Man United transfer roundup including Rodriguez, Pogba and Anderson

by Tanveer Arayan

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip.

Real Madrid have told attacking midfielder James Rodriguez he is free to leave the club this summer. Reports suggest Rodriguez is free to join Manchester United when he leaves the Bernabeu if Ed Woodward can meet the Colombian international’s £50m asking price.

Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson insists he’s surprised a move to Man United never happened last summer. The Brazilian international was the subject of a major bid from Man United last year, which was confirmed by Lazio chief Igli Tare and he had been continuously linked with a move to Old Trafford after the Italian club rejected an inquiry from Man United into the his availability.

Man United are now leading the race to sign sign Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer, according to Spanish newspaper AS. Real Madrid are believed to be unwilling to match figures the Juventus have supposedly quoted and have put negotiations on hold, meaning Man United’s determination to sign the Frenchman has seen them become favourites to land his services.

James Wilson‘s Old Trafford career could suffer due to the fairytale rise of Marcus Rashford at the back end of last season. The Sun report Wilson could be sent out on loan again to allow Rashford to continue to develop at Old Trafford after his meteoric rise. For the second half of last season, Wilson toiled in the Sky Bet Championship with Brighton & Hove Albion, narrowly missing out on automatic promotion and then losing in the playoffs.
