  • IT'S A CENTURY

    Manchester United have made an improved offer for Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

    The Red Devils were knocked back by Dortmund in a deal worth up to £90m but are now said to have lodged a bid that will see the German side potentially earn nine figures for the winger.

    Tancredi Palmeri claims United have offered £82m up front, rising to a potential £100m with add-ons.

    However, this still remains short of Dortmund's asking price of £108m in one payment.

  • MORNING, RED DEVILS!

    Manchester United have made no 'new' or 'formal' bid for Jadon Sancho.

    SunSport's NEIL CUSTIS reports the situation remains that the Red Devils are offering £70million, rising to £100m.

    But Borussia Dortmund want a larger chunk of the fee to be paid up front.

    Sky Sports had reported a bid of £91.3m was rejected.

    The 20-year-old did not travel with Dortmund to Munich for their German Super Cup game.

    Sancho is suffering with a ‘respiratory infection’ but did NOT test positive for Covid-19.

    AS reports United are in talks with Edinson Cavani’s brother – also his agent – over a free transfer.

    And they could turn to Real Madrid flop Luka Jovic if unsuccessful.

    Spanish source RouteOneFootball claims Man Utd went all out for Ansu Fati and attempted to trigger his £154m clause, which would have obliged Barcelona to accept the offer.

    But Old Trafford chiefs apparently did not realise the Catalan club had already upped the price to £363m, ending their hopes of an audacious signing.

    Manchester United are closing in on a shock move for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele for a bargain £47million, according to AS.

    But NEIL CUSTIS understands no formal offer has been made for the 23-year-old.

  • BELE RUMBLE

    Manchester United are closing in on a shock move for Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele for a bargain £47million, according to reports.

    The Catalan side are prepared to take a huge hit on the Frenchman having paid Borussia Dortmund £108m for his signature three years ago.

    Dembele, 23, has shown glimpses of his terrific potential during his time in Spain but has failed to perform consistently.

    A string of injuries and behavioural issues, including failing to show up for training, have contributed to his fall in a Barca shirt.

    AS report that United are ready to help reignite his career with the player keen to make the move.

    They add that Barca are open to cashing in because they want to use the cash to help land Memphis Depay.

    Although it is understood that no official bid has been made, Barca would accept around £47m should an offer be lodged.

  • DUTCH BLASTER

    Donny van de Beek's agent has hit out after Manchester United benched their new midfielder for the first two Premier League matches – and says Brighton should have beaten them 7-1.

    Sjaak Swart believes the £39million star's 90th-minute arrival made the difference as United stole a 3-2 victory at the Amex Stadium with a penalty awarded via VAR AFTER the final whistle.

    The 82-year-old told Voetbal Primeur: “A substitute, I don’t like it at all.

    “I couldn’t do it myself, substituting in with four minutes left to play. Then you’d better let me sit down.

    “I have to say he did three more good things. The penalty, where the winning goal came from, came from him.

    “But normally they should have lost 1-7. Five times post and bar, Brighton… They have a nice team, but that shouldn’t happen to Manchester United.”

  • RULE SHAKER

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is struggling to get used to the crazy new world of football in the Premier League, writes NEIL CUSTIS.

    No fans in the ground, unequal preparation times due to last season's very late finish for his side and now the handball rule that has everyone’s head spinning.

    Solskajer said: “I think football has changed. There are no fans, it’s a different game. Pre-season we were at different stages, the new handball rule… you never know what’s going to happen.

    “You can discuss it all day long but we need some clarity on what’s a foul and what’s a penalty because now it looks like you can chip the ball up into someone’s hand like what happened to us against Palace for example and Victor got a penalty against him.

    “And then the header against Tottenham, he’s got no idea the ball hits him.

    “You see the goals scored against West Brom at the end, is that not handball? We need to get that clarity. It’s a whole spectre of things that aren’t normal.

    “There have been so many changes and nuances to different rules. Back in the old day it seemed simpler.”

  • OUS COMING IN?

    Manchester United have NOT made a bid for Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele.

    SunSport's NEIL CUSTIS reports, contrary to other reports, the Red Devils have not made a formal offer.

