    AS claims the Manchester United and Real Madrid icon could be set for a new club after a disappointing season under Andrea Pirlo.

    Premier League clubs have been given a boost with Real Madrid reportedly preferring to sign Harry Kane over Erling Haaland this summer.

    SER Deportivos claims the Spurs star has emerged as Los Blancos’ No1 target.

    That means the likes of Man United, Chelsea and Man City could be left to battle it out for Haaland.

    The Prem's Big Six are braced for frustration and disappointment over their attempts to force radical change on the top flight.

    Leading clubs now recognise there is no chance they can push through a reduction of the League from 20 teams to 18.

    While proposed revamps of Uefa competitions promise more money from 2024, the Big Six fear they will hit a brick wall in their efforts to get the green light to make more cash from selling rights to their own games either overseas or on club channels.

    And it sets up a further squabble between the Big Six and the rest of the Prem starting at this week’s ‘shareholder’ meeting of the 20 clubs.

    "Maybe I was just one of the ones who stood out a little bit more but I was nothing special.

    "Definitely now is the best period I have had. I have managed to sustain a run of games and keep playing. I am enjoying it and I think that is the most important thing that I wanted to get back, that enjoyment of football. Getting back to doing what I enjoy doing."

    Luke Shaw admitted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has helped him mature at Manchester United.

    He told Sky Sports: "His man-management is second to none. The way he conducts himself in terms of how he speaks to the players, it gets the best out of them. You can see that.

    "He deals with situations perfectly in terms of what is needed, especially at a big club like Manchester United.

    "He takes the pressure off the lads and takes it all himself. Sometimes it is not fair because we are the ones on the pitch and we need to take our fair share too. For me, especially, from what I had before Ole came in, it is a total difference. It has pushed me to a new level."

    He said: “DJ played in the past even without playing minutes at club level.

    “He has now got himself back into the team and worked really hard to get back into the team.

    “He looks a threat every time he plays. I think it was always going to be the case with DJ he went from Swansea playing Championship football to being thrown in the deep end.

    “He has gone into a huge club in Man United and impressed rightly so from the start.

    “But with a young player you are going to get levels of inconsistency and you have to manage that.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, he said: "They can't be blaming tiredness for a loss at Leicester in the FA Cup and their squad not being strong enough.

    "United competing in the Europa League is not good enough, first and foremost, the fans know that, the club know that and Ole knows that.

    "Not progressing in the Champions League was a massive, massive blow for them. Yes, they're going to get in the top four… but so they damn should!

    "He's in a position for me where the Europa League, for me, has become monumental for him and the club.

    "I like him and I'm not one who wants to see managers sacked and I do think they've made some strides forward, but Manchester United have to be doing better.

    "If they don't win the Europa League and only finish in the top four then I think they'll make a change."
