    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Manchester United will land a huge cash windfall if West Ham join them in the top four this season.

    SunSport understands there’s a clause in Jesse Lingard’s deal which will net United a £500,000 bonus if they secure Champions League football.

    The agreement could help West Ham seal a permanent transfer for the 28-year-old, who is valued at around £20m and also wanted by Borussia Dortmund.

    Elsewhere, SunSport report on Rangers and Brighton registering an interest in Reading star Josh Laurent over a potential transfer this summer.

    And SunSport also understands Aston Villa, Spurs and Newcastle are targeting Ghanaian defender Abdul Mumin at Portuguese side Vitoria.

    Centre-back Mumin, 22, who joined from Danish side Nordsjaelland last year, would cost about £15million.

    An England national team coach has been axed by the FA after being involved in a boozy car smash.

    Goals guru Allan Russell, 40, who worked with Harry Kane in the 2018 World Cup, was a passenger in his Audi RS6 when it rammed a Vauxhall injuring its driver.

    He was fined £2,000 after admitting letting his brother Simon drive who was twice the limit and had no insurance.

    A friend said: “He was a happy-go-lucky guy. He’ll never be the same.”
    In match action, a brace from Roberto Firmino helped Liverpool beat Manchester United 4-2 at Old Trafford.

    Before the game, fans staged a fresh anti-Glazer protest at Old Trafford, which passed by largely without incident.

    A Liverpool ‘team bus’ was blocked by pedestrians in the city but proved to NOT have any players on board.

    The squad arrived without incident with United driving in seven hours before kick-off.

    Everton drew 0-0 at Aston Villa in the other Premier League match.

    ‘I’LL BE BACK’

    Britain’s oldest footballer is vowing a back injury will not stop him playing — aged 85

    Sunday league player Dickie Borthwick hopes his 77-year career is not over.

    But he has been sidelined for months and has given himself until August to recover.

    He said: “I have thought it could be over but I am hoping it will clear up. I still love the game and I want to play again.

    "If it wasn’t for my injury I know I could still strike a ball and get up for a header.”

    BLUE BEAUTY

    Thomas Tuchel will be handed a £150million transfer warchest by Chelsea.

    The Blues board are delighted with the job the German has done since he arrived in January.

    Chelsea have serious money to spend this summer as they continue their bid to get back to the top of the Prem.

    A proven goalscorer is seen as a huge priority, with Olivier Giroud, 34, and 23-year-old Tammy Abraham likely to be surplus to requirements.

    The Stamford Bridge outfit have been monitoring Erling Haaland’s situation at Borussia Dortmund and also keeping a close eye on their former striker Romelu Lukaku at Inter Milan.

    EXCLUSIVE

    England national team coach has been axed by the FA after being involved in a boozy car smash, writes Adam Bennett.

    Goals guru Allan Russell, 40, who worked with Harry Kane in the 2018 World Cup, was a passenger in his Audi RS6 when it rammed a Vauxhall, injuring its driver.

    He was fined £2,000 after admitting letting his brother Simon drive who was twice the limit and had no insurance.

    Vauxhall Corsa motorist Danny Moss, 43 — an off-duty ambulance driver — suffered life-changing injuries in the smash in Shirburn, Oxon, last year, county magistrates heard.

    A friend said: “He was a happy-go-lucky guy. He’ll never be the same.”

    Allan, a coach at Aberdeen, masterminded England’s successful set-piece goals in 2018.

    EXCLUSIVE

    Rangers and Brighton have registered an interest in Reading star Josh Laurent over potential transfer this summer, writes Duncan Wright.

    Scottish champions Rangers believe the 26-year-old midfielder could be the ideal signing to strengthen the spine of their team as they look to prepare for Champions League football next season.

    But Brighton are also in the hunt and see the former Shrewsbury ace as a potential replacement for in-demand Yves Bissouma, who is wanted by Liverpool and Arsenal.

    Seagulls boss Graham Potter is resigned to losing Bissouma at the end of the season.

