    CRISS CROSS

    Manchester United reportedly face competition from Tottenham in the race to prise defender Cristian Romero away from Serie A this summer.

    The 23-year-old centre-back, who is halfway through a two-year loan spell at Atalanta from Juventus, has earned rave reviews in Italy.

    Atalanta are keen to activate his £13.6million option to buy option clause a year ahead of schedule.

    And according to Calciomercato, they could look to then offload him for a heavy profit as competition for his signature hots up.

    They state that he could be sold for a £39m fee, with any deal to potentially rise to £51m with add-ons.

    Manchester United and Tottenham are claimed to have both expressed an interest in signing him.

    GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS

    JADON SANCHO has completed his medical at Manchester United with an official announcement of his £73million move expected in the next 48 hours.

    Just two days after crucially missing a penalty kick in the Euro 2020 final shoot-out against Italy, Sancho was at United’s Carrington training ground on Tuesday to take the next step in his career.

    There was no problem with the medical.

    And now an official unveiling of him in the club’s new kit is imminent.

    This ends a year-long pursuit of the Borussia Dormund winger after United failed to land him last summer.

    The Bundesliga club were asking over £100million which United refused to pay for such a young player.

    They were always confident of the deal eventually going through with Sancho himself determined to make the move.

    The 21-year-old will now have three weeks off before returning to training with his fellow Three-Lions stars Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.

    Having come through Watford and then Manchester City’s academy, Sancho was a star in the Bundesliga scoring 50 goals in 137 appearances for Dortmund.

    The signing is a major boost for Solskjaer who just missed out on his first trophy as manager last season with his own penalty heartache in the Europa League Final.

    RASH SURGERY

    England and Man United star Marcus Rashford will be out until October after deciding to undergo shoulder surgery.

    The striker is now set to miss the first two months of the new Premier League season after being plagued by the problem this year.

    Rashford will go under the knife at the end of July after further scans showed extensive damage to the area.

    The future is bright for English football — you only have to look at the number of excellent young players coming out of your academies to realise that.

    Sure, there is sadness and frustration at losing the Euro 2020 final to Italy.

    But if I compare the academies at Premier League clubs now to how they were when I first arrived in England in 2004, then the improvement is vast.

    I hope leading Premier League managers don’t just think of their own clubs but also the national team and that they give these young English guys more chances.

    Harry Maguire has paid tribute to England’s penalty takers — and admitted he would not have taken one for his country at such a young age.

    Maguire said: “When I was 19 or 20, I would have been standing there saying ‘I don’t want to take one’.

    "There is no chance I would have been putting my hand up at their age.

    “So look at the courage and bravery of these young lads, look at the age of Bukayo, Jadon and Marcus.

    “The things I have gone through have made me more confident and have given me belief.

    “I am able to handle those situations better, now I am happy to take one and I executed it well.

    “These people who are being abusive would not be able to handle the pressure.

    “It is the highest amount of pressure you will feel, so to do it at their age and to show such bravery should be applauded.

    “I spoke with the three lads afterwards. I have checked up with them and seen how they are but they are courageous lads.

    “They should be applauded rather than criticised.

    “I took a penalty in a play-off final shootout for Sheffield United when I was 19 but doing it for England is completely different.”

    Harry Maguire spoke of his joy tonight at being reunited with his family – and seeing one of his girls walk for the first time.

    Maguire said: “It has been tough in that department – not seeing your families or your kids.

    "I have come home and one of my little ones is walking. I did not see that. It is all part and parcel of the journey.

    “What we did in camp was the correct decision because we didn’t have any positive tests which was important for the journey and creating history like we did.”

    Harry Maguire believes Euro heartache means England will be even better prepared to win the World Cup.

    He said: “All the disappointments tend to stick around and you always think about them. I still think about Russia and I will still think about this final for many years to come.

    “I wish we could have made it a memorable night. We did everything we could but it was not enough. It still feels raw. I’m still feeling the emotion and I’m still feeling the  disappointment.

    “To not lose a game over the tournament and not come out as champions is really disappointing.

    “But we are in  a lot better place compared to after Russia.

    “Hopefully we will come back from Qatar in an even better place than now.

    “This tournament we won three knockout games and lost one on penalties. This shows the way we have gone forward as a team.

    “We are a young team with a bad experience of losing the final. But we will learn from it.

    “For me personally, I felt a lot better playing in the final than I did against Croatia in the semi-finals in terms of my mental state, confidence and belief.

    “I am sure if we get to another knockout game, the lads who have got to this tournament will learn and improve. The World Cup is only 16 months away.”

    Furious Harry Maguire called for a clampdown on social media giants — saying they make it too easy for racists to abuse footballers online.

    He said: “Something needs to be done. The companies need to verify every account.

    “It is too easy to troll and abuse. To be racist is just too easy to be done and get away with.

    “The amount of times we lose a football match with Manchester United and it happens — something needs to be changed.

    “There are so many good sides to social media. We want to show fans what we are doing in-camp and want to interact and tell them how we feel.

    “There is a negative side but it can be stopped and changed. We need it to change.”

