    GOOD MORNING MAN UTD FANS

    Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dodged a question regarding possible incoming signing Raphael Varane. 

    Speaking after United’s pre-season win against Derby County, the manager refused to talk about Varane.

    Reporter: “Why were you keen to sign Sancho?”

    Solskjær: “I will talk about players when we sign them, not while they’re at another club.”

    Reporter: “How close are you to signing Varane?”

    Solskjær: “[Laughs] Same again!”

    Liverpool are set to rival Man Utd for Rennes’ Eduardo Camavinga.

    According to Anfield Central, the Reds have made contact with Camavinga’s representatives. 

    And with the 18-year-old in the final year of his contract – and showing no signs of signing a new one – could leave for 40million euros.

    Jesse Lingard wants to fight for his place at Man Utd, according to boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Lingard played for United in today’s pre-season win over Derby County.

    Solskjaer said after the game: “Jesse has come back, he’s been bright and he wants to fight for his place.

    “There’s nothing better than seeing players willing to fight for their place. Of course, what he did towards the end of the season, that is the true Jesse.

    “That’s what we know he is capable of. I think we saw towards the end [of our own season] that we lacked maybe some options at times.”

    Manchester United have been handed a boost in the pursuit of Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

    The players agent has been in contact with both United and Liverpool in the event of a move to Barcelona not materialising.

    According to Spanish outlet AS, it would cost around £34.2million to sign the highly rated Spanish midfielder.

    BACK WITH A BANG

    Jesse Lingard almost crowned his return for Man Utd with a spectacular goal against Derby today.

    The United No14 cut inside off the left-hand side and sent a curling effort towards the top-right corner.

    But he was denied by the crossbar.

    FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING

    Facundo Pellistri is happy to score his first goal for Man Utd, all be it in a pre-season friendly.

    CAM COMPETITION

    Liverpool are set to rival Man Utd for Rennes’ Eduardo Camavinga.

    According to Anfield Central, the Reds have made contact with Camavinga's representatives.

    And with the 18-year-old in the final year of his contract – and showing no signs of signing a new one – could leave for 40million euros.

    Both United and Liverpool also hold an interest in Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez.

    TAHT DOES THE TRIP

    LUKE AT THEM

    Manchester United fans hailed 'agent' Luke Shaw after striking up a bromance with Declan Rice, writes JOSHUA JONES

    The England pair are on holiday together in Mykonos after starring at Euro 2020.

    They have been letting their hair down on the Greek island in the week after their final heartbreak against Italy, going out for food and enjoying the swimming pool with ocean views. 

    Fellow England heroes Kyle Walker, Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Jack Grealish, Kalvin Philips and Ben White are there too – as is snooker hero Judd Trump.

    The Manchester City right-back was filmed belting out a rendition of Sweet Caroline as they dined out at a restaurant. 

    But Red Devils supporters' eyes were drawn to Shaw and Rice hanging out together – in the hope the left-back can convince the West Ham ace to join him at Old Trafford this summer. 

    After seeing the pair shine on the same side at the Euros, United fans will be dreaming of them doing the same under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

    One said: "Agent Shaw working on Rice."

    UAR THE ONE

    A host of Premier League teams are tracking Lyon’s Houssen Aouar.

    Arsenal – who have been long-term admirers – could revisit a move for the Frenchman after seeing an offer rejected last summer.

    Liverpool are also looking at Aouar, as they look to replace Gini Wijnaldum, who left for Paris Saint-Germain. 

    Man Utd are also tracking the midfielder, in case Paul Pogba decides to quit Old Trafford.

    Tottenham are also looking to bolster their midfield, and Aouar is an option.

    RASH UPDATE

    Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has issued an injury update on winger Marcus Rashford.

    He said: "We're looking at the best option, he went away just to relfect on it a little bit and we have to take the best course of action for him and the club.

    "We're still addressing that (timing) with the experts"

    The United boss also condemned the racist abuse both Rashford and Jadon Sancho received after missing penalties in England's Euro 2020 final against Italy.

    He added: "It's very disappointing and sad, they play football, they do the best for the club, do the best for their family, do their best for their country and are brave enough to step up and take penalties, that's a win in itself."

    POG TOP

    Jadon Sancho is Man Utd's first high profile signing of the summer.

    The Red Devils are looking to improve their squad to catch Premier League champions Man City.

    Man Utd are interested in signing Atletico Madrid's Saul Niguez to bolster the midfield.

    SAUL TO PLAY FOR

    The players agent has been in contact with both United and Liverpool in the event of a move to Barcelona not materialising.

    According to Spanish outlet AS, it would cost around £34.2million to sign the highly rated Spanish midfielder. 

    And both United and Liverpool have greater spending power than Barca.

    Atletico will not be able to sign any players until someone goes out the door at the Metropolitano Stadium.

    LaLiga will not allow Atletico to register anymore players due to the new salary limits.

    And the player most likely to leave is Saul, freeing up a reported £115,000-per-week.

    FUN IN THE SUN

    Jesse Lingard made his first appearance for Manchester United since January as the Red Devils beat Derby 2-1.

    He started on the bench against Wayne Rooney’s Derby County but impressed when he came on.

    Lingard set up the move that ended with Facundo Pellestri scoring United’s second – the Uruguayan teenager returning from a loan spell at Alaves.

