MUTV are to screen an exclusive van Persie interview on Sunday
Mark Sullivan reads Wednesday's update from Old Trafford
Ex-Reds warm up for Real Madrid with a five-a-side 'unfriendly'
16:32 For the last hour, I’ve been working on a story based on an interview I conducted with Andy Cole ahead of this Sunday’s Red Heart United match. Intriguingly, the Treble winner spoke about his Reds departure and explained with great candour and honesty why he now regrets his decision to leave. Make sure you return to ManUtd.com in the morning to read his reasons. (MF)
16:28 Shinji Kagawa played the full 90 minutes of Japan's 2-0 defeat to Bulgaria at the Toyota Stadium today. (AM)
14:24 Last week, I managed to bag an exclusive interview with United legend Gary Neville, who spoke openly about the importance of our four young England internationals - Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck - and the advancements they should make at Old Trafford next season. You can read what the Treble winner and current England coach had to say here. (MF)
11:35 It's a shame Mark Hughes has fallen out of favour in some United fans' eyes. I know the new Stoke boss (see 10:30 entry) managed Manchester City a few years ago, but I don't think we should let that taint our memories of him in a Reds shirt. He was absolutely tremendous in his two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 163 goals in his 467 games. There's probably never been a better volleyer of the ball, either... (NC)
10:30 It's a welcome back to the Barclays Premier League for former United favourite Mark Hughes.
