    GOOD MORNING UTD FANS

    The Red Devils are one of the clubs that can afford to sign Erling Haaland, according to reports.

    Dortmund are said to be looking for an offer of around £150m to part company with the Norwegian this summer – and The Athletic claim that fee would be in the club's price range.

    However, whether the deal can be pushed over the line or not depends on how willing United are to go back into business with Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola.

    Raiola has exasperated senior figures at Old Trafford by claiming Paul Pogba wants to leave on numerous occasions.

    Meanwhile, Southampton would like to revisit a loan move for Manchester United whizkid Brandon Williams.

    Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl wants more depth in the full-back areas and likes Williams’ ability to play both on the left and right.

    Hasenhuttl tried to borrow Williams, 20, from United in January but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to let him go.

    Southampton are hopeful Solskjaer will reconsider his stance for next season though, with Williams starting just three games this term.

    And finally, West Ham will reportedly do whatever it takes to try and sign Jesse Lingard from Manchester United permanently this summer.

    The England star has rediscovered his top form on loan at the Hammers as he scored six goals in eight league games.

    A senior West Ham source told Sky Sports: “We will do whatever it takes to sign him.

    “He’s been outstanding for us.”

    THE PRICE IS WRONG

    Manchester United are closing in on Jadon Sancho, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

    However, the Red Devils have yet to agree a free with Borussia Dortmund.

    Romano told the Here We Go podcast: "Manchester United have everything set to sign Jadon Sancho this summer – they are just waiting for the final price."

    FATHER TALK

    Charlie Savage hopes to go one better than his old man — and make the grade at Manchester United.

    But the 17-year-old midfielder says Scott McTominay, not his dad Robbie, is the main inspiration behind his goal to reach the Old Trafford first team.

    He told SunSport: “The main inspiration for me is Scott — he’s the best with us. He comes over to talk to us. He had it difficult in the youth team.

    “He didn’t play many matches but he just kept going and he proved it’s not always the standout players who make the first team.

    “Sometimes it’s the players who might have had a back seat but they keep pushing and pushing.

    “Scott, Marcus Rashford and also Brandon Williams all inspire us to improve and move forward.”

    DAVID DE GOER

    David de Gea is reportedly set for a summer axe – and has been offered to Europe’s elite.

    The Manchester United goalkeeper, 30, continues to battle for his place in the team with Dean Henderson.

    Henderson started his seventh game in a row against Brighton on Sunday.

    And it is thought De Gea has had enough with the Spaniard ready to look elsewhere for a new club.

    According to the Daily Mail, the goalkeeper’s representatives are in touch with some of the top clubs on the continent to sound out potential suitors.

    STICKER SOCCER GLORY

    A footie-mad dad has finally got his huge sticker album collection up to date — with a 1998 World Cup England badge.

    Simon Livermore, 45, paid £11.41 in an online bidding war for the elusive crest.

    He has now completed every World Cup and Euros album produced by Panini since 1974.

    And he is already busy filling in his Euro 2020 sticker album.

    Brighton and Hove Albion fan Simon said: “Half the fun is the hunt. I’ve needed two for France 98 for absolutely forever but the badges, the foils, are particularly hard to come across.

    “I was always led to believe there was equal numbers printed, But I swear it’s not the case.”

    GARNER INTEREST

    Nottingham Forest manager Chris Hughton is refusing to speculate on the long-term future of Manchester United loanee James Garner.

    He told NottinghamshireLive: “At this moment, my thoughts are very much on what he’s giving us and how he’s helping us in the best way he can.

    “It’s also about us helping his development and us having the best relationship with Manchester United we can.

    “And then we’ll see what happens.

    “He’s not our player, so it’s very difficult to talk about him in any terms.

    “All I can say is the relationship with United has been very good and we’re delighted with what James is giving us.”

    BYE-BAI

    Manchester United are reportedly interested in defensive reinforcements this summer if Eric Bailly leaves the club.

    Eurosport claim Inter Milan are keeping tabs on the Ivorian's contract situation, who has just over a year remaining on his deal.

    The report adds that Sevilla's Jules Kounde and Villarreal’s Pau Torres are United's main targets should Bailly leave.

    DOR OPEN

    Manchester United will be hoping their good deed will be rewarded after letting Borussia Dortmund use their facilities ahead of a crunch Champions League encounter.

    Erling Haaland and Co have trained on United's old The Cliff complex ahead of their tie with neighbours Man City this evening.

    Located in Salford, the United first-team haven't trained at The Cliff since moving to Carrington in 2000.

    But the facilities are still used for some academy games while the women's team also train there.

    DEVIL MAY CARE

    Former Manchester United star Terry Gibson has warned the Reds of the dangers of taking Granada lightly.

    He told the club's website: "United can't afford to take them lightly.

    "They're going to play like an away team at home. They'll look to play on the counter-attack, which they're good at.

    “They're a fluent team who change tactics a lot but they won't be as naive as Real Sociedad were; they won't open up and allow themselves to be hit on the counter-attack.

    "They'll look to keep it nice and tight and hope to be in the tie for the second leg.

    “It's a dream tie for Granada, it's clearly the biggest game in the history of the club.

