Manchester United won their last Premier League game 2-1 before the international break away at Fulham. Young winger Alejandro Garnacho scored a last-gasp winner for them at Craven Cottage.

They return to league action later this month. In the meantime, here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the club...

Striker eyed

United are reportedly keen on AC Milan striker Rafael Leao. He is currently away at the World Cup with Portugal and has scored seven goals in 20 games for his club so far this season. The 23-year-old has emerged on the Red Devils’ ‘radar’ ahead of the January transfer window, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Midfielder update

Hannibal Mejbri is poised to stay at Birmingham City until the end of this season, despite talk of a premature recall this winter. The youngster has been a hit with the Blues in the Championship and is getting plenty of game time under his belt. He has provied this update on his situation to Goal:

“I am currently playing for Manchester United, and my goal is to achieve any achievement with the best team in the world, I am in Birmingham until next June, and I do my best to serve the team, and I will return to Manchester United and I do not know what is in the future.”

Summer signing on life so far

Casemiro has said he is ‘very happy’ at United following his summer move from Real Madrid. The Brazilian ace has made a positive impression in England so far. He has told the official club website: “I’m very happy and my family is also very happy too. I have nothing but thanks for everyone here at the club. Every member of staff here at the club is helping me a lot. The players, the coaching staff, and I’m genuinely so grateful, first and foremost, that everyone is so nice and friendly, and I believe with any doubt, that’s very important for me because everyone, without exception, is offering me a huge helping hand.”
