  • POGBA: CAVANI IS UTD'S TOP STRIKER

    Paul Pogba claims Edinson Cavani has more "quality" than fellow Manchester United strikers Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.

    Cavani and Pogba clinched Wednesday's 2-1 comeback at Fulham to put United top of the Premier League.

    And midfielder Pogba told MUTV: “Everybody knows that Edi is a top-class striker and there are few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one.

    “We know the hardest goals are those goals. We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy in front, even Mason, that they can shoot from outside and stuff.

    “But they don’t have this, the experience of Edi, and they don’t have the same quality of Edi as well. 

    "So, I think we complete each other with the players we have in front."

  • DAY-ERN MUNICH

    Bayern Munich have keen on Manchester United and Liverpool target Dayot Upamecano, reports say.

    RB Leipzig's France defender Dayot Upamecano has also been linked to Arsenal.

    The 22-year-old's contract expires in 2023 but a clause in that deal allows him to go for in the summer of next year for around £40million. 

  • POGBA TIPPED TO STAY

    United are said to be increasingly confident Paul Pogba will stay for at least next season.

    Wednesday night's matchwinner at Fulham is wanted by old club Juventus and Real Madrid.

    And the midfielder's agent Mino Raiola claimed last month Pogba's time at Old Trafford was "over"

    Now the Mirror suggest the 27-year-old is feeling more settled, especially as United are pressing so hard for honours this term.

  • UTD IN QUEUE FOR WHIZKID VERON

    Manchester United are vying with neighbours City, Juventus and Barcelona for 18-year-old Brazilian striker Gabriel Veron.

    Veron has hit eight goals and three assists in 33 games for Copa Libertadores finalists Palmeiras this season.

    And despite his £53million release, it’s reckoned Palmeiras are willing to sell for £18m.

    But Veron is said to favour a move to Barcelona should the chance arise.

    But much depends on the outcome of Barca's upcoming presidential election, with money already tight in Catalonia.

  • CHRISTIAN WANTED

    Manchester United want Christian Eriksen on loan until the end of the season, according to reports.

    But the deal is being held up as the Red Devils have reportedly offered to pay less than 40 per cent of the Inter outcast’s wages with the Italians paying the rest.

    The Danish playmaker, 28, left Tottenham a year ago to join Inter Milan.

    But the £16.9million star has flopped miserably over the last 12 months under Antonio Conte.

    And Eriksen is thought to want out already with Inter open to loaning him to put him in the shop window for a summer sale.

  • POGBA AND BRUNO CAN FORGE SPECIAL LINK

    Paul Pogba has proved he can play alongside Bruno Fernandes in the midfield, claimed Rio Ferdinand.

    The French superstar fired Manchester United back to the top of the table with his winner against Fulham.

    And Ferdinand, 42, told BT Sport: “I think today he [Pogba] was brilliant, he did both sides well – defended well but created chances. The big difference is that he is playing quick, not dilly dallying on ball, the efficiency he is playing well is amazing.

    “I don’t think Ole completely trusts him in the centre of midfield with the pace that some sides counter with, so he plays him out of those area, but in this game they felt they would dominate and so he can allow him to do it. One of the best when he is in this form. He loves the game, [he] wants to showcase his talent.

    “I saw Pogba grow up, I saw his talent first-hand, I think he is capable of playing in the midfield [alongside Fernandes], if he has the players around him he can do it.”

  • THREE IN FOR MARTIN

    Former Manchester United target Martin Odegaard is reportedly tempted by the opportunity to join Arsenal on loan this month.

    Fabrizio Romano claims the Real Madrid misfit, 22, is giving great consideration to the proposal – with Real Sociedad and Ajaz also hovering.

    And he will discuss options with family members before deciding on a new destination before the end of the month.

    Odegaard has told Real he wants to leave after making just nine appearances in all competitions this term.

    Sociedad are understood to be favourites for the Norway international, who excelled there last year before having a two-season loan cut short by Los Blancos.

    Ajax have also made an offer for Odegaard, who has enjoyed previous loan spells with Dutch outfits Heerenveen and Vitesse.

