Manchester United media round-up: Allardyce makes interesting admission over Old Trafford

Sam Allardyce

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has been quoted by ESPN suggesting that his dream job would be to manage Manchester United.

Allardyce is one of the most experienced managers in England and is yet to receive the offer of a new contract at Upton Park.

His current deal expires at the end of the season and he’s made it clear he has aspirations of the top job at Old Trafford one day in the future.

“There has always been one dream club to manage for me and that would be Man United,” he said.

Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young has been quoted by Sky Sports suggesting that the club want to correct past derby mistakes against Manchester City this weekend.

United go into the game this weekend as slight favourites due to their solid recent form, which has seen them secure a number of impressive victories.

City on the other hand have slid down the Premier League table having watched their Premier League title challenge disintegrate.

“That's something you want to put right (United’s recent record in the derby). It will be another massive game,” said Young.

The Metro has reported that Manchester United are in the clear to sign off on a deal for Roberto Firmino.

The paper claims United have been linked with a move for the Brazilian for some time and are looking to make him a summer capture.

The Metro’s report suggests that any deal is going to set United back in the region of the £18.6 million mark.
