Rangnick comments on Martial’s Man Utd future amid exit talk

Just when Manchester United were beginning to build up a little bit of momentum in the Premier League for the first time in weeks, their campaign was knocked off course.

The suspension of matches against Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford due to Covid-19 outbreaks have brought Ralf Ragnick’s encouraging early work to a temporary halt.

With only half of the Week 18 fixtures going ahead this weekend due to further outbreaks, all eyes will now turn to Boxing Day, where there is currently a full list of fixtures to played. United are scheduled to face Newcastle United, who are languishing down in 19th place.

Until then, all those associated with the Red Devils will be kicking their heels but there are still plenty of United stories to run through.

Should United consider selling Rashford? Let us know in the comments below!

Ronaldo and Ferguson worked together brilliantly at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo on Ferguson gesture

Cristiano Ronaldo has spoke about the kind gesture made by Sir Alex Ferguson when his father was unwell.

The pair built up a strong relationship in Ronaldo’s first spell at Old Trafford, with the Portugal sensation developing into the best player on the planet in Manchester.

While they clearly worked well from a professional perspective, there was also a personal bond between the duo too. And in a feature with the United website, Ronaldo revealed how Ferguson was there for him during a tough time.

“Probably he doesn’t remember, but I will say it because it’s a beautiful story. One day, my father was in hospital, and I was so emotional, very low,” said the 36-year-old.

“And I spoke with him and he said: ‘Cristiano, go there for two or three days.’ We had difficult games and I was a key player in that moment. He said: ‘It will be tough because we have difficult games, but I understand your situation and I’ll leave you [out] and you can go and see your father’.”

Rashford’s comments examined amid Barcelona links

United forward Marcus Rashford has been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks and the England international has made some intriguing comments about playing in Spain in the past.

The current campaign has been a frustrating one for Rashford, with his progress set back by a number of issues. However, the 24-year has started both Premier League games under Rangnick.

The Red Devils would surely be at loath to sell one of their crown jewels if an offer did come in, but Rashford has said previously he would be open to a move to La Liga.

“I would never say no,” he said of playing overseas. “Other than United? I’m a big fan of Real Madrid and Barcelona, because they’ve always had great players and played attractive football.

“Everybody watches Real Madrid and Barcelona.”

Rangnick grants Keane wish

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has been critical of the club’s penchant for handing jobs on the coaching staff to former players.

It’s a habit that looks set to be broken under Rangnick, as the 63-year-old coach has already moved out some familiar faces in favour of his own personnel.

Michael Carrick and Kieran McKenna have both been moved on, with the latter part of the coaching setup during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge. McKenna is now in charge at Ipswich Town and another United coach, Martyn Pert, is set to join him at Portman Road.
