Man Utd battling with rivals for Christian Pulisic

Manchester United are monitoring the situation of Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic as manager Jose Mourinho ponders a move for the American in the summer, according to a report on the Daily Mail.

Pulisic has made a name for himself in the German Bundesliga by putting in some phenomenal performances which have seen his value increase drastically.

United are willing to challenge fellow Premier League club Liverpool for the youngster as well as Bayern Munich, who are also interested in securing his services.

If United are to submit an offer, it is likely to be in the region of £40m but Dortmund are keen to keep hold of the 19-year-old.

However, with the signing of Alexis Sanchez, United have incredible depth in attack so it may be difficult to fit Pulisic into the team. Pulisic currently has a contract with Dortmund until 2020 and the German club are eager to get him to extend his deal.

Pulisic has played 81 times for the German club and has managed to find the back of the net 11 times. He is well-known for his ball control and dribbling, as well as his lightning pace on the counter-attack.

Should United submit a bid for him?

Paul Scholes: Manchester United are a defending team

Former Manchester united midfielder Paul Scholes does not believe that his old club have enough quality up front to be a big force in European football this season. He thinks that Manchester united are just a defending team with no real attacking threat.

Ex-Manchester united star Paul Scholes has already expressed his opinion on the current team and United boss, Louis van Gaal, a few days ago. But he spoke again when United managed to secure only one point in the UEFA Champions league group stage match against PSV Eindhoven this week.

Paul Scholes has criticized Manchester united for their performance in the 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven. Scholes told BT sport Europe, “There’s a real lack of quality in the final third.” He added, “You can defend as well as you want but if you don’t have the forward players who can create a bit of magic now and again then I think you’re going to struggle and you have to win your home games in Europe.”

By saying this he has questioned Manchester united forwards’ ability and intentions. He compared Anthony martial with Michael Owen and Lineker and also commented that martial just likes to drift to the left wing instead of looking for goals.

Paul Scholes compared the red devils with two giants in European Football. He said, “You look at these teams across Europe, your Barcas and your Bayerns. It’s your forwards that make the difference.”

After the PSV Eindhoven draw, Manchester united stands second in group B of the UEFA Champions League group stage. United must secure three points in final away game vs Wolfsburg to qualify for the last 16, depending on the result in the other match between CSKA and PSV.

The former Red devils midfielder has a lot of criticism for united players as well as coach. Many fans will believe he has earned the right to say anything about this club, as they know he will mean well. But what do you have to say on his comments? Do you agree with Paul Scholes that we should look for another striker this January? Do you think we are strong enough to achieve trophies with this squad? Have your say and let us know your opinions in the comments below.

Robben to be rescued by United?

Arjen Robben has fallen out with team mate Robert Lewandowski after comments made by the striker.

Arjen Robben has recently returned from a torn stomach muscle injury and has taken no time to get back to his best after scoring twice in Holland’s 3-2 victory over Wales.

However, the Bayern Munich winger has not reacted positively to comments made by team mate Robert Lewandowski. The Polish goal machine has said that Robben is too greedy with the ball and instead prefers to play alongside Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman.

The spat between the pair has alerted Manchester United who are looking to add a winger to the squad in January. United already have Memphis, Lingard and Januzaj (currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund) but the boss wants proven talent and Robben believes he can still play at the highest level for at least another 2-3 years.

Arjen Robben was close to joining Manchester United back in 2004 after receiving a tour of the club, but United refused to meet PSV’s asking price so Robben ended up signing for Chelsea.

How do you feel about the possibility of Robben joining United? It has also been reported many times that United are interested in Lewandowski. Which of the two would you prefer? Discuss below in the comment section or visit our fan forum and join the discussion here.
