    HAA & SOL

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's new deal could put Manchester United in pole position to land Erling Haaland next year, writes PHIL THOMAS.

    United narrowly missed out on the Norwegian hitman when he left Red Bull Salzburg for Borussia Dortmund 18 months ago.

    Haaland turned his back on the chance to move to Old Trafford then with so much uncertainty over whether Solskjaer would stay in charge.

    The 21-year-old has a close relationship with his fellow countryman and was unwilling to take the chance on moving to Manchester if the manager was about to be sacked.

    Both the striker and his father, former City star Alf-Inge, admitted they did not want to risk working under a boss they had no vibe for if Solskjaer was axed.

    The United chief gave Haaland his debut as a teenager at Molde when he was managing the Norwegian outfit.

    BLADES EYE GARNER

    Sheffield United are plotting a loan move for impressive Man Utd youngster James Garner, according to reports.

    The 20-year-old is set to leave on loan this summer, and a move to Sheffield United could see them help in their bid to get promoted back to the Premier League.

    Nottingham Forrest – where he had a loan spell – are also interested.

    ‘SPURS CAN MATCH KANE’S AMBITION’ 

    Former Tottenham player Ledley King believes Spurs can match star man Harry Kane’s ambition. 

    He told PA News: “We know he is one of the best strikers in the world. Harry is ambitious and I know the club is very ambitious.

    “That is as far as it goes, I wouldn’t like to say what is going to happen next, all I know is the club is very ambitious and Harry is himself, so that’s it.”

    Man City are reportedly leading the race to sign the England captain.

    But Man Utd also remain interested.

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Manchester United star Andreas Pereira has become a shock target for Fenerbahce, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's new contract has put the club in pole position to land Erling Haaland.

    The 21-year-old has a close relationship with his fellow countryman and was unwilling to take the chance on moving to Manchester if the manager was about to be sacked.

    But now Solskjaer's future has been secured, United top brass hope that will leave them favourites to sign Haaland next summer.

    Paul Pogba can see a future at Old Trafford but may wait until after the transfer window to make his mind up, according to reports. 

    Rumours suggest the 28-year-old, who has one year left on his existing deal, is excited by the direction the club is going in following the signing of Jadon Sancho.

    Pogba is also thought to be impressed by the imminent arrival of Raphael Varane after United agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign the player.

    Varane reportedly hopes to travel to Manchester this weekend, although he will need to quarantine following his landing before undergoing a medical.

    The defender has confirmed he is leaving the Spanish capital ahead of his imminent transfer with a farewell message to the Real fans.

    Varane posted on Instagram: “These last few days have been charged with many emotions, feelings that I now want to share with all of you.“

    After 10 incredible and wonderful years at Real Madrid, a club that I will always carry in my heart, the day has come to say goodbye."

    GARNERING MOVE – EXCLUSIVE

    Manchester United midfield ace James Garner is a target for Sheffield United.

    Garner returned from a spell at Nottingham Forest, who would like him back, but the Blades have joined the race and are very keen on landing a loan deal.

    Championship Blades have a strong relationship with Old Trafford having taken England keeper Dean Henderson in the past and are also willing to fund the move.

    Garner, 20, would play a big part in boss Slavisa Jokanovic’s plans and could cover the Bramall Lane club in case of late bids for stars like Sander Berge.

    Norwegian midfielder Berge, 23, is back on Arsenal’s radar – though not  first choice – and will cost £30million after arriving from Genk 18 months ago for a fee of £22m.

    GOT TU GO – EXCLUSIVE

    Manchester United want £5m for sending centre-half Axel Tuanzebe on loan.

    The powerful defender, 23, is wanted by Newcastle and Aston Villa among others and could be allowed out of Old Trafford to get game time.

    But United are after £5m – to cover wages over the season and a loan fee – for Tuanzebe and do not plan to budge from that.

    Tuanzebe had a previous spell at Villa in the Championship but United are asking for a premium rate to send him to a Premier League home.

    United will not give up on the academy product but a year in the Prem would help – the cost also encourages Toon and Villa to weigh up his likely playing time to justify the expense.

    Carrick has since joined the coaching staff at Old Trafford, working under current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Solskjaer has constantly received regular updates on the player since he replaced Jose Mourinho three years ago.

    And now his own long-term future has been secured after signing a new three-year contract last week, United top brass hope that will leave them as favourites to sign Haaland next summer.

    POGBA 'MAY' STAY AT UNITED

    Paul Pogba can see a future at Manchester United, according to Sky Sports News.

    Rumours suggest the 28-year-old is excited by the direction the club is going in following the signing of Jadon Sancho.

    Pogba is also thought to be impressed by the imminent arrival of Raphael Varane after United agreed a deal with Real Madrid to sign the player.

    But the midfielder may wait until after the transfer window to make his mind up, giving him the chance to leave on a free next summer.

    VARANE LATEST

    Raphael Varane has confirmed he is leaving Real Madrid after penning an emotional tribute to the Spanish club's fans.

    United have reached an agreement with the LaLiga side to sign the French defender, 28.

    Varane posted on his Instagram: "These last few days have been charged with many emotions, feelings that I now want to share with all of you.

