Today in Cluj

training session at Carrington, as well as the lads checking in at the airport during the hourly news bulletins both before and after tonight’s Under-21s match. Don’t forget, you can listen to live radio commentary of the Cluj game on MUTV and watch the match in full on the channel from midnight on Tuesday. You can also see extended highlights of the clash on MUTV Online from 23:00 BST.

19:44 We had a very pleasant flight over to Cluj with Turkish Airlines (for those of you interested, we ate some exceptionally good cottage pie). A lot of the talk on the plane was about last night’s incredible comeback by Europe in the Ryder Cup. I briefly spoke to Sir Alex about it and he was full of praise for the "fantastic" European team. The other big talking point, as is usually the case, is the starting XI. Click on the video link on the left to see who MUTV commentator Stewart Gardner is predicting we’ll see line up at the CFR Stadium tomorrow night.

19:23 That's a wrap. Press conference over. It's a little worrying to hear Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs had to stay behind in Manchester due to the flu, but United have plenty of options in midfield. We should see a few other players gain some valuable minutes tomorrow night.

19:22 Sir Alex also revealed he's "very pleased" with Shinji Kagawa. "He's been terrific. He's a very good professional, finds space very well and he's got me two goals. And he could have scored another two! He's a goal threat. It's not easy to adapt to English football but bit by bit he's getting down to that part."

19:21 The boss has also confirmed that Mikael Silvestre is "just training with us". Sir Alex expects him to go and play in India in December.
