Erik ten Hag’s men have been in good form of late and will be aiming to continue their remarkable record at Villa Park - United haven’t lost there in the league since 1995.

In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Red Devils.

Gakpo boost

United are said to be closing in on a deal for PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo.

According to journalist Rudy Galetti ,via Sports Witness, the Red Devils are ‘about to finalise’ a deal for Gakpo, a player they tried to sign during the summer transfer window. Gakpo has been superb again for PSV this season and he is likely to be on the move in the winter window.

United and Leeds attempted to sign the winger in the summer, and both could reignite that interest in 2023.

Carrick eyes deal

Former United midfielder Michael Carrick is said to be keen on shopping at his former club after taking over as Middlesbrough manager last month.

According to Football League World, Carrick is eyeing a deal for Zidane Iqbal ahead of the January transfer window as he attempts to turn things around on Teesside.

Iqbal is a 19-year-old midfielder who regularly trains with the senior team, and Carrick has clearly bookmarked the youngster as someone he would like to work with, having spent plenty of time around Carrington. Iqbal could, therefore, get a taste of first-team football in the Championship, likely on loan.
