A round up of the key news stories about Manchester United this morning.
Borussia Dortmund and Germany star Mats Hummels will not be moving to Manchester United according to Hans Joachim-Watzke.
The chief executive of the German club has called the rumours nonsense, insisting that Hummels will stay put.
“That is absolute nonsense. This is a complete non-story. There’s no truth whatsoever in these rumours,” Joachim-Watzke told ZDF.
Turkish club Galatasaray remain linked with a potential move for Manchester United winger Nani.
Roberto Mancini is thought to be keen on the wide man, despite the fact he signed a new five-year deal at Old Trafford over the summer.
However, the Portuguese star has failed to nail down a regular starting place under David Moyes so far this season.
Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has highlighted the need for David Moyes to have a unified backroom team.
Ferguson attributes one of the main factors of his success during his 26-year reign at the club to having settled and happy staff around him.
“Three things are very important when you are working with them: work ethic, loyalty and philosophy. It’s important that your people agree with you and the way that we at United wanted to play, that was very important,” Ferguson told a UEFA coaching workshop.
