    EU BEAUTY

    Manchester United will pick up an average of £75,000 a man if they win the Europa League final on Wednesday.

    It is understood Old Trafford chiefs have set aside a pool of around £4million.

    And that will be handed to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and his backroom staff if they beat Villarreal.

    Some players, like midfielder Paul Pogba, will get closer to six figures for European glory against the Spanish side.

    Once TV money comes in, United could bank £90m from their run.

    They have landed £12m just for reaching the final.

    'HOW'S THAT HAPPENED?'

    Liverpool rose from the dead to snatch third place in the Premier League on the final day of the season – and Gary Neville simply couldn't believe it.

    The Reds lost six straight games at Anfield between January and March as they looked destined to not only miss out on Champions League qualification, but all European football entirely.

    But Jurgen Klopp's squad fought until the bitter end, winning eight and drawing two of their final ten games as they roared back up the table.

    Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on the final day of the season to confirm their spot in the top four.

    But with Leicester and Chelsea both losing – to Tottenham and Aston Villa respectively – the Reds ended up third, just ONE place behind Manchester United.

    Speaking on Sky Sports, a stunned Neville squeaked: "Have they finished third? How's that happened?"

    RON-SONG

    Manchester United are ‘exploring’ a stunning Cristiano Ronaldo transfer return this summer.

    Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking to add to his striking department for months to help close the gap on champions Man City.

    They have been linked with big-money moves for Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

    But Spurs are allegedly determined not to sell their star man to United as he looks set for a huge £150m switch to City instead.

    Haaland is now also set to stay in the Bundesliga for another 12 months leaving Solskjaer to look elsewhere for new firepower as reports suggest Southampton’s Danny Ings has emerged as a target.

    However, a fresh claim by The Athletic states that they could still look to bring their former hero Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

    And those rumours of the Portuguese star’s exit will only intensify after he was dropped for Juventus’ final game of the season last night.

    IT S-AINT A NO

    Danny Ings has refused to rule out a shock transfer to Manchester United or City.

    The Southampton striker is a target for both clubs after impressing with 12 Premier League goals in an injury-hit season.

    He told talkSPORT: "I’ve got a contract until the summer of 2022. I haven’t really acknowledged them [transfer rumours].

    “I’ve just been focused on each game. Ultimately, I’ve still got a contract here. My main focus is to finish the season strong."

    CASH N' HARRY

    Manchester United will compensate Harry Kane over any lost earnings if he forces a transfer from Tottenham, according to reports.

    SunSport exclusively revealed United and City are both ready to offer the England striker £80MILLION in wages to tempt him from Spurs.

    The Sunday Times claim United will also pay him a multimillion-pound signing-on fee to cover any loyalty bonuses Kane, who has three years left on his contract, would forsake if he were to formally hand in a transfer request.

    Kane, 27, has told Tottenham he wants to leave and has openly flirted with an exit – but has NOT put in a written request.

    United hope their compensation package will move them ahead of City and Chelsea in the race.

    The club's England stars also plan to charm Kane at the Euros and lure him to Old Trafford.

    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    Chelsea could look to steal Jadon Sancho from under the noses of Manchester United.

    According to the Daily Mirror, however, the Blues are looking to test the waters with a bid in the region of £80million.

    The star winger made a “gentlemen’s agreement” with Dortmund that he will be allowed to leave in the summer if an interested party meets certain demands.

    Juan Mata will not be drawn in any discussions about his future and remains focused on Wednesday’s Europa League Final against Villarreal.

    The Spaniard is out of contract in the summer but proved his worth after scoring in the 2-1 win over Wolves.

    He told Sky Sports: “In three days we have an important game which is where my mind is. I still feel I can play good football.

    “I know what I want. I’m still hungry to play football."

    Meanwhile Andrea Pirlo sparked Cristiano Ronaldo exit rumours after dropping him for Juventus’ clash with Bologna.

    The Old Lady headed into the away fixture needing to win to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

    In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest games in Pirlo’s reign, he sensationally left Ronaldo on the substitute bench.

    It didn't matter as Juve when on to win 4-1 and seal a top four finish.

    Ronaldo has been linked with a return to both Manchester United and Real Madrid.

    PIRL OF WISDOM

    Andrea Pirlo has fuelled Cristiano Ronaldo exit rumours after dropping him for Juventus’ clash with Bologna.

