Manchester United Transfer News: Ronaldo, Luke Shaw, Maroune Fellaini, Leighton Baines All Linked With United Moves

In what may well be a repeat of the last minute signing of Dimitar Berbatov, Manchester United are lining up moves for Cristiano Ronaldo, Luke Shaw, Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines, before the transfer window shuts on 2nd September.

The sale of Ronaldo is the only way that Real Madrid can finance the deal for Gareth Bale and Manchester United are one of the few clubs who have the cash to finance a deal for Ronaldo. There will not be any installments in the Ronaldo deal, however, his sponsors Nike, who are also Manchester United sponsors, have stated that they would help to pay the players massive wage bill.

The bid for Luke Shaw may well take place instead of a further bid for Everton left back, Leighton Baines, who it seems Everton are determined to keep. The young Southampton left back is already pencilled in for a future with the full England squad even though he is still only 18, that is the esteem in which he is held by both club and international team officials. United have already had two bids rejected for Baines, but it might be a different story in the case of Marouane Fellaini.

Fellaini has already made known that he would like to move to a club which is in the Champions League and United fit the bill in that respect, but it also helps that he gets on really well with David Moyes, who is now the new Manchester United manager. Manchester United would need to improve on their initial bid for the player, which was part of a joint bid for him and Leighton Baines of £28m, an offer which was instantly rejected by an angry Everton. If United go back in with a bid just for Fellaini of around £20m, it is likely that there will be talks.
