Manchester United have stepped up preparations for Saturday’s Premier League meeting against Aston Villa on Saturday.
Ralf Rangnick oversaw training on Thursday, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire injured, along with Phil Jones and Jadon Sancho who will also be pushing for a recall.
Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay have both been banned from the match, meaning Alex Telles – fresh off a call-up in Brazil – and Donny van de Beek may be in attendance.
On the transfer front, Van de Beek has been loaned out to Newcastle, but a move is unlikely. Sources at United expect a quiet transfer window in January.
A transfer for Denis Zakaria, who is out of contract in the summer, has been ruled out, while Tariq Lamptey of Brighton has been linked with a £40million exit.
