Manchester United desperately need to strengthen their midfield department and they have been linked with Portuguese international, Matheus Nunes.
Last weekend, we covered a story via Correio da Manha stating that Sporting demand activation of the £50.6million clause and the 23-year-old has turned Wolves down to wait for a big club like the Red Devils.
However, more recently, the most circulated newspaper in Portugal (via Paisley Gates) have claimed that the player is learning English to join a Premier League side who will be playing in the UEFA Champions League this season.
CM Jornal reveal the Merseysiders meet his requirement are preparing to move in with a bid to secure the signing as they look to replace injured Spaniard, Thiago Alcantara.
So, after De Jong, Man Utd suffer another blow as even Nunes does not want to play for us because we will be playing in the Europa League this season.
Lack of CL football is proving to be a massive obstacle in attracting top quality players and the supporters should fear they may have to see McTominay and Fred, a partnership that has never flourished, in the center of the park for another season.
The summer transfer window will shut down in just three weeks and United have not managed to sufficiently strengthen their squad.
To make matters worse, unfortunately, even the new recruits (Martinez and Eriksen) failed to shine in the opening game of the season vs Brighton
With time running out, who should Man Utd sign to improve the squad before deadline?
