Manchester United have to face arch rivals Liverpool in their Premier League encounter this weekend without two of their first team players due to injury. The Red Devils will have to navigate the game without French defender Raphael Varane and Brazilian international Fred.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is delighted after Marcus Rashford committed his future to the club on a long-term deal. The England international had been in a contract standoff with the side over the past year but the club have eventually sealed a four-year deal with the option for a further 12 months.
Shortly after Rashford penned the renewal, Solskjaer said: “Marcus is one of the most talented English players of his generation. He is an outstanding player; blessed with natural pace and energy. Marcus is a shining example of the talent that our Academy produces and his upbringing means that he truly understands what it means to play for Manchester United. “Despite being only 21 years old, Marcus already has great experience. He has a fantastic future ahead of him with the club and I am delighted that he has signed a new contract.”
Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas believes Alexis Sanchez should head through the Manchester United exit door in the summer after failing to adapt to the club’s style of play. The Chile international made the switch to the Red Devils from Arsenal during the 2018 winter transfer window whereby Henrikh Mkhitaryan headed in the opposite direction.
Since then, the attacker has barely impressed in the United shirt and the current season has witnessed him struggled for regular gametime. Speaking on Sky Sports, Nicholas said that Sanchez’s stint with United has been a shocker and the Chilean could be offloaded from the club’s ranks by the end of the campaign.
