    SANC-HOPE

    Manchester United have been given hope of signing Jadon Sancho next year.

    United were found wanting in their pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund winger this summer, after failing to pay the German outfit's £108million asking price.

    But Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has hinted United may have a chance of landing their man if they renew their interest at the end of the season.

    Watzke said: “In this industry, you can never say that a player is completely unsellable.

    “I heard and read everywhere in the spring that Sancho was gone.

    “But he's here. We had an agreement with him.”

    VAN DE START

    Manchester United fans have been raving about new boy Donny van de Beek after his brilliant substitute cameo in yesterday's thumping 4-1 win.

    Van de Beek came off the bench in the 76th minute and played a key role in the build-up to Fernandes' goal to give United a late lead.

    Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said the midfielder will get more game time and has urged fans to be patient.

    Solskjaer said: “He’ll get his game-time. He’s been fantastic in the group, I think you see today and in training, he’s so neat and tidy, I don’t think he lost the ball once.

    “It’s about finding the balance in the team. We’ve won 4-1 today and you’re asking why I didn’t start one of the players. He’ll have a very good impact on the team.”

    PUIG THAT ONE OUT

    Man Utd youngster Arnau Puigmal starred with a superb free-kick in a draw with Arsenal's Under-23s side.

    Saturday's match-up of the Premier League reserves finished 3-3 with Spanish midfielder Puigmal grabbing a brace.

    One of the moments of the match at Boreham Wood's Meadow Park came when Puigmal lined up a free-kick from 20 yards out.

    The 19-year-old sweetly hit the ball to the near-post, curling inwards to beat the diving goalkeeper.

    And he was naturally pleased with his first United goal of the campaign, uploading the clip to his Instagram alongside a picture of his celebration.

    NOTE YET

    Donny van de Beek found himself in the middle of an awkward moment as he prepared to come on against Newcastle last night.

    The Manchester United midfielder is not used to being an impact substitute – as proved by the strange encounter.

    Fourth official Oliver Langford put his arm across Van de Beek as he prepared to come on for Daniel James in the 76th minute.

    A note in the referee's hand caught the player's eye and he awkwardly motioned to collect it, momentarily believing it was for him.

    Van de Beek quickly cottoned on that he was simply being told to wait before entering the field of play.

    IRN BRU

    Bruno Fernandes has hailed the mentality of his Man Utd team-mates after they came from behind to beat Newcastle 4-1.

    He told MUTV: “We knew it would be a difficult game against Newcastle in their home. After the goal we conceded, we played better but we need to improve.

    “We can’t concede as many goals as we have at the start of the season, and I think everyone agrees. The most important thing is that we win. We are happy for the game today.

    “I think the team has big characters and big players. What happened against Tottenham can’t happen again. We play for such a big club and such a big team.

    “This club deserves better than that. Everyone needs to be better, starting with me, I need to look at myself first and then at what the group needs to do better.

    ”Today it was perfect, after that defeat. I think we need to continue improving, don’t concede goals, as I said before, and keep scoring.“

  • Jake Lambourne

    AAR YOU SERIOUS?

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka has spoken of his first senior goal after scoring during the 4-1 win against Newcastle.

    He told MUTV: “It's a good feeling, quite an inspiring one. It was a good team performance as well.

    “I just wanted to smash it. The keeper had been saving a few shots during the game so I thought 'this time, let me just roof it.'”

    Commenting on Wan-Bissaka's strike, Bruno Fernandes said: “We didn’t know he could shoot.

    “It’s difficult to believe that he can score because we never see him shoot. We were joking to him in the dressing room, saying that we all thought he wanted to cross and he had a bad one and scored.”

    DAN THE MAN

    Former Man Utd striker Danny Welbeck has joined Brighton on a free transfer.

    The 29-year-old has joined the Seagulls on an one-year deal after he mutually agreed to terminate his contract at Watford.

    Commenting on his arrival, Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “We are delighted to have Danny joining us. He will complement our existing striking options.