    And he has been impressed by the way Laurent has taken to a deeper midfield role in his first year in the Championship.

    Laurent made a major impact in the second tier and was voted Reading’s player of the year having scored three goals and missed just one match.

    EXCLUSIVE

    Jesse Lingard is being eyed by Borussia Dortmund over a sensational switch – and could be used in a deal to bring Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, writes Daniel Cutts.

    The England winger has had a stunning loan spell at West Ham.

    And Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.

    His £100,000-a-week wage demands are an issue though, and are putting doubt on him staying at the London Stadium beyond this season.

    Dortmund are keeping tabs on the 28-year-old and are big admirers – which United may use in a move for one of their top targets in Sancho.

    CUP FOR IT

    Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland ran rings around RB Leipzig as Borussia Dortmund lifted the German Cup tonight.

    Sancho and Haaland both scored twice in a 4-1 win in Thursday’s DFB-Pokal final.

    The England winger, strongly linked with a summer move to Manchester United, made mincemeat of Leipzig’s defence to put Dortmund ahead after just five minutes.

    It was then Haaland’s turn to get in on the act when he scored in the 28th minute.

    Sancho effectively put the game to bed moments before half-time when he walked the ball into the back of the net following a barnstorming counter-attack.

    BEARD AND NOW

    Matt Beard hopes to restore Liverpool Women to their former glory after announcing his return as the club's manager. 

    The former West Ham gaffer is back in Merseyside six years after leaving the team to coach US club Boston Breakers before spells with the Irons and Bristol City. 

    And the ex-interim Robins boss beat 160 applicants to the top job to manage the former WSL giants. 

    Beard, 43, said: “When you are working here and living and breathing it and what the football club means to the city and its fans, I’ve experienced that from the success we had in my first period here

    “My family and I loved our time in Liverpool and we’re really looking forward to going back.”

    ARN HE’S OFF

    Arnau Puigmal is reportedly set to QUIT the club – just four years after the Red Devils beat Barcelona to his signature.

    The 20-year-old has been eyed by LaLiga side Almeria with him failing to make the grade at United.

    MailOnline reports that Puigmal 'is now destined to return to Spain'.

    His contract at United is up in the summer, and despite impressing for the U23 side, he has failed to make the step up into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first-team plans.

    Plenty of people in their late 20s play Football Manager – but not many have the chance to recreate it in real life.

    And that is exactly what 28-year-old Will Still is doing, writes Simon Yaffe.

    It was in January that Still – who is a huge fan of the management simulation video game – became the Belgian First Division’s youngest-ever head coach when he was appointed at Beerschot.

    Still said: “I spent hours on Football Manager, especially during the summer holidays when I was at school.”

    MEND A BROKEN HEART

    Chelsea fans have been given the opportunity to have Mendy's name on the back of their shirt… only the Manchester City ace.

    The awkward gaffe was made on their club website following the launch of their new shirts for next season.

    Fans were handed the opportunity to select which star they wanted on the back of their jersey with an entire list of names available.

    Those include the brilliant ladies' side who are on track to win a historic quadruple.

    But for some bizarre reason amongst those, eagle-eyed fans spotted Benjamin Mendy's name on the list. Just two above him is Chelsea's goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.

    Hartson said: "It's a big job but I like the sound of Eddie Howe. I'm more than happy to back him.

    "He has got Premier League experience, plays good, entertaining football and on the front foot.

    "He did very well at Bournemouth even though they went down eventually but Eddie will see this as a massive opportunity."

    AND THE NEW

    Felipe Anderson is reportedly set for a miserable return to West Ham this summer.

    Brazilian outlet UOL claim Porto have no intention of signing the midfielder on a permanent deal following a poor spell on loan from the Hammers this season.

    The report adds that Anderson’s return to West Ham is ‘confirmed’ following the Dragons’ decision not to buy the £36million star.

    The playmaker is said to be waiting for other offers to get him out of West Ham permanently, with a return to Italy listed as a possibility.

    “He made me think a lot about games and opponents. So thank you so much.”
