Rio Ferdinand excites fans
Rio Ferdinand sent Manchester United fans overdrive after responding with an encrypted message to Saul Niguez’s latest tweet.
Saul said on Sunday that he was going to announce a “new club” on Wednesday, which made fans dream that he might be on his way to Old Trafford.
The midfielder counts the days on his official Twitter account and Ferdinand responded to his last update with sneaky-eyed emoji.
This is not the first time Ferdinand has commented on the transfer reports, after using the exact same emoji when United chased Bruno Fernandes, who finally joined the club in January.
Manchester United transfer position to Thiago Almada
Manchester United have identified adolescent Argentinian winger Thiago Almada as a possible transfer alternative to Jadon Sancho.
Young Wales duo David Brooks and Rabbi Matondo are among these alternatives, as MEN reports, and United have other right-wing options.
Almada, 19, is said to spark considerable interest in Europe after playing for Velez Sarsfield in the Argentinian league.
Sources in Argentina told United Sport about United’s admiration for the player, although the teenager appears to be a backup target as it stands. Manchester City nearly signed Almada last summer, but the deal failed to materialize when it signed a new contract with Velez.
Fernandes launches a challenge
Bruno Fernandes admits he will have to adjust his game when Manchester United return to action later this month.
The 25-year-old has already surprised many experts with his impact since his arrival in January, but the Portuguese international admits that it would be naive to expect similar dominance when United returns to action in two weeks.
“My vision of coming to Manchester United is that I am in one of the best clubs in the world, for me, the best club in England,” said Fernandes. Talent is not enough.
“My idea for the next few years is doing better than I have done so far.
“For me, in games, it is not enough because now it may be the hardest part. Players start to recognize your game, start to know how you move, how you pass, how you shoot and things get difficult now.
“So now I have to improve myself, work more and understand the teams I play against better, because they will understand me better, but I have to be ready to better understand the difficulties they may have. “
