Manchester United linked with John Stones and Thomas Muller as Pedro deal drags

Manchester United have been linked with Everton defender John Stones, Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller, and Barcelona's Pedro - though that deal is increasingly in doubt.

Manchester Unitedaccording to the Mail, are lurking for Everton defender John Stones. Chelsea have been open in their interest this summer, much to Everton's annoyance, but there is increasingly a sense that should Chelsea have a bid accepted by Chelsea, then United will be willing to match the bid and try to persuade Stones - who is rumoured to be a United fan - to remain in the north. Manchester City are also said to hold an interest in the player.

United have again been linked with a move for Lucas Biglia, according to the only-rarely correct Tancredi Palmeri, who claims that the side have bid £22ish million (or 30 million euros) to Lazio for the player. This doesn't make any sense at all, unless they're preparing to sell Michael Carrick or Marouane Fellaini - we can but hope.

As mentioned in a longer story on the Busby Babe, Manchester United have made a second bid for Thomas Muller of Bayern Munich, and the German wants to join. That's according to the Express.

Right, that's your lot.
