    OUS THAT THEN?

    Barcelona are attempting to tie rumoured Manchester United target Ousmane Dembele down to a new contract, reports claim.

    The Red Devils were strongly linked with a move for the French winger in the summer.

    Amid suggestions that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side could try and secure a loan deal in January, Mundo Deportivo claim that Ronald Koeman's side want to secure Dembele's future, with the World Cup winner's contract set to expire in 2022.

    GREAL DEAL

    Former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane has gushed over 'outstanding' rumoured Red Devils target Jack Grealish.

    The Irishman said on ITV: “He takes risks. What I love about Jack – and I worked with him at Aston Villa – is his courage.

    “Wanting the ball in tight areas, dealing with the ball, getting you up the pitch, winning free-kicks, courage, he’s quicker than you think.

    “The way he’s improved over the past six months has been fantastic. We keep talking about England winning something or getting to the next level, I think they need a player like Jack to do that. He was outstanding.”

    WALK-ED INTO TROUBLE

    Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane could soon find himself in hot water, after being the subject of a complaint from Manchester City.

    Appearing on Sky Sports, the fiery Irishman branded defender Kyle Walker an 'idiot' after the England star had given away a penalty against Liverpool.

    And according to the Mail, City believe that Keane 'crossed the line', and have lodged an official complaint with the broadcasting giants.

    LENDING ADE

    Former Arsenal star Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed that he advised Thomas Partey to snub interest from Chelsea and Manchester United in favour of a move to the Gunners.

    The Togolese star said at an event in Ghana: “He told me that some clubs in England, namely Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, and others have shown interest in him and he needs advice.

    “I advised him to go to Arsenal because I have had the opportunity to play there and I think it will be good for his development.

    “Arsenal is more than a club, it is a family and I’m impressed with his performances so far in the Premier League.”

    PERFECT PAIR

    N'Golo Kante has put club rivalry aside to reveal his pleasure at playing alongside Paul Pogba again.

    The Chelsea star grabbed the only goal of the game as France defeated Portugal 1-0 last night.

    Speaking to TF1 show ‘Telefoot’, he said: “He’s (Pogba) been injured for a while and it had been a while since we had played together.

    “We remember the World Cup that we played together. It’s a pleasure to play with Paul. On the pitch, we felt great. I’m satisfied with the performance and the performance of the team. We were at the level we needed to be at.

    “There’s a lot expected of us. We’re the world champion and the European Championship will be another challenge, but it’s certain that we’re a great team.”

    HOT SCHOLES

    Bruno Fernandes has claimed Paul Scholes was better than Frank Lampard AND Steven Gerrard – and revealed he hopes to emulate the Old Trafford legend.

    He told the UTD Podcast: “I think Scholes was one of the best midfielders in the world.

    For England, a lot of people talk about Frank Lampard because he scored a lot of goals of course, one of the best in England too, you have Steven Gerrard too.

    “But I think Scholes is the one who makes more difference than anyone else. And before everyone starts talking about this, I haven’t seen every midfielder in England… But I think in the last generation, those three were the three best ones, and for me Scholes was best.”

    GREAT SCOTT

    Scott McTominay watched on from the bench as Scotland fell to a 1-0 Nations League defeat in Slovakia on Sunday afternoon.

    The 23-year-old played the full match on Thursday as Steve Clarke's side booked their place at Euro 2020.

    And he is likely to return to the starting XI as part of a back three on Wednesday, when Scotland attempt to secure promotion to Nations League Group A at the second time of asking, when they travel to Israel.

    UP THERE WITH BEST

    Manchester United target Dayot Upamecano has been tipped to succeed at Bayern Munich by his former RB Leipzig coach.

    The French defender, 22, remains one of the most sought-after defenders in European football after his stellar rise with Leipzig.

    Asked whether he would excel at the Allianz Arena, Rangnick told Sport1: “Why not? Bayern know this player well, you can assume that.

    “Physically, Bayern saw that in direct duels no one will run away from him. “He might still have one or two risky balls too many in a game, but he will certainly learn in the next few years.

    “I got to know Upa and his family over many years. They not only make decisions that sound good to them in terms of his image, but they also make decisions based on the feeling of what is best for the player himself.”

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCHOLESY

    Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has turned 46 today.

    The Class of 92 alumnus made 709 appearances for the Red Devils between 1994 and 2013.

    WOULD HE EVER?

    Paul Scholes considered joining Everton when he came out of retirement – before Sir Alex Ferguson sorted him a contract at Manchester United.

    The legendary midfielder, now 46, hung up his boots in 2011 but continued to be involved with coaching the Under-23s at Carrington. Feeling fit enough to play competitively again, Scholes – then 36 – was contacted by former team-mate and Everton skipper Phil Neville to head to Goodison Park.

    But then a chat with Ferguson's assistant Mike Phelan and then the manager – who had failed in attempts to get Scholes to keep on playing six months earlier – secured his romantic return to the United team.

