    Greenwood saga continues

    Manchester United have just days to find a new club for Mason Greenwood or face losing millions.

    The 21-year-old must be sold or loaned out by Friday before the transfer window closes at 11pm.

    If United miss the cut-off, they face paying the £75,000-a-week striker around £8 million to cut his contract.

    Greenwood "mutually agreed" to leave United on August 21 following his arrest for attempted rape and sexual assault.

    He was charged in October but all charges were dropped in February by the Crown Prosecution Service.

    If United agree to cancel Greenwood's contract before the transfer window closes, he will be able to move to any club in any league.

    United consider shock Hojbjerg swoop

    Erik ten Hag is looking for midfield reinforcements and Hojbjerg is understood to be on his list.

    According to The Telegraph, United are keen on signing Hojbjerg from Tottenham and the North London club have offered them the chance to open talks.

    But the deal collapsed after Hojbjerg was unable to agree personal terms with the Spaniards.

    Now it's Ten Hag who is after the 28-year-old as he looks to add depth to his midfield which has already taken a hit through the injury of Mason Mount.

    Ten Hag adds two left backs to transfer shortlist

    Man Utd are so desperate for a short-term loan deal to cover the injury of Luke Shaw they have reportedly added a FIFTH and SIXTH option to their transfer shortlist.

    According to the Daily Mail, Erik ten Hag is said to be looking to bring in a short-term replacement for Shaw's absence and a reunion with Lyon's Nicolas Tagliafico is on the cards.

    The left-back was previously considered by United's scouting team as he used to play under Ten Hag at Ajax.

    Meanwhile, the Metro confirmed Roma's Leonardo Spinazolla as a potential target for the Red Devils.

    Spinazzola has been a key part of the Italian side since 2019, but Roma boss Jose Mourinho is unlikely to sanction his departure as the Serie A team have had a poor start to the season.

    Man Utd loanee suffers horror start

    Brandon Williams' horror start to his career at Ipswich Town has continued into the Carabao Cup.

    The on-loan Manchester United defender made a key error on his debut as the Tractor Boys lost to Leeds.

    Williams, 22, was out-paced by Luis Sinisterra as the winger was able to get away from him and score the Yorkshire side's fourth of the match.

    And he followed up that error with another big mistake as Ipswich took on Reading in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

    Williams put through his own goal just two minutes after kick-off after a cross bounced off him.

    And fans could not help but make a joke at the defender's expense on social media.

    Many of them had a laugh that Williams had gone "undercover" as he used to play for local rivals Norwich City.