    “He's got an undoubted pedigree, and he is quick and technically very good.

    “He will add to our attacking threat and we are thrilled to add another player of his experience and quality.”

    'LOOKS LIKE MAN UTD'

    Usain Bolt enjoyed United's performance yesterday.

    The fastest man that ever lived paid tribute to the Red Devils' performance as they hit three late goals to crush Newcastle.

    And United's Twitter account responded accordingly.

    SWITCH IN APPROACH

    Stats show how United increased the amount of attacks they sent down the left wing during the second half at Newcastle.

    All four goals came late on thanks to attacks on the left side, but United were frustrated in the initial 45mins.

    OLE REACTION

    Manchester United needed a longer pre-season to prepare for the Premier League campaign but Saturday's 4-1 win over Newcastle United is a sign that they are firing on all cylinders again, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

    Solskjaer was pleased with his team's response to their 6-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur before the international break.

    The Norwegian said: “After the last result, that made this game even bigger. Then we were 1-0 down in two minutes, that made it even more so.

    “But we showed great resilience, great character to come back, handled the setback really well and we were led by an inspirational captain.

    “We don't want to use it as an excuse, but we needed pre-season. We wanted to get to this international break with more points than we have, but now we know our season started today, because we've come up to the speed of the game.”

    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shook up his squad against Newcastle – but it paid off.

    United came from behind to win 4-1 with Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Marcus Rashford scoring.

    Meanwhile, have put Real Madrid’s Uruguay superstar Federico Valverde on their hit-list.

    The midfield magician has pushed his way into the Spanish side’s team this season and started to justify his big reputation.

    Valverde, 22, has been tipped for the top for years but is slowly proving his quality in LaLiga — and long-term admirers United are on red alert.

    And with Paul Pogba openly admitting he likes the idea of a move to Real Madrid in the future, United are keeping an eye on Valverde in case a swap becomes possible.

    Valverde has a £640MILLION buyout clause, which shows how much Real think of him.

    THE REAL DEAL

    Man Utdhave put Real Madrid’s Uruguay superstar Federico Valverde on their hit-list.

    The midfield magician has pushed his way into the Spanish side’s team this season and started to justify his big reputation.

    Valverde, 22, has been tipped for the top for years but is slowly proving his quality in LaLiga — and long-term admirers United are on red alert.

    And with Paul Pogba openly admitting he likes the idea of a move to Real Madrid in the future, United are keeping an eye on Valverde in case a swap becomes possible.

    Valverde has a £640MILLION buyout clause, which shows how much Real think of him.

    It would be unusual for United to sign a player from a major European rival at his age but Pogba could be a very intriguing pawn in the game.

    FULL TIME: NEWCASTLE 1-4 MAN UNITED

    A late goal blitz secured victory and added some glamour to the scoreline as United ran out winners at St James' Park.

    Solskjaer's team selection gamble paid off handsomely and it's a much needed – and well deserved – three points with the PSG game to come in the week.

    LATE WINNER

    Bruno Fernandes in the 86th minute! Devastating United counter-attack! That may just be enough for victory.

    2-1 to the away side.

    THE MISSING PIECE

    Confirmed: It was Fernandes' first missed penalty having scored the first 10 since he joined the club in January.

    Still 15 to go on Tyneside.

    PENALTY SAVED

    Jamal Lewis appears to catch Marcus Rashford and, after some VAR intervention, Craig Pawson points to the spot.

    But then Bruno Fernandes MISSED the penalty, with Karl Darlow making the save.

    I don't believe Fernandes has failed to score from the spot yet for United, but he's picked a bad time to miss.

    There's half an hour to go and Newcastle show no signs of rolling over.

  • Kiro Evans

    HALFTIME: NEWCASTLE 1-1 MANCHESTER UNITED

    Very decent first half for both sides who go in at half time level.

    Luke Shaw's own goal after two minutes gave the home side the lead before Harry Maguire equalised.

    Bruno Fernandes had one chalked off for offside.

    Big second half to come and it can all be followed here.
