Manchester United transfer news: Di Maria transfer request, bookies suspend markets

Old Trafford Olympics

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Manchester United.

Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria is reported to have handed in a transfer request.

The Argentine looks set for a move to Old Trafford after turning down a new contract at the La Liga club.

Chelsea are also thought to be interested but the bookies make United favourites to land the 26-year-old.

The bookies are actually so confident that Di Maria will become a United player, they’ve stopped taking bets on it as a possibility.

Odds for Di Maria to move to Old Trafford shortened with the Express reporting that some bookies have now suspended markets on the possible transfer.

United also continue to be linked with a move for his Real Madrid teammate Sami Khedira.

The German was strongly linked with a mover to Arsenal earlier in the summer transfer window.

However, a deal never materialised and United stand a good chance of signing him if they make an offer.
