Manchester United Transfer News: Manchester United fans must be pleased with the team’s improvement, progress and clarity in the ongoing season. The EPL giants have long been criticized for their inability to produce a collective spark in clutch moments.

The former Inter Milan midfielder is expected to miss the next half of the season. This is indeed a massive setback for the Red Devils. As per various sources, the experienced midfielder is expected to be out of action for several months.
On the other hand, Houssem Aouar played only nine games for Olympique Lyon in the current season. The Ligue 1 star struggled with injuries more often than not. However, he has recently returned to action.
“Christian Eriksen is expected to be out of action for an extended period. It is due to an ankle injury that he sustained in our FA Cup victory over Reading on Saturday. Our Danish midfielder was withdrawn in the second half of the 3-1 win after being caught by a tackle from Reading striker Andy Carroll. While investigations are continuing, initial assessments indicate that Eriksen is likely to be out until late April or early May,” Manchester United mentioned in a statement via an official release.
