Sunderland have agreed a fee that could rise to £8m for Manchester United duo Paddy McNair and Donald Love, according to Sky Sports.
The report suggests Sunderland have agreed a £5m fee that could rise to £7m with United for McNair, whereas Donald Love will cost the Black Cats just under £1m.
McNair is believed to have agreed to sign a 4-year contract with Sunderland, with Sky Sports reporting the Northern Irish international and his United teammate, Donald Love, will undergo their medicals today.
McNair, who made 9 appearances for United last season, wasn’t included in the squad for the Community Shield game against Leicester City last weekend, which only fueled the speculation about his future.
He’s been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer and it seems like he’s set to move to Wearside.
It seems like he’ll be joined by one of the other fringe players in Mourinho’s team – Donald Love.
Van Gaal was forced to give Love his debut for United’s first team in February due to the severe injury crisis at the time.
Sunderland would be a great destination for both of them. They’d have more opportunities to play under Moyes and would stay in the Premier League, which is always a positive.
They aren’t good enough for this United team, so the potential transfer to Sunderland would be best for all parties involved.