  • SAME OLD PROBLEM

    Manchester United have made no 'new' or 'formal' bid for Jadon Sancho.

    SunSport's NEIL CUSTIS reports the situation remains that the Red Devils are offering £70million, rising to £100m.

    But Borussia Dortmund want a larger chunk of the fee to be paid up front.

    Debate around the 20-year-old's future is set to rumble on until the October 5 deadline.

  • NO SANCH YOU

    Borussia Dortmund have REJECTED Manchester United's bid for Jadon Sancho.

    Sky Sports reports the German side have turned down an offer amounting to £91.3million.

    The Red Devils are still trying to sign the 20-year-old despite a number of Dortmund representatives saying he will stay for at least another year.

    Dortmund value their prized asset at £108m.

  • DEAN AND GONE

    Manchester United stars reportedly believe Dean Henderson is on the verge of ousting David De Gea as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s No1 goalie.

    The Mail claims England hopeful Henderson has impressed since returning from a two-year loan at Sheffield United.

    And with the pressure mounting on De Gea after some high-profile blunders, it's claimed a number of Red Devils reckon Henderson will soon find himself between the sticks.

    De Gea has started both of United’s Premier League games this season, a 3-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace and a 3-2 win away at Brighton.

    Meanwhile, Henderson was put in goal for the 3-0 Carabao Cup win against Luton Town.

  • SANCHO WORRY

    Manchester United target Jadon Sancho has NOT flown to Munich with Borussia Dortmund.

    The 20-year-old is suffering with a 'respiratory infection' but has not tested positive for Covid-19.

    Sancho will not play against Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup.

  • EDIN SOMEWHERE

    Manchester United are in talks to sign Edinson Cavani on a free transfer – while adding Luka Jovic on loan in an incredible double-swoop, according to reports.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seen enough just two games into the Premier League season and is itching to bolster his attack, it seems.

    AS claim Man Utd are already in talks with Cavani's brother – also his agent – after he was released by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season.

    But should United fail to land the Uruguayan legend, they will instead look to Real Madrid flop Jovic.

    The Serbian striker, 22, only joined Los Blancos las summer but struggled mightily – scoring just twice in 18 LaLiga games.

  • FAT CHANCE

    Manchester United tried to activate Ansu Fati's £154million release clause to sign him but were too late, incredible reports from Spain suggest.

    The 17-year-old Barcelona wonderkid caught the eye of the Premier League side, but their gambit failed after Barca officials moved quickly to hike the clause up to £363m in his new contract.

    Spanish source RouteOneFootball claim Man Utd went all out for Fati.

    They attempted to trigger his £154m clause, which would have obliged Barcelona to accept the offer.

    But Old Trafford chiefs apparently did not realise the Catalan club had already upped the price to £363m, ending their hopes of an audacious signing.

  • 'LAUGHTER'

    There has been “laughter” in Germany over Manchester United's interest in Jadon Sancho, according to Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill.

    The Red Devils are reportedly determined to get a deal over the line for the 20-year-old before the transfer window closes.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly in regular contact with Borussia Dortmund's star man.

    It is understood the Bundesliga giants are demanding a whopping £108million for Sancho.

  • RED ALERT

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to add to his Manchester United squad before the transfer window slams shut next week.

    SunSport previously reported that the Norwegian remains confident of prising Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund.

    The 20-year-old is known to be the Red Devils' No1 target, but they have failed to strike a deal with the Bundesliga giants.

    Should they land their top targets, here's how they could look for the remainder of the season…

  • IN THE RED

    Manchester United are still pushing to secure a deal for Jadon Sancho before the transfer window closes.

    But as things stand, David De Gea is the club's highest-paid player.

  • MADE HIS MARC

    Marco Reus has told Sky Sports that Jadon Sancho is staying at Borussia Dortmund for one more year.

    Manchester United are still hoping to get a deal agreed for Sancho before the transfer window closes.

    When asked if the 20-year-old had made the right decision to stay, Reus said: “For us players that was great news.

    “We all were happy that he will be with us for the season.

    “Also because he delivers scorer points for the team, goals, assists – in the end that translates to a lot of points.

    “He is an essential player for us.”

