Football News

Good morning, Manchester United supporters.

Another week begins, more stories emerge, and we settle back into the rhythm of delivering all the biggest stories to be found across the world.

Read on below for the breaking news and remember to leave thoughts and opinions in the comments box provided. You never know, you might start a debate!

Xavi's admission

Once you’ve won everything there is to win in football, as well as having established yourself as a legend at arguably the biggest club in the world, there isn’t much left to regret.

Well, Barcelona hero Xavi is clearly an exception as he’s suggested he would have liked to have played for either Manchester United or Liverpool during his career.

The World Cup winner, now playing for Al Sadd of Qatar, said United were his favourite English side. Imagine the midfield Sir Alex Ferguson might have had with him.

"To be honest, the Premier League is a big attraction for any player. It's brilliant - the stadiums, the pitches, the fans and how they live football over there – it's all incredible over there," Xavi said, as relayed by FourFourTwo.

"There are many great sides like Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool. If I had to select one, it would have to be a club with a great history; maybe Manchester United or Liverpool.

"I know that there are clubs who have emerged quite recently, like Manchester City for example, but United are my favourites, historically speaking."

Herrera's plans

From one midfielder to another, Ander Herrera has revealed his plans for the future, and his next step is to ensure he gets more involved with his national side.

Herrera is a regular for United but not for Spain. He’s aiming to change that in the near future, but, of course, that won’t be an easy feat given the options Vicente del Bosque has at his disposal.

Martial's assist

Now to finish, and Anthony Martial was at it again last night, assisting Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud for the France international team.

Martial continued his good run of form by notching an assist for Giroud as Les Blues beat Denmark 2-1. £36million was pricey, but he looks to be worth every penny.
