Manchester United transfer news LIVE Rashford and Ronaldo latest plus Denis Zakaria news

Manchester United will today step up their preparations ahead of Saturday’s Premier League encounter against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ralf Rangnick will be without suspended duo Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay for the match but is hopeful that Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Harry Maguire and Phil Jones could all return after missing Monday’s game against the same side with minor knocks.

Meanwhile, United are not expected to sign Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria this month.

United have run the rule over a number of midfielders with Ralf Rangnick keen to strengthen in that area after taking over as interim manager, and Zakaria is someone recruitment chiefs at Old Trafford have monitored.

The 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer and sources in Germany believe he would be allowed to leave Borussia Park this month for a cut-price fee of around £6million.

But United sources are still expecting a quiet January transfer window with regards to incomings and it is understood there have been no talks with Borussia Monchengladbach or Zakaria’s representatives over a deal at this stage.
