Manchester United transfer news: Martial clears the air, update on Fabinho's move and more - 11th October 2017
Martial happy at Manchester United
Anthony Martial has brushed off the rumours of his Manchester United exit and is focused on playing regular football for Jose Mourinho this season.
According to The Mirror, Arsenal and Barcelona are tracking Martial's lack of playing time this season and could make a January move for the French international star.
However, Martial is once again enjoying his time at Old Trafford and is keen to prove his £50million price tag following his move to AS Monaco.
The Frenchman has already been involved in 6 Premier League goals (3 goals and 3 assists) this season and has been a key player for Mourinho from the bench.
AS Monaco to sell Fabinho in January
Manchester United have received a fresh boost in their attempts to sign AS Monaco's midfield star Fabinho according to Le 10 Sports who claim that Ligue 1 side are now willing to sell the 23-year-old star.
United were heavily linked with Fabinho earlier in the summer but Monaco refused the sale given the exits of Tiemoue Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva, Benjamin Mendy, and Kylian Mbappe.
However, Fabinho has been adamant on leaving the club with Manchester United keen to sign the Brazilian following the injuries to Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.
According to reports, Monaco will accept any bid in the region of £53million with United being the only club aiming to complete the signing of the combative midfielder who can also play at the right-back position.
Danny Rose back on United's radar
Manchester United are convinced that they can sign Tottenham left-back Danny Rose in January after the defender has decided to snub Chelsea and join the Old Trafford outfit.
The Mirror claims Mourinho has had enough of Luke Shaw's lack of fitness and form and will make a defensive signing in January.
Rose has fallen out with Mauricio Pochettino and with the emergence of Ben Davies, Rose is more likely to be sold than any other Tottenham player in the winter transfer window.
Mourinho scouting Frankfurt's Gacinovic
Jose Mourinho's appearance at the World Cup qualification match between Austria and Serbia has now been revealed as a scouting mission for Frankfurt's star Mijat Gacinovic.
Man United manager is not convinced by the quality of his team going forward and is apparently not happy with Henrikh Mkhitaryan's recent form.
Mourinho wants to bring another playmaker in January and has been impressed with Gacinovic's performances this season.
Gacinovic made his international debut for Serbia in March and according to reports, he shares a close relationship with Nemanja Matic which could help United in completing the transfer.
