javier-hernandez2The Manchester United striker Javier Hernández has suffered a broken collarbone while on international duty with Mexico.

The 27-year-old collided with Honduras’s Brayan Beckeles shortly before half-time in Mexico’s warm-up friendly before the Gold Cup and the team doctor confirmed the extent of the injury after the game.

“The fracture of the right collarbone has been confirmed clinically,” Gerardo Aguilar said.

“He’s being re-evaluated in hospital to confirm what we observed in a radiological study.

[He’ll be out] for three to four weeks minimum.”

The El Tri coach Miguel Herrera said:

Man United v San Jose Earthquakes Location Moved

icc2015With only three weeks notice, organizers of the Manchester United v San Jose Earthquakes have moved their July 21 meeting from the 62,000-capacity Kabam Field at the University of California in Berkeley to the Earthquakes’ 18,000-capacity Avaya Stadium.

The move was made at the request of Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal as he was concerned with the travel time to Berkeley.

A statement issued by the organizers said,

“Our campus representatives were informed by our promotional partner, Relevent Sports, that the Manchester United vs. San Jose Earthquakes match scheduled for July 21 at California Memorial Stadium, has been relocated to Avaya Stadium in San Jose.

Victor-Valdes-BarcelonaThe David de Gea transfer saga continues to drag on, and as it has, Manchester United have been linked with a host of goalkeepers this summer to replace him like Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris, Jasper Cillesen of Ajax and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak.

The one name that everyone overlooks is Victor Valdes and former striker Dwight Yorke believes that the former Barcelona goalkeeper is more than capable over taking over from de Gea.

“Victor Valdes probably thinks he would have a good opportunity.

“He’s got a wealth of experience and has won everything in the game. He will probably be a suitable candidate and fill that gap.”

Bastian Schweinsteiger vs Morgan Schneiderlin

For some Manchester United fans, the last few weeks have been spent dusting down the welcome home banners meant for Bastian Schweinsteiger. The banners that have been ready for what seems like an eternity, for a player that has become a big deal in parts of Old Trafford, despite only ever being an opponent. Why the hysteria this time around? Because Louis van Gaal had been hoping to reunite with the German this summer. However, in keeping with emerging reports, those banners can reluctantly be put back into storage, as United change course and join the race to sign Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

United Preparing £15m Bid For Coleman

colemanvclynevalvesManchester United are reportedly preparing a big for Everton fullback Seamus Coleman as Louis van Gaal tries to fill the void at right-back.

United have been trying all summer to sign a right-back. First there was Dani Alves, but be signed a new Barcelona contract and then Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne is Liverpool bound.

Coleman fits the profile as he could play as an orthodox right-back and would be equally comfortable as a wing-back given van Gaal’s penchant for three at the back.

ramos2Sergio Ramos is for sale. Real Madrid have put him there, pricing him at €90 million. That is the starting price Florentino Pérez has given Manchester United after the English club, as reported by AS yesterday, made an opening bid of €50 million.

For now, that will not be enough but negotiations are already underway. The meeting at Valdebebas between Ramos and José Ángel Sánchez (which Florentino did not attend) on Wednesday were far from served to discuss a renewal, as the Madrid fans expected. Instead, it was the starting point for his departure. “Listen to offers for me”, said the defender.

ramos2Manchester United have returned with a second offer of €60 million after their initial offer of €50 million for Sergio Ramos was rejected by Real Madrid.

This summer, United have a budget of over €250 million to spend on new players (after taking fourth place in the Premier League). The brand value is €1,070 million. And the price of Ramos does not seem to be a problem. According to The Times, United are hoping Ramos signals publicly his desire to leave so they can complete a deal.

United Close In On Morgan Schneiderlin Deal

Morgan-SchneiderlinManchester United are closing in on the £24 million capture of Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.

Schneiderlin said on Wednesday he hoped his future would be resolved by next week, when Saints return for pre-season training, and senior United sources are confident a deal can be struck by then.

Van Gaal gave executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward the go-ahead to bid for France World Cup midfielder Schneiderlin, who now looks set to move to Manchester’s Reds on a four-year deal.

Schneiderlin had wanted to go to Arsenal last summer and went on strike in an effort to force a move, but Southampton stood firm.

Sergio Ramos Asks Real Madrid To Listen To Offers

ramos2The Sergio Ramos story took another twist on Wednesday as the Real Madrid defender and his agent René Ramos met with Real general director José Ángel Sánchez and told him that he wants to leave the Spanish giants this summer.

It has been reported that Manchester United have lodged an opening bid of £35 million for the center half and that the Real Madrid defender has asked his club to consider it.

The opening bid is understood to be independent of David de Gea’s move in the opposite direction but it is clear United will now use their interest in Ramos to come to an agreement over the sale of their goalkeeper.

Two former Manchester United legends, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville, have voiced their opinions on the Sergio Ramos to Old Trafford rumors on the social networks.

Both expressed the utmost respect for the World Cup-winning Real Madrid defender but also their skepticism over the transfer and the benefits it would have on the Red Devils.

Ferdinand wrote:

“If the stories are correct and Manchester United sign Ramos and Schweinsteiger they would be good signings, but are they using United to get better offers from their current clubs?”

Neville, as is his style, did not mince his words:
