    NOT SO KEANE ON HIM

    Scott McTominay has hit back at Roy Keane for the Manchester United's criticism of the midfielder during the club's 4-2 defeat to Liverpool.

    He said, per the Mirror: "People talk. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and you have to respect that.

    “But I’m not going to spit my dummy out and cry over ­something Roy Keane says.

    “If that’s what he thinks, then that’s what he thinks.

    “For me, it isn’t a drama. I’d be a fool if I went home worrying about what people think about me.”

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    SunSport can exclusively reveal Man Utd’s England stars plan to charm Harry Kane at the Euros and get him to join the Red Devils.

    Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford will use their friendship with Tottenham’s £150million-rated striker, 27, to make him choose United over rivals Manchester City and Chelsea.

    England skipper Kane’s desire to leave Tottenham has been the talk of the Old Trafford dressing room, with Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani also speaking up.

    A source said: “All the players have been discussing Harry leaving Spurs. The English players plan to work on him when they meet up.

    “They know how good he is and though he would present competition to someone like Marcus, they are excited at the thought of playing with him. Edinson has not been shy in telling everyone how highly he rates him.

    “His English isn’t great – but he can get his message across. Harry is a similar kind of player, so all the players think he would fit well into their system as they like to play on the counter-attack, like Spurs do.”

    Meanwhile, Man United forward Marcus Rashford has refused to rule out a move abroad in the future.

    He told The Guardian:”I would never say no.

    “Other than United? I’m a big fan of Real Madrid and Barcelona, because they’ve always had great players and played attractive football.

    “Everybody watches Real Madrid and Barcelona.”

    Finally, Bruno Fernandes is ‘close’ to signing a bumper new £200,000-a-week contract at Manchester United, according to reports.

    The Red Devils are set to double the Portuguese playmaker’s current wages, such has been his impact since joining in January 2020.

    Fernandes, 26, still has four years remaining on his current deal.

    According to the Mirror, Fernandes’ agent Miguel Pinto has flown to Manchester to ‘step up talks’ with the Red Devils.

    And, all being well, the contract should be signed BEFORE Fernandes plays for his country at the Euros.

    NOT CUP FOR IT

    UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin has slammed the idea of staging a World Cup every two years as “completely irrational”.

    He told SunSport: “FIFA can do a feasibility study about that but it’s impossible that the World Cup would happen every two years.

    “This would, from one point of view, cause a complete disruption of the calendar.

    “From the other point of view players would be exposed to injuries if they played a month-long tournament every second summer and will not have time to recover from the long season.

    “The idea to have the World Cup every two years is completely irrational.”

    EXCLUSIVE BY DUNCAN WRIGHT

    Brighton defender and Man United target Ben White is in contention for a shock England call-up for Euro 2020.

    Harry Maguire’s ankle injury plus form concerns about Eric Dier have led to Gareth Southgate suddenly looking at other options.

    And White, 23, is the player who has caught his eye the most.

    Southgate even made a trip down to the south coast to watch him in action earlier this month.

    SunSport understands the ball-playing defender has been told to not to fly off on holiday this week after completing his Premier League season at Arsenal.

    Instead he will now wait anxiously to discover if he has got the nod for a potential England debut in next month’s tournament.

    Juve bigwigs know that a Ronaldo departure could be in the offing, and are planning for such a scenario.

    And according to Spanish paper Sport, the Italian giants are plotting a move for Barca's No7 Griezmann.

    HAA LA LAND

    Erling Haaland equalled Ronaldo's 24-year-old record with his first of two goals against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon.

    Haaland is a target for numerous clubs including Manchester United and Chelsea.

    But Dortmund are adamant he is not for sale this summer.

    PLAY BAL

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could give Manchester United wonderkid Hannibal Mejbri his Premier League debut against Wolves.

    And Shola Shoretire could also feature as the Red Devils prepare for their Europa League final with Villarreal.

    Solskjaer said: “They’ve had good seasons [in the academy].

    "Both of them. Hannibal and Shola, both of them will be involved. Maybe we can get some minutes in them.

    "We want to go into the [Europa League] final with lots of energy but also confidence, so we will freshen up a few faces on Sunday.

