9.30am Man Utd news LIVE: De Gea to reject new deal, Rashford held Barcelona talks, and Lingard injury LATEST – The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED suffered another disappointing result after being held to a draw against Southampton ahead of the international break.
But one player that has impressed this season is new boy Daniel James, with the Welsh winger picking up the club's player of the month award – but David de Gea could be on his way out in the near future.
Follow us here for ALL of the latest United news and updates…
EXCLUSIVE by Matt Heath-Smith: MANCHESTER UNITED’S stars are glad to see the back of Alexis Sanchez.
They believed he was wildly overpaid and undeserving of his mammoth £505,000-a-week salary.
One player repeatedly complained: “He was no Messi so why pay him all that dough.”
The Chilean flop, 30, sealed a loan move to Inter Milan last week after a disastrous 19 months at Old Trafford.
EXCLUSIVE by Mike McGrath: DAVID DE GEA has told friends he is willing to snub Manchester United’s latest contract offer.
The United keeper has stalled on the £350,000-a-week deal on the table.
And Spain team-mates believe he could run his current contract down and talk to other clubs in January.
De Gea, 28, rejected offers to extend his Old Trafford terms last season. And he now has just nine months left before he can depart on a free transfer.
There was a breakthrough in talks over the summer when there was an agreement in principle on a long-term deal.
But so far De Gea has not put pen-to-paper to commit himself. The deal remains on the table and will be formally announced once he signs.

FORMER Juventus boss Marcello Lippi has claimed that the Old Lady came very close to signing Roy Keane.
Keane, 48, was a dominant midfielder during his time at Manchester United and he helped his side beat Juve en route to their memorable treble-winning campaign in the 1998/99 season.
Speaking to the Mail, he said: ” “I loved (Roy) Keane.
“He was very close to moving to Juventus but then failed to negotiate.
“I also loved (Paul) Scholes: he would have liked it anywhere and always played.”
ROY KEANE has told Marcus Rashford he must learn from his England team-mate Raheem Sterling if he wants to be more consistent.
Sterling scored a goal as well as providing an assist in the 4-0 win against Bulgaria earlier today.
Speaking after the game, Keane said: “We said before the game he’s [Sterling] affecting games over the last couple of years.
“We spoke about Rashford, Rashford, sometimes the best example for any player is one of their team-mates.
“Rashford can learn so much from Sterling, whether training with him or watching him at close quarters.
“That’s a great lesson and hopefully he is picking up them tips that we did see in the second half.”
