August has begun, and Manchester United have just over four weeks left to complete any transfer dealings before the window slams shut until January. Jose Mourinho has done some great work, and with the season starting in just two weeks, he’ll have to get a move on.
Today’s gossip includes reports suggesting that Mourinho’s transfer business won’t be complete when Paul Pogba signs, and in fact, he could be looking at bringing in players in two more positions.
There is also news about possible outgoings. The MEN say that United could be about to sell Adnan Januzaj on a permanent deal if the right offer comes in. On top of that, they add they’ll be likely loan moves for both Andreas Pereira and Paddy McNair.
Another man linked with a move away is Bastian Schweinsteiger, but the German international doesn’t plan on going anywhere, anytime soon.
