Erik ten Hag doesn’t do weakened teams and 5 World Cup team members started on Wednesday against Burnley. Raphael Varane might be available and Diogo Dalot recuperating from a hamstring strain, most of the United XI can have players who have already spent time in Qatar.
Antony hasn’t started in the Premier League as the draw on 22nd October with Chelsea and the ineffectual performance of Alejandro Garnacho against Burnley is an excuse for recalling the Brazilian. Regardless of his weight, Kalvin Phillips has been amazed that Manchester City has signed him after the wear and tear he had incurred. Ten Hags gave Manchester United the green light to discuss a potential move for Phillips but they ended up with Casemiro, the best-in-class.
The wait for new Manchester United defender Raphael Varane to be unveiled as. Red Devil has finally been over after the player walked onto the Old Trafford pitch to greet the 75,000 fans that were in attendance on Saturday afternoon before the game between the Red Devils and Leeds United kicked off. United fans had been waiting and had even lost their patience as they kept asking the club when their newest player would be unveiled. However, after he was unveiled to the Old Trafford faithful just before lunch kick-off on Saturday, tensions have now cooled off and the fact that he is now finally a Manchester United player has cooled the impatience of the fans.
After it was confirmed that United and Real Madrid had reached a gentleman’s agreement for the transfer of the defender to the English Premier League giants, there were a couple of factors that caused a delay in the player getting unveiled. The factors include the fact that he had to first go into quarantine after traveling to England and secondly he encountered passport issues that also needed to be resolved as soon as possible before any further arrangement could be made.
