Manchester United fans, you’re almost there!
Of course, I’m referring to the end of the working week which, at this stage, is around 30 hours away (UK schedule). You can manage it, I’m sure, but if you can’t then allow us to give you some motivation.
Below we’ve compiled all the latest, breaking, news. Take it all in and leave thoughts and opinions in the comments box provided.
De Gea's experience
David de Gea could well be regretting not having moved to Real Madrid this summer, but if he is then he’s doing a very good job of hiding it.
The Spaniard signed a new Old Trafford deal and was reinstated as starting goalkeeper after missing out on a summer transfer, but he explained how the experience had helped him mature as a player.
The 24-year-old admitted the ordeal was tough but said he was grateful to all those at Manchester United who tried to help him at the time - the last was that both Real and United blame each other for said deal breaking down.
“I am a guy who likes to put the bad things and difficult times behind me,” De Gea said, as per The Guardian.
“I had a lot of tough times and I know what it is. We must move forward, working equally and always strong.
“It’s a learning process that gives football hard moments but that make you mature and grow. These are things that you learn in the world of football.
"You have to keep working and try to improve in every training session. Everyone who works for Manchester respected me, I tried to help and I am very grateful to them.”
Blind's favourite position
Elsewhere, Daley Blind has revealed which position he feels most comfortable playing at Old Trafford and, perhaps surprisingly, it’s at centre-back.
The Dutchman was signed on the back on a brilliant World Cup showing last year at left-back, but he’s been moved into the centre to combat United’s lack of options. He looks to have formed a tidy partnership there with Chris Smalling.
No Keane/Fergie clash
Moving on, Roy Keane won’t be featuring in a charity match organised by David Beckham on November 14, where a Great Britain and Ireland XI will take on the Rest of the World.
It was anticipated that Keane might return to play under Sir Alex Ferguson again - the Scot is managing the Great Britain and Ireland side - but the game clashes with the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2016 fixture against Germany.
