Jose Mourinho has given green light to trigger four one-year contract extensions at Manchester United. The players rewarded will be Juan Mata, Daley Blind, Ashley Young and Ander Herrera.

One player that won’t see his option exercised, however, is Luke Shaw. The left-back is quite likely to leave the club during the January transfer window, and both Chelsea and Arsenal have emerged as alternatives for the former Southampton star.

AC Milan‘s proyect might not have started as expected, but there are looking at the transfer market once again. Their latest target comes from Germany, as the Serie A giants are keen to make a run at Schalke 04 star Leon Goretzka.

Milan will have stiff competition to acquire the talented playmaker, however. Arsenal, Tottenham, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are all interested in making a move for the German midfielder.

Speaking of the Spurs, they are keen to make a run at West Ham United’s star playmaker Manuel Lanzini, as Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he is a big fan of the former River Plate star.
