They mentioned that the 19-year-old trained with Sheffield Wednesday last season as part of United’s scheme to deploy youngsters to various Football League clubs to train with them for a few weeks, but have written nothing of any concrete interest either from them or others. clubs.

Otherwise, United confirmed that a midfielder had left the women’s team. Read more here.
09.08: Dutch Wout Westhorst So far he’s the most likely striker purchase, it seems, but United are still linked with other (right-footed) strikers too.
daily Mail With several case relays from the Italian Calciomercato it Edin Dzeko Now that can also be an option. The former City striker turned 36 but has scored 10 goals in 23 appearances for Inter this season. Real Madrid is also said to be interested.
We tried to find the original source of Dzeko’s rumors in Calciomercato, and This is amazing The article from a few days ago seems to have sourced it all. In this case, Calciomercato appears to be just rewriting possible Interest without anything concrete, and they wrote anyway that United had now turned in direction Marcus Thuram. This was written before Weghorst’s speculation really came to light.
We could also use a fourth tall striker: the Frenchman John Photo He writes that United is studying Nigerians Paul Onuacho, a striker over two meters tall who plays for Genk. According to the article, there should not be complete agreement at Old Trafford that Onuachu is the right player, but Ten Hag is said to be a fan favorite. The 28-year-old has also been in Denmark for many years, playing for Midtjylland (and Vejle on loan). He has 16 internationals with Nigeria, scoring three goals in those international matches. In Belgium, he scored 15 goals in 18 matches this season.
Jeune Footeux does not appear to be the most accurate source, and at the moment Weghorst looks like a more likely replacement than Edin Dzeko, Marcus Thuram and Paul Onuachu.
08.26: A continuation of what happened yesterday Harry Maguire-Poet (as a talkSPORT journalist claimed the United captain was on his way to Aston Villa, then deleted the tweet a few hours later after the whole thing had been dismissed from all sides), then Samuel Luckhurst wrote in Manchester Evening News Sources close to Maguire found the speculation absurd.
Part of the rumor seems to have been based on Maguire being in Birmingham at the weekend, but it must be golfing.
Maguire himself does not expect to be sold during the January window and Eric ten Hag, according to the paper, wants to keep the 29-year-old at least until the end of the season.
