The “Red Devils” could only play a draw against Everton before the start of the international break. However, the protégés of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are only two points behind the leading champion Chelsea after seven games.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo wants United to sign a former Juventus teammate. Elsewhere, the Red Devils have identified the Spanish midfielder, who plays for Napoli, as an ideal replacement for Paul Pogba.
In this regard, here is the key Manchester United story transfer from October 9, 2021.
Cristiano Ronaldo wants Federico Chies at Manchester United
Cristiano Ronaldo has asked Manchester United to sign Federico Chies of Juventus, according to Sportbible via Calciomercato. The Portuguese shared the pitch with Chiesa during their stay in Turin and believe Chiesa would be a good addition to the Red Devils attack.
Manchester United are spoiled by the election in the last third of the field. The already impressive attack this summer was further strengthened by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jason Sancho.
While the Portuguese revived in the Premier League like a fish in water, Sancho’s integration into English football was quieter. Still, Premier League giants have like Bruno Fernandez, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard you can count on.
Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford will soon be back from injury, while Anthony Elanga and Amad Diallo are also knocking on the door. As such, Manchester United may not be too eager to break the bank for Chies, despite Ronaldo’s insistence. Maybe it would be better to advise the Red Devils to spend that money on a defensive midfielder instead.
The Red Devils identify Fabian Ruiz as a replacement for Paul Pogba
The Frenchman is in the last year of his contract with the Red Devils. Talks on an extension have yet to yield positive results as Pogba continues to flirt with the idea of leaving Old Trafford.
United prepares contingency plans and believes Ruiz has all the qualities to fulfill Pogba’s shoes. The Spaniard has become the heart of Napoli in recent seasons. Ruiz has done wonders in the 4-3-3 system that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to implement at Old Trafford.
Newcastle United inquires about Anthony Martial
Newcastle United inquired about the availability of Anthony Martial, according to Stretty News.
The Frenchman has fallen in the ranks of Manchester United since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Martial’s career stalled due to severe injuries and inconsistent form.
Solskjaer publicly supported Martial, but the Red Devils could run out of patience with the Frenchman. Newcastle is ready to take him to St. Louis Park in January. James.
