MANCHESTER UNITED secured a point at home to Liverpool after Adam Lallana's late equaliser, and are now off to Belgrade to face Partizan.

Follow all the latest transfer news, gossip and updates from the Theatre of Dreams below…

  • TARGET Milan Skriniar claims he has “no plans to leave Inter” after being continually linked with a move all summer.

    The Slovenian defender was aware of the continued interest from Old Trafford but is happy at the San Siro.

    The Red Devils reportedly wanted the 24-year-old as part of a swap deal with Romelu Lukaku.

    But the defender has put any speculation to bed.

  • MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly set to step up their pursuit of James Maddison as they target four new signings.

    The Leicester man, 22, has been in fine form under Brendan Rodgers this season, scoring three and grabbing two assists.

    United are understood to be keen on making a move next year for the former Coventry and Norwich midfielder.

    And according to the Manchester Evening News, the Old Trafford club are optimistic they can land him.

    The report suggests Manchester United see 23 as the ideal age for player recruitment – and Maddison turns 23 next month.

    His close friendship with former team-mate Harry Maguire, who moved from the King Power to Old Trafford this summer.

  • MANCHESTER UNITED youngster James Garner is a loan target for Preston and Wigan in the Championship.

    Both clubs are ready to make a move for the 18-year-old when the January window opens in a couple of months, with Sunderland also looking at the midfielder for a promotion push in League One.

    Garner has travelled for tomorrow’s/tonight’s Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade in Serbia – but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will weigh up whether he will be allowed out for regular games in the new year.

    Alex Neil is willing to take him to Deepdale as he looks to get into the Premier League, while Paul Cook at Wigan is also a big fan of the teenager.

    Garner has been taken in Solskjaer’s 20-man squad to face Partizan as Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic have limited options in midfield.

    David De Gea, Axel Tuanzebe and Luke Shaw have also missed out but Jesse Lingard has returned.

  • ED WOODWARD has joined Manchester United's players for their flight to Serbia ahead of their Europa League clash with Partizan Belgrade on Thursday.

    The Red Devils executive vice chairman was pictured walking into the airport with other stars but in a big blow to United fans, David De Gea was missing from the travelling party.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led the group into Manchester airport this afternoon and there were a number of notable omissions.

    Paul Pogba, Axel Tuanzebe and Luke Shaw were all absent but Jesse Lingard is back in the fold.

    De Gea misses out with a groin problem while Lingard has shrugged off a hamstring injury to join back in with his teammates.

    Woodward is under intense pressure at the moment for his role in United's gradual decline since he took over from David Gill.

    And his decision to fly with the players has surprised some given his recent claim he “does not want to be famous and can't be mates with the players”.

  • DAVID DE GEA missed Manchester United training today along with Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw with all three ruled out of tomorrow's game against Partizan Belgrade.

    It was a surprise to see the Spanish goalkeeper named in the starting XI for Sunday's draw with Liverpool but he hasn't trained since due to a groin problem.

    United announced the travelling party for Belgrade after the session with Sergio Romero set to start in goal.

    Paul Pogba also sat out the day's workout after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the midfielder was due for a foot scan on Monday.

    A hamstring injury continues to keep Luke Shaw on the sidelines and fellow full-back Diogo Dalot confirmed his own absence on Twitter earlier in the week.

    Two players who missed United's upturn in form against Liverpool remain absent.
