    Good morning Man Utd fans

    Erik ten Hag is reportedly eager for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United this summer.

    And the new Dutch boss reckons it would be “foolish” to lose such an important player after Ronaldo struck his 24th goal of the season against Brentford on Monday.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reportedly rejected an offer from a Premier League club after his Manchester United sacking.

    But the tactician is now ready for a return to the dugout this summer.

    Norwegian outlet VG claims Solskjaer was approached by the unnamed top-flight side following his Old Trafford exit in November.

    United have reportedly made an enquiry for Reims striker Hugo Ekitike and have joined the long list of clubs fighting for his signature.

    According to ESPN, the Red Devil’s incoming manager Ten Hag wants to secure the 19 year-old-striker to bolster his side’s attack.

    And finally, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has no intentions of leaving Man Utd this summer, according to reports.

    The defender wants to sit down with new boss Ten Hag and see where he fits into the team.

    City weighing up Pogba deal

    Manchester City are weighing up a sensational move for Paul Pogba if he becomes a free agent this summer.

    The French World Cup winner is poised to leave neighbours United later this month after a disappointing six year spell.

    Paris Saint Germain and Juventus remain the most likely destination for the 29-year-old who has turned down all attempts to keep him at Old Trafford.

    But Sunsport reported on Friday that City are on the look-out for a new central midfielder once club captain Fernandinho departs.  

    And they have asked to be kept informed on Pogba’s situation in the coming weeks.   

    He shares the same agency as Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland, who is expected to move to the Etihad this summer.

    Rangnick reveals Lingard absence

    Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has explained why Jesse Lingard didn't feature in the last home game against Brentford.

    He said: "To start with, I think in the last couple of weeks under my tenure, he has played far more games than he used to before I came.

    "Number two, on gameday against Chelsea, he contacted me in the hotel and asked me to release him from the game and release him from the training session the following day or two days after the Chelsea game for some personal, family reasons and I also allowed him to do that.”

    Man Utd eye Richarlison

    Manchester United could make a move for Everton forward Richarlison, according to reports.

    The Brazilian could be picked up for around £50million this summer.

    Fabrizio Romano told GiveMeSport: “Manchester United have been linked to him, and we know they are in the market for new forwards this summer.

    “So, I’m sure they could possibly go to that figure of £50 million-plus what Everton have placed on Richarlison’s head. On his day, we know Richarlison is a world-class striker.”

    Ten Hag desperate for Ronaldo to STAY

    Erik ten Hag is reportedly eager for Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Manchester United this summer.

    And the new Dutch boss reckons it would be “foolish” to lose such an important player after Ronaldo struck his 24th goal of the season against Brentford on Monday.

    The 37-year-old shows no signs of slowing down despite coming in for criticism earlier this term.

    Ronaldo has been one of United’s best players in recent matches.

    And he was the heart of all things in good in the 3-0 win over Brentford at Old Trafford this week.

    However, Ronnie continues to be linked with a move away from United – just one year after his glorious return from Juventus.

    Solskjaer ‘rejected offer from Premier League club

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reportedly rejected an offer from a Premier League club after his Manchester United sacking.

    But the tactician is now ready for a return to the dugout this summer.

    Norwegian outlet VG claims Solskjaer was approached by the unnamed top flight side following his Old Trafford exit in November.

    A dismal run saw United lose at home to rivals Liverpool and Manchester City.

    But a 4-1 defeat away to relegation-bound Watford sealed Solskjaer’s fate, paving the way for Ralf Rangnick to take charge.

    It’s reckoned in the weeks and months that followed, Solskjaer was approached by several clubs from across Europe.

    And one of those was a Premier League side looking to secure its top flight status.

    Premier League managers’ salaries revealed

    ARSENAL have awarded Mikel Arteta a lucrative £8.3million a year deal to keep him at the club.

    But it only makes him the FIFTH highest earning Premier League manager.

    SunSport exclusively revealed in February that Arsenal were preparing to hand Arteta the same salary Arsene Wenger was on during his final year at the Emirates.

