Fellaini and Rojo to Leave Manchester United [Rumors]

Manchester United is open for the right offer to sell Marouane Fellaini as soon as this January transfer window [Mirror] while Marcos Rojo is reportedly also will be sold [Telegraph].

While I repeatedly say I am not a fan of the Belgian, I do have soft spot for the Argentinian.

Good luck to both players. Thank you for the memories.

Eric Bailly in African Team of The Year

United center back Eric Bailly has been named in the 2018 African Team of the Year.

He has physicality and skill to be a top central back. But at times he is recklessness, like that tackle he did against Bournemouth, which we are comfortably leading the game 4-1, can cost the team.

He is only 24 though so he’s had the time to learn.

Congratulations!

David De Gea in FIFA Team of The Year

This isn’t his best year but he’s currently the best goal keeper in the planet.

Hope he’ll do well at his job as caretaker manager. I don’t want to hate him.

Come on United!

Luke Shaw Signs New Contract

Happy to find that our best performer of the season so far just signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until June 2023, with the option to extend for a further year.

Well deserved!

Andreas Pereira Free Kick Against Liverpool

At the end we lost 1-4 but what a free kick that was by the young Brazillian.

Juan Mata’s Contract Extension Triggered

Good news that Juan Mata’s contract at Manchester United now runs until 2019.

I love him. He seems like a genuine and nice human being, despite being bloody rich and had spend almost his entire adult life living among glamorous superstars.

It’s lovely to see him staying.

Welcome to Manchester United Alexis Sanchez!

The club confirmed the arrival of the Chilean striker with the news that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has moved the other way around in a straight swap.

Sanchez:

“I am thrilled to be joining the biggest club in the world. The chance to play in this historic stadium and to work with Jose Mourinho was something I could not turn down. I am very proud to be the first Chilean player ever to play for United’s first team and I hope I can show our fans all around the world why the club wanted to bring me here.”

Mourinho:

“Alexis is one of the best attacking players in the world and he will complete our very young and talented group of attacking players. He will bring his ambition, drive and personality, qualities that make a Manchester United player and a player that makes the team stronger and the supporters proud of their club dimension and prestige.”

Sanchez will wear the iconic no. 7 shirt. Welcome to Manchester United!

Michael Carrick to retire at end of season

The captain will retire at the end of 2017/2018 season and reportedly is going to take a first team coaching role at United under Jose Mourinho.

The underrated ex-England midfielder was key in several title winning teams under Sir Alex Ferguson. I am sad to see him retire but glad that he’s staying at Manchester United.

Legend!
