Academy graduate Mason Greenwood was the star of the show as the Red Devils romped home, with January acquisition Bruno Fernandas also impressing yet again for his new side.

The result and display had fans asking just how good they could be with a few key additions – especially if any new arrival has a similar impact to that of Fernandes.

As always the rumour mill is full of reports linking Man Utd to players and here are the latest stories.

Man Utd close to reaching an agreement for star to leave

Juan Mata is edging closer towards the exit door at Old Trafford, according to Sansursuz Futbol.

Mata, 32, joined the Red Devils from Chelsea in 2014 and has remained an important contributor for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season making 34 appearances in all competitions.

Man Utd have big plans for this summer with the potential arrival of Jadon Sancho, and that means some players will need to leave.

One likely candidate is Mata, and according to the report (translated by Sport Witness), the Spanish international is close to finding an agreement with Fenerbahce.

The Turkish club are confident of signing the midfielder who is out of contract next summer.

Man Utd battling Arsenal for Real Madrid star

Manchester United and Arsenal are two of several clubs prepared to bid for James Rodriguez, according to Marca.

Rodriguez, 28, joined Real Madrid from Monaco in 2014 but has struggled to establish himself at the club. He was sent out on loan to Bayern Munich, but the German club eventually opted not to make the move permanent.

Los Blancos remain keen to move the Colombian international on, and according to the report, they will now entertain bids in the region of £22.5million.

That has enticed both Manchester United and Arsenal as well as several other Premier League clubs including Everton and Wolves. It remains to be seen whether a bid will be forthcoming.
