It took some heart-pounding heroics from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney to get it done but Manchester United finally ended their 8-game winless run to get three points in a 2-1 win over Swansea City. The win certainly poured a little bit of cold water onto Louis van Gaal’s seat and sets the club up for a January spending spree with plenty of high-profile targets available.
From megastars like Neymar to Mane, there are plenty of options for the Red Devils to pursue in order to help what has been a mostly frustrating team on offense.
Here is the Man United transfer roundup for Sunday:
Man Utd to trigger Neymar release clause
In a late report from the Metro, it was revealed that Man United are planning to pay the astronomical £140 million release clause in Neymar’s contract at Barcelona to bring him to Old Trafford in the summer. Such a move would likely upset the balance of power both in the Premier League and La Liga. Neymar is a Ballon d’Or finalist with over 200 career goals.
£62.5m for Sadio Mane
The Sun reported that Man United are ready to spend as much as £62.5 million for Southampton star forward Sadio Mane. The deal would reportedly include a £30 million transfer fee and a five-year deal paying over £125,000-per-week. Mane has three goals and six assists in the Premier League this season and scored 10 for the Saints last season.
