Man Utd transfer round-up: David Brooks boost, Gabriel favours Arsenal move

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United remain at the centre of transfer speculation this summer.

Despite the window running until October 5, the Red Devils’ hierarchy will be keen to get some business done in the near future amid multiple transfer sagas that could drag out for the next six weeks.

The restart of the Premier League on September 12, too, shows how soon fixtures will come back around and United remain in the market for several players. Whether they can land those targets remains to be seen, but what we do know is that Solskjaer is keen to address a number of areas.

If United are to close the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City next season, adding one or two world class players and further squad players may be needed.

Such a sizable gap from their fierce rivals suggests that this transfer window will be far from straightforward if they are able to catch up with both sides who have dominated domestic football for the last few seasons.

Here are the latest Manchester United transfer rumours.



Gabriel Magalhaes is close to an Arsenal move

Gabriel ‘rejects’ United offer to sign for Arsenal

Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes is reportedly set to join Arsenal after turning down a big money move to Old Trafford.

That is according to Brazilian transfer expert Vinicius Furlan who claims that United were willing to offer a higher salary than the Gunners.

It is understood that the 22-year-old defender is in the process of completing a move to Arsenal with a deal possibly announced in the coming days.

Despite United having some viable alternatives, Gabriel’s reported transfer snub could raise some question marks over the club’s attraction.



David Brooks is set to leave the relegated side

United handed boost in Brooks pursuit

The Red Devils could have just been handed a big boost in their hopes of signing Bournemouth attacker David Brooks.

Despite no contact between the two clubs, Brooks is understood to be one of several targets that United are looking at to add depth in attacking areas.

Jason Tindall, Bournemouth’s new boss, has since spoken out on the possibility of key players leaving this summer amid increased interest. He noted that the Cherries won’t be forced to sell but, in equal measure, won’t stand in a player’s way if the right money is offered.

He told the Bournemouth Echo: “We as a football club have got a value of what we believe for our players.

“And if that value is met then players have got the opportunity to then discuss with whoever they need to discuss with and then make the decision they feel is right for them.

“But first and foremost, it needs to be right for the football club and once it’s right for the football club then, as you’ve seen in the past, I don’t think it’s a club that will stand in anybody’s way providing that the club’s happy with and it meets the valuation of the player.”

Everton join list of clubs chasing Smalling signature

Everton have reportedly joined multiple Premier League clubs in the race to sign Chris Smalling this summer.

The 30-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell away from Old Trafford last season with Serie A side Roma.

While the centre back is believed to favour a permanent move to Roma, 90 min report that Everton have joined Newcastle United and West Ham as clubs interested in acquiring his services.

Despite falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, it appears that United won’t have any issues with finding buyers for Smalling in this transfer window.
