    BIG MESS

    Gary Neville has slammed the Premier League's punishment of the Big Six clubs who attempted to join the European Super League.

    Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and the two Manchester giants have each been given fines of just over £3.6million, which they have accepted.

    They have also agreed to punishments of a 30-point deduction and £25m fine if they attempt another plot similar to the breakaway plan in April.

    Neville is furious at the sanctions, labelling the Premier League 'an absolute embrassment'.

    The versatile defender is primarily a centre back but can also play on the right and in midfield.

    Previous reports have also linked White with Spurs, Liverpool and United.

    He’s rated at £50million.

    MORE EXPECTED AT EURO 2020?

    Paul Pogba scored a stunner when United beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage in January.

    He's already won the World Cup – can he lead France to European glory too?

    It could be a big summer for the midfielder.

    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    The Big Six, including Manchester United, have accepted Premier League fines of just £3.5m each for their part in the European Super League fiasco.

    But Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and the two Manchester giants have agreed they would face £20m penalty fees and 30-point deductions if they joined any future rebel scheme.

    The decision, likely to be fiercely contested by the 14 clubs left out of the coup attempt, is League chief Richard Masters’ attempt to draw a line under the debacle.

    Masters, who enlisted the backing of Prime Minister Boris Johnson to help foil the breakaway in the space of 48 tumultuous hours, dismissed all calls for points deductions for the Six.

    He also recognises that, for all their plotting, the Big Six remain the driving force of the Prem’s global success story.

    And by getting them to sign up to future draconian penalties, Masters and fellow League bosses believe they have put the Super League genie back in the bottle for ever.

    Meanwhile, United are likely to sign Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho for nearly £30million less than he'd have cost last summer.

    Dortmund demanded £108m for Sancho last year and the Red Devils refused to match that asking price.

    According to the Daily Mirror, however, this time around the Manchester giants look set to finally secure their target.

    Dortmund are reportedly set to accept £81.5m for the 21-year-old England international.

    And Atletico Madrid have reportedly offered Saul Niguez in exchange for Manchester City ace Bernardo Silva in a blow to United.

    The Red Devils have long targeted the Spanish midfielder but Atletico’s desire to sign Silva could send Saul to their rivals.

    According to The Times, Atleti are willing to send club stalwart Saul in a direct swap for City star Silva – in a move that could benefit both clubs in terms of Financial Fair Play.

    POGBA LINK

    Manchester United ace Paul Pogba had a funny moment with France team-mates Kingsley Coman and Presnel Kimpembe.

    Pogba interrupted the players' interview with InfoSport and Kimpembe told him: “We’re talking about Paris,” before Coman added: “Yeah, you’re Parisian aren’t you?”

    “Yeah, so?” the midfielder responded to which the Bayern Munich star said, in reference to PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi: “Nasser, any contact?”

    The 28-year-old seemed shocked and said no before fleeing the scene – the France international has been linked with an exit from Old Trafford as his deal expires next year

    McTOMINAY PREDICTION

    Former Scotland international Stuart McCall has predicted that Manchester United ace Scott McTominay is going to stand out at Euro 2020.

    McCall made the same prediction for Liverpool star Andy Robertson and Arsenal ace Kieran Tierney.

    He told Not the Old Firm: “I think the good thing is looking at the squad, it’s quite young.

    “We have four top class players – Andy Robertson at Liverpool, Kieran Tierney at Arsenal, John McGinn at Aston Villa and Scott McTominay at Manchester United – and they are all quite young”

    BR-ITE PROSPECT

    Arsenal have joined the transfer race for Brighton star Ben White amid the summer transfer window.

    According to the Daily Mirror, Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta is a “big admirer” of White after his impressive campaign with the Seagulls.

    The centre-back amassed 39 appearances across all competitions and earned an England call-up by Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate.

    However, the 23-year-old has also attracted interest from Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in the summer transfer window

    LUKE OUT

    England boss Gareth Southgate is considering using Manchester United ace Luke Shaw at centre-back.

    That is according to the Daily Telegraph, who claim Southgate is facing a defensive dilemma ahead of the Euro 2020 opener against Croatia.

    Southgate is reluctant on using a four-man defence without the injured Harry Maguire.

    Therefore, the Three Lions boss is thinking about deploying a back-three with Shaw at left centre-back next to JohnStones and Kyle Walker

    SHOWED DE-TERMINATION

    Manchester United ace Donny van de Beek was playing through the pain before his Euro 2020 omission.

