HARGREAVES EXCITED UNITED TRIO HAVE RESUMED FIRST-TEAM TRAINING

Manchester United have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of their Europa League match with Sheriff Tiraspol on Thursday night, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Donny van de Beek returning to training at Carrington. United have been without all three for several weeks and the return of Maguire is particularly welcome news after Raphael Varane limped off against Chelsea on Saturday.

OWEN HARGREAVES THINKS LIVERPOOL TARGET COULD TURN MAN UNITED BACK AROUND

Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport’s Champions League Tonight that he thinks Liverpool target Jude Bellingham can turn Manchester United into a title-challenger – picking United, when asked where would he go if in Bellingham’s shoes. Bellingham, 19, nabbed his second goal of the season on Tuesday night as Dortmund eased to a comfortable 3-0 win over Danish side Copenhagen. The 15-time England star is just three appearances away from 100 games for Dortmund.

The youngster has managed to play 97 times despite only joining Dortmund from Birmingham City in 2020. But he has quickly established himself as one of the best young players in World football. He is linked with a return to England. Liverpool owners FSG believe that Bellingham will join their club next summer, for a huge fee of £100million. But for now, it simply remains as rumours. Hargreaves was asked for the identity of the club he’d join, if he was Bellingham. Continue reading

According to a report by Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Benjamin Sesko is likelier to join Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

According to reputed Spanish journalist Manu Sainz, Frenkie de Jong’s agent has been in London to meet Manchester United’s executives.
