Let’s see some of the news about the Manchester United football club.
Erik Ten Hag sympathizes with injury-plagued Anthony Martial
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, expressed sympathy for Antony Martial after his most recent injury setback (via The Athletic).
The unfortunate United forward’s sad truth was brought to light by journalist Anka.
Martial lacked the attitude to produce consistently for the whole of his United tenure, despite having the talent and physical capabilities to dominate games.
The striker is now in a dangerous situation where the opposite is true. He conflicts with his body to make it happen, despite now having a clear understanding of what is needed upstairs to deliver for boss Ten Hag.
“To return, rehabilitate, and get back, he has spent the most time at Carrington this season of any player.” said Ten Hag.
He isn’t always available, but we want him to be since that will help us win more games. When you are not constantly available, routines cannot develop.”
🗣 "I think Anthony Martial is the player who has spent the most hours at Carrington this season to recover and get back."

Man United Sale: Glazers family takes a strict stance on bids
The bidding procedure determining the club’s new owners has been made known to serious Manchester United suitors, who have less than a week to respond.
The specifics of what would be expected of interested parties before Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail has disclosed next Friday.
A Raine-related source told iNews earlier this week that “there will be all kinds of jokers eager to submit [deals].”
Raine group has requested that anyone interested in buying the club submit an offer that was no more than one paragraph to save them time.
State your bid price and the percentage of the club you want to purchase in each offer. This must also be supported by evidence of payment.
The process will become more complicated after this step, which should eliminate any unreliable participants.
However, a preferred bidder will ultimately be chosen and granted complete access to the club’s financial information.
Until then, all parties will only have access to a “data room,” which will provide a general snapshot of the club’s financial situation.
The Glazers are split over the valuation of Manchester United. Some family members would be prepared to consider bids of less than £5billion. The majority of the family are said to remain bullish about the price. [@MailSport]

Varane opens up about special Man United buzz
Varane has spoken about his increased appearance frequency and physical health ahead of this weekend’s trip to Elland Road. He also said he recently talked with Casemiro about the “buzz” at United.
The official Manchester United website quotes Varane as saying, “It’s true that, so far this season, I’ve been selected to start in a lot more matches than the previous season.”
“This lets me relax and share my expertise and positional knowledge, which gives me an understanding of the match’s flow and whether we’re playing well or poorly.”
“But I always strive to lead and support my teammates in defence, and I’m having a great time playing.”
“I enjoy playing, and I was telling Casemiro the same thing the other day. Something extraordinary is happening here, and the atmosphere is electric with strong feelings. I’m incredibly happy with how smoothly my integration into the team and my life here has gone.”