    "We want to enjoy it and give a few minutes to some who might need it before the final."

    RED REVOLUTION

    Manchester United are expected to spend big this summer as they look to bridge the gap on champions Manchester City.

    Harry Kane, Cristiano Ronaldo and Declan Rice have all been heavily linked with moves but they are just three of FIVE big names on United's radar.

    LaLiga stars Raphael Varane and Kieran Trippier are also said to be appealing to the Red Devils with fans hoping club chiefs will back Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    Here is how Man Utd could line up at the beginning of next season.

    PRESS IT

    Christen Press has fuelled rumours of a potential Manchester United exit with a cryptic Instagram post.

    The 32-year posted a pic with team-mates saying she's "grateful" for an incredible season and for how much she's "learned" from them.

    She wrote: "Grateful for an incredible season with Man United Women.

    "I learned so much playing alongside such a humble, ambitious, and hardworking group. You girls keep me young! GGMU!!"

    DIM VIEW

    Harry Kane should be allowed to leave Tottenham for the good of the club, ex-Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov has claimed.

    He told Betfair: "I saw the clip of [Kane] waving and clapping the fans after the defeat to Aston Villa and he could have just been thanking the fans for their support, after all that was the first time they were back at the stadium.

    "I can see why that could be seen as him saying goodbye, but let’s not jump to conclusions and at the end of the day he's still at the club and he's got a big couple of months coming up.

    "It's never a good thing for a player and the club to fight, if a player has expressed they want to leave then they have made up their mind.

    "If a club fights and makes a move away complicated for the player then it's not a pleasant situation for everyone involved, including the fans and other players.

    "If Kane has told the club he wants to leave then they should find a reasonable way to agree what the fee should be and how to part ways."

    STAR IN THE MAKING

    Ryan Giggs' son Zach has been called up by Wales to face England this month.

    The Manchester United teenager has been named in a 22-man squad made up of Under-15s and U16 players for the fixture with the Three Lions on May 30.

    Zach, who can play as a centre-back or full-back, has been training with United’s academy at Carrington.

    The Dragons are also set to face Northern Ireland on Tuesday 1 June.

    Wales senior national manager Giggs has been replaced by Robert Page for Euro 2020.

    That is due to the Premier League icon being due to appear at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday after being charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her sister and with controlling or coercive behaviour.

    Giggs denies the charges.

    FERGIE ON MESSI

    Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted he made a mistake around marking Lionel Messi in the 2011 Champions League final between Manchester United and Barcelona.

    Barca won the game 3-1 with Messi netting the second in a special display from Pep Guardiola's side.

    The ex-Man Utd boss said: “ I should have changed at half time and put Ji Sung Park on Messi.

    'If I had played him against Messi I think we would have beat them.”

    HEARTBROKEN HARRY

    Heartbroken Harry Maguire will miss the Europa League Final in Gdansk due to his ankle ligament injury.

    Solskjaer said: “He’s walking but it’s a long way from walking to running. To be honest I don’t think we’ll see him Gdansk, no.

    “I’m going to give him until Tuesday night, the last training session to be out there. Steadily but surely he’s improving but ligaments take time to heal.”

    SOLSKJAER ON WOLVES CLASH

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his take on Sunday's trip to Molineux to take on Wolves.

    It is the final Premier League game of the Red Devils' season, but comes just three days before the Europa League final against Villarreal.

    Discussing the Wolves clash, the Norwegian said: "We want to go into the final with lots of energy but also confidence, so we will freshen up a few faces on Sunday.

    "We want to enjoy it and give a few minutes to some who might need it before the final."

    ACROSS CRIS

    Manchester United are ready to snap up Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus this summer, according to reports.

    And should the Portuguese icon be available, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 'would not hesitate' in sanctioning a move for his former team-mate.

    Ronaldo, 36, is set to consider his options after Sunday's Serie A final day, following a desperately disappointing season for the Old Lady.

    Juve currently sit fifth in the table, trailing the Champions League places by a point.

    But even if Andrea Pirlo's side do clinch a top four berth, Ronaldo may opt to leave a year before his contract expires.

    And according to The Athletic, Man United chiefs are 'monitoring' their former No7's situation with increasing interest.
