Manchester United are keen to ensure Benfica starlet Renato Sanches joins them by the end of the day and have lodged a bid worth £31 million. That’s the latest from Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, who say that negotiations are ongoing as the Red Devils attempt to strike a deal. Sanches has been monitored by United for most of this month if you believe reports, but some sources infer that he wants to continue his development in Portugal for now. For what it’s worth, we’re sceptical of any deal happening simply down to the magnitude of the proposed transfer and the time left to finalise things - also £31m is obviously a lot to pay for an 18-year-old. Don’t hesitate to let us know what you think. Moving on, Ahmed Musa is another supposed target of Louis van Gaal’s. This comes from the Mirror, and there really isn’t anything concrete in the speculation, but the CSKA star is said to be wanted by both United and Leicester. He has a buyout clause, but his club don’t want to sell.
