Zlatan Ibrahimovic set for a surprise move

Kasper Schmeichel, 30, has seen his hopes of joining Manchester United grow amid the possibility of a fresh bid from Real Madrid for fellow goalkeeper David de Gea, 26.

Lukaku, who scored 53 Premier League goals in 110 appearances for the club since his permanent move, declined the most lucrative contract offer in Everton's history at the end of last season, declaring he wished to play at a higher level. There was not a new contract [to allow] time for everybody to think, feel and decide. But he made the challenge for him to continue at the highest level.

"So we're speaking, we are changing ideas and again it's in the hands of (executive vice-chairman Ed) Woodward and Zlatan's agent, but the important thing is that the final decision is the best for the player".

Because, Lacazette is not physically right for the Premier League and is not a big-game player. "I played with him since the age of eight so it is very sad, and this a very hard time for me", he said.

Jose Mourinho guided United to three trophies last term but still finished a disappointing 6th in the league as the club struggled in matches against the smaller teams.

The Portuguese tactician will be able to keep a close eye on Ibrahimovic's progress as the forward, who was United top scorer last season with 28 goals across all competitions, is now recovering from knee surgery at the club's training ground in Carrington.

Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku have been added to the United squad ahead of the new campaign, with The Sun noting that it's set the Red Devils back £110m for the pair.

At this moment in time, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not registered to a club. However the Portuguese manager is not happy with the clubs overall business. "We are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof, we need more".

"We had so many opponents last season that decided clearly to defend, closing spaces, playing with lots of defenders and defensive midfield players". "I am going to play with two different teams tomorrow, 45 minutes for each player", he said. We want four so it's 50 per cent of the job done.

Ragarding what Lukaku can bring, Mourinho said: "Hopefully goals".

"Romelu has settled in well, we know what he do with the goals he scores".

The Italian, who won the league in his first year of English football, had identified the powerful striker as his number 1 priority signing as he had made a decision to dispense with Diego Costa. Our relationship was always very close despite it not working well for us together.
