Zidane ‘learning English’ amid United interest, Kounde drops hint, Dani Olmo monitored


Thomas Muller’s wife blocked a secret transfer to Manchester United during Louis van Gaal’s reign as manager.

The German was a key target for Van Gaal, who was looking to build a title-winning team.

Bild claims Muller snubbed a salary worth nearly £17million a year after talking to his wife.

And Bayern Munich were also not keen on doing business, turning down an £84m transfer fee.

Meanwhile, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has slammed speculation linking him to Manchester United as ‘really disrespectful’.

Responding to a reporter’s question, he said: “There’s two things. Firstly it is really disrespectful to ask the question when you have a manager in place, a good manager and a good man, who is working hard at the club.

“Secondly I can’t really comment on it, because it is not something that is real.

“I am here as the Leicester City manager, proud to be here, privileged to be here and fully committed to the players, the club, the ownership.

“That’s about it, all the other noise around that is something we can’t control.”

Finally, Man Utd are monitoring RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo ahead of a potential transfer, according to reports.

United are keen on the Spaniard but Barcelona’s interest in Olmo, 23, has complicated matters.

But with Barcelona struggling financially and also chasing Raheem Sterling there is a chance United could swoop in to sign Olmo, according to Spanish outlet El Nacional.
