Man Utd in for £16m Arambarri, Lingard for Sancho transfer EXCLUSIVE, Keane slams Bruno Fernandes, Haaland updates

JESSE LINGARD could be used as bait in Manchester United's pursuit of Jadon Sancho, SunSport can exclusively reveal.

Dortmund are keeping tabs on 28-year-old Lingard and are big admirers – which United may use in a move for one of their top targets in Sancho.

The 21-year-old ex-Man City ace is high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish list again, after a failed swoop last summer.

The German giants are understood to want £100m – but that price could be brought down with the inclusion of Lingard.

Meanwhile, Roy Keane said Bruno Fernandes "spent the half of the night crying on the pitch" during United's 4-2 defeat by Liverpool.

Club legend Keane said: "I don’t want to be critical of Fernandes but he spent half the night crying on the pitch.

"United players were looking for Liverpool to kick the ball out of play but you only stop with a head injury."

    'JESSE HAS ENJOYED HIMSELF'

    West Ham boss David Moyes is hoping that on-loan Man Utd player Jesse Lingard considers a permanent move to the club in the summer.

    But has admitted that he is not sure how realistic a move is.

    “I am not actually sure how realistic it is,” said Moyes.

    "Obviously, I think Jesse has enjoyed himself, I hope he has… we have enjoyed having him and he is Manchester United’s player so they can decide what to do with him – and if they want to let him go then let’s hope he would consider us as one of his options.

    “We have enjoyed having him and I am sure he has enjoyed being here as well, he is getting a lot of accolades and is back in the England squad.

    “I hope he goes on to make the Euros and in time we will find out if Jesse is going to be a Manchester United player or if he will play for somebody else.”

    FERGUSON BACKS SOLSKJAER

    Former Man Utd manager and cub legend Sir Alex Ferguson has backed current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Ferguson believes that Solskjaer understands the fundamental principles that the club is built on.

    “I think Ole was always very communicative,” Sir Alex told the BBC: “Even when he was on the bench – and he spent a lot of time on the bench!

    “He would take notes of training sessions and he had a will and way forward that he wanted to be a manager.

    “For a club like Manchester United, it's a results industry. Without question. If you don't get results, questions are going to be asked.

    "He is getting results and has really done very well and, which is really important for this club, is to introduce young people.

    “He has given young players a chance. I think that will always be the foundation of Manchester United.

    "From Matt Busby, from Alex Ferguson to what Ole is doing – the young guys, if they're good enough, play them. It's never a problem at this club.”

    Jesse Lingard has shared a video on Twitter thanking the fans for voting him Player of the Month, as well as voting for his goal against Wolves to win Goal of the Month.

    The Man Utd player – on loan at West Ham – preached a message of hope, and told fans to 'be yourself'.

    "This is for anyone who has ever been told they're not good enough, or that they need change who they are to fit in.

    "I would always say stay true to yourself, be yourself, you know, keep dancing, keep doing what you love and I'm sure you'll reach your goals in the long run."

    This is for anyone who has ever been told they're not good enough, or that they need change who they are to fit in.

    LINGARD STAY?

    Former Leeds United midfielder Carlton Palmer believes that West Ham won't be able to afford Jesse Lingard this summer.

    And that could mean that Lingard stays at Man Utd.

    Speaking to Football FanCast, Palmer explained: " don’t think they’ll be able to get Lingard on a permanent deal. I think he’s played his way back into the Manchester United starting line-up.

    "He we will have to see how he does, but he will probably start at the Euros.

    “Manchester United are a massive club and West Ham just don’t pay that type of money on a regular basis and David Moyes knows that.”

    The Red Devils have been on the receiving end of two-straight Premier League defeats in a matter of days.

    And last night's loss came at the hands of top-four hopefuls Liverpool.

    Solskjaer said: "Harry [Maguire] has been really important for us so of course we’re going to miss him but he’s out so we have to deal with that.

    "It’s about regrouping and building our own confidence again as we have two games and a final.

    “The attitude was right and the focus was fine, we were ready for it. We didn’t build on the good times.

    "We should have gone more for it at the start of the game. Sometimes we let them off the hook and let them play out.

    “Tuesday. We need to find ourselves straight away. We need to build that momentum and confidence. We should go into that final ready.”

    LING AND A PRAYER – EXCLUSIVE

    By Daniel Cutts

    Jesse Lingard is being eyed by Borussia Dortmund over a sensational switch – and could be used in a deal to bring Jadon Sancho to Manchester United.

    The England winger has had a stunning loan spell at West Ham.

    And Hammers boss David Moyes is keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.

    His £100,000-a-week wage demands are an issue though, and are putting doubt on him staying at the London Stadium beyond this season.

    Dortmund are keeping tabs on the 28-year-old and are big admirers – which United may use in a move for one of their top targets in Sancho.

    The 21-year-old ex-Man City ace is high on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wish list again, after a failed swoop last summer.

    The German giants are understood to want £100m – but that price could be brought down with the inclusion of Lingard.

    Dortmund are keen to get as much as possible for Sancho, as they have to hand City 15 per cent of the overall transfer fee.

    GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS

    Manchester United fans staged another Old Trafford protest against the Glazer family ahead of the game with Liverpool.

    A large gathering of supporters made their voices heard, 11 days after the first pre-game protest led to the derby being postponed.

    This time no fans entered the stadium amid a heavy police presence and the evening passed by fairly peacefully.

    One Liverpool team bus was blocked in by cars and pedestrians but it proved to NOT be the vehicle containing the squad, who arrived without drama.

    In the game, Bruno Fernandes smacked a cross into Nat Phillips to put United ahead.

    But Liverpool were on top by the break as Diogo Jota smartly flicked home a leveller before Roberto Firmino’s brace.

    Marcus Rashford got United back in it but Mohamed Salah’s late sealer meant a poor night for the hosts.

    In transfer news, the Red Devils will cash in if West Ham can qualify for the Champions League.

    SunSport understands there’s a clause in Jesse Lingard’s loan deal which will net United a £500,000 bonus if they finish in the top four.

    The agreement could help West Ham seal a permanent transfer for the 28-year-old, who is valued at around £20m and also wanted by Borussia Dortmund.

    FERGIE TIME

    Sir Alex Ferguson is "grateful for three extra years" after being "terrified" of losing his speech and memory following a brain haemorrhage.

    The legendary ex-Manchester United manager says his attitude to life has changed after collapsing in 2018 and needing emergency surgery.

    He said of his new outlook: "Probably not taking things too seriously in terms of knowing that you're vulnerable…

    "If I go tomorrow I'll be grateful for three years extra I had. That's a feeling I've had for quite a while now."

    RIP JORDAN

    Liverpool paid a touching tribute to nine-year-old fan Jordan Banks, who died after being hit by lightning while playing football.

    Reds' players warmed up in "JORDAN 7" shirts before facing Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

    Jordan was struck on a pitch in Blackpool on Tuesday and died soon afterwards in hospital.   

    Liverpool vice-skipper James Milner, who was not in action at United, also sent a special message in memory of Jordan, having praised him in January for astonishing fundraising for charity.

    Next to a picture of a smiling Jordan, Milner posted:  "A special boy taken far too soon. RIP Jordan, YNWA."

    The pair both work as pundits for Sky Sports having sat on opposite sides of the Manchester United/City divide.

    And Richards told Jamie Carragher on The Greatest Game podcast: “I didn’t really used to like Gary Neville, to be honest, because of the rivalry between the Reds and the Blues.

    “When I worked with him I was like ‘actually, he’s a nice guy’, but playing against him – he was horrible!”
