    United stats misleading

    Manchester United's stats do not tell the full story, according to Andros Townsend.

    The Luton winger has praised the Red Devils after their recent defeat at Old Trafford.

    Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Townsend said: "They are difficult. We were able to defend against them well but similar to Liverpool they just find a way.

    "Bruno Fernandes drifts out to the outside left position, links up with Reguilon, they get a few crosses that way. Dalot comes into the midfield creating an overload and we did limit them to very few chances and defended well.

    "Unfortunately, we switched off at one set piece and that was our whole game plan done. At the top level you need to stay switched on for 95 to 96 minutes because these top teams can punish you."

    The British billionaire is set to secure a 25 per cent stake in the Red Devils.

    According to the Manchester Evening News, Murtough will leave his role once Ratcliffe's investment goes through, with a new appointment set to follow.

    Andre Onana has returned to Manchester United after picking up an injury on international duty.

    The goalkeeper was forced off with 10 minutes to go in Cameroon's win over Mauritius on Friday.

    He is understood to have suffered a pelvis injury and has now returned to his club, having been ruled out of his country's clash with Libya on Tuesday.

    Erik ten Hag will now be hoping he can return to action against Everton on Sunday.

    Martial could leave

    Anthony Martial could leave Manchester United in January for the right price.

    Fabrizio Romano reports that the Frenchman would be allowed to depart Old Trafford if the club's asking price is met.

    However, United would be happy for him to stay if there is not suitable interest.

    Martial is out of contract next summer and has scored just once in 15 appearances so far this season.

    The Red Devils have been linked to Goncalo Inacio and Jean-Clair Todibo.

    According to the Mirror, Sir Jim Ratcliffe's impending investment will help boost the club's coffers.

    Van der Beek escape plan

    Donny van der Beek is reportedly being eyed up by Galatasaray.

    The ex-Ajax midfielder, 26, has continued to be overlooked by manager Erik ten Hag.

    Media reports in Turkey claim the Dutch midfielder could move as soon as January.

    Incredibly, van der Beek has only started six Premier League matches since joining the club in 2020.

    Premier League clubs lost fortunes

    THE first winter World Cup cost Premier League clubs a whopping £255MILLION in “lost” wages.

    Players were out for five extra days per injury on average once the top flight resumed on Boxing Day following the halt caused by the dash to the desert.

    The study by insurance group Howden shows the impact on Europe’s leading leagues of the Qatar tournament which caused a six-week disruption to the domestic calendar.

    While Fifa’s insurance policy covered injuries sustained during the World Cup, issues sustained after the tournament were surveyed.

    Back-to-back major tournaments at club and international level from this summer are likely to have an even bigger impact in coming years.

    And it will only increase the pressure for Uefa and Fifa to think again about their seemingly endless expansion drive.

    Remarkably, despite sending 16 players to the World Cup — a total only exceeded by Spanish giants Barcelona — Manchester City suffered less than their rivals.

    The Spain international was forced to hobble off in the first half of his country's Euros qualifier against Georgia.

    Gavi has been labelled one of the best young players in the world.

    Ex-United star scores four

    Ex-Man Utd star Romelu Lukaku hit Azerbaijan for four as he jumped up the all-time international goal list to seventh.

    The striker netted a brilliant hat-trick inside 30 minutes of the Euros qualifier on Sunday.

    And Lukaku made it four moments later before Leandro Trossard of Arsenal's 90th minute effort completed a 5-0 thrashing.

    Belgium had already qualified for next summer’s tournament.

    But the result saw them seal top spot in Group F, one point ahead of rivals Austria.

    Sanchez's poo reveal

    Alexis Sanchez has fumed that POO trickled into the showers after Chile's home clash with Paraguay.

    The match took place at Colo Colo's 43,595-capacity Estadio Monumental David Arellano.

    Sanchez and Co endured a frustrating evening, drawing 0-0 with Paraguay despite Robert Rojas' 44th minute red card.

    Things got even worse, however, when they attempted to take their post match showers.

    Explaining the vile situation, the former Manchester United and Arsenal star fumed: "At the Colo-Colo stadium I was sitting stretching and excrement from ourselves in the shower came out of the drain."

