Manchester United are embarking on the second day of their warm weather training break in Dubai ahead of the biggest test of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s caretaker reign so far – Sunday’s trip to face Tottenham.
We’ve made sure you don’t miss anything while the Reds are away – that includes contract renewals, transfer developments and injury news – keeping you in the loop.
Herrera set to extend deal
According to the Sun, Solskjaer has convinced Ander Herrera to extend his current deal at Old Trafford. His contracts runs out at the end of the season, which means he can currently negotiate with foreign clubs, but the caretaker manager wants him to stay because of his passion for the club.
Herrera is not the only Red who is a fan of the temporary boss as the Mirror report that Solskjaer should be the club’s full-time boss, after he has won them over already during his brief reign in charge.
Latest on Koulibaly
In transfer news, ESPN report that Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is ‘open’ to a summer move to Old Trafford, despite having a contract with the Italian outfit that runs until 2023.
France Football – via Sport Witness – explain that the situation has accelerated as a result of the racial abuse the defender received in a recent match.
If he does move to Old Trafford, Koulibaly could link up with Marcos Rojo, whom Solskjaer revealed has left the Dubai trip early due to an injury recurrence.
