Luke Shaw, Manchester United’s first choice left back and the team’s player of the season two years ago, has called on his club to reinforce the roster. He joined manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in lamenting the lack of squad depth after a very surprising home loss to Crystal Palace yesterday.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Crystal Palace

Up to 11 players are a doubt for Manchester United in their season opener on Saturday against Crystal Palace. There are of course different degrees as to how likely each of these players are to miss out on the curtain raiser, and we only have one confirmed absentee.

Typically, the start of the new season brings optimism, especially so when your last completed season displayed a significant amount of forward progress. Not so much with Manchester United, as they have had a summer that’s seen lots of off-the-pitch issues, some struggles with COVID-19 and an abysmal transfer window.

Manchester United Transfer Talk: Jack Grealish, Gareth Bale

Five days until the 20/21 Premier League season kicks off for Manchester United have still only signed one player this entire summer transfer window. So what is the major malfunction here?

“Spend a mil no sweat, water my lawn with Moet,” Dr. Dre famously rapped in his late ’90s rap single “Been There, Done That.” When talking big money, and I mean huge money, citing hip-hop lyrics is always in order.

Today saw Forbes release their list of the ten highest paid footballers in the world, and as you would expect, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were one and two. Manchester United were one of three clubs to land two players in the top ten (Paris Saint-Germain and FC Barcelona were the other two). Midfielder Paul Pogba placed sixth and Goalkeeper David de Gea tenth.
