MORNING, UNITED FANS
Bruno Fernandes faces a fight to be fit for tomorrow’s huge home clash with Liverpool.
And that comes as boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rates the Red Devils as still way behind Liverpool AND Manchester City.
Fernandes arguably remains United’s main man, despite Cristinao Ronaldo’s return.
In contrast, Donny van de Beek is reportedly so frustrated with his bit-part role that he hopes his agent can set up a move to Real Madrid in January.
Newcastle and Everton have already been strongly linked with the Holland midfielder.
Fernandes, meanwhile, has left United sweating after taking a knock in Wednesday’s 3-2 comeback win over Atalanta.
It’s even been suggested that, if the Portugal hero misses out tomorrow, Solskjaer will consider pairing Ronaldo, 36, with 34-year-old Edinson Cavani up front.
Solskjaer, though, was focused on the longer term when he said: “Liverpool are one of the teams we are trying to catch up on.
“We know we still have to improve to get up to the level of their last four years.
“They’re one of the teams we’re chasing. What they’ve done the last four years is what we’re striving towards and go past them.”
