    ING IN TO WIN IT

    Manchester United will reportedly attempt to sign Southampton striker Danny Ings this summer – despite Edinson Cavani’s new deal.

    Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking to add to his striking department for months to help close the gap on champions Man City.

    The Telegraph states United have enquired about a swoop for Ings.

    The 28-year-old only has a year left on his Southampton contract and has yet to agree to an extension.

    And due to the threat of losing him for free next season looming, United know Southampton will be put under pressure to sell if a formal offer is placed.

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Liverpool overtook Leicester in fourth place after beating Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor, which means that victory against Crystal Palace on Sunday in the last match of the season will see them playing in the Champions League next season.

    Roberto Firmino opened the scoring just two minutes before half-time with a neat finish.

    Nat Phillips doubled the visitors' lead after 52 minutes whereas Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sealed victory two minutes before full-time.

    Arsenal, on the other hand, kept their Europa Conference League qualification hopes alive following a dramatic 3-1 win over Palace at Selhurst Park.

    Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring five minutes before half-time with a fine finish and Christian Benteke equalised in the second half.

    It looked like the Gunners were going to drop even more Premier League points, but Gabriel Martinelli put them back ahead in the first minute of stoppage time before Pepe sealed the win for the visitors soon after.

    Meanwhile, SunSport can exclusively report that Chelsea are set to launch an £80million bid for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho in what could spark an intense bidding war with Manchester United.

    Blues manager Thomas Tuchel is a major admirer of Sancho, who has stood out in the Bundesliga this season.

    The 21-year-old England international appears set to leave Dortmund and join the Premier League at the end of the season.

    Chelsea and United are also set for a transfer battle with Manchester City, who are planning to hold talks with Tottenham over star striker Harry Kane.

    According to The Guardian, City are indeed keen on landing Kane as they are seeking for someone to replace the departing Sergio Aguero in the summer.

    However, the Citizens are aware that chairman Daniel Levy doesn't want to sell the star striker and has proven to be a tough negotiator in the past.

    The England international, however, is open to moving to the Etihad at the end of the season.

    Meanwhile, the Daily Mail report there has been acceptance throughout Tottenham in recent weeks that Kane will leave at the end of the season.

    And Spurs would be willing to swap the 27-year-old with City star Gabriel Jesus or United ace Anthony Martial.

    WIL I NEVER

    Allan Saint-Maximin has called on Newcastle to sign Arsenal loan star Joe Willock on a permanent deal this summer.

    He told Sky Sports: When they asked me about a new deal, I feel that I have to give. Sometimes when people give you something, you have to give back.

    "But before I signed it, I had always said Newcastle should not be fighting against relegation every year. We have to fight for the top 10, it's what the supporters deserve.

    "Sometimes you have to think about your future, you can see Leicester winning the FA Cup, you play football to win trophies, not to fight to stay up.

    "We have to buy more players like Joe Willock, he can be really great for the team and for myself, I am 24 years old, and have to think about the national team, about winning trophies, and hope the club can give me that.

    "My relationship is really good with Joe inside and outside the pitch, and you can see how that helps a team when you have players like that – like Harry Kane and Heung-min Son at Tottenham."

    GOAL GETTERS

    Bruno Fernandes has called on his team-mates to start converting their chances if they want to win the Europa League.

    And Fernandes, 26, wants to see improvements in their final two matches.

    He said: “We didn’t score the chances we had. Sometimes it’s our problem in games we draw and lose. We create many chances but we don’t score.

    “I think in the future I think this problem will change and now our focus has to be on the next game against Wolves.

    “We then have three days before the final in the Europa League and I think we have enough to prepare well.”

    NO LOW BLOW

    Now explaining his U-turn, the soon-to-be departed Low said: “They have played a very strong season. They can add a lot to the team in terms of leadership on the pitch.

    “They know our mindset, philosophy, and are respected by the other players because of what they have accomplished.”

    RON WAY BACK?

    Manchester United icon Gary Pallister believes club legend Cristiano Ronaldo could return to Old Trafford in the summer.

    Commenting on his future, former United defender Pallister told Compare.bet: "I could see him coming back.

    "He had a great time at Old Trafford, and coming back here would suit Cristiano with Juve struggling with Champions League qualification.

    "He didn’t have issues here the first time round under the leadership of Sir Alex, and you can see that he still looks after himself and has that hunger.

    "He still wants to compete at the top level and play Champions League football, and if he comes to United you have to find a place for Cristiano Ronaldo.

    “He’s a magnificent player and still has that hunger to prove himself as the best player that’s ever walked this planet.

    "I think he’s on record as wanting to play until he’s 40 – sometimes when you’re bringing a player back to a club you worry about the hunger and desire if it’s something seen as more of a final payday.

    “You see the way he talks and trains, he’s still keen and can be one of the best players in the world at United.”
