MORNING UNITED FANS
Marcus Rashford is out but Raphael Varane could be back against Wolves – while United Napolis have made a ‘colossal’ contract proposal to Kim Min-jae.
Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo is also on the transfer radar, and there are more transfer talks about Declan Rice.
Head coach Erik ten Hag has confirmed that 29-goal top scorer Rashford will miss this afternoon’s home game of Prem with a leg injury.
But centre-back Varane has returned to the squad after missing out since mid-April with an ankle problem.
Fourth-placed United are two points behind Newcastle, who visit Leeds in tonight’s game at 12.30pm.
Ten Hag admits he’s glad he hasn’t played a game since last Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at West Ham.
He said: “We had a week and we needed it to rest, to recharge, to recharge.
“Because we’ve lacked that in both games, the last two games.”
There are increasing claims United are serious Arsenal rivals for Rice.
But neighbor City is now also being mentioned in connection with the Hammers’ moderator, who is estimated at £100m.
Newcastle are said to be close to bidding for United midfielder Scott McTominay.
And as far as possible new centre-backs go, a £50m+ offer for Kim seems likely.
The Red Devils, as well as Liverpool and Newcastle, have reportedly been eyeing £40million-rated, 23-year-old Frenchman Todibo.
