MORNING, UNITED FANS
Eight frustrated United players feel ‘misled’ over their lack of first-team chances and Zinedine Zidane is being talked up as the next Old Trafford boss.
And if that’s not dramatic enough gossip, it’s also suggested Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane would be happy to big up their ex-Real Madrid boss ZZ for the job.
The Telegraph claim Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard, Dean Henderson, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles, Diogo Dalot, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial have all expected more game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
And Solskjaer is understood to have admitted he could have given star names like Bruno Fernandes more rest time.
Lingard has repeatedly been linked with a move to former loan club West Ham.
And now some reports indicate fellow midfielder Van de Beek has had enough of his own bit-part role.
Wolves, Newcastle and Everton are the latest clubs mentioned over VDB, including for a possible January loan move.
It’s also alleged in some quarters Old Trafford legend Ronaldo and centre-back Varane would be keen on Zidane taking over.
That’s if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sacked, which would surely be a big step closer if Watford inflict United’s seventh defeat in 13 games in the Premier League this Saturday.
Finally, Red Devils’ skipper Harry Maguire opened England’s 10-0 win in San Marino last night with a soaring, scoring header, just like he did in Friday’s 5-0 Wembley triumph over Albania.
