    Ronaldo influence on twins revealed

    Former Man Utd full-backs Rafael and Fabio da Silva have revealed they were tempted to the club by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Rafael explained: “He [Cristiano Ronaldo] called my cell phone and I will never forget that moment.

    “On the display, I don’t know how many zeros [an international number] appeared and I asked: ‘But who is it? I’ve never received a call with these numbers’.

    “And I ran to the bus and immediately said: ‘It’s Ronaldo, it’s Ronaldo. He’s calling to talk to us!’

    “He said: ‘Oh, it’s raining here, it’s raining here in Manchester, as you already know. I’m calling to tell you to sign for Manchester United. I’m sure you’ll enjoy being here.’ We wanted to believe. It was spectacular.”

    McIlroy praises United captain Maguire

    Golf star and Man Utd fan Rory McIlroy has sung the praises of Red Devils skipper Harry Maguire.

    Speaking after the pair golfed together in Dubai, McIlroy said: “I saw him [Maguire] on the range this morning.

    “I was rushing to the first tee because I was late so I didn’t get a chance to see him hit any. It’s great to have those lads out here.

    “He seems like a great leader, a great motivator, the sort of personality that you would want to captain a football team and someone you look up to.

    “He’s actually a lot bigger than I realised standing beside him. Like standing next to him, he’s a big lad, I wouldn’t want to get tackled by him, that’s for sure.

    “Good to see him out there and hopefully, I think the break for everyone involved is probably needed and they can get back and be refreshed and end the season well.”

    More from United’s Brazilian brothers

    Fabio added: "When my brother came back after the first period, after 20 days of training with Manchester United, he was very excited about everything. He's grown a lot.

    "I didn't go with him the first time because I was with Brazil's under-15s, so he went on his own.

    "But when he came back he was really excited, he was talking about everything: how big the training ground was, the players he met, who he had been with Sir Alex Ferguson.

    "He was really excited. To be honest, we're twins, so of course he told me everything and more, but I couldn't feel the same enthusiasm as he did at that time."

    Haa-py to wait

    Erling Haaland is reportedly ready to wait for Barcelona to find the cash needed to sign him as he ‘dreams’ of a move to the Nou Camp.

    The Dortmund striker is one of European football’s hottest properties and is being tracked by a host of heavyweight clubs.

    Among them are Premier League giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Man City, all of whom want to bring the prolific goalscorer to England.

    LaLiga leaders Real Madrid and mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain are also in the mix for his signature.

    But reports suggest Haaland has his heart set on a move to Catalonia at the end of the season.

    The problem there is Barca are skint and would struggle to put together the £300MILLION needed to sign the 21-year-old.

    Edin back to South America

    EXCLUSIVE – Edinson Cavani will be handed a dream ticket back to South America – thanks to Manchester City.

    River Plate plan to offer him a two-year contract at the end of the season, to replace Etihad-bound striker Julian Alvarez.

    And with the Argentine outfit able to meet the majority of £250,000-a-week Cavani’s personal demands, that will see him leave Old Trafford after 18 months as a cult figure.

    Ironically it is City’s move for the highly-rated Alvarez – who United were also interested in – which has left River needing a new attacker for next season.
