All the latest news surrounding Manchester United after a memorable weekend for Erik ten Hag’s men.

Manchester United enjoyed a fine weekend all-round after booking their spot in the FA Cup final. Brighton made life mightily difficult for the Red Devils at Wembley, but Erik ten Hag’s men squeaked through via penalties, setting up a final with Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Newcastle thumped Tottenham in the Premier League, and while that meant United slipped to fourth for now, the result proved to be a big boost for the Red Devils’ top four hopes, with a void opening up between fourth and fifth. As United prepare to return to league action, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.

Shearer points out tweak

Alan Shearer has noticed a tactical tweak from United following their win over Brighton.

“I think they also learned from what happened in midweek,” Shearer told the BBC. “They know that Brighton would like to press and they didn’t have a chance to do that because every time the goalkeeper had it, every single time, he just went long.

“No nonsense, get it up front as quick as you can, get it up front, not going to make any mistakes. And, when he was needed - which was three or four times - he pulled off some really good saves, didn’t he?”

Osimhen latest

On the transfer front, United are said to be preparing to push ahead with their plan to land Napoli star Victor Osimhen. According to Calciomercato via SportsWitness, United are ‘ready to make a comeback’ in the summer transfer window, already declaring their intentions to land Osimhen. Though, it’s also detailed that Bayern Munich are interested in pulling off a deal for the eye-catching frontman.

The bad news is that Napoli are said to want more than £130million for Osimhen this summer, and that could be testing for United, particularly given the uncertainty over their ownership situation.
