Manchester United are now preparing to take on Fulham amid increasing pressure on the back of disappointing results. Erik ten Hag may be fighting for his job after back-to-back 3-0 home defeats, which includes a derby defeat to Manchester City and a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Newcastle United.

A win is almost a must at Craven Cottage for the Red Devils, and fortunately for them, Fulham have now hit the standards set last season this term, at least not yet. In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Old Trafford.

Neville on Rangnick

Gary Neville has questioned United's decision to ship former interim boss Ralf Rangnick out of the club. Rangnick was not going to work out as a long-term manager, but he was meant to take up a two-year consultancy role after his interim spell.

That never happened, though, with Rangnick angering many because of his complaints about the club and its current infrastructure. Speaking about the situation on the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel, Neville said: "As soon as he started unleashing the truth about the club, they got him out there as quickly as possible.”

Ratcliffe investment

Jim Ratcliffe is set to hand United a huge financial boost if his partial takeover goes through as expected. Ratcliffe is expected to complete a 25% takeover of the club, and he is hoping to secure control of football operations.

According to Sky News, Ratcliffe is planning to invest £245million of personal wealth into the club to boost finances, and that investment, according to the report, will be for club infrastructure. It's added that none of that money will be used for squad improvements, contracts or transfers. Nevertheless, it could be a big boost for United who are still in the process of planning stadium improvements.
