Check out all the latest Manchester United news and transfer gossip from today.

The Inter Milan midfielder has been linked with a possible switch to Old Trafford as Louis van Gaal grows increasingly frustrated at the Red Devils failure to close a deal for Arturo Vidal.
The Juventus playmaker was previously billed as Manchester United's number one transfer target this summer, but they are now weighing up a cut-price move for the Colombia international instead.
Guarin is reportedly available for as little as £10 million - which is significantly less than the £45 million quoted for Vidal this summer.
The former Porto man has been offered big money to join the rich Russian club, but would prefer a lower salary and the chance to test himself in the Premier League with Manchester United.
