As a result, United have been linked to a host of strikers like Joshua Zirkzee and Benjamin Sesko. However, the club’s interest in…

2 Gary Neville has labelled Bastian Schweinsteiger’s treatment at Manchester United as “illegal” and blasted Jose Mourinho for his role in the German’s last few months at Old Trafford.