    All three routes are extremely appealing for the playmaker, who famously joined Real when he was just 16 years old in 2015.

    United were previously linked with Odegaard but are not believed to have made an approach after welcoming Amad Diallo to Old Trafford.

  • PREM GIANTS' £310m EACH TO JOIN SUPER LEAGUE

    Premier League clubs agreeing to join a new European Super League were in line for a £310million payment, it has been claimed.

    New leaked documents have emerged amid Fifa's attempt to kill off the proposal.

    According to The Times, six English clubs were being eyed up as founder members of the Super League.

    This is most likely to have been the 'Big Six' of Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal - even though the latter two teams are currently placed eighth and tenth respectively.

    A huge £3.1billion fund was being formulated by the competition's organisers, which was to be split between the 15 founder clubs.

    The payment, ranging from £89m to £310m, was reportedly described as an 'infrastructure grant' to spend on stadiums, training facilities and account for lost pandemic revenue.

    Liverpool, United, AC Milan and Real Madrid have been named as clubs involved in planning the Super League, with the Spanish giants' president Florentino Perez a vocal advocate.

    Barcelona are one club who have already signed up for proposals, according to former chief Josep Maria Bartomeu.

  • NEV'S BIG DOUBLE

    Manchester United legend Phil Neville is celebrating not just becoming manager of David Beckham's Inter Miami but bis 44th birthday today.

  • JESSE LOAN-GARD

    Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is on the loan radar of Tottenham, West Ham and Sheffield United, according to talkSPORT.

    The England star, 22, has been outcast by Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, failing to appear in any Premier League matches and featuring in just three cup games.

    Spurs have struggled for goals from midfield this season, with just nine of their 33 goals coming from players other than Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

    Meanwhile, David Moyes’ side are looking to bolster the creativity in their squad to take the burden off of Michail Antonio’s shoulders.

    And it goes without saying that Wilder’s Sheffield United need some more firepower in front of goal having netted just ten times in 19 Premier League matches.

  • TOP OF THE SHOTS

    Manchester United are top of the shots (with 110 on target) as well as the Premier League.

    And despite sliding down to eighth place in the Prem Chelsea are fourth in the shots table, on 99.

  • UTD EYE 'ERIKSEN LOAN DEAL'

    Manchester United have made a loan bid for Christian Eriksen, according to The Transfer Window podcast.

    The deal, if it goes through, would be a loan until the end of the season with no option to buy, reports Ian McGarry.

    He adds that Man Utd have yet to offer Inter a sufficient portion of Eriksen’s wages for the deal to go through.

    Eriksen’s wages are said to be £7.1m net per year, meaning £3.5m for the duration of the loan.

    However, the Red Devils are said to have offered to pay £1.3m – less than 50 per cent of that figure.

    McGarry’s colleague Duncan Castles said: “That offer is one that would be laughed out of court in a normal window, but why not chance your arm knowing Inter want to offload him?”

  • FULL OF RE-GRETA

    Manchester United outcast Indy Boonen is at the centre of a trolling storm after attacking climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

    Belgian winger Boonen was dubbed the new Ryan Giggs when he joined United aged 16.

    But he left Old Trafford for KV Oostende after three years in 2018 without making a senior appearances.

    Boonen sparked fury after reacting to a tweet from Swede Thunberg, 18.

    The campaigner posted a photo of former US president Donald Trump leaving the White House on Wednesday.

    She wrote: "He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!"

    Boonen, 22, contemptuously tweeted: "Go to school little girl!!!"

  • OUT ON A LIN

    Tottenham, West Ham and Sheffield United are looking at signing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard on loan, reports claim.

    The 28-year-old Englishman has been outcast by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, failing to appear in any Premier League matches and featuring in just three cup games.

    As a result he is being linked with a move away from Old Trafford and the two London rivals along with Chris Wilder's Blades have emerged as the front runners for a temporary deal, according to talkSPORT.

