Manchester United Preparing Bid for Valencia star Carlos Soler

He has a £75million release clause but United are confident of landing him for around £30m

At the age of 20, Soler has now made 35 appearances for Valencia's first team.

According to the Daily Mail, Soler attracted United interest in the second half of the last season. His only goal came in Valencia's 2-2 draw against Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu. The omission of Pogba has hurt United's push for title success - and Mourinho will be looking to improve his midfield as soon as possible.

After a series of disappointing transfer windows following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, United believe their ability to complete the signings of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic in July has helped their impressive start to the current season and they are keen to do their business early again. Marouane Fellaini is injured as well and Michael Carrick will likely retire at the end of the season, so Mourinho wants to add depth for both the present and the future.

Gujarat cadre IPS officer Rakesh Asthana appointed CBI Special Director
Government sources, however, denied the CVC's Selection Comittee had rejected the proposal to promote Asthana to special director. Asthana, a 1984-batch IPS officer, had been serving in the Central Bureau of Investigation as additional director.

The signing of Soler from Valencia would maintain a positive recent history of transfer window activity for United, who are now relishing the recent summer arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic who have already hit the ground running at Old Trafford.

The transfer would take place next summer, meaning Soler would make its debut for United in the 2018/19 season.

United were linked with a move for Soler earlier in the summer. "When I go out on the pitch to play, I'm not thinking: "wow, I've got a really high buyout clause and I've got a lot of responsibility on my shoulders", Soler told Sky Sports.
