A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United…
In the midst of Manchester United’s frustrating summer transfer window, news of Saidy Janko’s deadline-day move was lost in the headlines surrounding Marouane Fellaini and bemoaning the lack of new faces.
But the 17-year-old Swiss defender looks set to make his first appearance for his new club in the UEFA Youth League against Real Sociedad tomorrow.
Revealing that Janko had finally received international clearance, youth coach Nicky Butt told United’s official website, “Saidy is clear. He’s a good talent and we’re all excited about him. He has good presence and goes about the game the right way.”
In other news, United’s under-21s drew 0-0 with their Everton counterparts last night.
Fabio, Guillermo Varela, Will and Michael Keane all started for United, but it was the Toffees who had the better chances, hitting the woodwork twice in the second half.
An Albanian FA spokesman is quoting as saying, “We are ready to accept anything just to have the young, talented Januzaj become part of our national team, so he can contribute for the future of Albanian football.”
