Speaking on ESPN FC, former Liverpool star Nicol believes the Red Devils are on course to land the signature of Mandzukic and the veteran should prove a worthwhile signing, considering the club’s struggles upfront this term.

Wenger dismisses Manchester United’s prospects of winning the league

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not believe Manchester United have the credentials to compete for the Premier League title this term. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to offer opportunities to a number of young players this term but that has not necessarily enhanced the club’s performances at the beginning of the season.

Speaking to BeIN Sports, Wenger said that the current United side have plenty of potential but they have not been able to provide a collective performance, he told: “When you see United, they are one of the examples where there’s a potential. But they have not found a collective way. Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the play of a team like United, altogether. That’s the question mark now. You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready. When you watch them play, they are not a candidate to fight for the championship. Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes and Beckham did over a number of years? I’m not convinced.”

Kleberson believes Manchester United should part ways with Paul Pogba

Former Manchester United midfielder Kleberson has said that the Red Devils should take the option of selling Paul Pogba this summer, given the midfielder does not suit the club’s style of play. The Frenchman has been with the Red Devils for the past three seasons but he has acknowledged that he could move on during the current transfer window.

In a report covered by The Mirror, Klebersonappreciated that the Frenchman remains a great player, though he does not seem to suit the Red Devils.He said: “It is the right move to sell Paul Pogba, he’s a great player and his talent is unbelievable, but his style is a little bit different, and not particularly what Man United need. He could use this opportunity now to leave and get a fresh start, play in a different atmosphere, and embrace a new challenge. Sometimes it’s hard to come to Manchester United and adapt to play a particular style. It doesn’t mean he’s not a good player with great quality.”

Neil Shipperley believes Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s move to Manchester United is a fair business

Former Crystal Palace star Neil Shipperley believes the Eagles would be doing fair business with the sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United this summer. The England youth international only made his first-team debut for the Eagles last year but he has made a good impression in the Premier League to attract big-club interest.

Among those, United have been deemed favourites to seal a transfer agreement for around £50m and Shipperley believes the Eagles should sanction the move, he said: “I think it’s good business for a right-back that has made 42 appearances. It’s a great deal for the club. This is football at the moment. There’s not a bidding war for him. Manchester United are the club. No-one else is coming in for him so you’re not going to have this bidding war. I think £50m or £55m is a fair deal.”
