Keep up to date with all the latest Man Utd news, gossip and pundits’ views as we round up all the updates on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
DEA GEA V HENDERSON BATTLE
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that Dean Henderson could push David de Gea for his undisputed No.1 role at Manchester United next season.
The United boss has no doubt that 23-year-old Henderson will become the club’s and England’s first-choice goalkeeper at some stage after some superb displays on loan at Sheffield United.
United have been tracking Henderson’s progress and despite the player yet making a senior appearance for his parent club, he is rated very highly.
“Dean has made some great choices over the years and has developed fantastically,” said Solskjaer. “We’re looking at that in terms of where he’s going to be next season, but as yet that has not been decided.”
NDIDI EMERGES AS MAN UTD TARGET
Manchester United are seriously looking at Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi as Solskjaer plots to add strength to his midfield this summer, according to a report.
It’s claimed the Nigerian could be an option for the Red Devils, who are willing to spend £50m on his signature.
Ndidi did however reject talk of a switch to United just prior to football’s shutdown earlier this year.
But the prospect appears very much alive again after a big-spending European powerhouse cooled their interest.

SANCHO OPEN TO MAN CITY MOVE
Jadon Sancho is willing to return to Manchester City after it emerged Manchester United are struggling to stump up his fee.
That’s according to Monday’s Paper Talk, which reports Sancho will bury the hatchet with Pep Guardiola to secure the switch.
And with his move to Old Trafford hitting rocky ground, Sancho has ‘told friends’ he’d happily re-join City.
RASHFORD CALLS FOR MPS TO EXTEND FOOD VOUCHER SCHEME
Is there a bigger and better role model than Marcus Rashford?
In this video, it’s explained how the Manchester United striker has written to MPs to ask them to consider their current food voucher scheme. Rashford is on a mission to ensure no child in the UK goes hungry.
JANUZAJ HITS OUT AT VAN GAAL OVER UNITED LIES
Adnan Januzaj has blasted former Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal, though his rebuttal doesn’t appear to mesh well with the statistics.
The Belgian, 25, burst onto the scene under the stewardship of David Moyes at Old Trafford.
But under Van Gaal he fell out of favour and departed the club 18 months after the Dutchman’s arrival.
But it seems Januzaj feels hurt at what his former manager said about him and the winger has now had his say…
HOPE NOT LOST FOR ALEXIS SANCHEZ
Alexis Sanchez has been told he can yet resurrect his Old Trafford career.
The Chilean has endured a torrid two-and-a-half years since he moved to Old Trafford in 2018.
A lacklustre 18 months in Manchester resulted in a humbling loan exit to Inter Milan this season.
Sanchez’s form has fared no better in Italy, however, with just one goal returned from 16 appearances across all competitions.
And with a return to Old Trafford on the horizon, Sanchez has been told all is not lost for him – on one condition.
MAN UTD TO PUSH THROUGH JACK GREALISH TRANSFER
United’s struggles to sign Sancho will see Ed Woodward and Co instead focus all their energy back to Jack Grealish.
The Villa star is rated in the £70m bracket, but talk of a move had gone quiet in recent weeks.
However, with Sancho costing too much and with Kai Havertz also difficult, the Daily Star says Grealish is back on the menu.
