Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Matteo Darmian from Torino. A low opening offer was made last week, but negotiations are continuing as Torino hold out for a price closer to 20 million euros. A compromise is expected to be reached, and Darmian will triple his salary at Old Trafford. That's according to this tweet, anyway:

In addition to that, the Morgan Schneiderlin transfer rumbles on, with Ronald Koeman making it clear he'd like United to simply up their bid and hurry up - the worry is United will lose out on this player as they wait for Bastian Schweinsteiger to make his mind up. The even bigger worry is that United don't realise they need at least two midfielders, not just one.

And lastly, United are refusing to countenance letting David de Gea go to Real Madrid unless they get access to Sergio Ramos for a fair price. That's in the Manchester Evening News, and you can read it here.
