McTominay – Lionel Messi snubbed my shirt request

Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay has revealed that he almost missed out on the chance to get Lionel Messi's shirt after the Barcelona star initially refused to give it to him. The two players faced off twice in the quarterfinals of the 2019 UEFA Champions League where the Catalans ran out 4 nil winners on aggregate with Lionel Messi scoring a brace at Camp Nou in a game the Catalans dominated wholly. It can be recalled that an own goal by Luke Shaw was what separated the sides after the first leg at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, McTominay had asked his teammate and Argentina international Sergio Romero to try and get him the shirt of the six-time Ballon d'Or winner. However, the goalkeeper returned to the dressing room empty-handed as Messi refused to hand over his shit bec...

Liverpool and United to battle for Nuno Mendes

Sporting CP left-back Nuno Mendes is reportedly attracting the attention of two Premier League giants, Manchester United and Liverpool. The 18-year-old has been in scintillating form for the Portuguese outfit this season and they are unbeaten in the league and currently 9 points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga. Mendes has started 18 games for Sporting CP this season and is under contract. However, they might be forced to cash in on him if an offer comes as they intend to raise funds amid the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United and Liverpool are keeping tabs on Mendes as both clubs are on the lookout for left-backs to provide competition for the likes of Luke Shaw and Andy Robertson respectively.

Man United consider move for Brighton defender

According to journalist Jonathan Shrager, Manchester United are still keeping tabs on Brighton and Hove Albion defender Ben White after making recent inquiries about his availability. Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add more quality to his team in the summer and the signing of a center-back is the club's top priority.

Solskjaer’s United – Kings of the derby at the Etihad

Pep Guardiola and his City side were flying the Premier League and were taking lots of sides to the cleaners. Their fans were even anticipating a legendary run of wins until Ole Gunnar Solskajer and his Red Devils side happened. Man City seemed unstoppable ahead of the game but Manchester United would not have it. Their local rivals were heavy favorites for all 3 points and this was the impression from various football prediction sites. However, it counted for nothing eventually as the underdogs won the game. The Red Devils have been phenomenal away from home in the Premier League this season and the result on the day was further proof that their away form is no fluke, regardless of how they set up. Before the announcement of Solskjaer as Man United's boss, the Citizens were ow...

Man United prepare new deal for Bruno Fernandes

I guess only a handful knew about Bruno Fernandes' footballing genius in his days at Sporting CP. However, since his arrival in the Premier League, he has taken the league by storm and continues to impress. Therefore, Manchester United are readying a new offer for the Portuguese star and it is an improved contract according to numerous reports. Fernandes has been a key man at Old Trafford since joining in January 2020 and helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men finish third last season in the Premier League.  He is also playing his part nicely to ensure that they finish in the top 4 this term. It must be noted that only Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has outscored him in the league this season with 17 to  15 goals thus far. The attacking midfielder has also been a creative force for the R...

Rio Ferdinand asks Lingard to leave Man United

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has insisted that Jesse Lingard needs to leave the Red Devils as he is too good to play second fiddle. The Englishman made a loan move to West Ham in January after falling out-of-favor at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Since his move to the Hammers, Lingard has been very impressive and has made an immediate impact. He will be with the London outfit until the end of the 2020/21 season but Ferdinand has advised that he has to close the chapter on his United career and move elsewhere. 'I spoke before about this and said I thought Jesse should close a chapter on Man United because he hasn't been a part of the squad, he hasn't been a part of the team for ages,' Ferdinand told his FIVE YouTube channel.

Memorable Manchester United comebacks in history 

It's no more news that Manchester United have been impressive in the Premier League this season. The Red Devils are currently second on the table, having secured 46 points from 24 matches so far. The Red Devils recently claimed an emphatic victory against Southampton, with the Manchester side destroying their opponents by an unbelievable 9-0 score-line. However, the highflying Premier League side have failed to take full points against Everton and West Ham since then and this has dampened the festive mood around Old Trafford. Even though Manchester City are 10 points clear at the top, many still believe that Manchester United can win the league title this season. If you also think so, then it is a good opportunity to avail the bet9ja promo 2021 and place your bets on the Red Devil...

United stars don’t trust van de Beek, claims Hughes

Man United legend Mark Hughes has stated that the club's players do not trust summer signing Donny van de Beek. The Dutchman who joined from Ajax in a deal worth £40million was handed his 11th start of the season as the Red Devils toiled to progress to the next stage of the FA Cup with a 1 nil victory against West Ham at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Van de Beek has struggled to shine for the Red Devils this season and has just 1 goal and 1 assist in 25 appearances. This was the case again as he was ineffective against David Moyes' men throughout his stay on the pitch before being replaced by Bruno Fernandes in the 73rd minute. Mark Hughes, in a chat with talkSPORT, made his opinions on the state of the player at the club known: 'You just sense… it looks like they don't trust ...

United must prove they’re contenders and not pretenders

The fight for the 2020/21 Premier League title has heightened with Manchester City now at the top of the table. Liverpool have regained their form, and Manchester United will be looking to prove that their good form was not a fluke after failing to win in the last two games. The Red Devils will also want to prove that the 1:2 loss to bottom-placed Sheffield United at Old Trafford was just a blip and nothing more. If it's not, then title contention is over for the Red side of Manchester. We'll get to know when they face Southampton at Old Trafford on Tuesday. The race for the title has seen many teams occupy the top spot. However, in my opinion, I still believe that the noteworthy title contenders for the season remain Manchester City and Liverpool. I don't believe that the rest...

Man United reportedly make funny offer for Eriksen

Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to sign Inter Milan midfielder Cristian Eriksen in January, a journalist has revealed.
