    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Manchester United are one of six clubs set to be offered Juventus forward Paulo Dybala.

    United target Marcos Llorente's asking price has been set at £103million with Atletico Madrid playing hard ball for their highly-rated midfielder.

    The Red Devils have held talks with AC Milan over a permanent move for defender Diogo Dalot.

    United suffered an injury scare after forward Anthony Martial limped off the pitch during France's win over Kazakhstan.

    David de Gea's future looks bleak at Old Trafford if he does not start the game against Brighton, according to a former United keeper.

    Paul Pogba has finally got his £300,000 Rolls Royce back – after leaving it in a police car pound for months.

    Former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has been slated for his angry antics during Portugal's draw with Serbia.

    SunSport readers have voted Roy Keane as the Premier League's greatest captain ahead of Chelsea's John Terry.

    Bruno Fernandes claims he could not choose between midfielders Paul Scholes and Roy Keane, insisting he would select both in his United dream team.

    COULDN'T CAR LESS

    Manchester United star Paul Pogba has finally got his £300,000 Rolls Royce back – after leaving it in a police car pound for months.

    The France midfielder ran up storage charges estimated at £5,500 as he left the car unclaimed for 270 days.

    Pogba was stopped in his Wraith Black Badge near Manchester Airport in June because it had Monaco-registered plates.

    The World Cup-winner‘s car was put on a low loader and taken away, leaving him with a £150 towing bill.

    A source said: “It’s incredible to think Paul took so long to sort out getting his car back.

    “It’s not a little runaround — it’s a stunning limited edition £300,000 Rolls-Royce which anybody would love to sit in, let alone own.

    “Instead, it gathered dust because Paul took absolutely ages to sort the necessary paperwork.”

    CAPTAIN FANTASTIC

    Roy Keane is the greatest Premier League captain in history, according to SunSport readers.

    We devised a poll asking readers to decide who wore the armband the best.

    On the list were Arsenal's Tony Adams, Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, Keane, Vincent Kompany, Wes Morgan, John Terry and Patrick Vieira.

    Around 2,600 people had their say and there was a resounding winner.

    United's former hard man Keane took 36 per cent of the votes ahead of Terry in second who had 19 per cent.

    Kompany, who won 10 major domestic trophies, was third followed by Gerrard, Vieira and Adams who all had 9 per cent of votes.

    UP FOR KEEPS

    Could David de Gea's time at Old Trafford be nearing an end?

    Former Manchester United goalkeeper Chris Turner thinks that will be the case if the Spaniard does not start against Brighton.

    Turner told the Mirror: "Henderson looks like he could be United’s keeper for the next 10 years.

    “I’m not sure when the shift will come, but if Dean keeps his place against Brighton after the international break the writing will be on the wall for De Gea.

    “Let’s be clear, though, De Gea has done nothing wrong. He is still a world-class keeper and has proved himself time and again."

    RONBELIEVABLE

    Cristiano Ronaldo has been slated for his angry antics during Portugal’s draw in Serbia.

    The former Manchester United superstar slammed his captain’s armband down after his late goal was ruled out.

    Former Portugal international Fernando Meira said: “It’s clearly a goal, but Ronaldo can’t throw the armband on the ground like that.

    “Cristiano’s reaction is natural, but it’s not acceptable from the national team captain.

    “You can’t throw the armband on the ground and head into the dressing room while the game is still going on.

    “It’s not acceptable behaviour for a player of his stature.”

    KEANE ON THEM

    Bruno Fernandes could not choose between Paul Scholes and Roy Keane – so included them both in his dream Manchester United midfield.

    The United star backed himself to fit perfectly alongside the two Old Trafford veterans.

    Answering a Q & A on the club website, Fernandes said: "This is a difficult one, eh? I think the most difficult until now. So, I don't know.

    "If I can have both, better, because I need the guy behind me kicking everyone and recovering balls, like Roy Keane does, and have the quality to give the balls to the guys up front."

    HARD TO FERGET

    Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed his best and worst moments from his 26 years in charge of Manchester United.

    The greatest manager of all time had a few lows but mainly highs during his historic spell as boss of the Red Devils.

    Ferguson told the club website: "There are always going to be regrets, but the thing is always to look forward.

    "Tomorrow’s another day. I always did when we lost a game. The next day was better, without question.

    "But in terms of the regrets, the 1994 team I had, the back four all seemed to grow old together, and that’s a terrible thing to happen to the manager because these guys were fantastic for me."

    Reflecting on his best moment, Ferguson said: "Oh, the day we won the league for the first time. God almighty! I couldn’t get out the car park.

    "There were thousands of them. I went there in the afternoon because they wanted a photograph taken with the trophy and I went there at about 3pm.

