    Don't wreck it, Ralf

    Former Manchester United ace Owen Hargreaves warned interim manager Ralf Rangnick that he 'has to be careful' when it comes to managing Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Hargreaves told  Optus Sport: "I don't think Ralf will be taking Cristiano off again any time soon.

    "Ronnie let him know, 'Just keep me on, I'm fit, I'm probably the greatest athlete at 36 years old in the world'. He doesn't want to be taken off.

    "Rangnick has to be careful, because he has dropped the club captain Harry Maguire, Ronnie is on his side but he was frustrated that he came off, there is no need to take him off.

    "You want to keep Cristiano on side if you can"

    United 'fear' Ronaldo exit

    Man United are reportedy dreading the financial ramifications Ronaldo's potential exit this summer would have on the club.

    The Red Devils are said to be planning a tour of the United States later this year.

    And the tour won't have the same appeal without Ronaldo present, according to the Daily Star.

    United's pre-season tour is reportedly worth up to £20million through club sponsors, merchandising and tickets for fixtures.

    However, a large chunk of that revenue would be acquired with the help of Ronaldo's 'CR7' brand.

    So United's economic hopes could be plunged into chaos if the attacker decides to leave.

    Tell the truth about Martial

    Rio Ferdinand has urged Man United to come clean over what happened with Martial.

    On his latest episode of FIVE LIVE, Ferdinand said: "If Martial isn't telling the truth here – and I'm not casting any dispersions – but if he's not telling the truth when he says he's never refused to play or disrespected the club.

    "If he did refuse then someone at that football club needs to come out and absolutely put this to bed.

    "They need to give pure clarity, put a line in the sand, put a flag down and say; 'This is us and this is where we're at'."

    Brighton beat Prem giants for Beadle

    Brighton beat Manchester United AND Chelsea to the signing of England Under-18 star James Beadle.

    The 17-year-old has been tipped to become the Three Lions’ senior No 1 and the Seagulls swooped to land the promising teen from Charlton right under the noses of the Premier League big boys.

    Brighton completed the £400k deal at the turn of the year.

    And East Londoner Beadle – who moved into local digs down south – signed pro terms on a two-and-a-half year deal despite technically still being a second-year scholar.

    SunSport reported in October Chelsea were eyeing a £400k move.

    But the West Londoners weren’t the only Prem giants keeping tabs with Manchester rivals United and City also trying to sign him in recent months.

    Dembele 'refuses' Barca's demands

    Ousmane Dembele has hit back at Barcelona claiming he still wants to play for the club.

    Barcelona announced the winger was available for sale this month after rejecting multiple offers of a new contract.

    Dembele's current deal expires in the summer but he revealed he is still committed to the club despite a stall in negotiations.

    He said in a statement: "Gossip about me has been piling up for four years. It's been fours years since people have spoken for me, shamefully lied with one sole purpose – to harm me.

    "As of today it's over. From today I will speak honestly without giving in to any kind of blackmail.

    "My message is transparent. I forbid anyone to give the impression that I am not involved in the sports project.

    "I forbid anyone to attribute intentions to me that I have never had. I forbid anyone to speak for me or my representative, whom I fully trust.

    "Still under contract, I am fully involved and at the disposal of my club, my coach.

    "I have always given everything for my colleagues and also for all the partners – it is not now that this is going to change. I am not a man who cheats and even less a man who has a habit of giving in to blackmail.

    "As you know there are negotiations. I let my agent handle it, it's his turf.

    "My field is the ball, playing football, sharing moments of joy with my team-mates. Above all, let's focus on winning."

    Why Ronaldo does 'Siuu' celebration

    Ronaldo's signature celebration has become a viral hit after his move back to Manchester United in August.

    From school playgrounds to courts at the Australian Open, kids and athletes alike have been mimicking the Portuguese by throwing their arms out and yelling 'Siuuu' at the top of their lungs.

    But it's certainly nothing new and has been used by Ronaldo during his time at Real Madrid and Juventus, as well as when scoring for Portugal.

    Infact it's almost a decade since Ronaldo first performed the celebration against Chelsea in it's current form during a 2013 pre-season friendly.

    And the United forward revealed when it came about as a way to feel more connected to the Real Madrid fanbase.

    Speaking in 2019, he said: "I started to say ‘si’, it’s like ‘yes’, when I was in Real Madrid.

    “When we would win, everyone would say ‘siiiii’ and so I started to say it. I don’t know why, it was natural."

    Medvedev blasts copycat Ronaldo fans

    Danil Medvedev claims fans at the Australian Open who have been re-enacting Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘Siuu’ celebration must have a ‘low IQ’.

    The Russian said after beating Nick Kyrgios: “It’s not everybody who’s doing it, but those who are doing it probably have a low IQ.

    “I enjoyed to win. It’s not easy to play against the crowd. I feel like these matches, they are not easy to play, but they stay as fun matches afterwards, because in the end we gave the crowd a big show.”

    Move-ling along swiftly

    Arsenal legend Kevin Campbell reckons Lingard would be a perfect fit for Newcastle.

    He told Football Insider:"Lingard is proven. He is an England international who has showed his class at both Manchester United and West Ham.

    “Man United did not want to lose him last summer. For whatever reason, he hasn’t got the game time he would’ve liked this season but now he has another opportunity to go out on loan.

    “At Newcastle he can play football, score goals and show Gareth Southgate what a good player he is ahead of the World Cup.

    “He is an exceptional player. I think that would be a really good move for all parties.”

    Closing Lin on Jesse

    Manchester United are ready to sell Jesse Lingard ‘at the right price’ with the star ‘tempted by the big offer’ from Newcastle.

    The Magpies have already secured Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid and Chris Wood from Burnley during the January transfer window.

    We reported yesterday that the Toon are prepared to pay all of Lingard's £100,000-a-week wages in order to bring him to the club until the end of the campaign.

    Now Sky Sports journalist Pete Graves says a permanent deal ‘is possible’ and that the midfielder is interested in joining the relegation strugglers for a ‘big offer’ and that the ‘right price’ would convince the Red Devils to sell.

    The England international's contract expires at Old Trafford in the summer – meaning this is likely to be the last opportunity for the Manchester giants to receive some kind of financial remuneration for the player

    "I saw him [McTominay] in a restaurant last week and just spoke to him briefly about working hard and playing hard and that's all you hear about him.

    "He's an honest kid, he wants to do well and improve. You saw in his game today where his intensity and desire, you could see it from the first minute.

    "At Manchester United, you need a certain amount of ability but personality and character are what gets you through and enables you to stay at this club for a long time.

    "He's shown that in a time of need when this club has been shaky at the best of times"

    Moving Zakwards

    Bayern Munich have joined Arsenal and Manchester United in the transfer race for Borussia Monchengladbach star Denis Zakaria.

    Zakaria has entered the last six months of his contract and is unwilling to consider staying at Gladbach once it expires.

    The Bundesliga side are open to cashing in on the midfielder whilst they still can, with United keeping tabs.

    Reports suggest, the Red Devils had already offered the player a contract and would rather pay a fee this month than wait until the summer.

    But, Bayern are now seriously considering a swoop and are the current favorites to secure the Switzerland international's signature.

    According to Sky Sports, the German champions are hopeful of signing the 25-year-old on a free transfer in the summer as a replacement for Corentin Tolisso, whose contract also expires in June
