Ole to miss a key man against Aston Villa, Nicolas' transfer update, plus the latest on CR7

Apart from the Manchester United reports about the reactions to the shocking Carabao Cup elimination at the hands of West Ham, Manchester United has a number of under-the-radar stories, and below are some of the stories you may have missed.

Manchester United are interested in this versatile Uruguayan midfielder.

Manchester United have reportedly turned their attention to River Plate's Nicolas de Ia Cruz as a potential midfield signing, according to Fichajes. The uncertainty surrounding Pogba's future after his contract expires next year has fueled a move for Nicolas. Nicolas, if signed by Manchester United, will add a new dimension to United's midfield. Since breaking onto the scene for Riverplate as a 20-year-old in the summer of 2020, he has grown to be one of the most entertaining midfielders in Europe, with a slew of elite European clubs chasing after him.

Ronaldo is tipped to manage Manchester United in the future.

After being substituted out of the game against Young Boys, Christiano Ronaldo was seen standing next to Ole Gunnar, assisting him in rallying the remaining players on the pitch. Rio Ferdinand slammed the move and warned Ole not to let it happen again, but Ole dismissed Ferdinand's claims. Tim Sherwood, speaking to Sport Bible about the issue, had this to say about it: "It's a completely different Ronaldo to the one who was at Old Trafford the first time around. He knows how he's needed, and if he feels like he needs to stand next to the manager and give instructions, then you've got to let him do that... I would have a bet on him being Manchester United manager in 18 months. Whenever Ronaldo finishes playing, I think he will become a manager. It will be an automatic choice. "

Ole will be without a key player against Aston Villa.

So far this season, Edinson Cavani has only made one cameo appearance for Manchester United, when he came on during the Southampton match. Since then, he has yet to make an appearance, and the reason for this is not because of Christiano Ronaldo, but because he received a knock in training and has yet to fully recover from it. As a result, he will be unavailable for the Aston Villa match. Here's what Ole said about Edinson Cavani recently, "...He has not trained enough to be part of this. He is working hard and he knows his body better than anyone. He will put his hand up when he is ready."
