Here are your Manchester United evening headlines for Saturday, June 6.
Paul Scholes believes Manchester United have found their own David Silva
Paul Scholes believes Manchester United have found their very own David Silva in the signing of Bruno Fernandes.
Fernandes was awarded the Premier League player of the month award for February and will be looking to continue his electric form when United travel to face Tottenham in two weeks' time.
United legend Scholes admits he is impressed by the immediate impact made at Old Trafford and he has compared Fernandes with Man City legend David Silva.
“Sometimes it just takes one player to turn a team around and knit a team together,” Scholes told an MUTV group chat.
“I don't like talking about City, but you think of David Silva - that player that links all the play together, and I think we've found him in Fernandes. He's totally transformed the team.
“It's gone from watching a little bit of a dull team, to one player coming in and all of a sudden they look like they're going to create, they look like they're going to score goals every time he's in possession of the ball.
“He's fitted in straight away. Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra really struggled for the first six to eight months. I think they signed in January.
“It wasn't until the season after when they really got used to it and picked up and went on to have really amazing careers.
“But this lad, he's picked it up straight away, and it's been a real benefit. I keep saying he's transformed the team, but I really think he has.”
Bayern Munich manager explains why Manchester United should sign Kai Havertz
Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has explained just why Manchester United should be interested in a move for Kai Havertz in the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old is expected to attract plenty of transfer interest in the summer window having netted 15 goals and notched 8 assists while playing as an attacking midfielder this season.
Bayern Munich remain the favourites to sign Havertz should he become available, while MEN Sport revealed this week the youngster sees a move to the Premier League as a 'very realistic' possibility.
"I think very few coaches wouldn't want to have Kai Havertz in their team," the Bayern manager said.
"He has developed enormously at Leverkusen. He moves very well between the lines, is quite fast, safe on the ball and is good at finding space.
"He has got a strong goalscoring instinct at a young age."
Solskjaer drops hint over Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford Manchester United role after fixture restart
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dropped a hint that Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford may not be thrown into Premier League action straight away.
Both players have been out of action due to injuries this season, with the duo using the unexpected break to fight their ways back to fitness.
“Well, we hope everybody’s going to be ready for the first game,” he told the club site.
“We’ve had time out so I don’t think we can expect that those lads who’ve missed lots of the football can last the full game.”
He added: “But now the rules have changed, we can use five subs and have nine on the bench. I think that’s helpful because footballers, after being out for so long, going into competitive games will be a challenge for them and we have to look after them injury-wise and fitness-wise,” he added.
“We can’t just flog one player and say to them, ‘you play every game and every minute’ because it might be a period when we have to rotate quite often.”
