Good morning Man Utd fans

Manchester United meet Burnley in the Carabao Cup Last 16 tonight.

United manager Erik ten Hag will be without Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane as they face off in the 2022 World Cup final on Sunday.

Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford are under surveillance after returning from World Cup duty with England just last week.

Diogo Dalot may not feature after suffering an injury in Portugal’s last game against Morocco in the quarter-finals of the competition.

Meanwhile, Burnley manager Vincent Kompany will be without Scott Twine, who sustained an injury when he came on as a late substitute against Middlesbrough.

Connor Roberts was sent off against Boro and is suspended against the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, United are locked in a bidding war with Chelsea and Liverpool to sign Chicago Fire prodigy Jhon Duran.

Duran, 19, has turned many faces in Chicago with eight goals and six assists in 30 games.

Benfica are also hoping to sign the centre-forward in a deal worth up to £9million.

The Colombia international has also won three caps with his national team.

And United have joined Arsenal and Tottenham in the bidding war for Borussia Mönchengladbach star Marcus Thuram.

According to Bild, Gladbach is preparing for the loss of 25-year-old Thuram and is already looking for potential substitutes in the January transfer window.

United consider the striker a potential replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left during the World Cup.

The Red Devils are believed to be unsure about spending big bucks on Ronaldo’s replacement next month – with a loan move seen as a good possibility.

Finally, United co-owner Avram Glazer held talks with potential investors from Saudi Arabia and Qatar during a recent trip to Doha.

The Glazer family announced their intention to seek new investors for the club last month, following a series of protests from fans.

According to The Athletic, co-owner Avram has spoken to candidates from across the Middle East.

Raine Group – the Red Devils’ financial advisors – are aiming for a full sale by the end of the first quarter of 2023, with the club expected to cost between £6bn and £7bn.

But Avram has insisted negotiations are progressing well.

He told The Athletic: “It’s not necessarily a sale, it’s a process and we’re moving forward with the process so we’ll see what happens.

“This is the update, it is the process and the process continues”
