by Tanveer Arayan

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Anthony Martial has claimed he is not paying attention to rumours suggesting that Jose Mourinho could replace Louis van Gaal at Manchester United this summer. The Frenchman has been in excellent form under van Gaal this season, scoring his 13th goal in all competitions against Everton on Sunday.

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that former Man United goalkeeping coach Eric Steele convinced him to sign David de Gea in 2011. Man United were heavily linked with Manuel Neuer, who played for Schalke at the time, but opted to sign De Gea from Atletico Madrid instead.

Van Gaal has admitted that Romelu Lukaku could be a “candidate” for Man United to sign this summer. The Belgian recently claimed that he is looking to make the “next step” in his career with Champions League football and van Gaal hinted Lukaku could be on Man United’s radar.

Lastly, a number of Man United players want Ryan Giggs to replace van Gaal as manager if the Dutchman leaves Old Trafford this summer, according to MailOnline. There is a feeling among the squad that van Gaal is a “grandpa” whose tactics and management style are outdated.
