Manchester United‘s top-four hopes are diminishing by the day, and the pressure is on the Red Devils to turn around their form and secure Champions League qualification.
Ralf Rangnick’s men put on a dismal display against city rivals Manchester City over the weekend, looking bereft of confidence as they slumped to a 4-1 defeat.
As things stand, United are one point behind Arsenal but have played three games more, and it’s looking increasingly likely that Europa League football is the most that can be secured for next season.
A new manager and a number of fresh signings are required, though, the latest rumours seem to suggest there could yet be significant departures first.
Here are the latest reports:
Marcus Rashford is dominating the transfer talk today, with the Daily Mail reporting he is considering his future at Old Trafford amid struggles under Ralph Rangnick.
According to 90min, The England international is already attracting plenty of attention, with Arsenal and Newcastle United already reportedly interested.
Rashford is under contract until 2023, although that could be extended by a further year.
There are also question marks over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed the clash with City.
The Athletic have claimed that the United players were caught off-guard by his absence.
Meanwhile, footballtransfers.com suggest Ronaldo is using his trip to Portugal to plan a move away from Old Trafford.
Youngster on the radar?
United are said to be close to snapping up Brighton talent Toby Collyer.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the Reds have agreed a two-year deal with the Brighton & Hove Albion youngster.
The 18-year-old is said to have had a trial with United and he is expected to strengthen the development squad.
