Man United news LIVE: Erik ten Hag’s agent Kees Vos’ influence around transfers concerns club staff and the Red Devils deny training room bust-up


Follow Mail Sport’s live blog for all the latest news and updates from Old Trafford on Tuesday. 

Harry Kane would have waited until next summer to sign for Manchester United if he was given assurances over a move to Old Trafford, United Confidential can exclusively reveal.

However, Kane had set his heart on United and would have seen out the final 12 months of his contract at Spurs before signing for Erik ten Hag’s side as a free agent next year if he knew the deal was guaranteed to go ahead.

But Kane, 30, believes it will make Erik ten Hag’s side all the more determined to start strongly in Europe at the Allianz Arena, against the team they beat in the 1999 Champions League final.

The United manager has axed his £73million wonderkid indefinitely and has stated he does not know if the 23-year-old will play for him again.

Gary Neville has claimed that Erik ten Hag has ‘some bugs within the Manchester United dressing room’ that could be creating some ‘discomfort and uncertainty’.

United spent almost £200million on new recruits including Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount and Andre Onana in a bid to continue the positive momentum from Erik ten Hag‘s first season in charge.

But after three defeats from their opening five Premier League games – the latest a dismal 3-1 home loss to Brighton – it’s questionable whether United are any better off.

United manager Ten Hag criticised Sancho for failing to meet the required standard in training as he explained the decision to omit the 23-year-old from his matchday squad in a recent Premier League defeat against Arsenal.

In a clearing in a forest, a gravel path gives way to a square of tarmac that is about the size of a football pitch. It is all that is left of what was once the runway at Munich-Riem airport. It was from a point near there that the Busby Babes began their final journey on February 6, 1958.

There are two thick white lines running down the middle of the tarmac, the remnants of airport markings. But there is not much else to identify it. Even those lines are stained by tyre tracks, tell-tale signs of kids finding a hidden spot to spin cars in roaring circles, doing doughnuts after dark.

The echoes of the saddest moments in Manchester United’s history whisper at you as you stand there, gazing into the distance where the runway once led. ‘It’s now or never,’ Roger Byrne, United’s skipper, said as the British European Airways twin-engine Elizabethan sat there on the tarmac, preparing to make its third take-off attempt.

Darren Bent has said that he does ‘not believe Marcus Rashford is a world class footballer’ insisting that ‘he lacks consistency compared to Arsenal star Bukayo Saka‘.

Rashford scored 30 goals in 56 appearances across all competitions for Manchester United last season, being ranked as the club’s top goals scorer during the 2022-23 campaign.

His stats after the opening five games of the new Premier League season, mirror those at the beginning of the previous campaign, with the winger having recorded one goal and one assist in his first five league appearances.

Rio Ferdinand has scathingly labelled the actions of Manchester United’s owners, the Glazer family, as ‘disgraceful’ and pinned the blame for recent poor results on their lack of communication.

‘I always say, when something bad happens it’s to bring something good,’ he said in an article for GQ last month.

After plugging in arguably his worst performance in a Manchester United shirt against Brighton, and United falling to three defeats in their opening five games for the first time since 1989, he better hope that ‘something good’ is delivered against Harry Kane and Co in Munich.

Manchester United have denied reports that their players were involved in a furious dressing room bust-up in the wake of their 3-1 loss at home to Brighton on Saturday.

The Red Devils continued their turbulent season that has been beset by problems on and off the field – with Erik ten Hag already involved in a feud with Jadon Sancho over his training performance.

The campaign has also seen discontent from the supporters over the Glazers’ failure to sell the club as takeover talks drag on, with the toxic atmosphere seemingly impacting on the players after three defeats in their first five games.

I’m sure this one will be sure to boil some blood in the red half of Manchester…

The Red Devils have endured a torrid start to the new season and have lost three out of their opening five matches – after falling to defeat against Spurs, Arsenal and Brighton.

And, ahead of their Champions League opener against FK Crvena Zvezda on Tuesday, rival boss Guardiola was asked about the Red Devils’ early form.

The Champions League is back for another season as Europe’s elite prepare to battle it out on the biggest stage in club football.

Manchester City are out to retain their status as European champions, while cross-city rivals United face a daunting curtain-raiser against Bayern Munich.

Arsenal return to the Champions League following a six-year absence and Newcastle rejoin the top table for the first time since 2003 as they look to qualify from the toughest group of the lot.

The Red Devils will be taking on old foes Bayern tomorrow night.

Free agent David de Gea is reportedly being offered the chance to return to Spain with one LaLiga club lining up a move for him.

De Gea has been without a club since the end of June after he was released by Manchester United, after failing to agree new terms at Old Trafford.

Since leaving United where he spent 12 years of his career, De Gea has been linked with big moves to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Here’s one to get us started this morning…

Manchester United staff have expressed concerns about the growing involvement of Erik ten Hag‘s agent Kees Vos in transfer activity at Old Trafford.

Mail Sport can reveal that Vos’s Sports Entertainment Group have become the go-to agency in negotiating player signings and sales for United, as well as providing informal advice on the transfer market.

In another indication of the close relationship between the club and SEG, it can be disclosed that Ten Hag’s son Nigel works for the agency as an analyst.

Good morning everyone!

Good morning everyone, and welcome to this morning’s live blog bringing you everything Man United.
