Man Utd to assess Jones injury

Manchester United defender Phil Jones is expected to meet with the club's medical staff on Tuesday as the Red Devils wait to discover the extent of the injury he sustained on England duty.

Jones limped off in the 77th minute of Monday's 2-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory in Switzerland due to what appeared to be hamstring problem.

No confirmation has been forthcoming from the Football Association on the matter and United will be eager to assess the 22-year-old when he arrives back in Manchester.

The Old Trafford outfit, without a win to their name yet this season after four matches in all competitions under new boss Louis van Gaal, are next in action when they host QPR in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday.

Several United players could make debuts in the match, including Jones' fellow England defender Luke Shaw, who it is understood is now fit and ready for selection.

Left-back Shaw has been unable to make a competitive appearance for his new side following a summer switch from Southampton having suffered a hamstring injury of his own in August.

There could also be United bows on Sunday for another defender in Marcos Rojo, with the necessary paperwork for him to do so now signed off, plus the versatile Daley Blind and striker Radamel Falcao, the two transfer deadline day recruits.

Falcao age rumours "not an issue" - United

Manchester United insist there is no issue with regard to the age of their new striker Radamel Falcao.

Falcao, who United signed on a season-long loan deal from Monaco on transfer deadline day, has denied reports he is two years older than he claims, which would make him 30 rather than 28.

Such talk has surrounded the Colombia international for some time and in 2013 he addressed the matter on Twitter, stressing the speculation was "completely ridiculous".

He has also previously released a copy of his birth certificate in a bid to prove he is the age he says he is.

United have now played down the idea of Falcao lying about how old he is, saying there has not been a problem on that front as far as the club are concerned.

"We were aware of the rumours at the time and it was never an issue," a club spokesman said.

Falcao could make his United debut in Sunday's Barclays Premier League home clash with QPR.

Italian midfielder Davide Petrucci has joined Romanian club CFR Cluj after being released from his Manchester United contract by mutual consent.

The 22-year-old moved to United from hometown club Roma in 2008 but was unable to break into the first team at Old Trafford and spent time out on loan at Peterborough, Royal Antwerp and Charlton.

A United statement read: "Everyone at Manchester United would like to wish Davide well at his new club."

The European champions were looking to reinforce their attacking line following the departure of Alvaro Morata to Juventus this summer.

The 26-year-old Hernandez, who joined the Red Devils in 2010 from Mexican outfit Guadalajara, had grown increasingly frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford and was looking for a new challenge.

"Real Madrid and Manchester United have reached an agreement for the transfer of Javier Hernandez Chicharito, who will join the club for the current season.

"Real Madrid holds an option to buy the player.

"Javier Hernandez Chicharito will hold a press conference at the Santiago Bernabeu on Monday afternoon."
