Manchester United fans, hello and welcome to the last round-up of the week.

There’s been ups and downs, but the show rolls on as we tip-toe closer to the end of the year. As usual, we’ve amassed a series of news pieces and rumours for your entertainment.

Watch the video above or read on below for all the very latest.

Rooney interest

They enjoyed a good relationship on the international scene and now Sven Goran Eriksson could possibly be reunited with Wayne Rooney at club level.

That’s at least according to the Daily Mail, who say that the striker is being offered an eye-watering £75million to switch allegiances from United to the Chinese Super League.

The breakdown is £25m-a-year for three years, with Eriksson’s Shanghai a viable option.

To make things clear, it’s the league themselves who want Rooney, not any specific club at the moment. John Terry is also on their radar, apparently.

Schweinsteiger ban

In team news, meanwhile, Bastian Schweinsteiger has been handed a three-match ban by the FA for an incident involving Winston Reid this past Saturday.

The German will serve his suspension with immediate effect after accepting a charge of violent conduct. That was for supposedly swinging an elbow into Reid’s throat.

Transfer claim

Lastly - and we’ll apologise in advance for how sceptical this rumour seems - The Times are claiming that United are working on deals for, wait for it… Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Neymar.

The Old Trafford giants have apparently put in ‘considerable groundwork’ in their pursuit of a big-name star. The three in question certainly fit that bill.
