Ole Gunnar Solskjaer extended his perfect start as Manchester United manager with a hard-fought 2-0 win over Newcastle United last night.
Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford got the goals as the Reds’ patience was eventually rewarded in the second half against an tenacious Magpies outfit.
In the aftermath of that, as United prepare to host Championship strugglers Reading on Saturday, we’ve made sure you don’t miss any of the latest news…
Solskjaer wants the job full-time
Perhaps unsurprisingly after making himself a realistic contender for the job with his start to his caretaker reign, Solskjaer has confirmed that he wants the job on a full time basis.
Fellaini on the way out?
Marouane Fellaini did not feature in the matchday squad last night and reports in Turkey, via the Daily Star, claim that Fenerbahce are lining up a January swoop for the midfielder, who only extended his Old Trafford deal in the summer.
Another player who could be on the move is Eric Bailly, but Sport Witness report that Estadio Deportivo claim Sevilla – United’s conquerors in last season’s Champions League – would need a contribution to his wages from the Reds in order to take him on loan this month.
Meanwhile, the Independent report that United are expected to remain frugal this month, unless the opportunity to sign an elite central defender comes up.
