Manchester United transfer roundup: Jonny Evans undergoing medical with West Brom

by Ben Topliss

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Jonny Evans will undergo a medical tonight with West Brom and looks set to complete his exit from Man United for a reported £8m fee after spending his entire career so far at the club.

Evans was expected to leave United this summer having never been in Louis van Gaal‘s plans and a move to Premier League side West Brom would represent a great opportunity for him to reinvigorate his career.

Louis van Gaal was cagey when asked about transfers and the future of Valdes during his press conference. He said that United will make an announcement if anything happens in the final days of the window and that the press will not receive an update on Valdes’ situation “at the moment”.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale reiterated that it is a “dream” to play for Real Madrid despite rumours linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

Bale staying at Madrid means it is unlikely that David de Gea will be going to the Bernabeu, but he was still called up to the Spain squad by Vincent Del Bosque despite his absence from Louis van Gaal’s squads this season.

Peter Schmeichel labelled the situation surrounding De Gea as an “absolute joke” and criticised United for letting the uncertainty run into the campaign.

United fans will be hoping the lack of transfer rumours is just the calm before the storm but the likelihood is that van Gaal is happy with his options and that there will be no new arrivals between now and the end of the window.