  • HE'S SO SHAW

    Luke Shaw has highlighted the importance of the Carabao Cup ahead of Wednesday's clash against Brighton.

    The left-back told the club website: “Of course it's a competition we want to win, but I think it gives the manager that opportunity to give chances to other players that are on the bench and on the fringe, who are training very hard to get chances.

    “I think games like this are perfect for them.

    “It's good that we've got a very strong squad with players who are ready to play and are ready to take their chance.

    “I'm sure the players are looking forward to that on Wednesday.”

  • COSTA LOT

    The Red Devils have drawn up a five-man shortlist of alternatives to Jadon Sancho, according to reports.

    The Express claims Watford's Ismaila Sarr, Bournemouth's Josh King, Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, Ivan Perisic of Inter Milan and Juventus winger Douglas Costa are all under consideration.

    United have seemingly spent the entire summer chasing Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho.

    Vut the German club appear to have closed the door on a summer exit for the 20-year-old England international.

  • KOP THAT

    Liverpool are now the odds-on favourites to win the Premier League this season.

    But fans could take a punt on Manchester United at 33/1.

  • SANCH-GO

    United reportedly remain confident of prising Jadon Sancho away from Borussia Dortmund before the window slams shut on Monday.

    The 20-year-old is known to be the Red Devils' No1 transfer target, but they have failed to make a breakthrough with BVB in negotiations.

    It is understood that the Bundesliga side are holding out for £108million – an asking price United are refusing to match.

    Despite United's unwillingness to fork out £108m, it's claimed that the club still expect to secure the England international's services.

    According to Dagbladet via AS, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken to Sancho and told him he expects the move to soon be finalised.

  • JU WIN

    Jurgen Klopp and Roy Keane squared off on Sky Sports after the Manchester United icon said Liverpool were “sloppy” in parts of their 3-1 win over Arsenal.

    Goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and new signing Diogo Jota cancelled out Alexandre Lacazette's opener.

    And some were even half-jokingly ready to concede the title to last season's champions again after their performance.

    Not so Keane, though, who endured an awkward encounter with the Liverpool boss after he overheard his comments from the Sky studio.

    Klopp said: “Did he [Keane] say we had a sloppy performance tonight?

    “He must have been watching a different game. Nothing was sloppy. This game was exceptional. The football we played was absolutely exceptional.”

    Here's how the pair compare…

  • HAND GRENADE

    The Premier League looks certain to be stuck with the controversial new handball rule until next season.

    Already this campaign we have seen fuming bosses including Jose Mourinho, Steve Bruce and Roy Hodgson slam the law.

    Well the bad news for managers, players and fans alike is that the law is here to stay – until June at least.

    Law changes can only be made at the March AGM of the International Football Association Board (Ifab).

    Any changes will then come into effect from June 1.

    This Premier League season is set to finish on Sunday, May 23.

    Top flight shareholders are expected to discuss the law at their meeting in October.

    But changes can only be enacted at the Ifab summit next year.

  • BRIGHT START

    OIe Gunnar Solskjaer could make up to TEN changes for Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash with Brighton.

    The Manchester United boss gave his side a major shake-up for the third-round victory at Luton last week.

    And following the dramatic 3-2 win at the Amex on Saturday, he is expected to mix things up again on the south coast.

    Here's how the Red Devils could start…

  • DE MAIN MAN

    Barcelona have made Memphis Depay their no.1 target as Ronald Koeman bids to gift Lionel Messi a new strike partner, reports say.

    The Dutch manager is reportedly insisting on a fresh forward man after the departure of Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid.

    And former United flop Depay, who has long been linked with the Spanish club, is seen as the perfect replacement to link up with Messi.

    Barca hit four past Villareal in their opening La Liga game over the weekend but, according to Sport, Koeman was still left wishing for more going forward.

  • WAT A PLAYER

    United midfielder James Garner is already proving to be a huge hit during his loan spell with Watford.

    The 19-year-old put on a good show during his side's clash against rivals Luton Town at the weekend.

    Coach Vladimir Ivic said: “He is one of the most talented players in England.

    “He is a quality player with the ball, he knows how to move the ball fast and he thinks fast, which is very important.”
