    FREE TO FEEL GOOD

    Juventus are worried that Paulo Dybala will join Manchester United for free, according to reports.

    The Argentine, whose contract expires in 2022, has had a strained relationship with the club in recent months.

    And he has been reprimanded by Juve and left out of the squad for today's derby with Torino after breaching Covid rules to attend a party with team-mates Arthur and Weston McKennie.

    According to CalcioMercato, the Italian side are extremely keen to sell Dybala this summer in order to avoid losing him on a free transfer.

    The 27-year-old was a top target for the Red Devils under Jose Mourinho and they could be willing to rekindle their interest for the right price.

    The Manchester Evening News reports that United are keeping tabs on a number of players available for free in 2022, including Kylian Mbappe, Raphael Varane and Ousmane Dembele.

    GOOD MORNING UTD FANS,

    Ole Gunnar Solskajer is agonising over who to make his number one goalkeeper in the final Premier League run-in.

    Dean Henderson has enjoyed a run of six games while David De Gea was given time off for the birth of his first child.

    Solskjaer said: “It’s difficult to leave one of them out. It’s easy to give the nod they’ll play, it’s difficult to leave one out. Where there can be potential tension and controversy, everyone wants to hear a comment from me.

    “They are both top goalkeepers and both of them want to play as much as possible. But who we pick will be decided on merit and we have to think of who’s going give us a win on any given day.

    “Both will be needed in these final nine league games and five in the Europa League because we want to go all the way in that.”

    Meanwhile on the transfer front, Solskjaer is refusing to be drawn into a public battle to land Erling Haaland.

    He said: “Even though I worked with Erling it’s not right for me as Manchester United manager to talk about Erling, he will make his own mind up.

    “I’m focusing on the next two months and whatever happens in the world of football there is only so many places anyone can go to and I just, focus on the ones who are here.”

    And finally, United have reportedly entered the race for Everton defender Thierry Small.

    The Express claim the 16-year-old could leave Goodison Park on a free transfer following limited first-team opportunities.

    And United are set to rival Arsenal, Brentford, Brighton and even Bayern Munich for the Everton academy graduate’s signature.

    But the report adds that Small is ready to spurn the advances of any big clubs with playing time his current priority.

    KANE BARRIER

    Jose Mourinho and Harry Kane have not spoken about the striker’s Tottenham future.

    The England captain revealed last week he will wait until after this summer’s Euros before deciding whether to stay at the club.

    SunSport revealed on Friday chairman Daniel Levy is not prepared to sell his star man.

    And when asked if he has had conversations with Kane about the situation, Spurs boss Mourinho said: “No. He works so well every day.

    "He is such a professional, committed with the team, performing well.

    “I’ve nothing to speak with him about. He has three years of his contract remaining.

    “Unless he wants to speak with me about it… and until now he never approached me in relation to anything.”

    ROLE TO PLAY

    Teddy Sheringham has revealed how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt being a bench role during Manchester United's iconic treble season.

    He told the club's website: "Ole and I definitely had a similar philosophy on being substitutes.

    "I mean, you don’t want to be known as or called a ‘super sub’ or a ‘great sub’. I played a lot of games.

    "In the latter part of my career, I came on and scored goals as a sub and people remember that.

    "It’s fine. Not a problem, but there is the first part of my career people need to remember as well. But you do have to get your head around it."

    TOP MARCS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful both Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will be fit to face Brighton this weekend.

    He said: “As always when you send them away on an international break you keep your fingers crossed they'll be available for you.

    “I don't know about Anthony (Martial), he didn't join in training this morning but Marcus and Mason trained for the first time this morning and hopefully they can get through that with no reaction.

    “And if they complete the selection tomorrow they might be available for selection.”

    Speaking to ESPN, he said: "I don't know where that originated from. It's social media isn't it? I don't pay attention to Instagram and Twitter. I tend to stay away.

    "I'll give you a nickname, my old reserve team coach Warren Joyce used to call me the Tin Man. So, yeah. Whenever I was growing up, I was really small, then I went really tall all of a sudden.

    "It was quite a big change, but I was really like, my legs, I always struggled to move my hips and stuff.

    "Dean Henderson still calls me it, because we were in the same reserve team together so he still calls me Tin Man to this day.

    "And the foreign lads are always looking at him like: 'Are you alright, why are you calling him that?'

    HA LA LAND

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is refusing to be drawn into a public battle to land Erling Haaland.

  • Joe Brophy

    GOAL HAAL

    Erling Haaland is Manchester United’s best bet if they are to sign a striker in the summer, according to Paul Scholes.

    He told the Webby & O’Neill show: “[United] need a No9.

    “I think the forwards they have are very good, but are any of them really a No9, or are they wide players? You just can’t make sense out of it really.

    “When Cavani’s played, he’s looked alright but he’s had a few injuries. He’s at that age. It was always going to happen, he was always going to be bit-part.

    “They need someone who is more permanent who’s out there and available. I know Haaland is talked about a lot, he’s going to cost a lot of money.

    “Harry Kane at Spurs, there’s rumours that he might want to leave there.

