Zidane ‘learns English’ amid United interest, Kounde drops clue, Dani Olmo watched




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 winning team.

Bild claims Muller snubbed a salary of almost £ 17million a year after speaking to his wife.

And Bayern Munich were also not keen on doing business, refusing a transfer fee of £ 84million.

Meanwhile, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers called speculation linking him to Manchester United “really disrespectful”.

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

“Second, I can’t really comment on it because it’s not something real.

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

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

Finally, Man Utd are keeping an eye on RB Leipzig star Dani Olmo ahead of a potential transfer, according to reports.

United love the Spaniard, but Barcelona’s interest in 23-year-old Olmo has complicated matters.

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