  • GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS,

    The Red Devils have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Sergio Reguilon with Real Madrid reportedly demanding a buy-back clause.

    El Partidazo de COPE claims United are interested in striking a £27million deal for the left-back, 23.

    But Real have apparently made it clear they want an option to bring Reguilon back to the Bernabeu for the same price.

    And that demand looks set to end United’s move for the Spain international.

    Elsewhere, Man Utd target Samuel Umtiti could leave Barcelona for FREE, according to reports.

    Mundo Deportivo reports the French defender could see his contract, which runs until 2023, RIPPED UP as Barcelona consider letting him leave for nothing.

    Umtiti, 26, has slipped behind countryman Clement Lenglet in the Catalan giants' pecking order.

    Lastly, Man Utd youngster Dylan Levitt has signed for Charlton on a season-long loan.

    United legend Ryan Giggs gave Levitt his full Wales debut last week and the midfielder's impressive performance has caught the eye of the Addicks.

    The teenager played the full 90 minutes in his country's 1-0 win in Finland.

    And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also has faith in the holding midfielder having given him his first team bow against Astana in the Europa League last year.

  • GATE CLOSED

    Gareth Southgate insisted Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden would have been kicked out of the England squad regardless of their Covid-19 breaches.

    He said: “I've spoken to both of them as I said yesterday they know what happened is unacceptable on both a Covid basis and, as I've learned more details, on any basis.

    “Either way they would have gone home.

    “The consequence has been there and they now need support.

    “Everyone is wading in on them. They need help to rebuild.

    “They understand the expectations of being an England player.

    “We must help young people back on their feet.”

  • TIP OF THE ICE BERKS

    Exclusive by Richard Moriarty: England stars Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood had an inside man help them hook up with two Icelandic girls.

    They paid a hotel worker so they could smuggle in the women despite strict coronavirus rules banning visitors.

    Model Nadia Sif Lindal Gunnarsdottir, 20, and her cousin Lara Clausen, 19, later posted footage, including an image of Foden’s bum, from their rendezvous in Reykjavik.

    It also emerged that England’s game against Denmark last night would have been in jeopardy had a physio not collared the players before breakfast.

    A source said: “They were very keen to meet the women and needed help from an employee, who received a very generous tip.

    “There cannot be any doubt they knew what they did was wrong. All the rules had been drummed into them.

    “There was less security than usual travelling as no fans were allowed in the stadium and the players took advantage of that.”

  • CLASS MARC

    Marcus Rashford has been awarded the PFA Merit Award in recognition for his work tackling child poverty in the UK.

    After receiving the award, Rashford said: “It's a huge honour and I hope it encourages and promotes other players to do things to help.

    “It's been a long journey but I think the first phase was probably the hardest part, which was learning and self-teaching, who were the right people to get in contact with to help these children.

    “We had the idea but we didn't know how to pitch them or who to pitch them to. That was probably the most difficult phase.

    “What we've done so far is only the short term, me and my team are trying to find plans on how we can help these children for the rest of their childhood.

    “Long-term, we want to find answers to the problem. At the moment, we don't have those answers but we will do our best to try and find them.”

  • FORTUNE SEEKER

    Quinton Fortune has left his role as assistant coach of Manchester United under-23s to join the backroom team at Reading.

    The former Red Devils midfielder joined the club's setup in July 2019 and helped Neil Wood's side to promotion to Premier League 2 Division One.

    Fortune will now link up with new Reading manager Veljko Paunovic ahead of his first season in the Championship.

    The South African joined United in 1999, going on to make 126 appearances in seven seasons at Old Trafford.

    He left the club for Bolton Wanderers in 2006 but returned in 2012 to work on his coaching badges.

  • UNITED AGAINST

    Neville continued: “I get it, it’s not ideal. They’ve made a mistake and they will pay for it.

    “But they are two talented individuals, they live on the edge, they live off adrenalin and a buzz, they are fast, their lives are fast and ultimately we can look at it in a number of ways.

    “We can try slate them, slag them off and say it’s not good enough, all those things they know are true.

    “But there has also got to be a level of tolerance around what they are.

    “Yes, they are representing their country, and they will feel really bad and be gutted even more so in about 45 minutes when their team-mates are running out on the pitch and they can’t be there with them.

    “And they will feel like the whole world is coming down around them – but it’s not.”

  • SEEING RED

    Gary Neville has defended axed England stars Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden.

    The Manchester United and City aces were sent home by Gareth Southgate’s squad yesterday after they snuck an Icelandic model and her cousin into the team hotel at the weekend.

    He said: “They’ll feel pretty awful. We’ve seen their apologies, and obviously being removed from the squad is something you don’t want at any part of your career.

    “You’ve always got to go back into your player mood when you go back in that dressing-room.

