Transfer News Today: Manchester United Fans' Favourite Told To Leave

Tabloid Gossip I

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has told Danny Welbeck he can leave the club, with Tottenham and Arsenal believed to be interested in the £15m-rated forward.

Deal or No Deal? The potential departure of Welbeck hasn’t been well received by United’s fans, but you’d have thought that a move to Tottenham would give him the playing time he craves. Deal.

Tabloid Gossip II

Arsenal are ready to bid for the West Ham and New Zealand defender Winston Reid, who will be out of contractat the end of this season.

Deal or No Deal? Reid has long been underrated, but with Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and probably Calum Chambers ahead of him in the pecking order he’d be wise to stay put for now. No deal.

The Hammers are 3.15 to win at Palace tomorrow


Tabloid Gossip III

Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic faces being squeezed out of the Etihad Stadium following the arrival of Eliaquim Mangala. Nastasic is a target for both Juventus and Roma.

Deal or No Deal? The Serbian defender now surely needs a move if he isn’t to see a promising career fall by the wayside, and either Serie A giant would suit him. Deal.

Deal or No Deal? Deal, and what a deal! £16m for the eccentric forward looks to be an absolute steal, and Balotelli is certain to be box office for the Reds.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered

Greek forward Georgios Samaras has moved to West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer, moving back to the Premier League after six years at Celtic.

Will he be a success? The former Manchester City man is a bit of a left-field signing by Baggies boss Alan Irvine, and not exactly an inspiring one.
