Manchester United round-up: Sir Alex Ferguson to help sign Cristiano Ronaldo

Published Add your comment

Manchester United fans, hello and welcome.

With European action very much on the agenda this week there’s plenty for us to get through, so we won’t waste time with long and drawn out introductions.

You should all know the score by now. Watch the video above for the latest headlines or read on below if added fluff is what tickles your fancy. Enjoy.

Sir Alex's Ronaldo plan

He’s the talk of the town at the moment, and not just because of his recent film release - where is Cristiano Ronaldo going to be playing past this season?

If you’re a Manchester United fan take heart, with Spanish reports suggesting Sir Alex Ferguson wants to play his part in luring the forward back to Old Trafford.


That’s right, Marca claims the wily old Scot still believes Ronaldo could have a significant impact on United’s fortunes. French giants Paris Saint-Germain are interested in him as well, though.

Scholes on Schweinsteiger

Moving on, Paul Scholes has admitted he expected more from Bastian Schweinsteiger this year, following the German’s relatively slow start to the campaign.

Scholes criticised Schweinsteiger’s handling of the ball - he’s just about the only man alive who can get away with doing that, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Here are both men doing what they do/did best:

Shaw time off

Meanwhile, Luke Shaw has apparently been given four days off by Louis van Gaal in a bid to raise his spirits. Reports claim the English left-back is ‘fed up’ with his current situation, with Van Gaal doing everything he can to help.

Here's how Shaw got injured (not for the squeamish amongst you):

The Dutchman confirmed in a press conference that he has allowed Shaw a break this week - coincidentally when PSV and the man who injured the 20-year-old, Hector Moreno - come to town.
