All the latest Manchester United news on deadline day.

In team news, Manchester United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, continuing David Moyes’ poor record against the Merseyside outfit.

Daniel Sturridge scored the only goal of the game from a corner after just 3 minutes played against Brendan Rodgers’ Reds.

The defeat became the Red Devils’ first loss of the 2013/14 season but manager David Moyes praised his team’s performance, despite the disappointing result.

Wayne Rooney missed the trip to Anfield after being sidelined with a head injury suffered in training ahead of the fixture.

The England number 10, Rooney will also miss England’s World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine along with defender Phil Jones who came off with an ankle problem in the first half of Sunday’s game.

Captain Nemanja Vidic is keen to ‘make amends’ in United’s next fixture against Crystal Palace on September 14th following the international break.

“You need the next game as quickly as possible - The next game is Crystal Palace and we have to be ready,” explained the skipper.

In transfer news, the major headline of deadline day today is United have ‘agreed’ to meet Ander Herrera’s £36 million buyout clause to bring the Athletic Bilbao midfielder to Old Trafford after a previous bid was rejected on Friday.

United are ‘closing in’ on Everton’s Marouane Fellaini, according to reports, the Belgian midfielder could be set to move in a £24 million deal from Goodison Park to link up with former Toffees boss David Moyes at Old Trafford.

However, his teammate and United target Leighton Baines is expected to stay at Everton, although with just hours left before the window closes, a shock move for the England fullback could still happen.

Meanwhile, Roma have rejected an ‘opening offer’ of £12 million from United for Daniele De Rossi. The Italian giants have stated they will reject any and all offers for the 30-year-old midfielder.
