Man Utd news LIVE: Juventus swap deal, Eriksen transfer talks opened, top four warning | Football | Sport
Paul Pogba swap deal
Italian newspaper Tuttosport say the Serie A champions are desperate to re-sign the France international.
And Mario Mandzukic, Emre Can, Daniele Rugani or Blaise Matuidi could be included in a swap deal.
Pogba hinted in the summer he’s keen to quit Old Trafford for a new challenge elsewhere.
Christian Eriksen talks
United have opened talks with Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen over a potential January transfer, Spanish publication El Desmarque claims.
However, El Desmarque say that Eriksen has now given up on any chance of making a move to the Bernabeu.
The report states United will place a bid of £42million for the attacking midfielder in the January transfer window.
Top four warning
United need to beat Brighton on Sunday if they are to have any hope of reaching the Premier League top four, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas claims.
“Normally I think this would be a straightforward win, but it is not as easy as that for this Manchester United team,” Nicholas wrote in his predictions for Sky Sports.
“Brighton are starting to score more openly and are starting to get there.
“Brighton are more attacking-minded than they have ever been before, so this then becomes an open game.
“I do still think that Graham Potter will change his style accordingly.
“Leandro Trossard came off the bench and made a difference. He is a troubling and exciting player and will cause danger.
“These are the games that matter for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and you have to win these games to think about the top four again.”
