Man Utd eye Grimaldo
09:26: Manchester United are weighing up a move to sign Benfica left-back Alejandro Grimaldo, according to Portuguese publication Record.
Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the Spain U21 international and is keen to bring him to Old Trafford.
Grimaldo is under contract with Benfica until 2021.
Romelu Lukaku vs Harry Kane debate
08.35: Matt Le Tissier would sooner have Harry Kane in his team than Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku.
The Tottenham man has outscored the £75m summer signing by one Premier League goal so far this season.
And Le Tissier told Sky Sports: “Harry Kane has to be my striker.
“Romelu Lukaku has had a cracking start and the two of them are excellent players but I just think Kane’s form at the moment and over a longer period of time justifies him getting the nod.”
Ryan Giggs makes Tottenham prediction
07.50: Ryan Giggs expects Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to settle for a narrow win over Tottenham on Saturday.
The Red Devils legend told Sky Sports: “It’s a huge game and the crowd will really be up for it, but if you go after Tottenham they can get you.
“You always want to put in a good performance but United just need a scrappy 1-0 win.
“I think Jose Mourinho and the fans would take that and forget about producing an entertaining performance.”
Leander Dendoncker speaks out
07.00: Anderlecht ace Leander Dendoncker has given his verdict on suggestions Jose Mourinho wanted him at Manchester United this summer.
The Belgium international told Sport/Foot: “If it was as concrete as was being said, if they wanted me at all costs, I’d already be there.
“When you play for Anderlecht and you have the chance to go there, you don’t hesitate, but Anderlecht had their bit to say. Everyone had to agree.
“For a club to pay what they were asking for, the club needed to be concretely interested. If Anderlecht asked for a lot of money, it’s because they knew it would be difficult, and, at that time of the year, the price was over exaggerated.”
