Manchester United legend Roy Keane

Roy Keane

Roy Keane is the latest former Manchester United star to have had a go at the team and the manager. The former captain was speaking to Notts TV (h/t Mirror) and claimed there were many “cry babies” in the team.

The Irishman said that there would always be disagreements between players and managers but footballers must perform once they get on the pitch.

Keane was asked if he was referring to Paul Pogba when he spoke about players not giving 100% and said:

“I’m not talking about Pogba. I’m talking about players in general. Players who get upset with a manager or a coaching staff and think ‘I’m not going to train properly because somebody upset me’.

“There’s a lot of cry babies out there.

“When you walk out on that pitch you’re playing for your pride, you’re playing for your family, you’re playing for your city, whatever it might be.

“Don’t get that worried about what the manager’s said about you, or the coaching staff, you get out there and play.”

Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho

The former Sunderland manager wanted more fight from the players and added that they must play with pride, spirit and energy.

United have struggled to perform in recent weeks and couldn’t beat Valencia in the Champions League. That result made it four games without a win for the Red Devils.

There is a lot of pressure on Jose Mourinho to turn things around at Old Trafford and our next clash is against Newcastle.

The 24-year-old who plays for Atletico Madrid has impressed at the Wanda Metropolitano following his move from city rivals Real Madrid.

Llorente has made 17 appearances for Atletico this season , with a majority of them coming off the bench.(h/t Whoscored)

Marcos Llorente

Having started just 3 La Liga matches this season, a loan move to United could be of interest to both parties.

The Red Devils are currently short of players in midfield after the injuries to Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay.

Llorente is an assured passer of the ball and can play in central midfield in both a defensive and a holding role.

He is also an aggressive ball winner and will add much-needed energy in the United midfield. At 6 feet tall, Llorente is also an imposing presence who can deal with the physical aspect of the Premier League.

The 34-year-old will undergo a medical on Friday prior to signing an 18-month deal with the Italian giants.

Antonio Conte has been a long term admirer of Young and even tried to sign him when he was at Chelsea. United were initially reluctant to sanction the player’s move in the middle of the season.

With the player keen on the switch and the prospect of losing him on a free in the summer seem to have convinced the United hierarchy to cash in on the veteran in the January transfer window.

Young joined United in the summer of 2011 and has gone on to make 261 appearances for the English giants.

The veteran, who started off as a winger has predominantly played at full-back for United the previous few seasons.

He took over as captain from Antonio Valencia at the beginning of this season

It’s claimed that Fernandes has been offered a deal nearing £100,000-a-week at United.

The signing of the Sporting skipper should provide the United midfield with numbers and an attacking impetus.

The midfielder has an £85million release clause in his contract but Old Trafford bosses have been working to drive the price down. The club were also open to offering two players to bring the price down. (h/t Sun)

Fernandes was part of the Portuguese squad that won the UEFA Nations League in 2019.

He has won 19 caps for the Portuguese national side and has scored 2 goals since making his debut in 2017.

The Portuguese midfielder is also keen on a move to Old Trafford with a fee of £60m being touted. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and assistant, Mike Phelan, watched Fernandes play against FC Porto on 5th January.

Midfield is a position where United are thin in numbers. Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini weren’t replaced and the likes of Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba are out injured.
