MANCHESTER UNITED are eagerly preparing for the return of club football once the coronavirus outbreak begins to subside.
On the transfer front, a move for Jadon Sancho remains firmly on the agenda while there could be exciting news regarding Jack Grealish.
Get all the latest news and gossip from Old Trafford here…
Manchester United are “finalising” Jack Grealish's transfer to the club, according to one reporter.
Eurosport's Manu Lonjon broke the news on his Twitter account today.
Grealish caused controversy two weeks ago by breaking coronavirus lockdown to party at a friend's house before crashing his Range Rover at 4am.
But that appears not to have deterred Man Utd, who are said to remain determined to get their man.
PREM CLUBS PUSH FOR JUNE 30 FINISH
A growing number of Premier League clubs will tomorrow push for the season to be finished by June 30.
Chiefs from the 20 sides will hold a video conference for the latest coronavirus crisis talks — including the first official discussions of a definitive end-date being put in place.
Some clubs fear a delayed campaign into July could lead to legal mayhem over player contracts, with the only alternative being to declare the season null and void.
One insider said: “Clubs are starting to take the view that if we go beyond June 30 – when player contracts end – we will be in chaos territory.
“Fifa say clubs and players have the ability to extend contracts but there is nothing hard and fast legally to make that happen.
“Everybody wants to see the season played out, of course we do.But how do you demand that players who are actually out of contract, who might be considering moves to teams they are going to be playing against, give everything?
“You can’t. If the games aren’t finished by the end of June the sporting integrity of the competition could go out of the window.”
AARON'S HANDS-ON HELP
Aaron Wan-Bissaka spent his weekend packing 20,000 clinical PPE gloves that he himself paid for into boxes.
It is just part of the Manchester United star’s personal fight against coronavirus.
The £10,000 personal protective equipment has been shipped to doctors in his father’s homeland of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
It is the latest goodwill gesture from United’s £50million buy, who has also helped raise funds for the NHS.
Wan-Bissaka, 22, who prior to the Covid-19 outbreak bought his hard-working parents a new house, said: “I’m fortunate.
“There are those who aren’t able to protect themselves as well or have access to certain things during this crisis. It’s been great to give back. I know it’s not easy out there for them so it’s only right for me to help.”
The idea to send the gloves back to Kinshasa came from a doctor pal of Aaron’s dad, Ambrose, who fled the war-torn country in 1997. Ambrose asked his son if he would help and not only did the ex-Crystal Palace ace stump up the cash, he then helped box up the equipment.
TAH VERY MUCH CHEAPER
Bayer Leverkusen's giant Germany defender Jonathan Tah is being talked up as a cheaper alternative for Arsenal to Manchester United target Dayot Upamecano.
France Under-21 star Upamecano reportedly remains Gunners boss Mikel Arteta's top target but RB Leipzig are holding firm to his £50million-plus release clause.
Tah, 24, who has nine caps, seems an easier option but still tricky.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old Upamecano has crept onto the radar of Manchester city as well as United.
Colombia midfielder Nicolas Benedetti has told his Instagram followers he dreams of joining Manchester United.
The 22-year-old, capped once two years ago, is shining for top-flight Mexican sideAmerica after leaving home country team Deportivo Calie in January 2019.
And he used social media to pledge he will battle hard to land a big move to Europe.
Gol Caracol revealed he posted: “I have many clubs that I have always dreamed of, like Manchester United when I was little.
“Now I have dreamed of playing for Barcelona. That is work and sacrifice, but you have to dream big.”
