Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley, who moved to Aston Villa on a season-long loan, has been enjoying a regular spell of first-team action in the last few weeks. This coupled with support from the fans has improved his morale significantly. He has been playing much better for Villa than he did for United last season. The England international was subjected to heavy criticism from his own supporters at United, while he felt that he was vindicated for the performances of the team as a whole. He is widely expected to make the move to Villa permanent with his contract at United set to expire in the summer.
The possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United has once again occupied the back pages over the last few weeks. This is after the Spanish club made a very poor start to the league campaign by suffering two defeats in the opening three matches. Those defeats have raised questions about Madrid’s decision to sell Angel di Maria and Xabi Alonso just a few weeks before the start of the season. Ronaldo is thought to have questioned president Florentino Perez over this issue and it has sparked rumours that he will finally decide to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.
Manchester United has planned to place a huge bid of over 40 million Pounds to Juventus for the Chilean playmaker Arturo Vidal.
Actually, there were reports that the Red Devils have already reached an agreement with Vidal about the weekly wages and now, it’s all up to Juventus to decide if they want to accept the bid or not.
But, it’s made clear from United’s side that there has been no agreement with the player.
One thing that United would want to be absolutely sure about in Vidal’s case is that he doesn’t carry any injury issues to the club.
Manchester United have once again proved that their standing in the game has not diminished despite a very poor campaign last season. United finished seventh in the table last season and will be without any form of European football this campaign. Despite this, they have managed to sign a record-breaking sponsorship deal with Adidas. The German sportswear giant will be taking over as the new kit supplier for United after Nike decided to drop out in the last few weeks.