    Spurs have struggled for goals from midfield this season, with just nine of their 33 goals coming from players other than Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

    Meanwhile, David Moyes’ side are looking to bolster the creativity in their squad to take the burden off of Michail Antonio’s shoulders.

    And it goes without saying that Wilder’s Sheffield United need some more firepower in front of goal having netted just ten times in 19 Premier League matches.

  • SEEING RED

    Global football chiefs have slammed the door shut on plans for a breakaway European Super League.

    Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been the ringleader of the plotters, regularly talking up the concept.

    But the Euro giants have now been warned they will find themselves banned from domestic leagues if they joined any breakaway.

    And players will be banned from taking part in the World Cup, European Championship or South America’s Copa America if their clubs are among the rebels.

    Uefa are expected to confirm the details of the new-look Champions League to take effect from the 2024-25 season in the next few months.

  • BITE MAN BAN

    Manchester United were banned from signing Luis Suarez for free due to a clause in his contract at Barcelona.

    United were one of several clubs that the Uruguayan wasn't able to join after his Catalan exit.

    Suarez was linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer but with his ties to Liverpool, it was not likely to happen.

    He was also found guilty of racially abusing United legend Patrice Evra in 2011, making the move impossible.

    Other clubs on the list included Real Madrid, Man City and PSG, according to ESPN.

  • INTER HIM

    Manchester United want Christian Eriksen on loan until the end of the season, according to reports.

    But the deal is being held up as the Red Devils have reportedly offered to pay less than 40 per cent of the Inter outcast's wages with the Italians paying the rest.

    The Danish playmaker, 28, left Tottenham a year ago to join Inter Milan.

    But the £16.9million star has flopped miserably over the last 12 months under Antonio Conte.

    And Eriksen is thought to want out already with Inter open to loaning him to put him in the shop window for a summer sale.

    Happy Birthday Nicky!

  • POINTS GAME

    Manchester United have racked up a remarkable 21 points from losing positions this season.

    Paul Pogba's rocket completed another turnaround last night after an early setback at Fulham.

    And it fired the Red Devils top of the Premier League again and continued their stunning away form.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have won eight and drawn two of their 10 away games this season.

    Their haul of 21 points from losing positions is more than double any of their rivals.

  • AIMING HIGH

    Manchester United captain Harry Maguire insisted that the club have to be challenging for honours after last night's 2-1 win at Fulham.

  • OVER TO BRU

    Paul Pogba has proved he can play alongside Bruno Fernandes in the midfield, claimed Rio Ferdinand.

    The French superstar fired Manchester United back to the top of the table with his winner against Fulham.

    And Ferdinand, 42, told BT Sport: "I think today he [Pogba] was brilliant, he did both sides well - defended well but created chances. The big difference is that he is playing quick, not dilly dallying on ball, the efficiency he is playing well is amazing.

    "I don't think Ole completely trusts him in the centre of midfield with the pace that some sides counter with, so he plays him out of those area, but in this game they felt they would dominate and so he can allow him to do it.

    "I saw Pogba grow up, I saw his talent first-hand, I think he is capable of playing in the midfield [alongside Fernandes], if he has the players around him he can do it."

  • HEART AND SOL

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave his thoughts to BT Sport and MUTV after last night's 2-1 triumph over Fulham.

    He said: "I think we started slow and after their goal I felt we did well. That was what we needed; we needed to wake up.

    "I don’t think we had shaken off the game on Sunday, but after that we did really well, we scored.

    "Poor again [after that], trying to be too direct and to go in behind and the Hollywood passes, then a fantastic goal by Paul and we had some great chances in the second half to finish the game.

    "When it’s only one goal, with the players they’ve put on, it’s always going to be like heart in your mouth."

  • LEFT FULHAM REELING

    Paul Pogba has expressed his delight after scoring a 'beautiful' winner with his left foot against Fulham.

    The Frenchman, 27, told BT Sport after the game: "I hit it well.

    "I didn’t expect my left foot to be like this. You know, if you don’t try you don’t know what’s going to happen.

    "I’m really glad the ball went in. It was a beautiful goal and a beautiful victory. That’s the most important."
