Football News

Manchester United faithful, hello and welcome.

As per usual we’ve been busy spending our morning trawling the deepest recesses of the web in order to get you the latest news on your beloved club.

We’ve put that news into an aesthetically-pleasing round-up, equipped with a video if you can’t be bothered to read. Enjoy.

Perez likes interest

Word on the grapevine has been that Manchester United are interested in signing Ayoze Perez and those words have reached the Newcastle United star’s ears.

The forward told IBTimes that it was a great pleasure to be linked with the Red Devils, describing it as both incredible and something very big.

"I just know the same as you. What I hear, what I read... It is a great pleasure for me [to be linked Manchester United and Tottenham]. It is incredible, something very big and that's because I'm doing well but I must go on. It's my job," Perez said.

"You never know. Football takes many turns. Today in fact I am a substitute [at Newcastle]. I am working hard to be in the manager's starting plans. That's all I think: to work. Then the fruits arrive. I am very happy at Newcastle. They gave me everything, they made me professional. I want to continue working with them, trying to climb on the table and then whatever have to happens will happen."

It’s worth remembering that Perez’s career is still in its early stages, and we’re far from suggesting that the deal is definitely going to happen, but it would appear the player could be open to said switch.

What do fans think about that? Let us know in the box provided.

Ferdinand concerns

Moving on, Rio Ferdinand has expressed concerns over Louis van Gaal’s regime, hinting that either Pep Guardiola or Carlo Ancelotti would be a better fit.

The former defender said the next few months were crucial as United’s bid to finish in the top four reaches its culmination. If they don’t qualify for the Champions League, there are sure to be problems.

Hernandez form at Bayer

Lastly, Javier Hernandez has been giving Louis van Gaal all the more reason to regret selling him this summer - the Telegraph say he's outperforming the whole of the United squad.

The Mexican bagged a 13-minute hat-trick at the weekend during Leverkusen's 5-0 stroll over Borussia Monchengladbach - he's scored more goals in his last 12 outings for Bayer than United have scored as a team.

How Van Gaal could use him now.

Hernandez is certainly doing well in Germany:
