This morning, Manchester United will likely wake up with a sense of relief, as they have avoided suffering an embarrassing loss for the second time in a week, this time at the hands of Omonia.
The game-winning goal scored by Scott McTominay insured that they would collect all three points once more, allowing them to maintain their point differential with Real Sociedad, who are in first place in the group. On this particular night, Cristiano Ronaldo was playing his sixth game of the season and was leading the line.
In the match against Omonia, he went the full 180 minutes without scoring, keeping his total for the year at two goals. As a result, he was left feeling dissatisfied. A decision regarding his future will likely not be made until the January transfer market opens.
It has been reported that Manchester United will provide Erik ten Hag with a smaller spending budget in the new year. As a result, in light of the fact that Anthony Martial has proven to be unreliable due to a history of injuries, the manager of the Reds may decide to stick with Ronaldo until the end of the current campaign.
The chances of United successfully acquiring Frenkie de Jong as a player have been significantly improved. According to many reports, Barcelona is getting set to cash in on the Netherlands player.
In spite of United’s public pursuit of him during the summer transfer window, he ultimately decided to remain at Barcelona’s Nou Camp due to contractual concerns. According to the Daily Mail, there has been a significant development leading up to the month of January as the Spanish giants confront the possibility of being eliminated from the Champions League.
This indicates that they may be required to recoup some of the 132 million pounds that they spent during the summer.
