Rumours emerged last week that the former United youth player had been in talks with Chris Wilder over a possible move to Bramall Lane.

A picture of the pair seemingly chatting by the side of the Bramall Lane pitch went viral on Twitter with Morrison’s social media activity also raising eyebrows.

However, Morrison later took to Twitter to explain: “I liked a tweet that made me laugh. The tweet was two shops, Ravel shoe shop & Morrison’s.”

Regardless of the links to Bramall Lane, it seems Morrison is still intent on keeping himself fit after his six month spell at Swedish side Ostersunds came to an end.

The 26-year-old uploaded a picture to his Instagram of himself, Lingard and former United midfielder Larnell Cole alongside the caption ‘Some work with my brothers’.

Lingard then shared a video of himself scoring a wondergoal in the session as Manchester United return to training with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Monday.

Morrison has already had a taste of Premier League football, signing for West Ham United in 2012 as well as loan spells at Birmingham City, QPR and Cardiff.

He eventually joined Lazio in 2015 but has also been on loan at Mexican side Atlas.

However, it was at Manchester United’s youth team where he made a name for himself as part of the wonderkids who won the coveted FA Youth Cup in 2011.
