Ben Smith of the BBC has indicated according to his sources that Manchester United are looking to sign Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera today as Mesut Özil signs for Arsenal.
Özil will leaving Real Madrid for Arsenal and not Manchester United . He is undergoing his medical in Germany ahead of a the 45 million move to Arsenal.
The chances of Ander Herrera moving to Manchester United increased after he did not start against Real Madird on Sunday, postmatch his manager said “Ander has not refused to play at the Bernabéu, nor has he told us that he wants to go to United,” Valverde said. “There has been quite a stir surrounding Ander. He is fine to play. I left him out because I chose the players I thought were best suited to the game,” the manager said. “I’m not thinking about speaking to him to convince him about anything and I’m not worried about anything else.
“I haven’t spoken with the player but what I’m going to repeat is that I don’t expect the club to make any moves in the transfer market tomorrow [Monday]. I do not know what will happen. I want Ander to stay with us, and that is what I think, expect will happen.”
Even though Marouane Fellaini did start for Everton away to Cardiff City, he looks certain to move to Manchester United this afternoon, bookmakers are making him a 1/10 shot to move and 10/1 to stay at Everton.
Manchester United have had joint-bids for Fellaini and Leighton Baines rejected but they are prepared to concentrate on 25-year-old Fellaini as they feel Everton are likely to let the Belgian go. Its thought that he will cost around 24million.
