Man Utd news LIVE: Old Trafford could be KNOCKED DOWN, Harry Kane links, Ferdinand’s transfer tips

Good morning Man Utd fans

Ex-liverpool star David James reckons Man United striker Marcus Rashford would do well at Liverpool.

He told GGRecon: “I just think he’s got all the attributes to be a false-nine, through-the-middle player, rather than being stuck out wide.

“I think he could be a valuable asset to Liverpool.”

Meanwhile, Ally McCoist is baffled as to why Man United aren’t pursuing Zinedine Zidane to become their new manager.

He said on talkSPORT: “The one name I haven’t heard anything from is Zidane.”

“Clearly, the one thing he can do and do on a regular basis is win the Champions League. He’s proved that. He did it three times with Real Madrid.

“He can handle big players and big pressure and a big situation at a massive club so I’m not sure why he isn’t in the running at all. Unless he’s ruled himself out?”

Elsewhere, Erik ten Hag will bring a former Manchester United star with him to Old Trafford if he lands the manager’s job.

The Daily Mail believe that the Ajax boss wants a Dutch coach with ‘strong connections to the club’ to join him at United.

The revelation has excited United fans, who are now dreaming of a return to club for either Robin van Persie, Jaap Stam or Ruud van Nistelrooy.

All three candidates went into coaching following their playing careers with Van Persie currently assistant to Arne Slot at Feyenoord.

Van Nistelrooy, meanwhile, has been in charge of PSV Eindhoven’s reserve team, and has recently been linked with the top job at the Philips Stadion.

Finally, Rio Ferdinand has shut down talks of him joining the Manchester United backroom staff by labelling the reports “mad lies”.

Speaking on his YouTube channel FIVE, he said: “I’ve been online and I’m meant to be – I’ve put myself forward – for the assistant manager’s job at Man Utd. I don’t know who gets this mad news.

“When have you pressed the send button and thought that you’re not going to get me to come back and go ‘actually, no I ain’t, what are you chatting about?’

“So whoever has told you that you need to go back to your source and say ‘listen man’.

“But if I did go in there – woo – the whip would be getting cracked! Crack that whip.

“But no, no I’m not, man. I’m not going in there.”
