Do you remember the term ‘the choose one?’ In case you’ve forgotten, it was the term used to describe David Moyes during his days as the United manager because he was chosen by Sir Alex Ferguson as his perfect successor.

Just like he did with the former Everton manager some years back, United Legend Alex Ferguson has told the Red Devils hierarchy to sign Aston Villa youngster John McGinn in the winter.

According to the Sun, the legendary manager had earlier told the Old Trafford outfit to move for the player’s services in 2018 but the Glazers reportedly ignored the advice as they wanted a more established striker.

However, the latest rumors now suggest that the Glazers could heed to Fergie’s advice as they believe the youngster has come of age at the Villa Park Stadium.

The report suggested that United will need to cough-out £50m in January if they must convince the newly promoted Premier League side into releasing the striker who has scored three goals in seven Premier League matches this season.

It is very much unlikely to see the Red Devils dispense such a huge fee for a player who hasn’t featured in any top-four club in Europe.

Three-time European champions Manchester United have been linked with a January swoop for Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Leandro Paredes.

According to Argentine media outlet El Intransigente, Leandro Paredes is weighing up his future at PSG amidst the interest from Manchester United and other major European sides.

The Red Devils are not the only ones keen to sign Leandro Paredes with the Italian Serie A duo of Napoli and AC Milan also monitoring his development in the French capital.

Argentine international Paredes is not a stranger to Italian football having represented AS Roma before moving to Zenit St. Petersburg of Russia.

The 24-cap Argentinian national team player signed for PSG from Zenit St. Petersburg in January 2018 and he could leave the French giants after just one year.

The player is said to be unhappy with his lack of playing time at PSG.

Leandro Paredes has been restricted to just four league starts this season in the colours of PSG as manager Thomas Tuchel prefers the duo of Marco Verratti and Idrissa ‘Fans Gueye as his central midfielders.

Paredes has scored three goals in 24 appearances for his country and he could be a useful addition to the Manchester United setup if the Red Devils were able to pull off a move for him.

The ex-Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers player made his prediction on Premier League TV as he said the London Derby game between hosts West Ham and Arsenal at the London Stadium will end in a 1-1 draw.

The two teams start the game in the bottom half of the league table and a draw will be of little use to the two London sides.

He was appointed as the Hammers boss at the start of last season and he led them to a top-ten finish in his first campaign.

West Ham United fans expected the side to build on the performance from last season in this campaign but Pellegrini and his players have not been able to do this.
