"Moving to Manchester United has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember", he told ManUtd.com.

His current side Stoke City were relegated from the Premier League last season and, as such, he will be available on the cheap for a reported £12 million, a price which for the pedigree Shaqiri possesses is a steal.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen on making the 35-year old as the third-choice keeper at the Old Trafford, as back up for David De Gea and Sergio Romero.

The investigation involves three agencies including the Securities and Exchange Commission , the Washington Post report said. It says it asked the company, Kogan, and others to delete the data.


Manchester United are reportedly close to announcing their third signing of the summer transfer window.

The 35-year-old, who previously had two spells with Derby County and has also kept goal for Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley, has impressed in the Premier League over the past two years with Stoke.

And Eric Bailly wants talks with Jose Mourinho to sort his long-term United future before the start of the season, reports the Sun.

Both they and other Reddit users who reported the same problem found no record of the messages having been sent, either. T-Mobile tells CNET "It's not a T-Mobile issue", adding "You'll want to check in with Samsung on this one".


It is no secret that Mourinho is interested in signing Willian from his former club Chelsea but United are notably absent from the bidding war that has seen Barcelona offer £50m (an offer which was rejected).

Argentina worldwide Sergio Romero is De Gea's understudy, while Joel Perreira is now third-choice under the Portuguese head coach. He will be joining the club on a two-year deal.

However, the big story involving United on Thursday morning is that they are ready to make a move for a different kind of playmaker.

McConnell sets the agenda and hopes to have the new justice in place by October, which is when the Supreme Court term begins. On Monday, Trump interviewed federal appeals judges Raymond Kethledge, Amul Thapar, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.


Grant will merely play an emergency back-up role at United, unlikely to play in the Premier League.
