Despite Louis van Gaal insisting there will be no more arrivals at Manchester United this month they've been linked with late moves for Mats Hummels and Kevin De Bruyne by the Daily Express. Hummels has been linked with the Red Devils (and a host of other clubs) throughout the month but could finally leave Borussia Dortmund today. Bruyne, the former Chelsea player, has been impressing at Wolfsburg this term and even score a double in the recent 4-1 league win over the previously undefeated Bayern Munich.

Marquinhos is still being linked with a move to Manchester United. According to The Sun, a £35m bid for Brazilian defender was lodged with Paris St Germain on Sunday, however the French champions turned it down. Apparently that hasn't put United off and they remain hopeful of securing a deal.

According to the Manchester Evening News there could still be an exit from Old Trafford today with Adnan Januzaj linked with a loan move. PSG have been the club most consistently cited as his destination but the local paper are reporting that the 19-year-old could join Everton. Other reports state Van Gaal wants to see the Belgium international remain and fight for his place.



Mixed news on David De Gea. According to The Mirror the Spanish stopper is ready to put pen to paper on a new deal with Manchester United but his advisors are insisting that a release clause is inserted in the contract. The Spain international has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid. He has 17 months to run on his current deal which puts the power in his hands when it comes to negotiations.

Darren Fletcher's exit from Old Trafford isn't completely off either. The vice-captain was told he could leave this month and had been expected to join West Ham. That deal fell through but West Brom have apparently stepped in and could convince the midfielder to join their battle against relegation.
