Here’s the latest buzz surrounding Manchester United as they gear up for a challenging clash with West Ham United in the capital.
As Manchester United readies themselves for an away game against West Ham United, the stakes are high, with the Red Devils currently sitting in seventh place, six points adrift from the top four.
The pressure on manager Erik ten Hag has intensified in recent weeks, making a positive outcome imperative to ease the tension around the Dutch coach’s position.
In the midst of the anticipation for the West Ham match, there’s some positive news for United fans. The proposed partial takeover by Jim Ratcliffe seems to be progressing towards completion.

On the transfer front, there’s talk of Manchester United’s interest in Real Sociedad winger Take Kubo.

Reports from Mundo Deportivo suggest that United is eyeing a deal worth £52 million, Kubo’s release clause. However, any potential transfer might have to wait until the summer due to Real Sociedad’s Champions League commitments.
Furthermore, United is reportedly willing to substantially increase Kubo’s wages, making the overall package enticing for the winger.
