Transfer News Today: Man Utd Target Skips Training As Move Edges Closer


Pulling A Sickie

Manchester United target Morgan Schneiderlin skipped the first day back in pre-season training at Southampton as he looks to force through a move to Old Trafford. Schneiderlin claimed to be suffering from a ‘mystery illness.’

Will he get his move? Probably. The Frenchman was denied a transfer away last summer and it is very rare that happens two years in a row. Arsenal and Spurs remain interested but United is his preferred choice.

Arsenal are readying a huge bid for Napoli forward and serial misser of chances in Argentina’s finals, Gonzalo Higuain.

He does love a miss in a final. Ah, but his quality is undoubted and he’d be a fine addition to the Gunners’ ranks.

Tottenham are close to finally ending Roberto Soldado’s miserable time in England, with a £12m move back to Spain with Villarreal reportedly close to completion.

That did not go well. It didn’t. Soldado’s time in England has been nothing short of disastrous, and he really needs the move to resurrect his career.

Spurs are 7.50 to finish in the top four in 2015/16

 

We Need To Talk About Kevin

After making no breakthrough in their attempt to sign Raheem Sterling, Manchester City are now prepared to pay £50m for Wolfsburg and Belgium winger Kevin De Bruyne.

The same guy who didn’t do much at Chelsea? Well, yes, but De Bruyne has grown into a fine player during his time in Germany and he’d be a great signing for a City side needing an injection of youth.

De Bruyne is 2.50 to move to City this summer

Charlie Austin has decided that Newcastle United are his preferred destination this summer, and the QPR forward is set to complete a £12m move to Tyneside in the coming days.

That would be a good signing. They love their No. 9s at St James’s Park, and Austin could easily become a club legend there. 

Should he move to the Premier League, Austin is 61.00 to win the Golden Boot in 2015/16
