A round up of news stories this morning about Manchester United.

Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo has explained how he’ll try and keep Sergio Aguero out of the Manchester derby.

Aguero is one of Manchester City’s key attacking threats and is a player United need to try and keep quiet.

“You have to stick close to him, that’s for sure. Be very attentive. Certainly in the penalty area he is a very quick mover and gets into position very quickly,” said Rojo.

Andreas Pereira says he wants to stay and sign a new contract with Manchester United.

The 18-year-old Brazilian is one of the most impressive youngsters from the United youth team ranks as he pushes for his Premier League debut.

“My intention is to stay here with the club. They [United] didn’t speak with me until now. I need to train well, do my part and if God wants they will extend my contract,” he said.

Heerenveen teenager Daley Sinkgraven says he’d prefer to play for a top club in the Netherlands before moving to the Premier League.

Sinkgraven has been linked with Manchester United due to Louis van Gaal’s Dutch connection.

“I would first prefer to play at the top of the Netherlands. I think it is too soon to move to a foreign country. Ajax would be a nice step,” said the youngster.
