Manchester United on the verge of signing Brazilian defender Miranda

Brazilian defender Miranda, who plays for Spanish champions Atletico Madrid, is on the ‘verge’ of completing his move to Manchester United, claims Spanish newspaper, AS.

Miranda isn’t featuring in the FIFA World Cup for Brazil so that’s not stalling the deal and the Spanish media have reporting this deal to be ‘nearly there’ for weeks now. It’s hard to suspect the integrity of the report, with this particular story being reporting across a number of outlets for several weeks now.

AS is covering Atletico Madrid increasing the wages of star players Koke, Godin and Juanfran, all of whom are key assets to Los Colchoneros.

Koke has been linked with a move to Barcelona, and Old Trafford so far this summer. However, these rumours have no real intensity about them, with the Spanish press focusing on the future of striker Diego Costa who is set for a move to the Premier League to join up with Chelsea.

The Spanish newspaper, AS, are certain that these broadcasts have come from the Champions League finalists, Atleti, or sources nearby Miranda. Additionally, there have been stories about the defender looking for schools in Manchester, stating that both Manchester United and Manchester City are battling it out to sign to Brazilian.

Atletico Madrid are allegedly demanding the defender’s buyout clause, which stands at £24million. No comment has been made from Manchester United regarding any transfer movements so far this summer, with the club likely to wait until the World Cup is over and Louis van Gaal is back in Manchester before the business can really start.

Sources close to the club still think that Manchester United are still confident of securing the £27million signing of Luke Shaw once England return from their awful showing in the World Cup.

  1. Buying Miranda woyukd be a good idea but why waste money on shaw. Shaw isnt even that good and certainly not got what is needed go be at ManUtd. United need to get rid off fellaini, young, zaha, anderson as soon as possible whiles the likes of welbeck, Jones, smalling, Powell, lindegaard should all consider looking for new clubs as they are average players that LVG will likely remove from the club. Utd must put Lawrence, mkeane, lingard, Wilson and Pereira into the first team this season as they are all good enough and are massive players for the future of this club. Januzaj needs to be given the #7 shirt to back the unbelievable talent he haves, certainly the next c.Ronaldo.

  2. After watching few matches in the on going world cup from here in Nairobi – and being a fan of MAN UTD . I think manchester united should go for services of the following players.
    1. Alex Song of Cameroon, though he is high tempered he can do the job in defensive midfield, and since he played with Van Passie… he can fit well.
    2. James Rodiguez — of Colombia, he can dribble, score and create.— What a talent.
    3. Blind of Netherlands — he can play as back left and defensive midfield and very strong.
    4. Arturo Vidal — Creative midfielder. He can marshall the midfield very well and he more creative like Mata.
    5. Vargas of Chile.: Outstanding, he can dribble, score and create.
    6. Ezequel Mangala – The Porto defender and danger man. He is young, compact, not blown to injuries and and ever accurate if not then Exequel Garay of Argentina who posses the same qualities as Mangala

    With the five players manchester united will be outstanding.

  3. We need someone but was hoping for mangala or hummels for the central defence. I worry when scolari over looks a supposedly top defender and still picks luiz. Shaw deal needs to get sorted he is going to be the best he has absolutely everything. Big names are needed in midfield there is no one better available than Vidal we need to make this happen. Schweinstiger or kroos also needed.

    • No shaw is not going to be the best, what a stupid opinion that is. Januzaj is going to be the best and a ManUtd legend.

      But hey everyone haves their own opinion.

  4. Parks if that was supposed to be for me januzia and Shaw play two totally different positions. And my point on Shaw was the best LB sorry for not spelling it out for you.

    • I know januzaj and Shaw plays totally different positions, just saying it is stupid to say Shaw will be the best,to be fair you might be talking up leftback.

    • But talking up left back is really no big deal as we can have a poor left back and still win matches, I doubt Shaw will be anything special in the future and not that great a fullback anyway. My point still stands that Januzaj will be the best. We can all make comments that make little sense just like we can say things without thinking first.

  5. People keep going on about wanting to sign players which makes sense but some need to stop picking up papers and stories, its not true, just wait and see what the club does because we will get it right.

    DeGea, Evans, Evra, Rafael, MKeane, Januzaj, Lingard, Lawrence, Mata, Fletcher, Carrick, Kagawa, Valencia, VanPersie, Rooney, Wilson will most likely be in the team next season whiles Amos, Johnstone, Vermijl, Pereira, Pearson all deserves a chance for some game time and we should keep hold of Nani & Chicharito………..lindegaard, Jones, smalling, young, zaha, welbeck, fellaini,Anderson, Powell are players we should remove from the club……..now no one knows who and how many guys we will sign and some puts too much into newspaper claims but I think it is fair to say we can do with a left back, 2 centre backs, 2 midfielders, maybe a winger and another forward.

  6. Parks, please tell me how many times you’ve seen the likes of M Keane, Wilson etc play? My guess is not many. I’ve been to a lot of reserve games and I can tell you first hand that while there are some good talents in the team, mainly Pereira and Wilson, none are anywhere near the level MUFC need RIGHT NOW.
    The fact you write off shaw shows me you are very ignorant when it comes to recognising genuine talent.
