Team news for Man Utd v Cardiff City

Neil Warnock says he must be given money to spend on new players if he is to stay as Cardiff City manager.

After the Bluebirds were relegated from the Premier League last Saturday, Warnock said he had “no idea” where he would be next season.

We will need two or three good signings to get us there. Without the players I think well be one of a number of teams, but if we get two or three good players in I think we could set off the season on a high and continue throughout.

“I think its vital that we can look to get two or three signings as quickly as possible really,” said Warnock.

But when I look back to Gainsborough Trinity, a young manager with ambitions at the bottom rungs (of the league), I used to wake up in the middle of the night and imagine my ambitions written on the ceiling.

“Im seeing Mehmet [Dalman, Cardiff chairman] and Ken [Choo, chief executive] on Monday. Were having a full day together, discussing all aspects of the club.

“Im aware of what Vincents said but Ive been so busy, Ive had so many things to do, I havent really had the time.

“I think weve arrived as a football club this year. Were a big club now and weve got to think big now.”

Warnock is to have talks with chairman Mehmet Dalman and chief executive Ken Choo on Monday to discuss next seasons strategy, while Tan could also be present at the meeting.

Cardiff are away at Manchester United for their final Premier League match of the season on Sunday, and it is possible Tan might be at Old Trafford.

The Malaysian businessman said this week that he wants Warnock to stay and for the 70-year-old to attempt to extend his own record of promotions as a manager to nine.

When Warnock was appointed in October 2016, Cardiff were fighting relegation in the Championship but then, in his first full campaign the following season, he led them to promotion.

But Warnock, who has one year left on his current Cardiff deal, wants assurances that the club will think big this summer when it comes to player investment.

The former Sheffield United and Queens Park Rangers manager is a firm fans favourite among the Bluebirds faithful and he was given a warm ovation at the Cardiff City Stadium last Saturday despite the confirmation of his sides relegation following their home loss to Crystal Palace.

Warnock is now planning ahead for next season and, with work to do on and off the field, he is looking to Burnley as a shining example after Sean Dyches side made an immediate return to the Premier League in 2016 following their relegation a year earlier.

Cardiff is his 15th different club and Warnock has said that, whatever happens this summer, he will be managing somewhere next season.

“We will need two or three signings to get us up there and give us a shout because thats what I want to do,” said Warnock.

“Thats what Burnley did when they got relegated – they signed a few good players, started on their new training ground and came straight back up.”

Yes Ive got relegated and Im sure Ill get cast with that, but I think in the circumstances Ive had a fabulous career.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has delivered a team news update ahead of the final game of Manchester Uniteds season against Cardiff City on Sunday.

Arter has been on a season-long loan from Bournemouth, with fellow midfielder Camarasa on a similar deal from Real Betis.

The boss has pledged to inject some youth into his line-up for the visit of Neil Warnocks Bluebirds with several youngsters involved in first-team training this week. James Garner, Dylan Levitt, Arnau Puigmal, Tahith Chong, Angel Gomes and Mason Greenwood were all working with the senior group on Thursday.

Im aware of what Vincents said, but Ive got my own idea what I want to say to them and try to help the club forward.

There is also a chance Antonio Valencia could make a farewell appearance if he can prove he is match fit. The club captain is out of contract in the summer.

Im sure Victors got a bright future ahead of him and we thank Harry for all his efforts this season.

Ole was asked whether Sunday could be a final match in the red shirt for some of his players and replied: Well, you never know in football. It might be your last game, but it might be the start of some careers as well, of course.

Weve had some young players knocking on the door all season really and well start with one or two of the kids as well.

Chong came off the bench at Huddersfield Town last weekend while Greenwood appears to have recovered from an injury that kept him out of the 1-1 draw.

Valencia has not played for United since 2 January, in the 2-0 victory at Newcastle United, but he has been back in training in a bid to prove his fitness. 

I spoke to Antonio yesterday, revealed the manager. Hes not been fit the five or six months Ive been here unfortunately. Hes really struggled but he feels that he could play a part and I would hope that he gets through today and tomorrow and we could give him a nice send off, because hes been a fantastic servant to the club.

Jesse Lingard could return after being absent through injury while there are doubts over Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial.

Eric Bailly is definitely sidelined with a knee problem, sustained in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Tahith made his fourth senior appearance on Sunday and our Head of Academy believes he can progress further.
