Ten Hag shares team news
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed Andre Onana will be involved for the Reds against Wigan Athletic in the Emirates FA Cup on Monday.
The Cameroon international was recently called up to his nation’s squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, with on-loan midfielder Sofyan Amrabat also being selected for Morocco.
Ten Hag said: “So, we’re talking with [the] Cameroon Federation. It was an issue during the talks with Andre when he came in here, and it’s constructive, so we will see.
“I don’t know yet [if he will be with us for the Tottenham game on 14 January] but he will be there for the game against Wigan.
“I think we will have, more or less, the same squad as against Nottingham Forest”
United close to first January signing
Manchester United are close to making Bayern Munich star Eric Choupo-Moting their first signing of the Sir Jim Ratcliffe era.
According to Bild, the striker is set to join on loan until the end of the season.
Choupo-Moting has scored two goals in the Bundesliga this term and most of his minutes have come off the bench.
United to bid for striker
Manchester United are ready to activate the release clause of Stuttgart striker Guirassy this month.
The fee is believed to be worth £15.1million so he could prove to be a cheap option.
Guirassy has been in fine form this season 17 goals in just 14 Bundesliga games.
PSG want Man Utd target
Paris Saint-Germain are looking set to be one of the clubs in the race for the transfer of Lille wonderkid Leny Yoro this summer, according to French football expert Jonathan Johnson.
Speaking exclusively to CaughtOffside for his Daily Briefing column, Johnson made it clear how exciting a talent Yoro is, and that he expected there would likely be a lot of demand for the 18-year-old defender this summer.
Johnson acknowledged links with top Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United, whilst also revealing that PSG like the player a lot as well.
United target Chelsea flop
Manchester United are considering a shock move for former Chelsea forward Timo Werner, according to The Mirror.
The Germany international had mixed success at Chelsea, whom he left to rejoin RB Leipzig in the summer of 2022.
Werner has only scored two goals in 14 appearances in all competitions this term, but United still think he could do a job in Manchester.
United explain Reguilon loan ending
Manchester United have revealed why they cut short Sergio Reguilon’s loan from Tottenham.
He played just 12 games for Erik ten Hag’s men and made little impact at Old Trafford.
And with Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia set to return soon from their respective injuries, they do not feel Reguilon would be given sufficient game time during the second half of the campaign.
A club statement read: “Sergio fulfilled the role he was brought in for: to provide cover for Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia while both were out with long-term injuries.
“While Luke has missed the past two games with a minor injury, the England international is expected back soon. Tyrell, meanwhile, is getting closer to a return from his knee injury.
“The versatile Diogo Dalot can also provide further cover at left-back.
“With fewer games in the second half of the season and injured players returning, there will be less opportunity for Sergio to play.
“It was decided it was in the best interests of all parties for Reguilon to return to Spurs.”
