Man Utd news LIVE: Erik ten Hag given £70m transfer warchest, Ronaldo LATEST, Oblak eyed – updates

    Morning Man Utd fans

    Manchester United picked up their first Europa League points of the season after beating Sheriff Tiraspol 2-0 on Thursday.

    The Red Devils eased to a comfortable victory away in Moldova, with Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo getting on the score sheet in the first half.

    England international Sancho showed why Gareth Southgate should have selected him for his latest Three Lions squad after his low strike broke the deadlock.

    Ronaldo then doubled the visitors’ lead just before the break from the penalty spot.

    It was the 37-year-old’s 699th goal in club football.

    In other news, SunSport have exclusively revealed how Erik ten Hag is set to be given at least a £70million transfer warchest to spend in January.

    But it could be more if Ronaldo goes.

    Ten Hag wants to sign three more players to go into his starting XI.

    And his budget could reach £100m if United sell Ronaldo for £20m – while also getting rid of his £450,000-a-week wages.

    One of those players United could look to sign is Atletico Madrid goalie Jan Oblak.

    Jeunes Footeux claims new boss Erik ten Hag has not been won over by David De Gea.

    And he is now ready to target Oblak, who is out of contract next summer, with United prepared to double his wages to £300,000-a-week.

    And finally, former United goalkeeper Ben Foster has announced his retirement from football.

    The 39-year-old has been without a club since leaving Watford at the end of last season.