    "There were thousands there and I couldn’t get out of my car, they were engulfing me. It was unbelievable."

    DYB-ING WAR

    Manchester United and City are among SIX clubs set to be offered Paulo Dybala as part of a sensational summer swap deal, according to reports.

    Juventus have long been keen to move on the Argentine international, 26, with the forward close to a move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2019.

    'PENALDO AND PERNANDES'

    Jose Enrique has jokingly ripped into former Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo and current Red Devil Bruno Fernandes.

    The post came after Diogo Jota was confirmed to be injured following his two goals for Portugal against Serbia on Saturday night.

    Enrique ribbed Ronaldo and Fernandes for what he deemed to be Jota 'carrying' the team.

    DALOT DEAL

    Manchester United and AC Milan have opened talks over the permanent transfer of Diogo Dalot.

    The 22-year-old is currently on-loan at the Serie A club from Old Trafford and has appeared 24 times this term.

    Now The Metro claims Milan have tabled a £12million offer to try to sign the Portuguese defender permanently.

    Dalot is happy in Italy and is believed he would be open to extending his stay there.

    However, Milan – like most teams across Europe – are struggling to splash huge sums on players, resulting in their bid being short of the £19m United handed over to Porto in the summer of 2018.

    He is on around £40,000-a-week, well within the wage structure Milan can afford with other team members on a lot more than him.

    SHAW THING

    Gareth Southgate has been praising Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw ahead of England’s game against Albania this evening.

    The Three Lions coach said: “He’s been very good. Luke played in the first Under-21 game I took charge of.

    “There’s never been any doubt in our mind about Luke’s quality.

    “It’s been great to see him playing on the front foot as a full-back, with his defending and he’s been really ambitious with his attacking.

    “He looks like he’s in good condition to drive forward, he’s got excellent quality with the ball, it’s a good moment for him.

    “He’s aggressive against his wingers, he’s difficult to play against one-vs-one, he’s getting better with his cover defending for his centre-backs.

    “He’s got to find the level he’s shown at his club and play his game.”

    MAGUIRE PRAISES RASHFORD

    Harry Maguire has praised Marcus Rashford for accepting his England call-up despite being injured prior to the international break.

    The Man Utd man will play no part in the World Cup qualifiers and Maguire has now given a bit of insight into the thinking behind Rashford accepting the call-up from Southgate.

    He said: "It’s a bit strange with everything that’s going on, with the pandemic.

    "That shows a lot from Marcus, it was a little reminder of the way we work, the principles we’ve got.

    "It’s really important to show the group is together and Marcus has come even though he probably knew in his mind he wasn’t going to be fit, it shows the spirit between the players."

    GILLESPIE ON MAN UTD

    Former Man Utd player Kevin Gillespie has spoken about why he feels the club should go after Erling Haaland.

    He told Football Fancast: "City are so far ahead at the minute, get Haaland, he’s the hottest property probably in world football at the minute, his stats are incredible.

    “He’s a natural finisher, he’s young as well, and he’s going to come into that Man City team and score a lot of goals because of the players he’d have around him, so I think it’s important that United compete with Man City should he become available.

    “I think he will become available with whatever clause he has in his contract but I suppose money talks and whatever’s offered, Dortmund might cash in.

    “Certainly, they need to be showing that they are interested in a player like him, and obviously there’s been talk about Haaland before with Man United, that he is one that is on their radar.”

      The 49-year-old recalled a private conversation with Ferguson in an interview with TalkSPORT.

      Yorke revealed: "He said 'We want you here at the football club, we’ve watched you a few times, we know how good you are, you just need a platform to excel'.

      "I knew that I was coming up against some excellent players, like Teddy, Ole and Coley.

      "I wondered where I was going to be playing in this team. So he said, 'I want you as my No 9'.

      "I said, 'What about all the rest of them?' And he said, 'You are my number one'. That was enough. That was all I needed to hear from him."

      BIG DECISION

      Here's a question then United fans. Mbappe, Haaland or Kane?

      Don't think it's a stretch to say you'd have any of them. But who would be your preferred option?

      OPENING THE DOOR?

      Harry Kane may well have just opened the door to a possible transfer this summer.

      Here is what the Spurs striker – who has been linked to Man Utd – said about the speculation over his future.

      He told Sky Sports: “I think that’s a hard question to answer right now (whether the speculation will impact his performances for England).

      “It’s important that all my focus is on the two England games coming up now and the rest of the season with Spurs and then the Euros. To be thinking about speculation or rumours would be damaging in terms of my own performance.

      “I always like to be focused on one goal and one job and that’s to finish strong with Spurs, win these qualifiers with England and hopefully go on and have a great Euros. Look, I try to stay out of that speculation as much as possible.

      “I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there.”