    They have now done so – but his new annual wage of £8.3m is still less than HALF of old pal Pep Guardiola's pay packet.

    The Manchester City boss rakes in £19m a year – but is repaying the club in the form of Premier League titles.

    The Spaniard is on course to secure City a fourth league in five seasons – although Liverpool are hot on their heels.

    Rice faces three-match European ban

    Declan Rice faces a three-match European ban after his X-rated tunnel rant at a referee.

    And that spells bad news for Chelsea and Manchester United, who are both chasing the England midfielder this summer.

    West Ham star Rice, 23, blasted Spanish referee Jesus Gil Manzan after last night’s Europa League semi-final defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt.

    Sensational footage captured Rice losing his head in the tunnel after a game which saw Aaron Cresswell and David Moyes receive red cards.

    Rice shouted at the official: “Ref! Ref! it is so poor. All night, it is so bad. How can you be that bad? Honestly.

    “You’ve probably been f***ing paid. F***ing corruption.”

    Ward-Prowse next club odds

    Tottenham are currently the favourites to sign Southampton's free-kick king James Ward-Prowse.

    Sky Bet are currently offering 4/1 odds for the midfielder to sign for Antonio Conte's men, with Manchester United and Newcastle among the other sides linked.

    Ward-Prowse has spent his entire career playing for Southampton, having signed for them initially as an 8-year-old in 2003.

    Since then he has amassed 360 appearances for the club and was made club captain in 2020.

    The 27-year-old holds the record for the second most goals scored direct from free-kicks in the Premier League, behind only David Beckham.

    Man United make transfer enquiry

    Man United have reportedly made an enquiry for Reims striker Hugo Ekitike and have joined the long list of clubs fighting for his signature.

    According to ESPN the Red Devil’s incoming manager Erik ten Hag wants to secure the 19 year-old-striker to bolster his side's attack.

    Ekitike has been compared to his fellow Frenchman Kylian Mbappe and is the highest scoring teen in Europe.

    Declan Rice tipped for transfer

    Declan Rice will leave West Ham for Chelsea or Man United this summer.

    That’s the view of Stan Collymore who told CaughtOffside: “West Ham, unfortunately, crashed out of the Europa League at the semi-final stage on Thursday evening after losing 3-1 on aggregate to Eintracht Frankfurt over two legs.

    “Should the club fail to qualify for either of Europe’s two biggest competitions next season, I wonder what this could mean for their best players. Could the Hammers lose significant first-team players this summer?

    “Well, Declan Rice is the obvious one. Manchester United and Chelsea and I think even the Spanish giants have been talked about in the press, so the clear answer is yes.”

    Maguire in line for selection

    Harry Maguire is in line for a return against Brighton but Marcus Rashford will miss the Prem clash, Ralf Rangnick has revealed.

    Rangnick said: "Harry is back in training, he trained the whole week since the second day after the Brentford game so he will be available for tomorrow and part of the group.

    "Edinson is training, he came on as a substitute (against Brentford). Marcus Rashford will be missing, he's got bronchitis with a high temperature so he won't be able to be part of the group.

    "We have a question mark over Eric Bailly, he called the doctor this morning and has some problems with his back."

    Man United transfer target

    Manchester United are poised to battle Newcastle for Sporting Lisbon wonderkid Goncalo Inacio, according to reports.

    The Portugal Under-21 defender helped his club win the Primeira Liga title last season.

    Newcastle had a £25million bid for the centre-back rejected in January, but Toon scouts have continued to monitor his progress.

    And Lisbon media have now claimed that incoming Old Trafford boss Erik ten Hag has targeted the 20-year-old as part of his rebuilding plans.

    Rangnick on Lingard

    Ralf Rangnick hasrevealed why Jesse Lingard missed Man United's last home game this season.

    He said: "To start with, in the last couple of weeks under my tenure, Jesse has played far more games than he used to.

