All the latest news surrounding Manchester United as Erik ten Hag’s men take on Real Betis in Southern Spain.

Manchester United returned to action on Thursday night, taking on Real Betis in the Europa League.

The Red Devils are hoping to progress to the quarter-finals, and they will then turn attention to the FA Cup quarter-finals, facing Fulham this weekend for a chance to return to Wembley Stadium. The cup games will be a welcome distraction for Erik ten Hag’s men following disappointing results against Southampton and Liverpool over the last week or so.

As United look to pull off back-to-back cup wins, we have rounded up all the latest news surrounding Old Trafford.

Osimhen speaks

Victor Osimhen has opened up on his future amid continuing links with Manchester United.

“I don’t know what the future holds,” Osimhen told Sport1. “I think I’m on the right track. At the end of the season, I will sit down with my agents and discuss everything. I will also be in talks with the club. I am incredibly grateful to Naples. We will find a good solution together.”

Osimhen is set to cost £100million or more this summer, given he is one of the most promising young strikers on the market. On the plus side, Osimhen does look destined to leave Napoli this summer.

Paulinha race

Elsewhere, United are being linked with a move for Fulham star Joao Paulinha.

The Portugal international has been superb for the Cottagers this season, but he may wind up being a one-season player for Fulham, given the level of interest now being generated. According to Record, United, Chelsea and Liverpool are all interested in a move, and it’s worth noting that Fulham won’t make a full transfer fee on the midfielder.

Sporting CP are said to be owed 10% of the fee, which would surely be significantly more than the £20m Fulham paid last summer.
