New, comments

Angel Di Maria has had his PSG medical, while Pedro will shortly arrive to replace him. Adnan Januzaj, in turn, will have a year's experience on loan at Sunderland.

According to the Sunderland Echo, Adnan Januzaj could soon join Sunderland on loan from Manchester United. Dick Advocaat and Louis van Gaal are mates, and Sunderland have a history of taking United players on loan, so it all makes sense. Januzaj does need a year of football somewhere, and it doesn't look like it will be at United now they have Memphis Depay and, probably, Pedro. You can have a look at the article here.

In the Mirror, the story is that Pedro has been told he will be part of an attacking three with Wayne Rooney in the middle, and Memphis Depay on the left. So with Juan Mata replaced, that is now just one limiting factor in the front three. Mata's an excellent player, clearly, but there's no clear place for him in a 4-3-3. You can read that here.

In the Manchester Evening news, there's confirmation that Angel Di Maria has had his medical ahead of his move to Manchester United. Bye.
