Welcome to the United On My Mind d aily-round up, where we take a look at some of the best Manchester United stories which you might have missed.

Wednesday's dramatic 3-2 win in the Champions League was certainly a moment to enjoy for United supporters and it's become the fresh talk around the town, easing the pressure on the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

There's been plenty of people still talking about the victory, not just in England, but across Europe.

Solskjaer was asked about Donny van de Beek, whilst Bruno Fernandes continues to support his manager. There's also some juicy transfer news involving Dani Olmo, so let's have a look...

'Players back the manager' - Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes said Solskjaer has the full backing of the players after the 3-2 win against Atalanta.

He told Brazil's TNT Sports : "Of course, obviously, he is our coach. We follow him every day. We show that. We follow his ideas and we will continue to do so.

"We believe in our coach and our staff... we need to do what the coach tells us because our coach is the maximum exponent of what we must respect. He has been here for three years and we've done good things. It's true that we haven't won anything up to now, but the team has shown it has grown a lot.

"We have a lot to improve on and the coach also knows there has to be some improvement at their end but that is part of football. Every day we are learning something new. But football is the present and it's the now."

Rating: It's nice to see the players still support the manager to ease the pressure. No United fan wants a repeat of the Mourinho days and Wednesday's second-half performance showed the players still want to fight for Solskjaer. Very good to see.

United 'interested in Dani Olmo'

According to Sport Bild , United are interested in signing RB Leipzig forward Dani Olmo.

Apparently, United have sent scouts to watch Olmo several times and he was reported to be on the club's list before he eventually signed for Leipzig.

United have a history of signing Bundesliga players, having signed Jadon Sancho in the summer from Borussia Dortmund, but the England international is experiencing a slow start to life at Old Trafford.

Rating: The news is coming from Christian Falk, who is a respected German journalist that has good knowledge of all things related to German football. I would definitely watch this space because United were heavily linked with Olmo before. It wouldn't surprise me if they went in for him again.

Solskjaer questioned about van de Beek frustration

So, Solskjaer had a word with Dutch outlet RTL 7 , who asked him about Donny van de Beek, whose game time is non-existent at the moment.

Solskjaer was specifically asked about the incident when van de Beek was caught on camera throwing his chewing gum and here's what his manager had to say about it:

He was quoted by Voetbal International as saying: “It’s wiser to throw away your chewing gum and not to swallow it, we learned that as children. And giving your chewing gum to someone else is not possible in these corona times either. Sensible, so I could see he was throwing it away.

Writers and presenters who share your passion for the red side of Manchester will be producing written, visual and audio content to reflect the mood in the stands as well as the press box.

“When you see our team, you know we have good players. I hope for Donny that he gets his chances and then takes them. Now I didn’t need him, but I know I can always count on him.

“He’s still trying hard, but it’s hard for him. I understand that. He is disappointed and frustrated, but he works hard every day and does it with a big smile.”

Rating: Van de Beek isn't getting game time and I feel sorry for him. He deserves to be given a shot because United's midfield continues to be a problem. It's got to the point now though where I highly doubt Solskjaer is going to give him a chance to shine.
