Manchester united transfer news
Any football team has to transfer some players, and buy others for the good of the team. Before a player is transferred, an analysis of the performance of every player is analyzed. Every player has his worth depending on the goals that he has scored, and the performance at the field. Some players are more valuable than others and transferring the less valuable ones adds the profit of the team.
When a player is bought by a football club, he has to perform for him to stay there. That’s why some teams cling to their payers for a long time because of their value. An example is David Degea who was signed by Alex Ferguson from Atletico Madrid in 2011. He still plays for the team. His contract will end next year but if he keeps on being as impressive as he is, he is going to staying the team longer because the contract might be renewed.
Manchester united transfer news 2018
The season 2017/2018 has been a very tight season and there have also been surprises during the different matches. This led to many clubs breaking the bank and buying new players or even loaning players. Manchester United is one of the clubs that spent a lot on players for this season. The year 2018 was a very busy period for the club since there were very many speculations in January during the short transfer window. There are also many Manchester united transfer news and rumours. Some of the players that were linked to the high profile club, Manchester United transfer news are:
1. Alexis Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez who is a Chile international, played for Arsenal Football Club. He is a winger who can also play as a striker and has skills that Manchester United’s coach really admired that he added him to their shortlist. He was quite unhappy at Arsenal and was dissatisfied about them not winning elite trophies and since his contract was almost ending, he opted to go to Manchester united. They managed to buy him in a swap deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to the rival side to join his former team mate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. There was no information given on how much the transfer fee was.
Manchester City, arch rivals to Manchester United also targeted Alexis Sanchez and was head over heels in pursuit for him so as to fortify their attacking options. Alex is very good at what he does. So far he has won many goals for arsenal. He is a professional and very fast in the field. His tackling skills are on top and he is a asset to arsenal. As much as he may transfer to another team, am sure he will make the best out of that team. Hopefully, let us hope he goes to Manchester united. For the arsenal fans, you might get a better replacement.
2. Lucas Moura
Manchester United had opened talks with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) regarding a potential deal for Lucas Moura, a Brazil international, at least according to Le 10 sport. The world class Brazilian winger barely featured for Paris Saint Germain this season and had previously agreed personal terms with the Chinese side Beijing Guoan in early December of 2017. The deal turned sour as Lucas was determined to join a major European club. Chelsea had previously shown an interest in the 25 year old, but Manchester United seemed favorites to sign him.
There was a real contest to sign this player by several teams; however, the offer made by United was below Paris Saint Germain’s valuation of the player. Things went haywire however after Tottenham signed the player for twenty five million sterling pounds. Manchester would have signed him if they increased their price. I believe in the future, Lucas might get to another team. So far, am positive that he will score for Tottenham.
3. Antoinne Griezmann
Manchester United has interests in Antoinne Griezmann, a French international who poses as a striker. Jose Mourinho is ready to pull out all the stops to land the prolific Atletico Madrid marksman in the summer. There were attempts of buying him in the January transfer window but things did not go as planned. Manchester is in need of reinforcements up top immediately since they only have one prolific striker, who if injured, will cause havoc at the Old Trafford.
Mourinho is willing to offer Antoinne three hundred thousand sterling pounds a week to get him to leave Atletico and snub Barcelona, who are also keen in getting the striker at the Camp Nou. Let us hope that he takes the offer because the next season will be on fire just like this one. football is made up of the players. Without them then a game is as good as nothing. For the gamblers, place your odds at Gritzman and am sure there will be no dissapointments.
4. Pablo Dybala
Manchester United have lined up a move to sign Juventus front man, Pablo Dybala who has been instrumental in helping the team win very crucial games, both in the league and the champion's league. The striker starred in the 3-1 win against Real Madrid though they were knocked out in the quarter finals of the champions league after a controversial penalty was awarded and later converted by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United are hoping that Paul Pogba who was previously in Juventus manages to sweet talk Dybala into making a move to United, according to the Mirror. Mourinho has now placed Dybala at the top of his summer transfer shortlist and is counting on Pogba to convince Dybala to move to Manchester.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
Manchester United are closely observing the relationship between Cristiano and the senior Real Madrid figures after there was a clash between both parties, at least according to the Mirror. The newspaper further states that an understanding between the world class player and Florentino Perez was not reached. United are determined to bring back the forward after observing that there are disagreements between them. They seem favorites of signing the player who came to prominence should he refuse to continue in Spain. Ronaldo is even claimed to have made secret trips to England in order to review prospective private schools for his son in recent weeks. He was among the people who were talked about on Manchester united transfer news January.

There have been claims that he has been ear marked by United as the ideal midfield replacement for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, at least according to the Sun. Henrikh was involved in a swoop with Alexis Sanchez as he joined Arsenal and Alexis joined Manchester. Joao was linked to Manchester had the Armenian been included in a swoop along with a forty million sterling pound cash splash.
7. Marco Reus
Marco currently plays for Borrusia Dortmund. Currently he is 29 and he will turn 30 next year. Marco plans to take one last big contract but there is speculation that he might be signed by Manchester united or arsenal. Reus is quite open about the idea and he does not mind one last big contract. If I were him, I would also grab the opportunity. He plays as a forward. Unfortunately, he has had a series of injuries and this had effect on his ligaments. His fans are happy for him if at all he gets to sign the contract to play with the red devils. We cannot dispute that he is a football professional and he deserves nothing but the best. He is among the people talked about at the EPL transfer news Manchester united
8. Neymar Jr
Neymar plays as a forward for Paris Saint Germain. Neymar has won a lot of honors since he started football. He is a very competent player who showed his expertise at the FIFA Federations cup back in 2013. Until today, big teams want to buy him because he is very fast in the field and his tackling skills are simply professional. When betting, bet for Neymar as a goal scorer and you will not be disappointed, so far, he has won 53 goals in 83 matches. He is indeed a professional and currently among the most expensive players. Neymar is a footballer to watch out for because he is always on the winning side. Let’s hope he gets to Manchester United and probably, they might win the cup next time.
9. Luka modric
Luka is a 32 year old player who currently plays for Real Madrid. He is a midfielder and he is very good at what he does. He has been named the Croatian footballer of the year 6 times and he scores for his team most of the time. Betting for Luka would make you richer because he does not disappoint. For this reason, he is rich and also very expensive. This is the reason why most teams want him to play for them. Luka played since he was a child and until today, he is a star. His expertise in football is still on top of the game.
This summer will be full of changes. There are also speculations that Manchester united is hutting for Luka. He might move back to England because he was was previously playing for tottenham. If the red devils take Luka to their team, then Manchester will improve greatly. I would bet for Luka anytime because he is a very stable player.
Paul Pogba is a 25 year old French player who plays for Manchester united. He is a midfielder who previously played for Juventus. Since he joined Manchester however, his game has changed. Rumor has it that he plays well when he gets angry and this is a drawback for Pogba. He might leave the club but if he does, the fans should not be disappointed because better and more qualified players will join the club. Paul is in fact very experienced, which is one of the reasons why he is in the Manchester united. We hope to see more changes this summer. This changes might make Manchester united the biggest club or not, depending on the players that they decide to sign in.

Manchester United had agreed a four million sterling pound fee to sell goal keeper Sam Johnstone to West Brom, according to the TEAM talk. Johnstone is currently on loan at Aston Villa, but United had an intention of selling the twenty four year old after recalling him, which did not happen. With Johnstone out of contract at the end of the season, United might just off load him to West Brom.
