With the addition of Jadon Sancho and the increasing likelihood that Anthony Martial will be staying put, a lot of questions have been posed about the shape of the Manchester United attack this season. Who is in and who is out in a final third that seems pretty crowded?

One guy who won’t be around, at least until October, is Marcus Rashford who is set to face about 12 weeks on the sideline once he undergoes shoulder surgery later this month, according to the PA news agency.

Jadon Sancho Undergoes Medical for Manchester United

The Jadon Sancho transfer was announced, at the end of last month/beginning of this month by both Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United. However, we’re still awaiting the official “product launch” of the 21-year-old English winger, and that should be coming any day now.

As the deal could not be finalized until after England’s Euro 2020 campaign concluded, he only underwent his United medical today, as he drew closer to completing his £73m move from BVB.

Harry Maguire Makes Euro 2020 Best XI, Luke Shaw Snubbed

Harry Maguire was the only Manchester United player to make the Euro 2020 best XI team as his teammate for both club and country, Luke Shaw, was left out. There were additional snubs, as you would always expect with these kinds of honors, and England/Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is certainly another.

The two tournament finalists, Italy (5) and England (3) combined to dominate the list, as one would expect. Four more Premier League stars joined Maguire on the All-Euro team, meaning we had five footballers from the English top flight in the team.

Manchester United Transfer Talk: Raphael Varane, Alex Telles

Manchester United have landed their top transfer target this summer transfer window, and are now moving closer to landing their second big signing of the summer in Real Madrid central defender Raphael Varane. The Manchester Evening News reports that the 28-year-old France international is close to agreeing on personal terms.

Varane has been linked to Old Trafford since the beginning of the silly season, and there is now strong hopes that the deal can be wrapped up within the next few weeks. With Varane’s current deal at the Bernabeu set to expire next year, it is thought that he could be obtained at a fairly favorable price.

Marcus Rashford Mural Vandalized After England Loses Euro 2020 Final

Sadly, the absolute worst of the worst that society has to offer came out in full force last night after England suffered defeat at the hands of Italy in the Euro 2020 final. The people racially abusing Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho simply because they missed some penalty kicks right now are not football supporters, and they never have been.

They are deplorables, plain and simple, and there was never anything “supportive” about them. In Manchester, a mural was painted to honor Rashford and the efforts he made to lobby the government into feeding needy and hungry schoolchildren. Now that mural has been defaced with offensive graffiti.

Man United News and Notes: Shaw, Maguire, Rashford, Sancho

Well, it turns out, actually, it’s not coming home. Instead it’s coming to Rome, as Italy defeated England in a penalty shootout 3-2 (1-1 AET) today to claim the Euro 2020 title.

Manchester United Transfer Talk: Paul Pogba, Harry Kane, Jesse Lingard

The silly season is in full swing and Manchester United have already made their first big splash signing this summer in Jadon Sancho. Now most of the transfer talk surrounds Paul Pogba, whose future remains quite uncertain. According to French outlet TF1, Pogba will soon come to a decision over his future.

The Manchester Evening News has picked up on the report from Pogba’s native land, citing that a decision will come this week. Pogba has been consistently linked with a move away during much of his second stint and Old Trafford, so it’ll be good, either way, to get some closure on this situation.
