    GOOD MORNING FOOTY FANS

    Juventus are reportedly ready to SELL Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

    AS claims the Manchester United and Real Madrid icon could be set for a new club after a disappointing season under Andrea Pirlo.

    Juventus are ready to accept bids of just £21.5million for the superstar.

    But interested clubs will have to dig deep for Ronaldo's annual wages, which AS adds to be a staggering £75m.

    Meanwhile, Chelsea star Fikayo Tomori is reportedly set to join AC Milan in a permanent £27million deal.

    The Italian club have decided to activate a clause to clinch the defender's signing after impressing on loan, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

    The defender will reportedly sign a five-year deal with the Italian side to bring his time at Chelsea to an end.

    Finally, Man United are eyeing a shock move for Spurs captain Hugo Lloris.

    L’Equipe claims the French goalkeeper is ready to leave Tottenham this summer.

    And United want him to replace out-of-favour David de Gea.

    Lloris believes the Red Devils can offer him one final chance of landing silverware.

    Meanwhile, Spurs would look to replace Lloris with Lille’s Mike Maignan.

    HAND OF QUAD

    John Stones reckons quadruple-chasing Manchester City can help England win Euro 2020.

    He said: “If we can bring that winning mentality into the England squad it would be invaluable.

    “It would be massive for us if we can keep pushing and keep fighting at City until the end of the season and see what happens.

    “I’d love everyone in the England squad to be coming in camp after winning something but that’s not possible.”

    HAND OF GOD

    Ben Godfrey has made it his mission to ensure standards do not slip this week as England U21s look to exorcise some demons.

    Godfrey — part of a four-man leadership team along with Tom Davies, Aaron Ramsdale and Eddie Nketiah — said: “There’s a few of us to help keep those standards high and help people out when they need it.

    “Being a leader is something that  I enjoy doing — setting standards and helping people, driving people forward.

    “We’ve got a lot of young players so it’s important as a senior member that I do that.”

    FROM SUNSPORT’S CHARLIE WYETT

    Maheta Molango’s CV makes him the ideal man to succeed Gordon Taylor as PFA chief executive.

    He understands the game as a former player but also has had insight into law, business, tax and transfers — and he even scouted players for an English club.

    Indeed, SunSport can reveal he even advised Mesut Ozil ahead of his move from Real Madrid to Arsenal.

    OLE’S ALRIGHT

    David Beckham claims former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing a great job at Man Utd.

    The Inter Miami chief told ESPN: “I’ve seen some of the criticism. 

    “But I suppose when you are a manager of Man United when they’ve had success over the years that they’ve had, there was always going to be a point where people get criticised. 

    “Whether it’s the players, whether it’s the owners, whether it’s the manager.

    “Ole’s been in the game long enough to be able to take any kind of criticism. 

    “He’s very quiet, he gets on with his job, and I think he’s done an incredible job down at United.

    “The results are starting to show that. 

    “Hopefully, it continues because the fans love Ole, we all love Ole and we all want him to do well. 

    “So when the criticism comes, he’s one person that can take it.”

    ZAK RACE

    Man Utd have reportedly been joined by neighbours Man City in the chase for Denis Zakaria.

    The Premier League giants are locked in a battle to sign the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder.

    Man City reportedly enquired about the midfielder last summer and are said to have renewed their interest.

    The midfielder has just over one year left on his contract and could be offloaded for a reduced fee this summer.

    FER REAL

    Rio Ferdinand admits he feels sorry for Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek.

    He told Vibe With Five: "I feel for him. I don't care who you are – if you're playing the odd two minutes here and there, three minutes here and there, you cannot perform. I don't care what level of player you are.

    "I don't think he's been helped in terms of team selection and opportunities so I don't think it's fair to say he's underperforming because he's not been put in a position to perform yet on a consistent basis. 

    "I really do feel for him but it would be interesting to hear what he was sold and told on the way in because the lack of opportunities, I don't think he'd have come here if he'd known that."

    MOUSS FEAR

    Ex-Celtic and Fulham striker Moussa Dembele is being monitored after dramatically COLLAPSING in training with Atletico Madrid.

    The Frenchman – who is on loan at the Spanish giants from Lyon – was shown fainting as he underwent stretching exercises.

    He regained consciousness whilst on the pitch and was able to walk off under his own steam.

    The striker's condition will now be closely monitored.

    And he was scheduled to undergo tests this afternoon with Atletico's medical team.

    BARGAIN HUNT

    Everyone loves a bargain – and more managers than ever before will be looking for a snip this summer.

    When it comes to the Championship, there are set to be over 100 stars available for absolutely NOTHING come the end of June.

