Good morning, United fans
United visit bottom team Burnley tonight with manager Ralf Rangnick denying a summer change is needed.
West Ham’s Declan Rice, plus Borussia Dortmund duo Erling Haaland and Jude Bellingham, remain on the Reds’ radar after a quiet January transfer window.
But despite having to leave the FA Cup for Middlesbrough on Friday, Rangnick insists United are making enough progress to show there is NO need for an overhaul of the players.
He said: “I don’t think so. Overall, the development of the team and our performance over the past few weeks has improved. By the way, that includes the cup game.”

And Rangnick revealed ‘top experts’ Jesse Lingard and Edinson Cavani will be on the squad.
The duo missed Boro’s incident after United blocked midfielder Lingard’s exit on the final day and striker Cavani was given extra time to recuperate for Uruguay duties.
Lingard hit back at United claiming he needed a break but Rangnick appealed to his players to address any issues he faces, not on social media.
“It is always better,” he said. I have never read or communicated using those social media accounts.
“I don’t exist there and won’t have time to do that, so it’s always better and I always speak directly to the players.”
Finally, the CIES Football Observatory has released figures showing United have suffered their biggest transfer loss in Prem over the past 10 years, £78m more than their neighbour, City.
