Man Utd player's 'stance' on Saudi Arabia transfer revealed

Your round-up of the latest Man Utd headlines as Erik ten Hag reflects on a decent point against Tottenham.

Manchester United picked up their first point of 2024 with a respectable 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham on Sunday. Rasmus Hojlund and Marcus Rashford scored for the Reds but leads were twice wiped out by Richarlison and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe was present at Old Trafford and the INEOS chief will already be planning for major changes. That will include transfer business and ManchesterWorld has taken a look at two of today's developments.

Anthony Martial is more likely to join a Premier League rival that move to Saudi Arabia in the summer once he becomes a free agent, according to reports. CaughtOffside reports that the striker is keen to stay in Europe, rather than head to the Middle East.

Martial is expected to play out the final six months of his contract, which expires in the summer, following United's decision not to activate a 12-month extension. Ten Hag insists club and player are in talks but any new deal will likely be on reduced terms.

The report names West Ham as one Premier League side interested in the 28-year-old. Across Europe, Inter Milan and Fenerbahce are also eyeing a potential free transfer.

Agents want Gore

A number of player agencies have reportedly pitched themselves to Dan Gore in a big to find him a loan move. The Daily Mail reports that United will consider loan approaches for the 19-year-old, who made his first-team debut against Crystal Palace in September but has seen minutes limited.

United are well-stocked in central midfield and welcomed Casemiro back into the matchday squad during Sunday's meeting with Tottenham. Mason Mount is also expected back soon while Christian Eriksen started at the weekend.

Gore is currently represented by his family but agents have approached the teenager with the promise of a move. League One quartet Bolton Wanderers, Blackpool, Shrewsbury Town and Fleetwood are all potential suitors.
