    LINGARD KO?

    The Mail and The Athletic are reporting on Jesse Lingard missing out on a place in the Euro 2020 squad.

    A loan spell at West Ham saw the midfielder pick up some great form and a recall to the squad in the spring.

    But it may not have been enough as Gareth Southgate picks the final 26-man squad.

    GREENWOOD OUT

    Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from England's Euro 2020 squad.

    An 'underlying' injury will keep the striker at home this summer.

    A Manchester United statement reads: "Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the provisional England Euro 2021 squad in order to recover fully from an underlying injury that also kept him out of the U21 Euros in March.

    "A further spell of tournament football would not be beneficial and Mason will remain at Manchester United to recuperate and prepare for pre-season training."

    WOOD YOU KINDLY?

    Former Manchester United starlet Keith Gillespie has stated his lack of surprise at Ed Woodward being let go by the club following a number of failed transfers.

    He told Football Fancast: “There were a lot of players touted as coming to United that didn’t materialise.

    “It’s no surprise whatsoever to me. In terms of what the United fans want, they didn’t want him in, they don’t want the Glazers there.”

    SAUL’D OVER

    Saul Niguez is reportedly open to joining Manchester United.

    A release clause of around £60million could be lowered to nearer £40m after negotiations with Atletico Madrid, according to Daily Mirror.

    The midfielder has long been linked with rivals Manchester City.

    HE’S THE JUAN

    Everton would be an ideal destination for Juan Mata, reckons Paddy Kenny.

    The ex-goalkeeper has told Football Insider that the Manchester United midfielder can still perform at a good level if he leaves Old Trafford when his contract expires later this month.

    Kenny said: “I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to go to Everton.

    “He’s still a good player and if it’s a chance for him to go there and play week in, week out then Everton should go for it.

    “I’m sure he could be a massive boost to that club if they could sign someone of his calibre.”

    CAL ME, MAYBE

    AC Milan are reportedly ready to let Hakan Calhanoglu leave for free if one more round of contract talks fail.

    The Turkish playmaker's deal is up at the end of the month with Manchester United and Juventus hovering.

    According to TuttoMercatoWeb, negotiations have struggled and a fresh set of talks will be their last shot before heading in seperate directions.

    POWER STRUGGLE

    Fred, Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani could be set for a quiet summer.

    That is because Brazil has heaped more uncertainty on this year’s Copa America after distancing itself from confirmation by South American football chiefs it was stepping in to rescue the tournament.

    Argentina pulled out of plans to stage the competition over the weekend because of its Covid crisis, 10 days after initial co-host Colombia ruled itself out due to political protests.

    Conmebol announced late on Sunday the tournament would take place in Brazil, thanking the country’s president Jair Bolsonaro and his government for stepping in at such short notice.

    But overnight Bolsonaro’s Chief of Staff Luiz Eduardo Ramos insisted nothing had been decided following a wave of criticism at the idea one of the worst-hit Covid countries in the world would stage the Copa America.

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    Donny van de Beek will reportedly hold talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer about his role at Manchester United.

    The Dutch midfielder made just FOUR starts this season following a £40million move from Ajax last summer.

    And the Telegraph claims Van de Beek is eager to discover if he forms part of the plans for next term.

    The playmaker also hopes a good showing with the Netherlands at Euro 2020 will help him finally earn a spot in United’s team.

    Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly likely to leave Juventus this summer.

    Corriere dello Sport claims the Portuguese legend is ready to quit Turin following the return of Max Allegri.

    Manchester United and PSG are both said to be interested.

    But Juve’s asking price, and his mammoth wage demands, could prevent either from making a bid.

    Finally, Diogo Dalot admits he is unsure if he still has a Man Utd future after spending the season on loan at AC Milan.

    He told Gazzetta: “I say that I had a fantastic year and met beautiful people.

    “It was a real pleasure to play for Milan but now I think about the Euros and I really don’t know (on his future) what will happen.”

    BETTER CALL SAUL

    Man United have been handed a major boost in the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, according to reports.

    The Spaniard will push for a move to the Red Devils with Atletico willing to cash in for £40million, say the Mirror.

    PSG and Juventus are also keen on Saul, who helped Atleti win LaLiga.

    But the player himself apparently favours an Old Trafford switch.

    DEVIL DELIGHT

    Man Utd’s Europa League final defeat to Villarreal could see them be handed a favourable Champions League group next season.

    United have missed out on Pot 1, containing the likes of Lille and Sporting Lisbon.

    They will instead be in Pot 2 alongside Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG.

    THAT’S DA-LOT

    Diogo Dalot admits he is unsure if he still has a Man Utd future after spending the season on loan at AC Milan.

