Former Manchester United and West Ham United midfielder Ravel  Morrison is on trial at newly promoted Premier League club Sheffield United.

Ravel Morrison has not lived up to the early hype from his football career which started at Manchester United.

The 26-year-old midfielder is a free agent after his contract with Ostersunds FC of Sweden ended this summer.

Ravel Morrison was part of the FA Youth Cup winning team at Manchester United in 2011.

Current Manchester United stars Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were also part of the team.

Morrison is expected to join Sheffield United in their pre-season tour of Portugal later this month before club manager Chris Wilder will make a decision on whether to hand him a contract at the club.

Apart from Manchester United and West Ham United, Ravel Morrison has also played for clubs like Queen’s Park Rangers (QPR) and Italian Serie A giants Lazio.

Sheffield United are back amongst the big boys for the first time in over a decade and the target for manager Chris Wilder is to maintain that Premier League status in their first season.

Apart from Ravel Morrison, Sheffield United could also have Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson in their ranks for the new season after his successful loan spell at the club last season.

Manchester United youngster, Mason Greenwood, has broken his silence after signing a new four-year contract with the Red Devils on Friday.

The youngster, who has been with the club since his was six, was awarded a new contract for his brilliant start to his first-team career under Solskjaer this season.

Here is a full script of what he said to the club’s official website after putting pen to paper:

“Having grown up as a Manchester United fan, playing for the first team is a real dream come true. I know that, when I play for this club, I represent the whole Academy and I want to repay the faith that my coaches have shown in me with my performances on
the pitch.

“I am learning all the time from the manager and his coaching staff and I know that this is the perfect club to help me reach my potential.

This will come as good news to all United fans and their manager Solskjaer, who had no option but to run to the player for help when Martial and Rashford were out injured in September.

With two goals in nine matches, it obvious that the youngster is far from being a finished product yet. Nonetheless, he is a great talent United will be happy to nurture into one of the world’s best strikers in the nearest future.

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has played down transfer rumors linking him with a move to the Premier League when the transfer market reopens next year.

This is according to the publication from popular British media outlet TalkSports which revealed that the Croatian international player is not keen to move his family away from his base in Spain.

Real Madrid Close To Signing Paul Pogba

Manchester United could fail to prevent Madrid from luring Paul Pogba to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the January window following Zidane’s ‘personal meeting’ with his countryman during the international break.

The 26-year-old midfielder has been a longtime target for the Real Madrid gaffer but all his efforts to have the player under his watch have been fruitless.

Zidane was close to signing Pogba in the summer following Mino Raiola’s transfer comments on the player’s future at Old Trafford but United were active enough to block every negotiation from materializing.

Loading...

Considering the latest discussion between the two Frenchmen, it won’t be out of place to suggest that Pogba’s days at Old Trafford are numbered and it could come to an abrupt end in January.

He still has two years left on his contract with the Red Devils but could be released by United as long as Solskjaer finds his replacement.

Meanwhile, the World Cup winner won’t be available for selection against Liverpool on Sunday due to an ankle injury which has kept him out of action for several weeks.

Scott mcTominay and —probably — Nemanja Matic could be given the nod to start alongside Juan Mata or Fred at the middle of the pitch.

Danny Drinkwater has returned to full fitness at Burnley following a month out with an ankle problem.

He sustained the injury during an altercation at a nightclub in Manchester last month.

Danny Drinkwater would be hoping to get some playing time with the Clarets after his lean spell at Chelsea before his loan move away from the club this summer.

He was frozen out of the Chelsea team last season under the managerial reign of Italian tactician Maurizio Sarri.

Danny Drinkwater was told by the then Chelsea manager that he’s not part of his plans.

He played just one game for Chelsea throughout last season.

The same thing happened to him when Frank Lampard replaced Maurizio Sarri as the Chelsea manager this summer.

The English midfielder was involved with Chelsea and manager Frank Lampard during preseason before he was told to look for a new club by the newly appointed Blues’ boss.

“… I am 100% sure of the strength of Manchester United. You need momentum in a game and a season and at the moment United don’t have it.

“We respect them as the best Man United we could face and not the Man United people are speaking of during the week.”
