Manchester United’s hopes of securing a transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo in the near future are - let’s face it - probably slim to none, but the whirlpool of speculation still swirls round suggesting he is to leave Real at the end of the season. If and when he does there are two main candidates in United and French champions PSG. The latter might have the money, but United have the power of Ronaldo’s mother. Yes, reports in the Daily Mirror claim the woman who birthed arguably the best footballer on the planet wants her son to pick Old Trafford, as she’s not convinced Paris is safe in the wake of the recent terror attacks. Moving on, Marouane Fellaini played a staring role in the United U21 side’s victory over Liverpool last night. He bagged a goal and an assist as the Red Devils won a thrilling encounter 3-2. He probably won’t be featuring for Van Gaal this weekend though.
