Manchester United will sign a new number nine before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.

This is according to talkSPORT presenter Andy Goldstein, who informed his 97,000 Twitter followers earlier today that United will sign a new striker, based on what he has been told.

Interestingly, Goldstein has also been informed there is a shock exit on the cards, leading fans to speculate what might happen over the next few days.

Potential new No. 9

So, who might Goldstein’s source be referring to?

United have been linked with countless strikers over recent months, most notably Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller. However, neither of those two stars are likely to end up at Old Trafford next week.

One name who popped up in Goldstein’s replies more than most was Queens Park Rangers’ Charlie Austin, the 26-year-old who scored 18 Premier League goals last season.

But would he be good enough for the Red Devils?

Player set to leave?

As for the potential departure, guesses ranged from Juan Mata to Michael Carrick.

Jonny Evans and Victor Valdes are both likely to leave Manchester United, while David de Gea could still secure a move to Real Madrid before the end of the window.

But none of those possible deals could be classed as a surprise.

Phil Jones, though, would be a shock. Reports this week suggest the England international could be used as bait to sign Everton’s unsettled centre-back John Stones.
