It’s that phase of the year when after the end of any transfer window a typical silence pervades. It’s quite natural. You do not expect clubs to remain busy with transfer dealings day in day out and especially when the transfer window is over. It’s just like preparing for exams again after the annual exams are over. Who does that?
But “we live a beautiful world” where daily newspapers, websites and tabloids spend long hours in churning out garbages to satiate our hunger – especially after a month when Premier League clubs spent the most on transfers. As a result, there is always a transfer speculation, there is always a demand for transfer news. Without further intro, let’s see what the daily drudgery has in store for us.
Manchester United were in contact with Borussia Dortmund past weekend to enquire about the availability of Marco Reus, as per Goal.
The entire story has nothing else to substantiate on the matter. It says about Reus’s €25m release clause, Dortmund’s willingness to keep him beyond the summer, United’s chances of landing him that largely depends on where they would finish this season. Put it simply, these are oft-repeated elsewhere and well known facts.
The last few paragraphs of the article ends with transfer situation of Hummels and Stoortman and United’s chances of landing them. Basically, the story has just one extra information, which Goal claims it as an inside info to that we already know.
Dortmund’s Hummels is a top priority for Louis van Gaal but Varane, who is also a reported Chelsea target, is also on the radar.
Bad news for Manchester United as Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has reportedly reached an agreement to join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
United could also make a move for Dutch midfielder Nigel de Jong; the 30-year-old is available on a free transfer at the end of the season.
