Djibril Sidibe could be on his way to Manchester United as transfer talks look imminent

United fans will be happy to see their club moving quickly to get business done this summer after what has to go down as a disappointing season.

While the Red Devils can still win the FA Cup this weekend, they finished far behind Manchester City in the Premier League and exited the Champions League in a tame round-of-16 defeat to Sevilla.
