Good morning Man Utd fans
Erik ten Hag may be forced to play an unhappy Cristiano Ronaldo in their Premier League opener this weekend after Anthony Martial was ruled out through injury.
The Red Devils kick off their campaign at home to Brighton on Sunday.
And it appeared unlikely that Ronaldo would feature as his future remains up in the air following a summer of speculation which has seen him play very little part in pre-season.
But now Ten Hag could be left with no choice but to play the Portuguese superstar up front as Martial is not available.
In transfer news, there have been lots of conflicting reports in the past 24 hours regarding Red Bull Salzburg hot-shot Benjamin Sesko.
Fabrizio Romano believes Manchester United have been leading discussions ahead of Chelsea for weeks, while Sky Sports News’ Mark McAdam reckons that the forward favours a move to a lesser European club in order to continue his development.
Also, United youngster Charlie Savage looks set for a season away from Old Trafford on loan.
The 19-year-midfielder is attracting interest from a number of Championship and League One clubs regarding a temporary transfer.
Savage, the son of former Wales nuisance Robbie, made his United debut last season against Young Boys in the Champions League.
The teenager is highly regarded by the Red Devils and impressed in pre-season, but it’s understood that regular first team football is seen as vital to his development.