    Scholes told DAZN: “I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and I was training every day. I felt as fit as I’d probably ever had done after having four months off – it was just the break I needed. I said to Joyce that I wanted to play again – I just wanted to play.

    “Where it was I don’t care. I didn’t expect United to want me back. I spoke to Phil Neville and he said, 'Come and play for Everton.' I’ve never really wanted to play for anyone else or be involved with any other club but if that was the only option I had then I might have done it, I don’t know.”

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Marcus Rashford has hit back after a newspaper ran a story concerning how much property he has accumulated. 

    The campaigning footballer, who has been taking a lead role in the fight against childhood poverty, took issue with a Daily Mail article that referenced how many 'luxury homes' he had bought. 

    Meanwhile, Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus a second time and may have to miss United's next game after the international break. 

    The full-back joined up with his international side after testing negative following an initial positive test at the end of last month. 

    Manchester City have reportedly joined their rivals United in the race for Jack Grealish.

    The Aston Villa ace has received high praise in an otherwise damp England defeat at Belgium, and has two of the biggest clubs in the country interested in him. 

    Any move from Pep Guardiola's side will likely happen next summer, it is being reported.

    RED DEVILS WINS

    At least somebody has had a good night…

    ALL OVER

    It's finished Belgium 2-0 England in the Nations League game, and it sends the Three Lions out the competition.

    In truth England were far too limp for too long, while the hosts were clinical and robust in defence.

    Questions are being asked about the line-up and the tactics, but for Gareth Southgate and his troops the goal will be bouncing back against Iceland in a few days time.

  • Kiro Evans

    SANCHO ON

    Long-term United target Jadon Sancho is on for England, and he needs to help the Three Lions fire up a response.

    There have been positive signs in the second half, but it's not enough so far.

    Dominic Calvert-Lewin is also off the bench.

  • Kiro Evans

    MANCHESTER SUPPORT

    The injured absentee duo of United's Marcus Rashford and City's Raheem Sterling are backing the Three Lions tonight against Belgium.

    Unfortunately, England have looked poor so far and trail 2-0.

  • Kiro Evans

    ALL DE QUALITY

    Former United attacker Memphis Depay enjoyed the Netherlands victory against Bosnia tonight.

    He scored once while Liverpool's Gini Wijnaldum got two in a 3-1 victory.

    For all the talk of Jadon Sancho and Ousmane Dembele, you do sometimes wonder if United pulled the trigger too early on another brilliant attacking forward…

  • Kiro Evans

    HENDERSON ON BENCH

    Dean Henderson is on the bench tonight in an England squad that is unusually lacking in Manchester United faces.

    With Marcus Rashford pulling out with injury and Mason Greenwood not included in the squad altogether, substitute Henderson is the sole United face.

    For Belgium, England's opponents and Nations League rival, former Red Devil Romelu Lukaku leads the line.

    HAA HA HA

    Former Barcelona director Javier Bordas has claimed the club rejected the chance to sign Man United target Erling Haaland.

    The Catalans had considered the Norwegian striker as one of their options to provide back-up to Luis Suarez back in 2019.

    Having just completed an impressive stint in Molde, the youngster was heading to RB Salzburg where he later earned an £18million move to Borussia Dortmund.

    Yet SunSport previously revealed that Barca opted against beating the Germans to Haaland in favour of landing Kevin-Prince Boateng on loan.

    The club's former director Bordas has now shed some light on why the LaLiga giants avoided making a move for the now-Dortmund star.

    When asked why Barcelona didn’t go for Haaland, he told Mundo Deportivo: “Because they told me that (he) was not a Barca player.”

    RIP RAY

    The tributes have been pouring in for Ray Clemence from across the footballing world, including former United defender Gary Neville.

    The former England keeper has died today at the age of 72.

  • Kiro Evans

    KEEP GOING

    Marcus Rashford has vowed to continue campaigning after taking issue with a online article that mentioned how much property he owns.

    The popular United forward felt the need to defend himself from the Mail Online piece and was supported by much of the football community.

    He has now said he is going to get back to focusing on his battle against childhood poverty.

    ROO BETTER BELIEVE IT

    Harry Kane will 'absolutely' beat Wayne Rooney's all-time England goal scorer record, according to Tony Cascarino.

    The former Chelsea striker is convinced that United legend Rooney's 53 tally record will eventually go to Kane, despite the Spurs forward still being 21 goals behind.

    He told Talksport: “If he plays enough football I think he will, absolutely.

    “I think his attitude is one of his most outstanding attributes – his effort, his desire.

    “I’ve never, ever felt that Harry Kane has taken anything for granted in football. He’s always worked his socks off.

    “I think it feeds onto other people, I think it inspires and lifts others around him.”

    THAT'S NUTS

    If you haven't yet seen the brutal moment United's Anthony Martial collided with Wolves goalkeeper Rui Patricio yesterday in France's 1-0 win over Portugal, this is your moment.

    Men, look away…
