Man Utd could repeat Rooney masterclass by sealing “magnificent” late £40m transfer

When Manchester United plays Wolves on Thursday, they have the opportunity to begin their Premier League season.

Erik ten Hag’s team beat Newport County 4-2, almost by accident, last Saturday, which exposed their weakness in the back.

Alan Shearer, who hailed the defender as “magnificent” for his performances in the Toffees’ back, echoes that assessment. For a young player, he performed like a seasoned professional and settled in well as the left center-back. That sounds a lot like Rooney.
