Tom Cleverley is playing in the FA Cup final later this afternoon, in what could be his last game for Aston Villa. Cleverley spent the pre-season with United and has today claimed he loved training alongside Juan Mata and Ander Herrera.

I learn from watching Barcelona. I like that style. I like the theory of possession. I enjoy playing in training with people like Juan Mata and Ander Herrera at United. Carles Gil here is exactly the same mould. Maybe we don’t appreciate possession as much in this country.
