Get all the latest news and transfer gossip from Old Trafford here…

  • SANCHO LATEST

    Man Utd need to secure qualification to the Champions League on Sunday's final day in order to land Jadon Sancho this summer.

    That is according to The Independent, who claim Sancho's camp are insistent that playing in Europe's elite competition is close to a deal-breaker.

    They say it is also one reason why the deal hasn't been done yet.

    Sources in Germany say Borussia Dortmund are ready to sell the player for the highest price possible this summer.

    The Bundesliga club have already brought in youngster Jude Bellingham from Birmingham City and are working on a deal for Werder Bremen's Milot Rashica.

  • GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Man Utd sensation Mason Greenwood has been tipped to break Alan Shearer's goalscoring record – by the man himself.

    Newcastle and England legend Shearer is the Premier League's all-time leading scorer with 260 to his name.

    He told Match of the Day: “I think in 12 or 13 years time we could be talking about the Premier League record goalscorer.

    “I know there's so many things that can happen in your career but I think Greenwood's that good.

    “He's 18 years of age, he's going to get bigger, he's going to get better.”

    Meanwhile, United are reportedly considering a shock summer swoop for PSG anchorman Idrissa Gueye.

    According to Le10 Sport, United are preparing to make a move for the Senegalese star after being linked during his Everton days.

    But the Red Devils are yet to make a concrete offer for the experienced midfielder, who turns 31 in September.

    Finally, Man Utd have announced that academy defender Ben Hockenhull has joined Championship club Brentford.

    The 18-year-old has joined the Bees’ reserve side on a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

    Hockenhull had been at United since he was nine years old and featured 22 times for the Under-18s side over the last few years.

    A United club statement read: “Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Ben well for the future following his departure.”

  • NOT KEEN ON DEAN

    John Barnes doesn’t think Dean Henderson is ready to replace David De Gea at Man Utd.

    He told BonusBetCodes: “The only reason for Dean Henderson to come back to Manchester United should be for him to be number one.

    “What’s the point for him if he’s only brought back to sit on the bench and put pressure on David De Gea to ensure he plays well?

    “I still think De Gea is a number one, he made a couple of mistakes recently, but so has Dean Henderson.

    “Henderson's mistakes don’t necessarily get noticed at Sheffield United, while mistakes at Manchester United are highlighted under a microscope.

    “I don’t think Henderson is ready to come to United, whether he thinks he’s got a better chance at getting in the team right now or not.

    “The best thing for him to do is to keep gaining experience playing top-level football and showing what he can do at a Sheffield United or another Premier League side, for at least another year.”

  • HEY BIG SPENDER

    Man Utd will not challenge for the title next season unless they spend big this summer, claims Gary Neville.

    He told Sky Sports: “I don't think this Manchester United team at this moment can challenge for the title this season.

    “It needs more additions and more of the right additions.

    “I think that he needs three or four more of those as a minimum before he can even think about getting up into third or second place.

    “My concern isn't really for the front three or the midfield three, it's the depth and the drop that you have beneath that talent.”

  • SHEAR PRIDE

    Man Utd sensation Mason Greenwood has been tipped to break Alan Shearer's goalscoring record – by the man himself.

    Newcastle and England legend Shearer is the Premier League's all-time leading scorer with 260 to his name.

    He told Match of the Day: “[Greenwood’s] A potential superstar.

    “I respect the power, he can do it with his left or right foot.

    “He gets it away early and the goalkeepers have no chance.

    “I think in 12 or 13 years time we could be talking about the Premier League record goalscorer.

    “I know there's so many things that can happen in your career but I think he's that good.

    “He's 18 years of age, he's going to get bigger, he's going to get better.”

  • GIME MORE

    Chelsea have reportedly scouted Atletico Madrid star Jose Gimenez.

    The Telegraph claims the Uruguayan could be the man to shore up Frank Lampard’s defence this summer.

    Gimenez has long been linked with a Premier League switch and was tipped to join Manchester United last year before they opted for Harry Maguire.

    Gimenez was also a target for ex-Arsenal boss Unai Emery but was deemed to expensive by club chiefs.

    RASH MOVE

    Patrice Evra claims Marcus Rashford was Man Utd's worst player against West Ham.

    He said: “I knew it would be a tough game for United but I’m disappointed with some of the performances.

    “There have been some harsh words about Pogba and the penalty incident but I’ve not seen any harsh words yet about Rashford.

    “He had a really poor game today. But West Ham deserve a lot of credit.”

    NEW DEVIL

    Manchester United are reportedly considering a shock summer swoop for PSG anchorman Idrissa Gueye.

    According to Le10 Sport, United are preparing to make a move for the Senegalese star after being linked during his Everton days.

    But the Red Devils are yet to make a concrete offer for the experienced midfielder, who turns 31 in September.

    DONE DEAL

    Man Utd have announced that academy defender Ben Hockenhull has joined Championship club Brentford.

    The 18-year-old has joined the Bees’ reserve side on a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

    Hockenhull had been at United since he was nine years old and featured 22 times for the Under-18s side over the last few years.

    A United club statement read: “Everybody at Manchester United would like to wish Ben well for the future following his departure.”

    PS-PHWOAR

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes goalscorer Mason Greenwood is the real deal – and gets even better when he turns off his games console for a good night's sleep.

    The Man Utd boss said after yesterday's draw with West Ham: “You know when he’s had a good sleep and when he’s stayed up late playing PlayStation.

    “He’s done that today time and again in training. I’m not surprised when it hits back of the net.

    “You run out of superlatives.”

