MANCHESTER UNITED continued their good form as they thrashed Alkmaar at Old Trafford.

Now, they prepare to face Everton who got off to a brilliant start under caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson by beating Chelsea last weekend.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils have been hit with a double transfer blow with Atletico Madrid not willing to let Saul Niguez go on the cheap and Erling Braut Haaland edging towards a move to Borussia Dortmund.

Yet, talks have reportedly begun with Dries Mertens as the Red Devils eye a free transfer for the Napoli ace.
