Manchester United are happy to keep David De Gea for a further year if his move to Real Madrid does not go through and believe he could effect a return to form and favour in the way Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney have done after transfer sagas in the past, sources have told ESPN FC.
United captain Rooney approached his French teammate after the defeat to Swansea, when reports were first emerging that manager Louis van Gaal was trying to buy Monaco forward Martial, in a bid to discover about the 19-year-old.
Schneiderlin, who is in the France squad with Martial, replied that the teenager has similarities with Thierry Henry.
Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign highly rated Newport County defender Regan Poole, sources have told ESPN FC.
Poole, 17, is regarded as one of the best young defenders in England's lower leagues and has had trials at United and Liverpool in the past.
The defender, who became Newport's youngest ever player when he started against Shrewsbury in September 2014 at the age of 16 years and 94 days, has also attracted interest from Fulham and Hull City among others.