    “Mistakes you’ve made yourself, mistakes you’ve seen your team-mates make, and they need love right now.

    “They are young lads, they are not robots. Anybody at home who has been 18, 19, 20 will either themselves or seen a friend of theirs do something like that at some point in their life… breach the discipline, let themselves down, have a fight.”

  • SPECIAL BRU

    Kevin De Bruyne has become the first Manchester City player ever to win the PFA Player of the Year award.

    The £54million Belgium international enjoyed an outstanding season – even though his team came up short in the Premier League and Europe.

    He said: “It’s a huge honour. To be voted as best player by your colleagues and competitors from other teams who you play against is amazing.

    “It’s strange that I’m the first one at City given all the good players that have played here before and who are still playing here – but it’s nice to represent the club.”

  • TOP MARCS

    Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has won the PFA Merit Award.

  • SKY SHAKE UP

    SunSport's Martin Lipton has revealed that Micah Richards and Alex Scott are not expected to be part of the new revolving Soccer Saturday panel on Sky this season.

    Sky’s decision to axe long-time studio guests Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier and Phil Thompson brought suggestions that Richards and Scott would be parachuted in.

    But the pair have been lined up for match punditry duties rather than sitting in front of TV screens on a Saturday afternoon.

    Sky chiefs have decided not to have a permanent panel alongside host Jeff Stelling, with the likes of Matt Murray and Clinton Morrison likely to appear as well as retained veteran Paul Merson.

  • NO COST

    Manchester United transfer target Douglas Costa has been linked to a shock transfer swap with Atletico Madrid's Alvaro Morata.

    Juventus and Atletico have started negotiations over Douglas Costa, with the possibility of Morata being added to the deal.

    It has been reported that his wife would like to return to Turin, where the couple have made many friends.

    According to CNN reporter Tancredi Palmeri, the deal is not necessarily linked to the Spaniard, and a loan move with the option to buy later is also on the table.

  • SUB SNUB

    The Premier League is set to be left as the only major competition in Europe not to allow five substitutes.

    Clubs in Spain’s LaLiga are poised to U-turn and revert to bigger benches with up to five changes.

    They will join France and Germany in allowing five substitutes, with Italy’s Serie A now expected to follow suit.

    That will leave the Prem as the stand-out exception among the Big Five, after clubs voted 11-9 last week in the second vote on the issue.

    The vote was a rejection of the arguments of the Big Six Prem teams, who were angry and frustrated that their arguments carried no weight with their rivals.

    But all Prem clubs playing in the Champions League and Europa League are now set to have the option of extra substitutes in continental competition after the European Club Association agreed to lobby Uefa and urge a change of policy later this month.

  • ARMCHAIR JACKPOT

    All this month’s Premier League matches will be broadcast live on TV after a U-turn by the 20 clubs.

    As SunSport revealed yesterday, a hastily-arranged virtual meeting of the 20 “shareholder” clubs saw them fold in the face of demands from fans and the Government.

    The League had agreed to increase the number of matches screened live on TV this season from 200 to 220.

    But that left 160 matches without live showing, including 11 of the games due to be played behind closed doors this month.

    Now, following the furore, the clubs have agreed to change their stance with all 11 matches now shared between the Prem’s four broadcasters, Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and the BBC.

    Amazon and the Beeb will show one match each on September 26.

  • JUAN WISH

    Juan Mata has wished Bruno Fernandes a happy birthday by sharing a hilarious photo of his Manchester United teammate as a child.

    The Portuguese midfielder turned 26 today but the image posted by Mata is a serious throwback.

  • UNREAL DEAL

    Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Sergio Reguilon with Real Madrid reportedly demanding a buy-back clause.

    El Partidazo de COPE claims United are interested in striking a £27million deal for the left-back, 23.

    But Real have apparently made it clear they want an option to bring Reguilon back to the Bernabeu for the same price.

    And that demand looks set to end United’s move for the Spain international.

  • OH DONNY BOY

    Man Utd's new signing Donny van de Beek was given a hero's send off by raucous Ajax fans armed with flares.

    The Dutchman was mobbed by supporters who surrounded him and bellowed his name on the streets of Amsterdam.

    The Red Devils signed the 23-year-old for £39million last week.

    And United legend – and now Ajax CEO – Edwin van der Sar bid a fond farewell to the midfielder in a personal letter to United fans.

    Van de Beek is held in high regard in Holland.

    And Ajax supporters clearly feel the same as hundreds of them gathered to wish him well before he moves to England.

    Footage shows Van de Beek stood outside his car as fans sang his name and held red flares aloft.

  • FAMILY AFFAIR

    Harry Maguire has been pictured with sister Daisy and brother Laurence for the first time together since their Mykonos arrest.

    The Manchester United captain and Daisy were involved in the traumatic events in Greece that led to Maguire's conviction.

