For the second weekend running the Sunday Star are going it alone reporting that Manchester United are signing AC Milan’s Nigel de Jong.

According to the red-top:

On the way in are Dutch pair Nigel de Jong and Daley Blind.

United are waiting for AC Milan to give midfielder De Jong the green light to fly to Manchester today (Sunday) to complete a £10 million deal. 

Alongside the reports of signings, the Star also peddle the belief that Man United are trying to get rid of nine players before the window slams shut.

The information of the players on the chopping block is withheld on the back page splash, but one can assume that the usual names of Tom Cleverley, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez, Anderson and Danny Welbeck are all in the mix.
