Manchester United active in January

Manchester United will be active during the January transfer window.

That’s according to the Manchester Evening News, who claim Ed Woodward plans to recruit providing the right players are available.

The Red Devils brought in three players over the summer with Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James signed for a combined £148million.

But with the departures of Ander Herrera, Romelu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez – United have money to spend.

Pogba talks with Messi

Paul Pogba has spoken with Lionel Messi amid continued speculation about his future at Manchester United, according to his brother Mathias.

The World Cup winner was wanted by Real Madrid during the summer transfer window but the midfielder stayed at Old Trafford.

Yesterday, Bernabeu legend Sergio Ramos sent transfer rumours spinning when telling Pogba that the door is open at Real Madrid.

But talks with Messi could suggest that Barcelona’s stars are also sounding him out.

“I know he’s spoken with a few players, but not Sergio Ramos,” Mathias Pogba told El Chiringuito TV when asked about Ramos’ recent praise.

“Who? Oh, Lionel Messi. Sometimes, not always. Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Antoine Griezmann, because of the national team.”

Paul Pogba price

Manchester United will demand an eyewatering £178million to let Paul Pogba join Real Madrid during the transfer window.

That’s according to Catalonia newspaper Sport, who claim Los Blancos remain keen on signing the World Cup winner despite failing to strike a deal back in the summer.

The report says United held talks with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, about extending his stay at Old Trafford.

But that hasn’t deterred Real from trying to sign the 26-year-old when the transfer window reopens this winter.

Double contract talks

Manchester United are discussing new deals for Victor Lindelof and Jesse Lingard.

Lingard has entered the final two years of his Old Trafford contract. Lindelof’s contract is also set to expire in June 2021 – although United have the option to extend for another season.

Italian football journalist Nicolo Schira claims United are currently working on extensions until 2024.

“Manchester United are working to renew Victor Lindelof and Jesse Lingard until 2024. Talks ongoing,” Schira wrote on Twitter.

January Neymar decision

PSG chief Leonardo wants to sell Barcelona transfer target Neymar, according to reports.

Neymar wanted to leave the Parc des Princes for a stunning return to the Nou Camp, just two years after his controversial move away from the La Liga giants.

The European transfer deadline came and went, however, with Barcelona unable to come up with PSG’s £273million valuation needed to broker a deal.

And Tuttosport say that PSG chief Leonardo wants to get rid of Neymar when the transfer window reopens in the winter.

Neymar has agreed to stay at the Ligue 1 titans until next summer.

But Leonardo is said to be tired of speculation surrounding the Brazil international and would ideally offload the forward in January.

Lindelof not impressed… with himself

Manchester United centre-back Victor Lindelof has slammed his own performance.

The Sweden defender started Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Norway but described his display as “lousy”.

“I think I played a lousy game,” Lindelof told VG. “I have high standards. I think I just had two passes forward. I should have controlled the game more but I didn’t.

“Everything was bad from our side. We had all the preconditions to play a good game. We played at home, with fantastic fans, against Norway, but we lose two points. Why? I have no idea.”
