According to the Manchester Evening News, he has been invited to find a new club for himself after a disappointing first year at Old Trafford.

There is interest from AC Milan and Inter Milan, but he would have to take a big wage cut to join either Italian side.

One man who has arrived at the club is Zlatan Ibrahimovic, in arguably the biggest move of the transfer window to date.

His signing has naturally captured the fans imaginations, but it seems his new teammates are equally excited.

Marcus Rashford is particularly keen to work with the Sweden star, telling the Manchester Evening News he wants to be more like him.

“We can definitely all learn from him while he is here, so we all need to take that chance,” he said.

“It’s a massive help to be with him every day and it’s great to see what he is like on and off the pitch. There is a lot to learn from him and hopefully I can bring some of his game into mine.”
