Reports going around that Alonso been playing with an injury since the start of his season.
Ake has been playing as a centre back for Bournemouth and I could see Conte using him on the left of a back three. I do not think Ake is dynamic enough to be a good option at wingback
Schneiderlin gets Hibbo's #2 shirt, big shoes to fill!
Tom Cleverley from Everton to Watford on loan.
Luciano Narsingh from PSV to Swansea for £4m.
United have recalled Bortwick-Jackson from Wolves.
The lad did a fantastic job under LvG, didn't really understand why he was loaned out by mourinho.
He also did a good job for wolves under zenga (according to wolves fans I know) but after zenga was sacked lambert never gave him a chance and mourinho wants him back because of that.
I wonder if he is supposed to fight for a LB spot against shaw etc.
Payet has apparently told Bilic he wants to leave, and go to Marseille apparently.
If you've not seen Bilic' press conference from yesterday, it's worth watching, alongside all the meme's going around.
Payet's a shit house.
He should have kept his head down and grafted rather than throw his toys out the pram. He also shouldn't have signed a new long term deal last year.
Bilic has done the right thing with him - out of the team, and not involved until he fixes his head. Not surprised WHU are happy to not sell him, as I suspect his wages are also on hold to some degree.
All this for Marseille?! I read bids were rejected from Real and PSG last summer? Marseille is surely just a pawn in this Payet news.
Oumar Niasse from Everton to Hull on loan.
Danilo Cataldi from Lazio to Genoa on loan.
Jeffrey Schlupp to Crystal Palace for 7.5 million pounds.
I think Palace had a rejected bid around that mark, but he's gone now for £12m.
You're right, it's 12 million now. For a utility man from reserves. And people are saying Liverpool are wrong to demand 20 millions for Sakho!
Looks like Diego Costa want a move to China.
Alexander Isak will sign for Real Madrid next week according to Marca.
Just seen that Niklas Sule has gone to Bayern from Hoffenheim, £17.5m.
A bit disappointing as he's a player to be regularly linked with us. I guess that leaves Tah in terms of young talented German CBs we're keeping tabs on.
Simone Zaza from Juventus to Valencia on loan (£1.7m fee) similar at West Ham with obligatory buy if he plays a certain number of games.
Sidney Sam from Schalke to Darmstadt on loan.
Evandro from Porto to Hull for £2.1m.
Ola John from Benfica to Deportivo on loan.
Pierluigi Gollini from Villa to Atalanta on loan.
Bayern have also signed Sebastian Rudy on a free (will join next summer) from Hoffenheim together with Sule.
That Bayern move was written on the wall for some time. Good riddance to him, he talked about loving ManU on German TV, after that he was basically dead to me (Though unfortunately he's a really, really good CB imo)
Tah - still not that crazy about him tbh, but others seem to see more in him, so..
Bayern is renown for weakening their league opposition, they only venture outside when necessary but most of the time they would recruit within the league and especially German players.
Yes, and when the German players start playing for the German national team, they absolutely HAVE to get them (like Süle). Basically every German international not playing for Bayern is seen as a disgrace and a massive blow to their egos.
So they are like Man United of old then?
No they are trying to be like the ManU of old which makes it far worse!
You're right they still boo him now every time he plays against them after 13 years they don't seem to bear much of a grudge not
Gael Kakuta from China to Deportivo on loan.
Luiz Adriano from Milan to Spartak Moscow on a permanent deal.
Kyriakos Papadopoulos from Leverkusen to Hamburg on loan.
Bayern also picked up Rudy from Hoffenheim, their captain. They are both staying with them and moving in the summer.
Aly Cissokho from Villa to Olympiakos on loan.
Martin Olsson from Norwich to Swansea for £5m.
Bamford has gone to Boro, hopefully he can pick his career back up, always liked the kid.
How good is this Gabriel Jesus that City have signed? Should we be worried?
Extremely talented with the ball, a proper Brazilian winger/forward. He's coming with great reputation, not quite Neymar-like but I'd say he's the most hyped up Brazilian to move to Europe since Neymar, for what it's worth.
Hopefully more of a Robinho than a Neymar!
Hopefully more of a Bellamy/Kolo Toure/Milner than a Neymar!
Tom Carroll from Spurs to Swansea for £4.4m.
Morgan Sanson from Montpellier to Marseille for £7.6m.
Aleksandr Samedov from Lokomotiv to Spartak for £3m.
Allan McGregor from Hull to Cardiff on loan.
Emilio Nsue from Boro to Birmingham for £1m.
Andreas Weimann from Derby to Wolves on loan.
Also sees like Lyon have agreed a fee with United for Depay, £16m + more in bonuses (could end up a little more than £20m). Buy back clause included.
Surprised to see Livermore heading to WBA from Hull, Hull don't seem to be giving up on survival just yet, but their transfer activity is largely outward.