    Everton stars targeted

    Man Utd could reportedly be ready to pounce for two Everton stars if the club's problems continue.

    The Toffees were hit with a ten-point deduction this week after being found guilty of breaching financial fair play rules.

    Things could go from bad to worse for Everton too with Leeds, Leicester and Burnley reportedly readying a £300million compensation claim against the club.

    If ordered to settle Everton will enter administration – and could even face a further nine-point deduction – as new owners 777Partners will reportedly be unable to pay up.

    And that means they could be forced to sell some of their prized assets.

    United are understood to have a long-term interest in Amadou Onana and could make a move for the midfielder if Everton are plunged into uncertainty, report The Express.

    United are also said to be interested in youngster Jarrad Branthwaite.

    The defender has caught the eye since breaking into the Everton first-team under Sean Dyche, having impressed on loan at PSV last season.

    Rashford in training

    Marcus Rashford was all smiles in England training amid fears he was going to be sidelined with injury.

    The Manchester United star was subbed off for Cole Palmer after 61 minutes during Friday's 2-0 win over Malta.

    Rashford had collided with Trent Alexander-Arnold just before and looked in pain as he trudged off the pitch.

    Manager Gareth Southgate attempted to play down injury fears, saying: "I think he is probably okay.

    "We just thought given the nature of the collision it was a chance to get Cole into the game.

    "I haven’t assessed too much but I think he was okay when he came off."

    Ratcliffe will turn Utd around

    Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been tipped to turn things around at Manchester United by one of his former managers – Adrian Ursea.

    Ursea told The Mirror: "The biggest difference was the club became certain there would no longer be problems with money.

    "The first time I was there there were huge financial problems but once Ineos arrived – they went. I saw Jim sometimes but he only visited training sessions once or twice – not more.

    "After I left, Ineos began spending more money on transfers.

    "They spent around £52million in the market. Before, the club wouldn't permit a transfer that cost more than £4.3m or £5.2m.

    "Then Nice started to have the power to spend up to £13m on players because with Ineos the money was there. It was very important to save the situation – relegation would have been a catastrophe for the club."

    Classy United

    Man Utd have launched a classy initiative that will see former academy players given extra support.

    The scheme saw seven ex-players return to the club's Carrington training base to hand them additional support as they recover from injury or new pathways.

    Man Utd Academy Director Nick Cox confirmed this would be the first of many events the club would be putting on to bolster its Alumni Programme.

    Big boost for club and country

    Firm believer in route to success

    The Red Devils are using an American recruitment firm to find them a new top talent spotter.

    United have hired the Los Angeles-based Pace agency to sift through candidates for an ‘emerging talent scout’ role.

    The Old Trafford club think that they are falling short in that department compared to neighbours Manchester City and Prem rivals Chelsea.

    But outsourcing rather than using their own people to discover someone suitable is a surprise move.

    It comes after Sir Jim Ratcliffe made his first major power play at United by axing the club’s chief executive Richard Arnold.

    Right or Ron?

    David De Gea has turned down a potential £500,000 a week and a chance to link up with Cristiano Ronaldo again in Saudi Arabia, SunSport can exclusively reveal.

    Keeper De Gea, 33, is without a club after leaving Manchester United in the summer.

    Ronaldo’s Saudi side Al-Nassr were keen to make him the latest big-name addition and retain hope of talking him round.

    But sources close to De Gea insist wife Edurne is not keen on joining the Middle East exodus.

    United could yet offer De Gea a short-term deal, while Valencia’s interest in the Spaniard may be scuppered by their financial issues.

    There is also interest from Inter Miami and the prospect of playing in MLS does hold some appeal.

    Going on a 'mann hunt

    United are reportedly plotting a shock swoop for Antoine Griezmann.

    The Red Devils have met with the Frenchman's representatives over a possible transfer.

    It is said Griezmann's release clause is just £21.9m – a very affordable price.

    And in order to seal the switch, United could offer Griezmann as much as TRIPLE his current wages – taking him up to around £350,000 per week.

    Roo beauties
