Manchester United ‘work’ on attacker deal as transfer speculation addressed by Rangers player

Manchester United welcome former boss David Moyes back to Old Trafford as they prepare to face West Ham United on Sunday. The Red Devils go into the game on the back of their 3-0 win over Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League last time out.

They drew their last Premier League clash 1-1 away at Chelsea. Here is a look at some of the latest news coming out of the club...

Interest in defender addressed by team-mate

Rangers defender Ben Davies is not surprised that Leon King has been the subject of Premier League transfer speculation. The Red Devils have been linked with the young defender recently after his breakthrough into first-team football. His team-mate Davies has said, as per Football Scotland: “I think that’s to be expected when you’re that young and playing in the Champions League and week-in-week-out for Rangers, so I’m not surprised.

“But I know Leon’s got his feet on the floor and he’s just got tunnel vision each game and he’s definitely got ability and he’s a good player.”

Contract deal eyed

United are reportedly hoping to tie up a new deal for Alejandro Garnacho. The youngster is being tipped for a bright future in the game and has already made six first-team appearances despite being only 18-years-old. According to reporter Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, the club continue to ‘work’ on a contract extension for him (see tweet below):

Loan man warned

Hannibal has been a hit in the Championship since joining Birmingham City on loan. The United youngster is picking up yellow cards too often for his manager John Eustace’s liking. He was booked against Queens Park Rangers last time out and had to be substituted and his boss said afterwards, as per SportBible: “I was contemplating bringing him [Hannibal] off at half-time, if I am going to be honest. I spoke to him, spoke to the staff and he assured me he’d be OK. I think it lasted about four minutes.

“It’s something we have got to watch but he plays on the edge, that’s why he’s so good, a top player. I am certainly not going to stop him from doing what he does but he has to realise the importance of managing the games at times.”
