Man Utd chiefs John Murtough and Darren Fletcher agree on next transfer target


    Manchester United believe that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad can be completed by the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham, according to reports. The Red Devils enjoyed a big-spending summer but received criticism for not signing a new defensive midfielder. 

    Rice was strongly linked with the likes of United and Chelsea in the summer transfer window but a move did not materialise.  

    West Ham reportedly value the 22-year-old at an eye-watering £100million. That price tag was somewhat justified by Rice’s excellent performances for England at Euro 2020.  

    But it also meant that clubs were priced out of a deal for the Three Lions star.  

    Chelsea eventually signed Saul Niguez while United spent the remainder of their summer budget on the sensational return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

    He then collected Paul Pogba’s pass and drove a powerful shot under Woodman.  

    Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard added further goals in a thumping 4-1 win, which maintains United’s unbeaten start to the season. 

    Ronaldo revealed that he was nervous ahead of his debut, despite his vast experience.  

    “I didn’t expect to score two goals. I expect one but not two. I have to appreciate the fans and what they did to me today. I feel so proud for that,” Ronaldo told BBC Sport. 


    “Of course, I am happy to score goals, I am not going to deny that but the most important thing is the team and the team played good. 

    “It is unbelievable. When I started the game I was so nervous, I swear. It is normally because I did not expect that they (fans) would sing my name all game. 

    “I was very nervous but maybe I didn’t show but I was. The reception is incredible but I am here to win games and help the team.  

    “It was unbelievable moment. I was super nervous and was thinking last night that I wanted to play good and show I was still capable of helping the team.”
