Manchester United are preparing to welcome Sheriff to Old Trafford on Thursday (October 27) in the UEFA Europa League. Erik ten Hag’s team will be eager to get back to winning ways after the weekend’s draw against Chelsea in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, acclaimed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation at Old Trafford. Elsewhere, Romano has also added that the Red Devils are not in talks to sign a Bayer Leverkusen forward.
On that note, here’s a look at the key Manchester United transfer stories as on October 26, 2022:
Fabrizio Romano has said that Erik ten Hag and Cristiano Ronaldo have patched up after the recent saga at Manchester United. The Portuguese was omitted from the squad that travelled to Chelsea after refusing to come off the bench against Tottenham Hotspur in the previous game.
In his column for Caught Offside, Romano said that Ronaldo had positive talks with Ten Hag and is now back in contention to play again.
Romano also added that finding a new club in January might not be easy for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Ronaldo has appeared 11 times for the Red Devils this season across competitions, including six starts, but has scored just twice.
Manchester United are not in talks to sign Patrik Schick, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Czech Republic international was a revelation for Bayer Leverkusen last season but has struggled to replicate those heights this campaign. The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the 26-year-old, and recent reports have claimed that they could turn to him to solve their striker conundrum.
However, in his column for Caught Offside, Romano said that the Premier League giants are not in contact with the player’s entourage at the moment.
Schick has scored three goals in 15 appearances across competitions this season.
Manchester United are close to appointing Michael Edwards as their new sporting director, according to Football Insider. The former Liverpool man is taking a break from the game after leaving his job at Anfield this summer. However, the Red Devils have managed to turn his head with a highly lucrative offer.
Edwards was the man behind Liverpool’s immensely successful run in the transfer market under manager Jurgen Klopp. Chelsea were also interested in him this summer but failed in their endeavours to take him to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have now moved on to alternate targets, leaving the door open for Manchester United to snap up Edwards. The Red Devils are hoping Edwards can work wonders at Old Trafford as well.