    England ace Harry Maguire has told how his dad Alan was left with suspected broken ribs by ticketless yobs who stormed Wembley.

    Maguire said: “It was not a nice experience — it shook him up. But he was fortunate as every game he has been to he has had my nephew or one of my kids on his shoulders.

    “So I’m thankful that did not happen as it could have been a really serious moment.

    “My dad was in the stampede. I have not spoken with him too much but I am pleased my kids didn’t go to the game. 

    “It was scary — he said he was scared and I don’t want anyone to experience that at a football match.

    “I have seen a lot of videos and have spoken to Dad and my family. It was my dad and agent who suffered the most.

    “I hope we can learn from this and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

    SHAW THING

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Luke Shaw’s Euro 2020 heroics.

    And he believes the left-back can continue his terrific form back at Man United.

    Solskjaer said: “I’m so happy for Luke. I was watching it and ‘what’s just happened?'”

    “He started the attack and we’ve encouraged him to get into the last third.

    “We know how technically gifted he is and skilful he is and he hit the ball very, very sweetly. 

    “He keeps his eye on the ball, straight laces and it’s margins again – off the post and in, not off the post and out. 

    “That’s football for you. Luke deserves all the luck he can get. He’s had a tremendous couple of years with us.”

    RASH DECISION

    Marcus Rashford will be the first one to put his hand up to take a penalty kick if it ever gets to a shoot-out with Man United.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “You learn from it and definitely come back stronger. I’ve not seen many people, at this club anyway, who lay down and say I’ll not take a penalty anymore. 

    “I know Marcus is going to put his hand up and say he wants to take one for us.

    “You know the thing is when you step up to take a penalty, I think you’ve already won.

     “You’ve taken on the responsibility and I’m sure many of the players are hoping I don’t want to take a penalty.

    “So I think it’s a great character trait to step up and say I will deal with it, and the consequences. You might be the hero or the one who misses. That’s football.”

    BYE BAILLY

    Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has bid a temporary farewell to Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo with both stars jetting off to Japan.

    The Red Devils duo are due to represent the Ivory Coast at the Tokyo Olympics this month.

    And Bailly, 27, is reported to be joining his national team as an 'over-age' player with a limit on the number of players over 24 included in the Games' football competition.

    Solskjaer said: "I think everyone when they grow up, watches the Olympics and can see Usain Bolt or Ryan Giggs. I saw him play in the Olympics [for Great Britain].

    "When your country calls you up, I think I can't stand in the way of that boyhood dream being fulfilled.

    "Of course, Eric is over-age, but I think they can see the value of him and that's why they have brought him in.

    "Amad (19) is a young, exciting prospect. It'll be good to see them. It'll be their pre-season, but they've got to come back with a medal.

    "We need a nice feel about the place when they come back!"

    PEN MARC

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Marcus Rashford will keep taking penalties for Man United following his Euro 2020 final penalty miss.

    Rashford's effort hit the post while Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka's attempts were saved by Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

    The result at Wembley led to Italy claiming their second European Championship crown.

    Solskjaer told United's web site: "When you step up to take a penalty, I think you've already won.

    "You've taken on the responsibility and I'm sure many of the players are hoping, 'I don't want to take a penalty'.

    "So I think it's a great character trait to step up and say, 'I will deal with it, [and] the consequences."

    LOAN MOVES

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is predicting more of his young stars could be set for temporary spells away from Carrington.

    But many of the United boss's starlets are expected to play a part in the club's pre-season games.

    The team are due to play Derby in a friendly fixture on Saturday.

    Solskjaer said: "We’ve already lined up a few (loans) and some of them are still in discussions between us and the players about where is the best place to go.”

    “We’ve got six weeks together before the league starts and a couple of training camps here in the UK.

    “It’s the most sensible thing, we felt, being in and around here. You don’t get the, how do you say, aggravation of: 'Are we green, red or amber [in terms of travelling abroad]?'It’s just the way the world works at the moment.  

    “The young kids will definitely be part of the Derby game and then we’ve got another couple of games coming up and they can be part of it.”

    The trio were on the receiving end of abusive messages following their penalty misses against Italy at Wembley.

    On Instagram, Pogba wrote:"You win some, you lose some. You took the courage to take the penalties and you showed your worth to help your country reach the final.

    "We cannot tolerate or stand for racism anymore and we will never stop combatting it.

    "You boys should hold your heads high and be proud of your confidence. You are examples of this beautiful game. Never forget that.

    VARANE VALUE

    Real Madrid reckons Man United's £38.5million offer (45million Euros) for Raphael Varane is insufficient, according to reports.

    And the LaLiga giants are thought to be holding out for at least £43m for the France centre-back according to Mundo Deportivo via Sport Witness.

    Varane, 28, is thought to be keen on a move to Old Trafford following his ten-year spell at Madrid.

    However, Carlo Ancelotti's side hopes to retain the player.

    And club officials are thought to have offered the star a new deal that includes an annual salary of £6m.

    The Les Bleus player's contract with Madrid is due to expire at the end of next season.