    He told Gazzetta: “I say that I had a fantastic year and met beautiful people.

    "It was a real pleasure to play for Milan but now I think about the Euros and I really don't know (on his future) what will happen."

    HANNIBAL SELECTOR

    Tunisia gave Manchester United starlet Hannibal Mejbri a spectacular glitzy unveiling after he switched allegiance from France.

    Tunisia have called up Mejbri for clashes with DR Congo, Algeria and Mali after he played for France Under-16s and U-17s.

    Dignitaries and journalists were in a crowd at an auditorium as Mejbri was given a musical countdown.

    And after the tension built up, Mejbri finally stepped onto a stage, surrounded by strobe lighting and bursts of flames.

    REUNITED

    Ex-Italy star Christian Vieiri claims Jose Mourinho wants to sign Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo for new club Roma.

    He told Bobo TV: "Mourinho wants to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Roma."

    However, his claim quickly received backlash from another former Italy international, Antonio Cassano, who replied: "Ronaldo to Roma? That's nonsense.

    "Mourinho didn't get on well with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. How can you think he's going to go to Roma?

    "I don't know if it's because they have the same agent, Jorge Mendes, or a Portuguese sporting director, but how can you think Cristiano's going to Roma?"

    VAN DE BLEAK

    CULTIVATING MASS

    Man Utd target Erling Haaland says he has become a 'real man' after piling on the muscle.

    He told AS: "If you look at my body, if you look at my legs, you will see that I have changed a lot.

    "I am completely different. I have become a real man. Besides everything, I have become faster.

    "That is one of the most important things. I have gone from 86 kilos to 94 (1.25 stone).

    “But it is not a beer belly, it is about gross muscle mass. I take great care of what I eat."

    SUTT-LE HINT

    Chris Sutton has tipped Southampton star Danny Ings to join Manchester United this summer.

    However, the striker could instead go to rivals Man City if they miss out on Spurs ace Harry Kane.

    Sutton told BBC Radio 5Live: “There’s talk about Danny Ings leaving.

    “He could end up at Manchester City or Manchester United.

    “There are all sorts of rumours flooding around the Norfolk area, but that’s what I have heard.

    “And how could they [Southampton] possibly replace him?”

    EUR IN TROUBLE

    UEFA are planning to make a ‘robust’ defence after the European Super League attempted to wage war on them.

    Remaining members Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus claim Uefa have violated European Union competition law by seeking to block the ESL, and are now suing.

    But a Uefa statement read: “Uefa takes note of the announcement by the European Court of Justice of the referral from a Madrid court on the so-called European Super League, notwithstanding the withdrawal of nine of its founding member clubs.

    “Uefa is confident in its position and will defend it robustly.”

    PAUL THE OTHER ONE

    Man United have been dealt a transfer blow with long-term target Paulo Dybala set for a new Juventus contract.

    Goal claims the Red Devils have been tracking the Argentina playmaker for some time.

    Dybala lost his place in Juve's side under Andrea Pirlo, despite being regarded as one of the best in his position.

    But returning boss Max Allegri is a huge fan and wants to make Dybala a key figure in his team.

    Talks are now set to begin on a long-term deal, with Dybala eager to stay in Turin.

    RON HIS WAY

    Manchester United and PSG are both said to be interested.

    RAM RACE

    Manchester City want to sign Man United target Sergio Ramos, according to reports.

    And Pep Guardiola's side are willing to offer the Spaniard a two-year deal.

    The defender's contract is set to expire on June 30, and he is set to meet with Madrid chiefs once again in the next few days to try and trash out an agreement.

    But City could steal a march on the LaLiga giants, according to ESPN.

    They claim that City could offer Ramos a two-year deal with an option for a third that, depending on performances, could mean a move to New York City FC.

    THAT'S SAUL SHE WROTE

    Manchester United target Saul Niguez is 'determined' to leave Atletico Madrid this summer, according to reports.

    But Juventus currently lead the race for the Spaniard's signature, AS claim.

    The report claims that Saul wants to take 'another direction in his career'.

    Atletico ace Saul, 26, is expected to demand around £115,000-a-week.

    JAN DEMAND

    Rumoured Manchester United target Jan Oblak has refused to be drawn on his future, amid Atletico exit talks.

    The Slovenian, 28, told Marca: "I can't see the future, neither myself nor the club nor anyone can.

    "It will depend on a lot of factors, such as if the club needs to sell any players or not.

    "I have nothing to say about my future, I have been at Atleti seven years and I have two years left on my contract.

    "I have played more than 300 games here and, while I enjoy having won La Liga Santander, I'm not thinking about anything else.

    "I'm here, I'm happy. We'll see what the future brings."
