Manchester United receive blow in hunt for top target, German giant interested in Haaland, and more
The Premier League is back this weekend, and there are some top games to look forward to. Manchester United will make their way to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United, whilst Liverpool will travel to London to face Crystal Palace.
Manchester United have recently seemed confident that they will be able to land Leicester City star and recent England debutant James Maddison in January.
However, according to The Sun, Maddison may dash their hopes by signing a new contract at Leicester City.
Maddison has been in fantastic form this season, already scoring decisive winners against both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
Manchester United will apparently suffer another blow in the January window as RB Leipzig are reportedly going to rival them in a bid to sign Erling Haaland.
The young Norwegian is one of the hottest strikers in the world right now and Manchester United have repeatedly been linked with a move for him.