    “I think any one of them, you take any one of them, but I think if I had to choose, then Haaland would definitely be the one.

    “Purely for his age, great ability as well, the timing of his career, he’s played under Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] before…

    “I think it would make sense for everyone to do it, but there’s going to be other clubs in for him which is going to be difficult.”

    MORE FROM SOLSKJAER

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted it will be difficult to do anything out of the public eye in his pursuit of Erling Haaland.

    He said: “I think the way the world works at the moment, you’d like to do all your business on the quiet and all your talks on the quiet but there are platforms everywhere, there’s news, the media make that more difficult.

    “Who can you trust? Hopefully we can suddenly sit here with players no one has written about.

    “We conduct our recruitment business, scouting, the players that we are interested in, we do it the right way I hope and feel.”

    ERLI BIRD

    Erling Haaland's agent Mino Raiola is set to fly to England TODAY for transfer talks with Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool but NOT Manchester United.

    The super agent was spotted flying into Barcelona and Madrid alongside the player's father Alfe-Inge Haaland on Thursday to hold talks with the El Clasico sides.

    And it was reported that a further three interested teams were due to begin negotiations around a potential deal for Borussia Dortmund's prized asset.

    The Mail reports Raiola and Haaland senior will arrive in England to hold talks with multiple Premier League giants.

    Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are expected to welcome the pair but SunSport understands United will not meet with Haaland's agent, who also represents Paul Pogba.

    However, the Red Devils are waiting in the wings and keeping tabs on his situation. The Norwegian has a £65million release clause in his Dortmund contract but it cannot be activated until the end of next season.

    ED IN THE GAME

    Manchester United could welcome back striker Edinson Cavani for their clash with Brighton at Old Trafford this weekend.

    The Uruguayan missed all but one of the Red Devils’ five matches before the international break due to injury. But he is now returning to full fitness, much to the relief of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is suffering a mini crisis among his attacking options.

    Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood could all miss the game having picked up injuries, a selection headache that could see Amad Diallo earn his Premier League debut.

    Martial is yet to return to training and while Rashford and Greenwood have re-joined the squad, they are not expected to be fit enough to start.

    The ever-present Bruno Fernandes will be well rested for this one having returned from international duty early after picking up a suspension for Portugal’s final World Cup qualifier. And Dan James will be hoping to build on his crucial goal for Wales against the Czech Republic earlier this week.

    In between the sticks, Solskjaer has a big decision to make between David de Gea and Dean Henderson. Henderson started the six matches before the break, but De Gea is now back in contention having been missing following the birth of his child.

    'TIN MAN'

    Scott McTominay has revealed his nickname is ‘Tin Man’ within the Manchester United dressing room, NOT ‘McSauce’.

    After netting two goals in just three minutes against Leeds back in December, social media exploded as ‘McSauce’ began trending on Twitter.

    But the Red Devils midfielder has now confirmed he is known by a different tag with his teammates. Speaking to ESPN, he said: “I don’t know where that originated from. It’s social media isn’t it? I don’t pay attention to Instagram and Twitter. I tend to stay away.

    “I’ll give you a nickname, my old reserve team coach Warren Joyce used to call me the Tin Man. So, yeah. Whenever I was growing up, I was really small, then I went really tall all of a sudden.

    “It was quite a big change, but I was really like, my legs, I always struggled to move my hips and stuff. Dean Henderson still calls me it, because we were in the same reserve team together so he still calls me Tin Man to this day.

    “And the foreign lads are always looking at him like: ‘Are you alright, why are you calling him that?’ So that’s been one for years now. But we don’t need that one to stick, I don’t like it!”

    COST AN ARM AND A LEG

    The captain's armband thrown to the floor by former Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo in last week’s World Cup qualifier has raised £54,000 for charity.

    The item was collected from the Red Star Stadium pitch in Belgrade and soon found its way online.

    Posted on auction website Limundo, it received huge attention with the proceeds going to charity. The money raised from selling the armband will be sent to Gavril Djurdjevic.

    The six-month-old baby lives in the city of Kragujevac and suffers from spinal muscular atrophy. Humanitarian organisation Together for Life is hoping to raise just over £2million to pay for his treatment.

    After 408 bids, the auction has ended with £54,000 raised from the buyer.

    The armband was picked up from the pitch by a Serbian firefighter, who posed with the piece before the auction closed.

    COKE RAID

    Two men have been arrested after police seized packages branded with Cristiano Ronaldo’s logo containing 50kg of cocaine.

    A United States narcotics investigation found £1.5million worth of the illegal drug stashed in a closet in New York. The cocaine was wrapped in packaging marked with the Juventus star’s ‘CR7’ branding.

    Police officers found materials persistent with drug trafficking inside an apartment in Queens, including a loaded firearm, $10,000 in cash, and money counting machines.

    An investigation led to 43-year-old Christopher Jones being observed as he entered the apartment on Monday afternoon, as confirmed by a US Justice Department statement.

    Jones entered the complex empty handed but left with a suitcase and drove away before being arrested.

    The suitcase was found to contain approximately $200,000 in cash. Another man, Wykim Williams, was also arrested and there is no suggestion of a link between the raid and Ronaldo.
