Manchester United are now preparing to return to action following the international break.

Erik ten Hag’s men are locked into the top four race, currently third and three points ahead of fifth-placed Newcastle United, who are this weekend’s opponents. The Red Devils know a win would be a huge boost in their bid to wrap up a Champions League spot, and they will also have upcoming Europa League and FA Cup clashes in the back of their minds.

As United put the final touches on their preparations, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.

Scholes praise

Paul Scholes has been speaking about United youngster Alejandro Garnacho amid impressive performances this season.

“I’m really excited about him,” Scholes said on Webby & O’Neill. “Whenever I see him I’m impressed. He’s a superstar in the making. He’s so brave in possession. He’s very much the way Cristiano was as a young player.

“He doesn’t mind being kicked, he gets up, he goes for more he scores goals. He’s got a lot of growing to do and once he gets a manly body and physical strength, I don’t think there’s much stopping him.”

De Gea speaks

David De Gea has been speaking amid his expiring contract and talk of an exit.

“Of course I’ve been here many, many years enjoying every moment in this club, playing many, many games,” De Gea told Sky Sports News. “Of course is great to be here, it’s a massive club, I love the club and I’m really happy here of course.

“It has been the same over the years, a lot of noise about everything in this club but the players, we just focus on games. Especially the one we have on Sunday (against Newcastle United) is a massive one for us because we want to finish in the top four. Like I say we have many, many games so we have to be really focused on training well, recovering well, helping the team and that’s the most important thing, rather than contracts or anything.”
