Manchester United

Otamendi would meet United's need for strength in central defence

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner, Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss the four goalkeepers that are included in the Premier League top 50 in #PremRank, citing David De Gea is the most commanding of the goalkeepers.

With the season now over, attention turns to the transfer window and every day this week, we'll be analysing the different areas in Manchester United's squad. Next up are the defenders.

Sum up the defensive situation at the club

United started the season without anything like a first choice defence available, with wingers Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young being deployed as fullbacks and wing-backs, as manager Louis van Gaal struggled to fill his 3-5-2 formation. Thanks to injuries, Tyler Blackett...

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney goes swimming with a pig

After another long old slog of a season, Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney toddled off on a family holiday to the West Indies for a spot of well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Rooney and his brood happened across one of the stranger phenomenons the Bahamas have to offer after taking a dip in the azure waters just off the shore of the appropriately named "Pig Island".

The United man posted the following holiday snap on Instagram along with the caption: "Didn't expect to see pigs in the sea in...

Man Utd goalkeepers -- David De Gea key, but will Valdes replace him?

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether Victor Valdes can be Manchester United's top goalkeeper should David De Gea leave this summer. Shaka Hislop does not feel the 33-year-old is capable of handling starting duties.

With Manchester United's season now over, thoughts have now firmly turned to the recruitments to be made over the summer.

Every day this week we'll be analysing a different area of the squad -- we start with the goalkeepers.

Sum up the goalkeeping situation at the club

The current and undisputed No. 1 at Old Trafford is David De Gea, but it is unclear how much longer that will be the case. He is arguably one of the top three goalkeepers in the world, and his excellence has drawn the attention of...

As the majority of the world's leagues ready for the season's end, the rumours continue to pick up steam. Things are starting to get real, transfer fans.

United to steal Saints star from under Arsene's nose?

Chelsea risked looking the fools by re-signing Nemanja Matic for £21 million last year having swapped him and £25 million for David Luiz three years previous, but the Blues are laughing now with a world-class defensive midfielder in their Premier League title-winning side.

Rio Ferdinand became a Manchester United great after early difficulties

The ESPN FC crew react to the retirement announcement of former England international Rio Ferdinand.

Nilmar paused to think. The striker who once scored a winner for Brazil vs. England had been asked to name the best player he'd ever played against. "Rio Ferdinand for Manchester," he eventually replied. "I played against him for Lyon. He's fast, and his positioning was perfect."

It was the 2007-08 season when Nilmar came up against Ferdinand, who announced his retirement on Saturday after playing his final season for QPR. The central defender was at his peak as Manchester United won the European...

Man United could use a full-back like Denis Irwin

The ESPN FC crew discuss Manchester United's Angel Di Maria in the latest #PremRank, where Shaka Hislop believes with time, he will make an impact at Old Trafford.

One of Manchester United's best-ever defenders, Rio Ferdinand, has just announced his retirement from professional football, while the club is currently looking for an elite player to occupy the right-back role. United's back four is in transition, and it feels timely to reflect upon some of those greats who have graced it before.

One of those is Denis Irwin. When discussing the finest full-backs to have played the game, it seems his name is often overlooked -- which is, in itself, strangely fitting....
