Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is set to receive a £1m payout from the club should he leave permanently.
That’s according to the Daily Star, who claim that Manchester United are also considering the possibility of sending him out on loan despite interest in a permanent deal to avoid the clause.
La Liga and Premier League interest
Aston Villa are thought to be the frontrunners to sign the 25-year-old Old Trafford midfielder, who has become a focal point of fans’ criticism since his form nose-dived under David Moyes.
But the £7m-rated England international is also attracting interest from Valencia and Everton, which means Manchester United have no shortage of suitors should they seek to move him on.
Which according to several reports is actually what they’re trying to do. Louis van Gaal has deemed a number of his fringe squad members surplus to requirements.
As a result, it looks set to be a crazy couple of days at Old Trafford as the transfer deadline looms tomorrow night.
Man United transfer business
There’s bound to be comings and goings, with Ajax’s versatile international Daley Blind closing in on a move to United after he was spotted undergoing a medical in the Manchester area last night. Nigel De Jong could also join him at the club.
As for goings, the likes of Javier Hernandez and Shinji Kagawa have been informed that they can leave, with the Japanese international linked with a return to former club Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