    "Secondly, on game day against Chelsea, he asked me to release him from the game and training the following day for personal family reasons.

    "With only three subs against Brentford, I had to make a decision between Edinson Cavani and Jesse, or the young Alejandro Garnacho, who I would have loved to have brought on and given a chance to play.

    “I took the decision to bring on Edinson. Had I not brought on him, someone might have asked if it was classless not to bring on Cavani or Garnahco.

    "After two subs, you have to make a decision, and this will not be to the liking of everybody, but this is part of the game."

    Declan Rice's ref rant

    Man United transfer target Declan Rice is facing a three-game Uefa ban after he explosively accused officials of taking bribes after West Ham’s defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt.

    Aaron Cresswell was sent off and boss David Moyes dismissed to the stands as their European dreams came to an end.

    And afterwards their star midfielder exploded at the match official inside the tunnel and now looks set to face Uefa action.

    Tunnel cam footage has now emerged from after the clash, and it shows the furious Rice confronting the Spanish referee Jesus Gil Manzan outside the changing-rooms.

    The England ace blasts: “Ref! Ref! it is so poor. All night, it is so bad. How can you be that bad? Honestly.

    He then turned to walk away and added: “You’ve probably been f***ing paid. F***ing corruption.”

    Evra shocking claims

    Man United ace Patrice Evra has made shocking claims that he witnessed homophobia when at West Ham.

    Evra alleged to Gabby Logan on the Mid Point podcast, reported by The Metro: It’s like you can’t be a gay football player, people will go mad

    "I give the example, when I was playing for West Ham, someone from the English federation came and he said “we need to accept everyone” and the amount of players that were like “no, if some of my team mates are gay they have to leave now. I won’t do any shower [with them]”

    "I stand up and I say “shut up, shut up everyone, can you hear yourselves?” We still don’t accept everyone. In the football world they are not open minded enough and it’s a shame."

    Made a Mej of things

    Hannibal Mejbri was "reprimended" by interim boss Ralf Rangnick following his chaotic six-minute appearance against Liverpool.

    Hannibal managed to pick up a booking in his short time on the field after a number of reckless challenges.

    And while Manchester United legend Gary Neville admitted he was "proud" of the performance, one man who wasn't was Rangnick.

    The 19-year-old was demoted back to the U23s following the game on Rangnick's orders.

    That's according to ESPN, who claim the interim gaffer had words with Hannibal following the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool.

    Being dropped back down to the youth side reportedly came as a punishment for his on-field antics.

    Abramovich’s ‘anti-Glazer’ request

    Roman Abramovich is demanding Chelsea’s new owners commit to not copying the Glazer Manchester United model, MARTIN LIPTON WRITES.

    As part of the detailed discussions with the “preferred bidder” consortium headed by Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly, Abramovich is insisting on stringent conditions.

    The Russian’s appointed brokers, the US-based Raine Group, have told Boehly that he must promise not to pay out dividends or take any management fees for a decade after the completion of the deal.

    That would prevent Boehly from echoing the approach of the Glazers since their 2005 United takeover – and which has sparked consistent and growing protests from fans.

    Boehly, backed by US venture capital investors Clearlake, is closing in on his £4bn takeover despite the late bid by Britain’s richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his Ineos group.

    But Boehly will have to agree to Abramovich’s conditions before final approval – including limits on future debt levels and a commitment to spending £1bn on Stamford Bridge, the academy and the club’s highly-successful women’s team.

    Eyes on the prize

    Ex-Man United star Quinton Fortune claims he was watching Liverpool signing Luis Diaz's progress for years.

    He told The Athletic: "As much as we don’t want to say it, Liverpool – every time they sign a player, you are thinking.

    "Wow, they look like they have done their homework.

    “Take Luis Diaz. I had been watching him for the last few months and years, thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, this is the player United need to sign’.

    "Then Liverpool sign him and you are just thinking, ‘Nooo! How are we missing these players? Come on! Help me out here!”
