Here are some of the latest Manchester United news stories that are currently being discussed in the Twitterverse, blogosphere, cyberspace and media world. We start with a Ronaldo item because why not? Everyone loves reading a story or two about CR7.

-(ESPN FC) Marcus Rashford says he was inspired as a youngster watching Cristiano Ronaldo play for Manchester United.

“When Cristiano Ronaldo came to United, he was the one who everyone looked up to,” Rashford told Inside United.

“The thing that impressed me the most was the fact he was only young when he came into the side and he wanted to be the best player in the side.”

-(CCTV) I appeared as a guest on the CCTV America program “Global Business” where I discussed stadium naming rights. In particular, the conversation turned to why Manchester United turned down the offer to sell out Old Trafford‘s name. Towards the end of the video, we cover United, and why they don’t need revenue from a corporate branded stadium name.

“Corporate sponsorship have become one of the major ways sport clubs around the world generate revenue. But a multi-million dollar deal for the right to name a stadium sometimes produces a name that doesn’t sit well with the fans.

“CCTV America’s Roza Kazan reports.”

-(Daily Mail) Finally, Manager Jose Mourinho doesn’t believe that the English Premier League comes together and supports one another in the UEFA Champions League

Jose Mourinho has won the Champions League twice — with Porto and Inter Milan — and, as Europe’s premier club competition returns on Tuesday, the Manchester United manager sat down with Sportsmail.

He explains why just three clubs in Europe can even dream of winning consecutive Champions Leagues and takes aim at the Premier League over a ‘lack of protection’ for English clubs.
