Manchester United fans hoping to see Louis van Gaal clinch the signing of Paris Saint-Germain star Marquinhos are sure to be happy today, as his agent has confirmed interest from Old Trafford. Speaking to a French radio station the Brazilian star’s chief representative claimed that United were hot on his heels, and went on to discuss the topic of his lack of game-time. The two factors combined could be enough to see him make a Premier League switch in the summer, though a mooted price-tag of £30 million means he won’t come cheap. Meanwhile incredible reports from Spain say Angel Di Maria could be flogged by Van Gaal to generate funds to the tune of £60 million for the capture of Mats Hummels and Diego Godin. Strange to say the least, and we’re not sure we buy that one. Lastly Paul Scholes has branded Van Gaal bizarre for using a dossier of evidence to dispel the claim his side played long-ball tactics against West Ham. You just can’t keep him down these days.
