I hope he’s worth the hype’ – Man United fans react to transfer update

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want to sign Anthony Martial from Manchester United in the summer transfer window. Manchester City dropped out of the race for his signature last month, leaving Manchester United on pole position to sign him.

Manchester City had been the original frontrunners for Fred, who had set his sights on a move to the Premier League champions in January.

City and United rarely do business in the transfer market and in the case of City saying "no deal", Nixon reports that Mourinho also has veterans Craig Gordon and Ben Foster on a short list, with Argentina goalkeeper Romero wanting a move to secure regular football.

The Italian, 28, has a year left on his contract and started only five Premier League games for United during the season just completed.

In any event, Milinkovic-Savic's similarity to Pogba in terms of the space they like to operate arguably makes Fred a better fit for the starting eleven, and at half the asking price.

Martial has found himself on the fringes of Jose Mourinho's first-team since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January and, after missing out on a place in France's World Cup squad, it is claimed he could look to revive his career elsewhere this summer.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United intend to wrap up a deal for the Brazilian before the World Cup gets underway in June. And we had enough strength to reject it, because we were playing in the Champions League, we were finishing the Ukrainian League campaign.

"He will cost the potential buyer more than Fernandinho and be even more expensive than Alex Teixeira".

"If Fred won Brazil caps and go to the World Cup, this indicates that Shakhtar has gathered a very strong and quality player".

Jose Mourinho will look to add reinforcements to his squad to challenge on all fronts next season.
