Manchester United have booked their place in the last-8 of the FA Cup after a hard-fought 1-0 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford. The Red Devils were made to work for the victory, with the Hammers putting up a strong defensive performance, but a late goal from Bruno Fernandes was enough to secure the win.
The victory means that United are now just one win away from the semi-finals of the competition, and they will be hoping to go all the way and lift the trophy for the first time since 2016.
Meanwhile, reports have emerged that a group of US investors are ready to back the Glazer family in their ownership of Manchester United. The group, which includes former NFL team owners, is reportedly willing to invest up to £1 billion in the club, and could help to ease the financial burden on the Glazers.
The news comes as a boost to United fans, who have been vocal in their criticism of the Glazers’ ownership of the club. The investment could help to improve the club’s financial situation, and could also help to fund new signings in the transfer market.
Finally, Red Devils fans have been left scratching their heads after a cryptic message from RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer. The Austrian international posted a picture of himself in a Manchester United shirt on social media, with the caption “#MUFC”.
The post has sparked speculation that Sabitzer could be on his way to Old Trafford, with some fans believing that the post was a hint that he could be set for a move to the club. However, it remains to be seen whether the post was just a joke, or if there is any truth to the rumours.
Either way, it looks like it could be an exciting summer for Manchester United fans, with the club seemingly on the brink of securing a major investment, and potentially a new signing in the form of Sabitzer.