    That is according to De Telegraaf, who claim Van de Beek's groin injury was weeks in the making.

    The attacking midfielder had been taking painkillers for weeks in order to stay fit for the summer's Euros.

    However, the Netherlands international couldn't overcome the issue and has been ruled out of the tournament

    TRIPPIER BID REJECTED

    Manchester United have submitted a bid for Atletico Madrid star Kieran Trippier.

    However, Atletico have rejected United's opening offer for the former Tottenham ace.

    That is according to Football Insider, who claim the Red Devils offered roughly £10million for the England international.

    Reports suggest the Manchester giants have been keeping tabs on the right-back as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering trying Aaron Wan-Bissaka in central defence

    VARANE BOOST

    Real Madrid star, and Manchester United transfer target, Raphael Varane's asking price has been dropped.

    That is according to Mundo Dportivo, who claim that a bid of €50million (£43m) would be enough to land Varane.

    That would cut down the defender's release clause by about £20m, which is a huge boost for United who are looking for the perfect player to partner up with Harry Maguire at centre-back.

    Los Blancos are reportedly keen to cash in on the France international if he doesn't agree on a new deal

    MAGUIRE UPDATE

    Manchester United ace Harry Maguire was the only player missing from England’s training earlier today.

    The Three Lions kick-off Group D against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday and manager Gareth Southgate had all of his players available for practice except for Maguire.

    The United defender is set to miss the Euros opener with an ankle ligament injury he suffered at Aston Villa last month.

    The 28-year-old centre-back is continuing rehab and there is no official word yet regarding a return to full fitness

    SHAW REDEMPTION

    Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes confidence and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are the secret that led to Luke Shaw rediscovering his form.

    Ferdinand told the Daily Express: "Confidence. A manager that believes in him.

    "He may have changed a few things in his personal life as well, be it preparation.

    “Whatever he’s done he’s done remarkably well. He’s shown great character, which you need in times of adversity and I think he’s done really well”

    GETTING THEIR MAN

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Manchester United are still in contact with Jadon Sancho's camp but no official offer has been made to Borussia Dortmund.

    Romano also confirmed Chelsea are interested in Erling Haaland but Dortmund won't sell, especially if Sancho leaves, unless the Blues make a "crazy bid".

    He tweeted: "Man United are in contact with Sancho’s camp on personal terms but still no official bid. BVB want €95m.

    "Chelsea strong interest in Haaland is confirmed – but BVB have no intention to sell Erling this summer, especially if Sancho leaves. ‘Crazy bid’, only way!"

    NEVILLE REACTS

    Manchester United great Gary Neville is not satisfied with the penalty that was issued to the Big Six over their involvement in the European Super League.

    Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham will pay just £20million altogether – which equates to an average fee of approximate £3.5m per club.

    The aforementioned sides have also agreed to further punishments if they ever try a similar breakaway in the future, which would include a penalty of more than £20m and a 30-point Premier League deduction.

    But Neville, who was immensely critical of the ESL project, described that decision as an “absolute embarrassment”

    IT KANE HAPPEN

    Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Red Devils stars will be asking Harry Kane for his thoughts about a potential move to Old Trafford during England's Euro 2020 preparations.

    Ferdinand told Daily Mirror: "Yeah that happens. That happened when I went to the World Cup with Nicky Butt, Becks [David Beckham] in the United team. Talked about me coming to United.

    "That was speculation in the paper. That happens, every tournament, every get together. Players talking to players. I’m sure managers have said ‘speak to him for me and find out what he’s like’.

    "Butt just said to me ‘would you come United?’. And I said ‘yeah I would. I want to win trophies’. That probably filtered back to the manager, they know if they want to make a bid or not. That’s how it works.

    "All players are like fans. If you were in a squad with a player who you think is brilliant and you want him to come to your club you’d be saying ‘come on, mate. Come to us. Get on to your club and your agent and try to manoeuvre a move to get to us"

    HAALAND RECAP

    Just to remind you of how things stand regarding Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland.

    Chelsea have apparently made Haaland their top transfer target this summer with the Dortmund forward keen on a move to Stamford Bridge.

    The Blues are looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season after winning the Champions League.

    However, the north Londoners and every other suitor will have to cough up a whopping £150million for the Norway international