    HENDO THAT ARGUMENT

    Jose Mourinho reportedly reckons Dean Henderson is better than David De Gea as a huge No1 decision looms for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    The Old Trafford stopper had yet another horror show in the 3-1 FA Cup semi-final loss against Chelsea.

    Man Utd fans called for De Gea to be dropped after being beaten too easily for all three of the Blues’ goals.

    Solskjaer has repeatedly defended his No 1 but even he lost patience on Sunday, saying De Gea should have saved Mason Mount’s shot “100 times out of 100”.

    Some supporters have pleaded for on-loan Sheffield United keeper Henderson to replace the Spaniard between the sticks next season.

    And according to the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho is also an admirer of Henderson, having briefly managed him at United.

    'IT'S ABOUT TIME'

    Patrice Evra has begrudgingly congratulated Liverpool over their Premier League title win.

    The former United left-back, who won five league titles at Old Trafford jissed a United flag attached to his sports car.

    He said: “I sincerely would like to congratulate @liverpoolfc 🙏

    “It’s about time guys, the last time you won the league I was 9 years old.”

    ODDS FOR SUNDAY'S SHOWDOWN

    United and Leicester go head-to-head in a shootout for the Champions League on Sunday.

    Punters will be looking for some returns on their bets and we have some tips for the match, right here.

    SunSport's best bets

    • Man Utd to score 2 or more goals: 21/10
    • Red Devils to win: 5/4
    • Both teams to score: 2/3
    • Marcus Rashford on the scoresheet: 9/4

    OLE'S 'PURGE'

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to “purge” the Manchester United squad this summer, according to reports.

    United looked tired in their 1-1 draw with West Ham last night and have three days’ rest before their do-or-die Premier League clash against Leicester City on Sunday.

    Solskjaer made only tow substitutes during the 90 minutes, with first-choice right-back Aaron Wan Bissaka coming on for Timothy Fosu-Mensah.

    And Odion Ighalo came on for Marcus Rashford in the 85th minute.

    According to the Telegraph, United are looking for a winger, a midfielder, a defender and another full-back to turbo charge their squad ahead of a potential title challenge.

    Without it, they will be undoubtedly short of what is required in the Premier League and Champions League.

    SOLSKJAER ON LEICESTER

    The United boss said: “We have the same starting point on Sunday.

    “You can't expect to go and turn teams over and score three or five like we did to have a different scenario for Sunday.

    “When we started after the lockdown, we had to go for it. We really had to go for it – we had to go for goal difference, we had to go for points.

    “The effort has been fantastic and the results have been fantastic.

    “Of course, you'd like to win against Southampton, you concede in the last second, and here today you concede a penalty in the last second of the first half.

    “But we've given ourselves a fantastic opportunity and a great starting point for Sunday.”

    INSTINCTIVE

    Harry Maguire has revealed Paul Pogba said sorry to his United team-mates for his costly handball during the 1-1 draw with West Ham.

    The Old Trafford captain said: “He apologised in there, he held his hands up.

    “He knows he shouldn't do that, but it's a natural instinct to protect yourself, to protect your face.”

    IS HE GANA RETURN?

    Manchester United could turn to former Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye to bolster their midfield.

    According to ESPN, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could turn to the experienced midfielder, who PSG are willing to let go for the ‘right price’.

    Wolves are also reportedly interested in taking on the deep-lying midfielder.

    NEV ON RASH

    During the 1-1 draw with West Ham, Gary Neville said: “Marcus Rashford has had a terrible 15 minutes. In terms of fitness too.

    “Manchester United had been resting players ahead of the FA Cup semi-final but it doesn’t seem to have benefited them tonight. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has gone back to his favoured 11.

    “They’re just not having the best of nights. Physically they just don’t look anywhere near it.

    “Manchester United really have dropped off and with that the quality has dropped off.”

    EV ON RASH

    Patrice Evra and Gary Neville have laid into Marcus Rashford for his performance during United’s 1-1 draw against West Ham.

    The Red Devils dropped two vital points as they prepare for a mouthwatering clash against fifth placed Leicester City in the race for a spot in the Champions League

    Evra said: “I knew it would be a tough game for United but I’m disappointed with some of the performances.

    “There have been some harsh words about Pogba and the penalty incident but I’ve not seen any harsh words yet about Rashford.

    “He had a really poor game today. But West Ham deserve a lot of credit.”

    WHAT UNITED HAVE TO DO

    Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester have just one game left to play in their battle for a Champions League place.

    United are currently third – ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea only on goal difference – Man Utd face a trip to top-four rivals Leicester on the final day.

    While the game will prove tricky, United do have the advantage.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's are one point above Brendan Rodgers' side.

    A draw would be enough to secure them Champions League football for 2020-21.

    Man Utd can LOSE and still grab a top-four spot, too – providing Chelsea are also beaten at home to Wolves.

    PLAYING A DIFFERENT GAME

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rang Mason Greenwood's praises, but has reminded the young United striker to kick his PlayStation habit and focus on football.

    Following his goal against West Ham, the United boss said: “You know when he’s had a good sleep and when he’s stayed up late playing PlayStation.

    “He’s done that today time and again in training. I’m not surprised when it hits back of the net.

    “You run out of superlatives.”

    PREM CYBER ATTACK

    A Premier League club nearly lost £1million when it was targeted by cyber criminals during a transfer deal.

    Hackers infiltrated a club director’s email account as negotiations took place to sell a player to a European team.

    He was conned into revealing his username and password in a phishing attack.

    Using the details, the crooks nearly succeeded in getting the £1million payment diverted to their own account.

    They failed only because the club’s bank clocked the dodgy transaction and blocked it.
