Manchester United are now heading into the international break, and they go into that break on the back of a win.

Erik ten Hag’s men were headed for another home defeat before Scott McTominay stepped up and delivered in a big way. The Scot scored twice to turn things around in the final minutes of the game, and the Red Devils were left breathing a sigh of relief after ending a wretched run of form.

Ten Hag and his men can now regroup over the break and look to right some of their flaws ahead of facing a struggling Sheffield United side on the other side of the break. In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Sancho ‘offer’

United are reportedly set to be offered a deal to offload Jadon Sancho in January.

According to The Sun, Sancho, who is currently frozen out by Ten Hag due to a disagreement, is attracting interest from Juventus ahead of the winter window. It’s claimed Juve would want United to pay half of the winger’s £375,000-a-week wages, but they would agree an option to buy worth £62million, allowing United to potentially lose just £13million if all goes will.

It’s also claimed that Juventus could offer Federico Chiesa as part of a swap deal as an alternative.

Gary Neville has defended McTominay after the midfielder came in for criticism throughout the summer.

“Manchester United, yesterday I was happy,” he said on the Gary Neville Podcast. “I felt sorry for Brentford because I like them a lot, but it was huge.

“Huge in a sense that it would have been a depressing start to the season and by no stretch of the imagination does beating Brentford with two goals at home in the 93rd and 97th minute mean everything is okay, that’s far from it – it’s a mess. I was happy for Scott McTominay.

“The stuff on social media I have seen over the last few weeks, I think that’s the classic when a club is falling apart when you start to have your fanbase and media people questioning the work ethic of a kid who has come through the academy since the age of seven or eight. Sorry, I am not having that – that is one kid who would run through a brick wall for the club.

“The big question is the stability that is running right through the club at the moment, and it’s not there. I don’t think Manchester United will finish in the top five this season, I just don’t. I think they are way off it and I am surprised because seven or eight weeks ago, I had them finish third again.”
