rivals.

Meanwhile, Sergio Romero will reportedly undergo a medical before he can complete his move to United.

Romero would more than likely replace Victor Valdes who is said to be negotiating a move to the MLS after falling out with Louis van Gaal.

Finally, Van Gaal has been commenting on claims that United are short on numbers up front.

He has confirmed that Javier Hernandez will get a chance to prove himself for next season but also claimed there could be a ‘surprise’ when it comes to the position. Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, as has Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
