REPORT: Jayde Riviere returning to full fitness amid Manchester United links
Canadian international Jayde Riviere has been linked to a move to English giants Manchester United, as she continues to work and return from an injury that has ruled her out since September.
Riviere, 21, quickly rose through the Canadian international ranks after her debut in 2017, making 36 appearances for her country, scoring one goal. She was also a part of Canada's gold medal-winning 2020 Olympics team.
Riviere joined USL W League outfit AFC Ann Arbor in April of 2022, making four appearances before suffering an injury setback which required surgery in September, from which she is now working to recover.

BBC Sport's Emma Sanders reported that Riviere has been linked with a move to the WSL. Later reports out of England suggest Manchester United manager Marc Skinner could be interested in pursuing Riviere's signature, as the Reds look to strengthen their squad with the signing of a free agent like Riviere.
This report follows a number of Canadians making transfer waves, as Clarissa Larisey swapped Celtic for BK Hacken and Julia Grosso of Juventus also reportedly attracting interest from Manchester City.
