Manchester United CEO Ed Woodward silenced all who believed the impossible was no more possible at Old Trafford.

Angel Di Maria came. And then Falcao. All in what seemed to be 24 hours of a crazy last day summer transfer window.

Now, the rumblings have begun again.

Gareth Bale is growing louder every day, even if the Stretford End are loathe to see David De Gea part of the deal with Real Madrid.

This morning, Lionel Messi has been thrown into the mix.

The Telegraph writes that United’s new sponsors Adidas are working to bring Messi to Manchester in a £200 million deal.

Louis Van Gaal seems primed to continue his clean out of what he believes are players who will not make it in a future United squad.

Messi coming in, or Gareth Bale will only augment the clear-out.

Nathaniel Clyne is one of the wing backs being looked at but, according to The Metro Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is very much also on the radar to steel up the Red Devil defence.
