Manchester United transfer roundup: De Gea update, Bale offer and more

Praveen R. Paramasivam / 28 January 2016

Manchester United have slumped to a different level of crisis with their playing style, attitude and managerial decisions making headlines frequently, and January transfer business does not seem to better their situation though they have received a major boost in Gareth Bale and David de Gea deals.

Robert Lewandowski favours summer Real Madrid move

The Bayern Munich striker has widely been linked with the Red Devils, with Chelsea and Manchester City expected to make it difficult for them, but fresh reports from the British media now claim that he would likely favour a move to Estadio Bernabeu, thus thrashing the advances of Louis van Gaal in the process. However, the tide may change should Pep Guardiola surprisingly moves to Old Trafford this summer.

David de Gea set to extend his England stay

Florentino Perez has announced that the Real Madrid will not make winter signings, notwithstanding a nascent transfer ban, so David de Gea will likely don the Manchester United strip at least until next summer. 

Louis van Gaal throws a spanner on defender’s loan deal

Guillermo Varela’s loan move to Genoa has fallen through, despite Manchester United agreeing to send the Uruguayan defender toStadio Luigi Ferraris before the winter transfer window slams shut, as Louis van Gaal prefers to keep hold of the youngster as long as he is at the helm. Injuries to a host of players, including Luke Shaw, Marcus Rojo, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia has forced the Dutch manager to block the transfer.

Sevilla set to receive late bid for Ever Banega

The Manchester United gaffer looks to add to his injury-stricken squad by adding the talented midfielder to their ranks. The Old Trafford club have been scouting the Sevilla man for quite some time now, and a late bid is likely on the cards as they look to secure Champions League qualification next season. With Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini struggling to hit form, the interest looks comprehensible.

Gareth Bale back on Manchester United’s radar

Louis van Gaal is apparently under immense scrutiny to land an attacking reinforcement as his side looks toothless in front of the goal, and it is now murmured that Manchester United have offered a ludicrous amount of money to entice Gareth Bale, who has notched 13 goals this season. However, it seems unlikely, as Real Madrid have been slapped with a transfer ban that would stop them from replacing him.