    The trio were snapped inside Old Trafford as they watched Sunday's Soccer Aid charity match.

    An England XI of celebs and footy players lost 4-3 on penalties to a World XI, with musician Chunkz missing the decisive penalty.

    It would have been a welcome distraction for the family after Maguire was found guilty of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and repeated attempts of bribery last month.

    Maguire instantly appealed the 21-month suspended sentence and faces a retrial in a more senior court at a later date.

    Daisy, 20, was with Maguire on that fateful night which was apparently sparked when two men approached her.

  • IRN BRU

  • EU GOTTA BE KIDDING

    European football faces a cash 'crisis' which will last for two years.

    Clubs face being hit by a triple whammy of no gate income, reduced TV money and sponsors demanding lower value deals.

    And Europe's biggest sides including Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City will also be hit by a £530million cut in Uefa prize money for the Champions League and Europa League.

    The gloomy forecast was given by Juventus president Andrea Agnelli.

    Speaking at the opening of the virtual general assembly of the European Club Association, Agnelli said: “None of us could have imagined what we have had to live with over recent months.

    “Now we are looking at a top revenue decrease of approximately £3.6billion in the next two years. According to Fifa, 90 per cent of those top line losses will be borne by clubs.”

  • SAM'S TOWN

    Man Utd target Samuel Umtiti could leave Barcelona for FREE, according to reports.

    Mundo Deportivo reports the French defender could see his contract, which runs until 2023, RIPPED UP as Barcelona consider letting him leave for nothing.

    Umtiti, 26, has slipped behind countryman Clement Lenglet in the Catalan giants' pecking order.

    Persistent injuries have hampered his progress at the Nou Camp.

    The centre-back managed just 13 LaLiga appearances last season as Barca surrendered the league title to El Clasico rivals Real Madrid.

  • I'M LEVING

    Man Utd youngster Dylan Levitt has signed for Charlton on a season-long loan.

    United legend Ryan Giggs gave Levitt his full Wales debut last week and the midfielder's impressive performance has caught the eye of the Addicks.

    The teenager played the full 90 minutes in his country's 1-0 win in Finland.

    And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also has faith in the holding midfielder having given him his first team bow against Astana in the Europa League last year.

    Charlton boss Lee Bowyer wanted to add energy to his midfield and has managed to secure a deal.

    The Addicks had promising West Ham star Josh Cullen on loan last season in midfield but the 24-year-old has returned to the London Stadium.

  • UNITED FIXTURES

    Here are the Red Devils' opening Premier League fixtures.

    Remember, they get a week longer off than everyone else (apart from Manchester City) after getting to the latter stages of the Europa League.

  • ALL GONE SOUTH

    Mason Greenwood has offered a grovelling apology after his Covid-19 regulation shame and admitted he let Gareth Southgate down.

    He said: “Having now had the chance to reflect on what’s happened, I can only apologise to everyone for the embarrassment I have caused.

    “It was irresponsible of me to break the COVID-19 protocols which are in place to protect players, staff and the public.

    “In particular, I want to apologise to Gareth Southgate, for letting him down, when he had shown great trust in me.

    “Playing for England was one of the proudest moments in my life and I only have myself to blame for this huge mistake.

    “I promise my family, the fans, Manchester United and England that this is a lesson I will learn from.”

  • NOW OR NEV-ER

    Man Utd should have acted quicker to land £109million star Jadon Sancho, according to Gary Neville.

    He told the Mail: “Like everyone else they had three months off because of coronavirus, so I don't think it should be the case they didn't have the resource or time to get things done.

    “Chelsea got their business done, [Manchester] City have got three or four pieces done. I don't think timing's the issue.

    “It's just a thing with United that every time they go for a player in the last four, five, six years it feels they are a little bit desperate.

    “They think they can hang on but they always pay it [the asking price] in the end.

    “That's sometimes where I think you can take control, give a hard deadline and say 'we're moving away from this deal'.”

  • BUBBLE TROUBLE

    Axed England stars Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood will miss FOUR upcoming internationals after being sent home in disgrace.

    The Manchester City and Man Utd stars arrived back in the UK last night after being dumped from Gareth Southgate's squad for Tuesday's clash with Denmark.

    Foden, 20, also issued a grovelling apology for the ‘unacceptable’ breach of Covid-19 rules when the duo met two girls in the team’s hotel in Iceland on Sunday night.

    The ‘naive’ pair, who made their Three Lions debuts in the 1-0 win in Reykjavik 24 hours earlier, were fined £1,360 each by local police.  

    The FA also launched an investigation and apologised to Iceland chiefs.

    The pair will miss tonight’s Nations League clash in Copenhagen and the Covidiots are also set to be kicked out of the England squad for three games next month.

    Foden and Greenwood, 18, were sent back to their clubs with both sides fuming with the conduct of their stars.