    The Old Lady headed into the away fixture needing to win to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

    In what is undoubtedly one of the biggest games in Pirlo’s reign, he sensationally left Ronaldo on the substitute bench.

    The Portuguese ace is the league’s top scorer with 29 goals.

    But his exclusion, just four days after winning the Coppa Italia, will raise huge doubts over his future.

    Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Ronaldo is not injured and it is a ‘technical decision’ made by Pirlo.

    It is only the fifth time in three seasons as a Juventus player that Ronaldo has been benched.

    'NEED EDUCATING'

    Rio Ferdinand has revealed he was subjected to a vile monkey chant while working at Wolves’ clash with Manchester United.

    West Midlands Police later confirmed that a man had been arrested in connection with the abuse at Molineux.

    The Red Devils legend, 42, was in attendance on Sunday for the final day of the Premier League.

    Despite old club United securing a 2-1 away win, his day was ruined by one scumbag, with the culprit now in police custody.

    Ferdinand shared the shock racist abuse he had received via his Twitter account.

    The former centre-half wrote: “The last couple weeks, it’s been unreal to see fans back.

    “However to the Wolves fan who has just been thrown out for doing a monkey chant at me.

    “You need to be dismissed from football & educated. Come meet me & I will help you understand what it feels like to be racially abused!”

    OLE OUT

    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appeared to have taken a swipe at the Premier League after the Red Devils beat Wolves at Molineux.

    United will compete in the Europa League Final on Wednesday against Villarreal, who wrapped up their domestic campaign yesterday.

    This gives Unai Emery's men an extra day to prepare for the Red Devils and Solsljaer suggested that the Premier League should have followed LaLiga's example.

    The United boss said: "Yeah of course we've got Wednesday in mind.

    "I thought it was quite poignant [sic] that LaLiga move all their games to the day before so Villarreal can play their full strength team just to prepare for the final.

    "I think we could look after ourselves more as well, could get some help. So I had to make these changes"

    IMPORTANT MATA

    Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes there's value in keeping Juan Mata at Old Trafford due to his influence backstage.

    Ferdinand told BT Sport: "I think he's earned the right to have a choice if he wants to go somewhere he can relax and enjoy his football.

    "You never know, they could extend his contract here.

    "He's got a great calming influence within that dressing room and there will be young players looking at him who watch him on a day-to-day basis"

    SANCHO STEAL

    Chelsea are planning a steal for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window.

    Sancho has been linked with a move to Manchester United ever since last year and came close to moving to Old Trafford in the summer.

    So far, no official bid has been made for the England international.

    According to the Daily Mirror, however, the Blues are looking to test the waters with a bid in the region of £80million.

    The star winger made a "gentlemen's agreement" with Dortmund that he will be allowed to leave in the summer if an interested party meets certain demands

    MATA OF TIME

    Manchester United star Juan Mata wouldn't be drawn in any discussions about his future and remains focused on Wednesday's Europa League Final against Villarreal.

    Mata told Sky Sports: “In three days we have an important game which is where my mind is. I still feel I can play good football.

    “I know what I want. I’m still hungry to play football.

    “I thought it was a good performance. We made a lot of changes with some young players who showed they could play at this level.

    “We have a very important game on Wednesday. This is good preparation, both physically and mentally.

    “He [Anthony Elanga] is a very good player. He has a good attitude and he works hard in training. I’m very happy for him"

  • Kostas Lianos

    SOLSKJAER REACTS

    Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is "very happy" with second place and the fact his team remained unbeaten away from home in the Premier League.

    Solskjaer said: “I’m very happy. We created chances and got the win we deserved.

    “Elanga could have had two before. But he was confident enough to get in there again. He’s got a bright future ahead of him.

    “Our home form hasn’t been the greatest but to go a season undefeated [away from home] is something to be proud of.

    “We’re talking to Juan Mata [about a new contract]. I don’t give him enough game time but he’s a top professional”

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been explaining the reasons behind his starting XI.

    The United boss told Sky Sports: “We’ve got Wednesday in mind. I had to make these changes.

    “Harry Maguire is still walking very gingerly. He’s travelling. I’ll give him until Wednesday afternoon, but I don’t hold my hopes high.

    “Dean Henderson is ready for a game again. He’s had a good season and I want him to show his personality behind a team that hasn’t really played together. It will be a test for him.”
