The fixtures are coming quick and fast for Manchester United, who will play six matches in 22 days before the first international break and transfer deadline at the end of the month. News came down that Barcelona forward Pedro is on his way to Chelsea for a medical, which ends. United continue to search far and wide for further reinforcements, including placing a bid for Southampton’s Mane.
New signing Memphis Depay showed he’s capable of finding the back of the net, bagging a brace in a 3-1 win over Club Brugge in midweek.
Next up for the Red Devils is Newcastle, who may be adding a forward of their own in the coming hours. If the move is competed, Newcastle will push their summer spending spree close to $80 million.
Manchester United won both fixtures last season and have lost just two of the last 27 meetings. Here’s what you need to know about the match:
