Ralf Rangnick confirms Man United injury boost against Norwich City but trio ruled out

Published

on

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has revealed that Edinson Cavani could make his injury comeback against Norwich City this evening.

The Uruguay international aggravated a tendon injury last month that saw him miss the World Cup qualifiers with his national team.

The 34-year-old has since been on the sidelines, but Rangnick has said that he could make the matchday squad against the Canaries.

He told Manutd.com: “The only possible candidate might be Edi [Cavani]. We have to wait and see.”

“He was training with the team yesterday and a couple of days before that so we have to wait and see how he feels today.”

Rangnick added that the game will come too early for Raphael Varane (fitness) and Anthony Martial (knee), but they are likely to return soon.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (knee) and Nemanja Matic (flu) are doubtful for the clash, but Paul Pogba has been ruled out for four weeks.

The Frenchman sustained a thigh injury while training with the national side last month. Rangnick hinted that he may not return until January.

United have recently built momentum with back-to-back league wins, and they will be favourites to secure maximum points against the Canaries this evening.

Rangnick may lean towards the starting XI from the Crystal Palace win. Mason Greenwood could a candidate to start after producing a stand-out display in the Champions League draw against Young Boys.

It has been an injury disrupted season for the Red Devils, but Rangnick could have a potentially fully-fit squad to choose from during the back end of the campaign.

Cavani is unlikely to make the starting line-up today, but the Uruguayan should be a handy option off the bench with his aerial presence and goalscoring threat.

Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo excelled together up front in the 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur back in October. Rangnick could be tempted to try out the combination at some point.

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
