Manchester United latest: Including Anderson and Young

Young And Scholes Free Kick

A round-up of news, views, and gossip relating to Manchester United over the past 24 hours.

The agent of Nemanja Vidic has denied reports the player could leave the club, amid speculation of a move to either Juventus or Barcelona. The Serbian defender's agent said that the 30-year-old is fully focused on recovering from his injury and playing for Manchester United.

Ashley Young is back in training for Manchester United, offering them a boost when the Premier League resumes from its international break. He has not featured since the game against Fulham, and was spotted in the away end against Newcastle, watching the club's recent 3-0 win. He hope to be available for the match against Stoke on October 20.

Brazilian midfielder Anderson has said he does intend on returning to former club Porto, but not yet. He feels he still has a point to prove at United, and wants to remain at the club for the foreseeable future. He did state one club he won't be joining; Benfica, out of loyalty to his former employers.

Wayne Rooney is to become a dad, for the second time. His wife Coleen confirmed the new on Twitter last night. The couple already have one child, Kai Rooney. It was the first good piece of news in a memorable 24 hours for the player; it was today announced he will captain England tomorrow against San Marino.

Former Manchester United player Park Ji-Sung has come in for criticism at his new club QPR, with ex-Hoops player Lee Cook attacking Park, Bosingwa, and a host of new signings as being more interested in a 'pay day' than results on the pitch. It certainly seems harsh, as most United players and fans would describe Park as a model professional from his time at the Red Devils.

The agent of Kevin Strootman has once again been touting the player's potential availability in January. The PSV midfielder is keen to move on, but a price tag of £20 million could put off the Red Devils.

United have also been linked with Juventus youngster Richmond Boakye, a 19-year-old striker who is currently on loan with Serie B side Sassuolo. Scouts were said to have been monitoring his teammate Dominico Berardi last month.

Gordon Banks hit out at David de Gea's goalkeeping skills yesterday, but the Spaniard has received backing today, from his own national under-21 coach Julen Lopetegu who insists the stopper has everything in his locker to become a world star.

And finally, we take a look at Patrice Evra's latest training ground gaffe with the French squad, repeatedly calling the new call-ups to the team their wrong names by mistake.
