My family will always come first, says AWOL Anthony Martial

"I really believe Joel is a Manchester United goalkeeper, but he can not be two years without football - he has to play". From Chelsea's quest to keep Willian to Man United's need for a stronger backline, here is the latest gossip from around Europe.

The 22-year-old France winger has not trained for eight days and could face a fine of £180,000, the equivalent of two weeks' wages, if United decide that the unauthorised absence constitutes a breach of his contract.

Former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who is now without a job, is favourite to take over the reigns at Old Trafford at 4/1 with Betfair and Paddy Power, according to Oddschecker.

Competition would still be fierce, with Renato Sanches, Corentin Tolisso, a World Cup victor with France, Javi Martinez and Thomas Mueller also seeking midfield places.

A friend of Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has revealed that the midfielder used to be a Liverpool fan.

Manchester United have been told they can sign Bayern Munich star Jerome Boateng for £50m as the Red Devils step-up their search for a new centre-back, according to the Daily Mail.

The club have brought in some useful players in Fred, Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant, but those signings have failed to satisfy the appetite of many.


He might be just 19 years old with an exciting future ahead of him but Klopp is at a point in his tenure where he can no longer be thinking predominantly about the future but needs to make decisions that will yield immediate results.

Martial flew home for the birth of his second child, but did not return to the United States. If they buy another one without getting one out that's six.

"Darron is a talented footballer who has played at the highest level and is a good addition to our squad", said Cook.

First up is the Daily Mirror saying that striker Robert Lewandowski is "wanted by United as part of [a] swap deal to take Anthony Martial to Bayern Munich".

I think the top Premier League goal scorer will be Harry Kane.

We have less than a week left until the summer transfer window closes, so Manchester United are running out of time to add another player.
