Manchester United confident of agreeing £75m transfer for 26-year-old star

Charlie the dog from Greenwood approves of the blue boathouse's new look

With players like Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic's futures at the club being uncertain, United are in the market for a central midfielder and are also looking for an alternative option in defence just in case they aren't able to land Harry Maguire.

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - DECEMBER 30: Romelu Lukaku of Manchester United celebrates after scoring his team's fourth goal during the Premier League match between Manchester United and AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford on December 30, 2018 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Manchester United chose to increase their original demands following Mino Raiola's public claims over Pogba's future.

Solskjaer is thought to not see Lukaku as part of his long-term plans at Old Trafford, with the Norwegian reportedly intent on replacing him with Sevilla's Wassim Ben Yedder.

At the end of that club statement, United declared: "We request that medical confidentiality is respected".

Behind the scenes, though, United chiefs have been angered by the actions of Pogba's representative.

It also stressed that external factors, such as global trade tensions and political uncertainty, affected European economy. The GDP forecast for Bulgaria is also unchanged - 3.3% in 2019. and 3.4% for 2020.

The England global has been one of the club's priorities for the summer transfer window but so far, they have failed with bids of £65m and £70m to secure his signature.

My reasoning is not simply that I think Pogba is not a good guy, but I have more faith in Real Madrid's current midfield situation.

United and kits sponsor adidas have now opted for an unprecedented amendment from their usual colours, with the club's new away strip being beige in colour, and described by adidas as "savannah" in appearance.

The £180m price-tag comes as United themselves were left gobsmacked by Newcastle's own valuation of their top midfielder.

It will be worn for the first time on Saturday, when they face Perth Glory in a pre-season friendly in Western Australia.