    "After 10 incredible and wonderful years at Real Madrid, a club that I will always carry in my heart, the day has come to say goodbye…

    FER-GET PRESTON

    Manchester United stars Bruno Fernandes and David De Gea were spotted enjoying a fancy Italian lunch on Saturday afternoon.

    The Red Devils were meant to play Preston in a pre-season friendly but it was cancelled after a coronavirus outbreak in the United camp.

    The club did not disclose which players – if any – have contracted the virus, but both parties preferred to take the safer option with the start of the season not far away.

    But a gathering of the squad at Cibo restaurant on Saturday at least gives an indication into which players have not been forced to isolate.

    De Gea and Fernandes were snapped leaving the restaurant alongside Spanish team-mate Juan Mata.

    One photo also shows Tom Heaton greeting Fernandes on his way out, with several United players in attendance.

    TURKISH DELIGHT

    Manchester United star Andreas Pereira has become a shock target for Fenerbahce, following his wonder strike in a pre-season friendly.

    The 25-year-old Belgian-born midfielder struck a sumptuous right-foot volley in a 2-2 draw with Brentford reminiscent of Tony Yeboah's goal for Leeds against Liverpool back in 1995.

    Pereira moved to the Red Devils in 2015, but has struggled to cement a place in United's first team.

    During his time at the club, he has been loaned out to three different clubs, including Granada, Valencia and Lazio.

    At the end of the last campaign, the Serie A giants enquired about signing Pereira on a permanent deal – but were told to stump up around £21million.

    Instead, Lazio turned their attentions to Felipe Anderson, who they snapped up from West Ham in a £3m deal.

    Now Fenerbahce have thrown their hat in the ring, along with an unnamed Premier League club, for Pereira's services.

    The Turkish giants have enquired about his transfer valuation, but are said to be reluctant to pay his £21m fee.

    TELL YOU WHAT

    Man United star Alex Telles is looking forward to the new season, despite sustaining an ankle injury against QPR last weekend.

    The Brazilian had an underwhelming rookie season at Old Trafford, as a victim of fellow left-back Luke Shaw's incredible form.

    But he is upbeat, writing on Twitter: "Minor Setback for a major come back! Working hard to get Back Soon @ManUtd."

    DEVIL IN DISGUISE

    Jack Grealish has fuelled speculation that he is about to join Manchester City… by deleting an old tweet about Man United.

    It is well known that the attacking midfielder is a Villa fan through and through, having grown up supporting the team he now captains.

    But eagle-eyed observers online noticed that he once tweeted about United back in 2012.

    The England star, 16 at the time, wrote: "Love listening to Drake while going sleep. Off to sleep for a bit then up for the United game tonight #RedDevils!!"

    A City fan found it and replied: "Delete."

    And to his amazement, within half an hour Grealish, or at least a member of his media team, did.

    The 25-year-old is widely tipped to sign for City in the coming days, after the Premier League champions had an extraordinary bid of £100million accepted.

    If completed, Grealish would overtake £89m star Paul Pogba as the most expensive Premier League signing ever.

    VARDINAND

    Patrice Evra believes Raphael Varane is a 'top, top signing' for Manchester United.

    And he also reckons the central defender is like his old Red Devils team-mate Rio Ferdinand.

    Evra, 40, played alongside Varane for France between 2013 and 2016 and the new £34m Man United signing left an extremely positive impression.

    Speaking to The Athletic, Evra said: "Varane reminds me of Rio Ferdinand.

    "Great with the ball, great in the air. He's the complete centre-back.

    "I remember his first game with the French national team and I was so impressed.

    "He was so young yet so good with the ball, so fast and his anticipation was perfect.

    "He's calm with the ball and he can score too.

    "It's a top, top signing for Manchester United."

    GREAL UPDATE

    Aston Villa are expected to accept Manchester City’s £100million bid for Jack Grealish, who was linked with Manchester United in the past.

    According to Sky Sports, Villa have yet to formally respond to City’s offer, which was made on Friday, but are set to give the green light soon.

    It means Grealish may become the biggest transfer in English football history after Paul Pogba’s £89m move to Manchester United back in 2016.

    Villa did hand the talented forward a new and improved contract this summer, despite him only signing a five-year deal last September

    RAPH RIDE

    Incoming Manchester United arrival Raphael Varane hopes to travel to Manchester this weekend to complete his move.

    According to Manchester Evening News, Varane could fly to Manchester today but he first needs to obtain a visa before he can travel to England.

    The France international will have to quarantine following his arrival and will then undergo a medical to complete his £43million move.

    The star defender bade farewell to Real Madrid team-mates and staff on Friday

    BO WAY

    There have been rumours suggesting that Bayern Munich legend Jerome Boateng could join Manchester United.

    However, there is no truth in that as United are not interested in Boateng.

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed the news and added that the defender won't be joining Hertha Berlin or PSV Eindhoven either.

    MATIC SECRET

    Manchester United ace Nemanja Matic has revealed the reason why it is important to train hard and properly during pre-season.

    Matic said: “The most important thing always is to prepare your body for the long season and to be physically ready.

    "If you train very well during pre-season then you have less injuries.

    " They are part of football, especially as we have so many games, but the important thing is to be physically ready and you have to use every pre-season for that”
