Saturday’s biggest Man United news and transfer rumour gossip.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal believes strikers only need nine touches of the ball in a match to be able to find the net, the Metro reports.
United have found the net 15 times in the Premier League so far this season, the fewest scored by any team in the current top six.
Wilfried Zaha has opened up on his troubled spell at Manchester United, the Daily Express reports.
And ahead of United’s visit to Palace this afternoon (3pm), Zaha has set the record straight on some of the rumours that dogged his time in Manchester.
Gareth Bale’s representatives told Real Madrid that he would join Manchester United if he wasn’t deployed in a central role, according to the Metro.
Bale has repeatedly been linked with a move back to the Premier League, with United being the supposed suitors amid claims that he and Cristiano Ronaldo endure a rocky relationship at the club.
Louis van Gaal has told Paul Scholes to shut it and insists his criticism means nothing to him, the Daily Star reports.
Scholes launched a scathing attack on Van Gaal’s team this week, saying his old club are boring in the wake of their shock Capital One Cup exit to Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
