Man Utd in talks to sign Joao Moutinho from Monaco
Manchester United are in talks to sign Joao Moutinho after the Monaco midfielder’s agent Jorge Mendes raised the possibility of a move, according to reports.
United are already in talks with Monaco over the £13m transfer of Radamel Falcao on-loan for the season and look set to use those negotiations to pave the way for Moutinho to join up too.
The Portugal star wants to leave the French side and with United keen on boosting their quality in midfield see the player as the perfect option, according to the Express.
Louis van Gaal is set to lose Tom Cleverley and Anderson today – players he has told do not have a future at the club – and does not want to be left short in midfield.
Tottenham nearly signed the player two years ago under Andre Villas-Boas, who has made no secret of his interest in playing in the Premier League.
Moutinho could cost as much as £15m with the deal set to go through later today.
