Manchester United round-up: Ashley Young compares Michael Carrick to Paul Scholes

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United fans, good day to you all.

Nothing much usually stirs on the club scene during the international break, but in that respect this one has been far from normal.

We’ve got all the latest on your club below - you can trust us when we say there are some juicy bits and bobs in there to keep you satisfied. Enjoy.

Young's best passer

Paul Scholes is considered to be one of the best passers the English game has ever seen - we all know that.

But, he’s got a rival as to the best passer Ashley Young has ever played with or against in Michael Carrick.

Young revealed how he considered Carrick to be in the same bracket as Scholes whilst undertaking an interview with Manchester United’s official website.

We have to say, both men are pretty good when it comes to picking a pass:

Bale move possible?

Elsewhere, transfer rumours went crazy yesterday as it was claimed that Gareth Bale is more open to an Old Trafford move than ever before.

We don’t want to fuel the fire unnecessarily, but it’s said Bale is ready to give up on his La Liga dream after failing to properly integrate. We’ll let you make your own minds up about that one.

De Gea interest from Real

Last but not least, other rumours suggest Real Madrid still remain interested in acquiring the services of David de Gea.

That’s right, the longest-running saga of 2015 could well continue into 2016 if reports are to be believed.

We don’t want to draw connections between De Gea and Bale, but if the connection is there to be made who are we to stop it?
