Firstly, there’s a blast from the past as United legend Cristiano Ronaldo is talked up for a potential Old Trafford return.

Guillem Balague has discussed the prospect of this move, saying: “Interestingly I was told by a director of football of a top club in Europe: ‘How about if Manchester United decide to go for him?’

“And I said: ‘No, that cannot be possible, they actually are putting the money somewhere else, they are looking for a different type of player’.

“But he told me: ‘I wouldn’t be surprised’.”

Another Portuguese talent being linked with MUFC is Benfica defender Ruben Neves, with Don Balon claiming the club have opened talks over a potential £87million deal.

The 22-year-old is a top defensive talent with a big future ahead of him, and he’s also been linked with the likes of Manchester City and Barcelona.

Finally, there’s a bit of a blow for United as Leicester City playmaker James Maddison told a Foxes fan he’d be staying at the King Power Stadium.