    "This is their second season back in La Liga. They were kind of like a Sheffield United last season in that they were a massive surprise."

    BELE FLOP

    Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that he would like Ousmane Dembele to STAY at the club, amid links with Man United.

    Following the Frenchman’s late winner against Real Valladolid last night, Koeman said: “I would like Dembele to stay, he is an important player for us.

    “He showed his quality with his game and the goal against Valladolid. The key is that he has physically improved and has been able to play a lot of games in a row.”

    DUBLIN AND OUT

    England looks set to be handed at least four more Euro 2020 games – with Uefa braced for Dublin to effectively pull out of hosting on Wednesday.

    And that would hand Gareth Southgate and his Three Lions the prospect of an extra match on home soil this summer, although NOT at Wembley.

    Uefa’s deadline for the 12 scheduled venues to confirm they are able to stage games with crowds is close of business on Wednesday.

    The Irish capital is believed by senior Uefa figures to be the most likely city to be unable to give Euro chiefs the guarantees they have sought, leaving the Aviva set to be stripped of its games.

    And if so, it is now expected that the four games due to be played in Ireland will be switched to England, as the FA is already in advanced planning for seven games at Wembley.

    THE TEMP-BEST

    Jesse Lingard is proving to be one of the signings of the season.

    His loan switch to West Ham was a masterstroke from David Moyes, who is getting the very best out of the Manchester United midfielder.

    The red-hot form got the 28-year-old a return to the England squad and could see him go to the Euros.

    SunSport looks at some of the best loan signings in the Premier League era – an elite list Lingard is on course to join, particularly if he can fire West Ham into the Champions League HERE.

    JESS WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED

    By SunSport's Jordan Davies

    Jesse Lingard is leading the Premier League charts since arriving at West Ham on loan.

    Since his West Ham debut on February 3 after a January window switch, only Tottenham’s Harry Kane has been involved in the same number of goal involvements.

    Lingard’s six goals and three assists in eight appearances sees him with nine goal involvements.

    That’s THREE more than United star Bruno Fernandes, as well as bettering Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez.

    Only Harry Kane has scored more with seven, but has one less assist than Lingard in that time.

    In terms of assists, Lingard’s three assists is the same as City’s Phil Foden and Tottenham’s Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son.

    Lingard is also proving to be efficient in front of goal, needing just 23 shots to reach nine goal involvements.

    That is SEVENTEEN less than Kane, two less than Leeds’ Patrick Bamford and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and one less than Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins.

    WELL I NEV-ER

    Gary Neville admitted he would have played for arch-rivals Arsenal if Manchester United decided to sell him.

    He told Sky Sports' Off the Script: "If you’d said to me, in a perfect world, in my years of playing, which clubs in the Premier League have the tradition, a proper club? Arsenal would be No 1.

    "The tradition of Highbury, I felt they did things the right way. Also in the Premier League, I like Aston Villa and Newcastle.

    "In Europe I admired Juventus and Bayern Munich. I respected them as football clubs. Bayern were meticulous in their preparation, so internationally, it would be them."

    LIGT-BULB MOMENT

    Matthijs de Ligt will be available for £130million next summer, according to reports.

    The Juventus defender, 21, is thought to have a release clause in his contract.

    But according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, it does not kick in until July 2022.

    And that could have the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona on red alert to make a major swoop at the end of next season.

    HOME DISCOMFORTS

    Bruno Fernandes has issued a rallying cry to his Manchester United team-mates to 'stop dropping as many points as we do at home'.

    The Portuguese playmaker has been instrumental in helping United into second spot in the Premier League.

    Speaking to FourFourTwo magazine, the 26-year-old said: "It’s tough in England, because the games are so tight.

    "Every team genuinely has a chance to win the match. It’s 50/50 before every game, and we see it with the results. But we’re doing better.

    "We can’t drop as many points as we do at home, but we’ve been in second, and at the start of the season there weren’t many people who were saying United would be second.

    "After a few games and a bad start, nobody was saying United could reach the top of the table, but we ignored what people were saying on the outside.

    "We knew what we had said on the inside, we had confidence that things would improve, and they did.

    "We still have to be the best United we can, but we have improved."

    POSITIVE MATA

    Manchester United star Juan Mata opened up on his relationship with 'positive' manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    The Spaniard told the UTD Podcast: "Of course, I heard much about him as a player. About that goal, about the many goals. So we had a meeting between us, the team, and they said: 'Listen, it's probable that Ole's going to come. He's going to take care of the team until the end of the season. He's coming from Molde in Norway.'

    "As soon as he came in, you could see the positivity. You could see the Manchester United DNA. He knew everyone, he felt like a proper United fan, and he was happy and smiley and full of energy. Until today. So we stay with him, and I think that's a good sign of things going okay.

    “I feel young, honestly, in my body and in my mind, but obviously I've been playing in the club, and in English football and professionally for 12-13 years now, and so that gives me experience to – especially in difficult situations – behave in a certain way or give advice to the youngsters or something like that, and I think he values that also.

    “Me, as a player, what I can give on the pitch, but also that I will try my best off the pitch for the new players that come."
