Manchester United Transfers: One in, one out, one jilted and one wants to stay – reports

Schweinsteiger could be offski

Many of you Manchester United fans will rejoice when the season finally gets under way and the squad reshuffle is complete.

Because, with rumour and hype at fever pitch, it’s often difficult to work out what The Dickens is actually going on in the transfer market.

Today brought loads more of those speculatory beauties in relation to Manchester United and here they are for you, in bitesized form.

One In:

The Manchester Evening News reports that Paul Pogba to Manchester United is effectively a done deal and that the club is set to announce the world record transfer. Quite when, we still haven’t got a clue. It appears to us that only Pogba and Raiola themselves have any idea what is going on.


One Out:

Jose has apparently told Adnan Januzaj that he is surplus to requirements at Manchester United and is free to leave. The Manchester Evening News writes:

According to Gazzetta dello Sport , Lazio are keen on a loan deal – but United and Januzaj would both prefer a permanent agreement.

One jilted:

There has been widespread scorn poured on Jose Mourinho for reportedly making Bastian Scwheinsteiger train with the reserves.

The BBC picks up on this one:

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho should be sent to jail for “bullying” Bastian Schweinsteiger, claims a member of world players’ union FifPro.

It has to be said that Basti hasn’t had the best of times since he joined Manchester United, but his £150,000 per week salary seems like more than fair compensation to TFF. It’s a hard life for footballers isn’t it?

One wants to stay:

Sky Sports, among many others, is reporting that despite intense speculation about his future, Marcos Rojo is desperate to stay at the club and fight for this place.

The 26-year-old Argentine international, with 49 caps to his name already, has so far endured a Manchester United career blighted by injury. His pre-season form has been somewhat questionable too.

But Sky reports:

Marcos Rojo has no interest in leaving Manchester United, Sky sources understand.

We are now on the fence about Rojo. Manchester United supporters: should he stay or should he go?