    Lingad then curled a shot against the crossbar with 14 minutes to go as he aims to stake a claim for a first team place this season.

    Tahith Chong opened the scoring on a good day for United's young team.

    RAM-SHAMBLES

    Furious Manchester United fans have slammed MUTV after experiencing issues with their match stream for today’s pre-season clash with Derby County.

    Subscribers tuned in to the match to get a look at how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are shaping up for the new season.

    Tahith Chong gave the Red Devils the lead after 18 minutes.

    But many supporters weren’t able to see it.

    One wrote on Twitter: “MUTV already down. Don’t know why I try with this football club.”

    While another fumed: “You lot at #MUTV need to get a grip. What’s the point of paying to watch a game when you can’t watch the game?”

    A third added: “MUTV not even working. Daylight robbery.”

    COLE VISION

    Manchester United legend Andy Cole has urged Mason Greenwood to cement himself as a number nine this season.

    Greenwood, 19, broke into the first team in 2019 and has spent the last two seasons largely playing on the right-wing.

    Speaking on MUTV prior to the Reds' pre-season fixture against Derby on Sunday, Cole said; "You could say that [he's a victim of his versatility].

    "As he gets further on in his career, I think he's going to want to nail down one position. Not play off the right or play off the left but he'll want to nail down a position that he feels most comfortable in.

    "Sometimes when you have a top player who can play in a few positions, the manager wants him to help. 'Can you play here today, can you play on the left, play on the right?'

    "Meanwhile he might just want to play centre forward."

    MORR TO GIVE

    Ravel Morrison starts today for Derby, with the former Manchester United ace looking to win a contract at Pride Park.

    Derby boss Wayne Rooney will be casting his eye over a number of free agents, including Morrison, as the club are currently under a transfer embargo, which the manager has admitted is 'frustrating'.

    Former United man Morrison has played 98 games for 12 clubs over the past 11 years. At the age of 28, it would seem likely that this will be one of his last chances at success in football.

    Here's how some fans have reacted to the news on Twitter.

    One said: "Prime Morrison under Rooney? Inject it."

    Another added: "So happy for Ravel. All the best to him."

    ROONEY ON MENGI

    Teden Mengi starts against Derby today, having enjoyed a loan spell under Wayne Rooney's tutelage last season.

    Rooney is looking forward to coming up against his former player and the rest of the United youngsters on show at Pride Park.

    As quoted by Manutd.com, Rooney said: "Teden (Mengi) came in [on loan last season] and did really well.

    "As an 18-year-old last season, I threw him into some very difficult games in the Championship against very direct teams. It was a quick learning curve for him and I saw some improvement in him before he got injured and went back to United.

    "It'll be interesting to see how he does today and for us it's a challenge to play against some good players, not only Teden but players like James Garner who did very well for Nottingham Forest last season."

  • Kealan Hughes

    TEAM TO FACE DERBY

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Juan Mata as his captain for the match against Derby.

    And the starting line-up is packed full of young talent, with bright prospects Tahith Chong, Teden Mengi and James Garner featuring.

    Here is the line-up in full: Heaton, Wan-Bissaka, Mengi, Tuanzebe, Williams, Levitt, Garner, Elanga, Mata (c), Chong; Greenwood.

    Subs: Grant, Bishop, Telles, Fish, Bernard, Lingard, Andreas, Pellistri, Matic, Hannibal, Galbraith, Shoretire, Hugill.

    LEEDS KEEN ON JAMES

    Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is "forever interested" in Dan James, says The Athletic's Phil Hay.

    James came close to joining the Whites in January 2019 before moving to Old Trafford the following summer.

    But he has mainly been on the fringes at United, and Jadon Sancho's arrival hints at his game time being reduced even more.

    Amid rumours linking James with a switch to Elland Road, Hay told The Phil Hay Show: "You’ll probably remember last summer before they did the deal for Raphinha, they were looking into the possibility of taking Dan James on loan from Manchester United.

    “I don’t think it was ever really an option because it didn’t seem as though Solskjaer wanted him to go but Raphinha was very last-minute.”

    “I get the feeling that Bielsa will be consistently interested in Dan James because he was very, very big on him at the time they almost got him from Swansea.”

    UNITED'S BLUE BLOW

    Chelsea have joined the race for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, report Marca.

    The news will come as a bitter blow for Manchester United who have been edging closer to a £50million deal for the Frenchman.

    SunSport revealed on Saturday United's deal for the World Cup winner is 'all but done'.

    But the West Londoners have emerged as late contenders and could scupper the transfer.

    If they can fend off the reported interest from the Blues, United look set to hand the 28-year-old a £50m fee for the centre-back having just one year left on his Bernabeu contract.

    TRIPPIER REPLACEMENT TARGETED

    Atletico Madrid have reportedly made Norwich City right-back Max Aarons a key target, report The Mirror.

    That hints at a possible Kieran Trippier move, with the England star linked to Old Trafford.

    United have reportedly had one bid rejected for Trippier but are expected to return with a new offer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to strengthen his defence.

    Aarons has earned himself plenty of admirers across Europe after three strong seasons as the starting right-back at Carrow Road, with Bayern Munich, Barcelona and United themselves previously linked with moves alongside the Gunners.
