Super Eagles striker Umar Sadiq has been highlighted as one of the players that could cause problems for Manchester United as they compete in the Europa League tonight.

The Red Devils will host Sadiq's Real Sociedad side at Old Trafford on Thursday night for their Matchday 1 fixture of the 2022/23 Europa League season.

Ahead of their Europa League clash, Spanish journalist Roberto Ramajo warned Manchester United to take note of Sociedad's latest signing Sadiq as a dangerous player in the Sociedad team.

The Cadena SER Sociedad reporter also listed former Manchester City midfielder David Silva and ex-Real Madrid youngster Takefusa Kubo as other players who might trouble Erik ten Hag's side.

When asked which Real Sociedad players should be watched out for, Ramajo said in an interview posted on the Manchester United official website: "Everyone, as there are very few weak links within the current squad!

"But if I was forced to highlight a few key players, I’d say Mikel Merino, the goalkeeper Remiro, central defender Le Normand, midfielders Zubimendi and Brais Mendez, Japanese creative player Kubo and recently signed Umar Sadiq… and David Silva, of course, who you know very well in the Premier League."

Umar Sadiq is expected to play in part in Real Sociedad's clash with Manchester United after the Nigerian international was named in the 24-man travelling squad for Thursday's clash.
