The frustrating Marcos Rojo has talked up his promising namesake (sort of) Marcus Rashford. There are quotes in the Mirror about this, and that they are top of this round-up shows just how short of excitement we are, this far into the international break.

Manchester United want Benfica's teenage midfielder Renato Sanches, according to this story on ESPNFC. Benfica want to keep him for at least one more season, mind. Basically, if Jorge Mendes is his agent and United do whatever else he might want, then we should probably take this all with a pinch of salt.

The Telegraph say it will take £47 million to buy him, too. Mary Poppins.

On the Daily Mail... is a load of racist crap. On the sport part of the website, though, is praise for Paddy McNair, who they have cynically speculated is going to be United's Eric Dier. He won't, he's nowhere near as good.

Lastly, on the Manchester Evening News, Luke Shaw will soon be back in training. Hooray!
