The new season has presented a series of trials for Manchester United, and the team is earnestly looking for signs of improvement following the international hiatus.

A disheartening tally of six defeats across various competitions has left them languishing in the tenth position in the Premier League, accompanied by the ignominy of occupying the bottom spot in their Champions League group.

In the lead-up to the break, Erik ten Hag’s squad endured a double setback, suffering consecutive losses to Crystal Palace and Galatasaray.

Only a dramatic, stoppage-time double from Scott McTominay salvaged a comeback victory against Brentford.

The next encounter on their schedule is set for October 21, with Manchester United journeying to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United, who currently find themselves at the league’s basement.

Bearing all of this in mind, here are the latest developments unfolding at Old Trafford…

Criticism for Varane
Tim Sherwood, while discussing Manchester United’s performance, didn’t mince words about Raphael Varane, who has represented the club for two seasons since arriving from Real Madrid.

Sherwood expressed his candid opinion on Premier League Productions, asserting that Varane has not made a significant impact during his time at the club.

He compared the situation to the scrutiny faced by other players like Bukayo Saka, highlighting the inconsistency in Varane’s presence.

The French defender’s recurrent injuries have raised questions about his durability and what he has contributed to Manchester United, according to Sherwood.

He suggested that there are other players at the club who are also not performing up to par, despite the criticism typically directed at Harry Maguire.

The Story Behind Onana’s Transfer
The struggles faced by Andre Onana following his summer transfer to Manchester United as David de Gea’s replacement have not gone unnoticed.

A recent report by ESPN sheds light on why the Red Devils chose Onana over two other potential candidates.

The report reveals that United had their sights set on both David Raya and Diogo Costa before ultimately securing Onana’s services in a £47 million deal from Inter Milan.

David Raya, however, chose to join Arsenal from Brentford, while Diogo Costa continues to ply his trade at Porto.

According to the report, Onana’s charismatic personality and his impressive performance with Inter Milan during their journey to last season’s Champions League final were key factors influencing Manchester United’s decision.

The 27-year-old’s character evidently set him apart from the other available options.
