Man Utd transfer news: Neymar in with Pogba and Martial out to PSG?

Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to trade in duo, plus £50m, for PSG and Brazil superstar Neymar

Is Neymar set for Old Trafford?

He may have delivered what some newspapers are calling his best 45 minutes ever in a Manchester United shirt on Saturday, but will that be enough to save Paul Pogba’s Old Trafford career?

The Daily Star claims that United boss Jose Mourinho is negotiating a deal that would see Pogba and Anthony Martial head to Paris Saint-Germain in return for Neymar. 

The 26-year-old Brazilian striker moved to the French capital from Barcelona last summer, but rumours have been rife that he is unsettled at PSG and could leave in the next few months.

Currently recovering from injury, Neymar has been linked with Real Madrid in recent months, but according to the Star, United are willing to give up Martial and Pogba - who was inspirational in United’s 3-2 comeback against Manchester City on Saturday - “plus around £50m”, in order to sign him.

Farewell for Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini’s time at Old Trafford looks to be over, with the Daily Express reporting that the Belgian midfielder is hopeful of making a move to Roma over the summer. 

The 30-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and although Mourinho would love him to sign a new deal, Fellaini has “little appetite” for another stint at Old Trafford, the newspaper says.

It wasn’t so long ago that Turkish outfit Besiktas were leading the chase for Fellaini’s signature, but according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, “the Belgian would rather join Roma”.

His final decision is likely to rest on whether Roma, currently third in the Serie A table, qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Meanwhile, reports in France say that Liverpool are preparing a “shock move” for Fellaini and will offer him a three-year deal. 

Gomes goes quiet

Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes has distanced himself from recent transfer speculation linking him to a move to Old Trafford, says Goal.com

The Portugal international playmaker has struggled to make his mark at the Camp Nou, leading to gossip that he could be lining up for a big-money move to Manchester in the summer.

The football news site reports that the Red Devils “are leading the chase”, with AC Milan also expressing interest.

However, the 24-year-old is staying shtum about his footballing future. Speaking to Spain's Barca TV channel at the weekend, Gomes said: “Right now I do not think about that. I am enjoying myself and living the dream that all children want to live.”