    Some are untried and untested youngsters just waiting to be given an opportunity.

    Others have years of Premier League experience to fall back on, as well as plenty of international know-how having played numerous times for their respective nations.

    KANE WELL ABLE

    Premier League clubs have been given a boost with Real Madrid reportedly preferring to sign Harry Kane over Erling Haaland this summer.

    SER Deportivos claims the Spurs star has emerged as Los Blancos’ No1 target.

    That means the likes of Man United, Chelsea and Man City could be left to battle it out for Haaland.

    And it would also be good news for PSG in their efforts to keep Kylian Mbappe.

    FROM SUNSPORT’S MARTIN LIPTON

    The Prem's Big Six are braced for frustration and disappointment over their attempts to force radical change on the top flight.

    Leading clubs now recognise there is no chance they can push through a reduction of the League from 20 teams to 18.

    While proposed revamps of Uefa competitions promise more money from 2024, the Big Six fear they will hit a brick wall in their efforts to get the green light to make more cash from selling rights to their own games either overseas or on club channels.

    And it sets up a further squabble between the Big Six and the rest of the Prem starting at this week’s ‘shareholder’ meeting of the 20 clubs.

    Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez says his government will lift restrictions on flights from the United Kingdom.

    PATS THE WAY

    Salzburger Nachrichten claims the Zambia striker, who has 20 goals in 18 games, is being lined up for a stunning Premier League switch.

    Daka has successfully filled the boots of Erling Haaland at the Austrian club.

    And there is also said to be interest from Man City and Liverpool in the manhailed as the new Samuel Eto'o.

    GETTING SHIRTY

    BECKS APPEAL

    Kieran Gibbs has signed a pre-contract agreement with David Beckham's Inter Miami and will join up with new boss Phil Neville at the end of this season.

    The 31-year-old former Arsenal left-back has made more than a century of appearances for Albion but has played second fiddle to Conor Townsend this season and is ready for a fresh challenge in the MLS.

    Ex-Man United duo Beckham and Neville are hoping to make a real mark on the competition this term, with stars including Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain already on the books.

    And Gibbs will become the latest Englishman to move to Miami following ex-Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross.

    WAT LUCK

    Ollie Watkins admits he was stunned to get his first England call-up – after having a stinker when he knew a place in the squad was within reach.

    The ex-Brentford star said: “To be honest, I didn't really expect to get called up.

    “We all got a text, I think there was seven of us that got a text a few days before and I had a bit of a stinker at Newcastle away so I didn't really expect to get called up.

    “And when I did find out, you know I was over the moon.”

    BEEKS AND TROUGHS

    Man Utd could use Donny van de Beek as a makeweight for either Erling Haaland or Jadon Sancho.

    90Min claims the Dutch midfielder is of interest to German giants Borussia Dortmund.

    And after failing to make an impact in his first season at Old Trafford, Van de Beek could be sacrificed to help Ole Gunnar Solskjaer land one of Haaland or Sancho.

    PERSONAL TUCH

    Frank Lampard knocked Chelsea's older players' noses out of joint – but Thomas Tuchel has resolved the situation.

    So claims Rio Ferdinand, who told his Vibe With Five YouTube channel: "I think bringing experience back into the team and giving them more responsibility has been a big difference to Frank’s. 

    "Frank definitely went with the younger players and I think that knocked a few of the older players’ noses out of joint and they may have reacted negatively towards that. 

    "That created a problem, but these players have come back in.

    “Tuchel has rounded up the experienced players and told them 'you’re here, you’re my mainstay and the younger players you’re going to be a part of that as well’.”

    FAN’S VIEW

    Man United should SACK Ole Gunnar Solskjaer if they don’t win this season’s Europa League.

    Getting into the top four is NOT a sign of success.

    And it is staggering to hear Ole say that winning trophies does not represent progress on the pitch.

    GREEN WITH ENVY

    Manchester United star Mason Greenwood has been forced to pull out of England U21s squad due to injury.

    The striker has since been replaced by Norwich City playmaker Todd Cantwell.

    Greenwood will now return to Carrington as he looks to recover in time for United's next game against Brighton on April 4.

    ART DEALER

    SunSport's David Seager says: "Mikel Arteta has a huge decision to make over whether Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can lead the line in his starting XI.

    "In my own mind I have been weighing up what he offers in the role and comparing it to what Alexandre Lacazette offers and, in truth, trying to convince myself that our Gabonese talisman edged it.

    "No Arsenal supporter wants to see another Mesut Ozil situation on the horizon, so I am sure most would love to see a happy Auba, smiling on the pitch and scoring for fun.

    "However, this is perhaps not the player we have at present."
