After selling Paddy McNair and Donald Love to Sunderland and then securing a season long loan spell for Adnan Januzaj with the same club, is the squad set to be trimmed further with the loan of another youngster to the north-east?

The reason we ask is that the Daily Mail, Click Here, is championing the inference that Middlesbrough are keen to acquire the services of Andreas Pereira.

The 20-year-old has been told that he does have a future at Old Trafford but is not part of Jose Mourinho`s plans for this season.

A move to Middlesbrough, albeit on loan, could be sanctioned when you consider that the Middlesbrough boss, Aitor Karanka, is a good friend of Mourinho after the two worked together at Real Madrid.

If the 20-year-old is agreeable to a loan move to Teeside then we see no reason why Karanka shouldn`t get his man, albeit on loan.
