Manchester United locked in battle with Newcastle for Daryl Janmaat

Manchester United face stiff competition from Newcastle United as they look to secure the services of Dutch defender Daryl Janmaat, according to the Mail.

World Cup form

The right-back has impressed with his displays at the World Cup and could follow manager Louis Van Gaal to Old Trafford.

The Feyenoord man is also the subject of transfer interest from Newcastle, who are set to lose Matthieu Debuchy to Arsenal this summer.


United meanwhile are in desperate need of strengthening their defence, although they have already made inroads after the capture of left-back Luke Shaw from Southampton.

But the right-back berth remains a concern, with Rafael proving his inconsistencies too often last campaign and Chris Smalling also struggled there, particularly in the Champions League second round first leg defeat to Olympiakos.

Evra on his way out?

Despite signing a new one-year contract extension, Patrice Evra has attracted interest from Juventus, who are hoping former United midfielder and Juve star Paul Pogba can persuade the defender to move to Italy, according to Gazetto Dello Sport.

Manager Antonio Conte - himself a former Juve player - is looking to revamp his squad as they aim to achieve success at home and on the continent next year, and he sees Evra as an ideal player owing to his vast experience at all levels of the game.

The Serie 'A' club are reportedly looking to sign the 33-year old for as little as £1million.
