  • MORNING MAN UTD FANS,

    Tottenham are ready to sell Harry Kane to Manchester United for a world-record fee, according to shock reports.

    The Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to be furious with the striker's recent comments and needs cash to balance the books amid the coronavirus crisis.

    And according to the Mail On Sunday, the North London club are willing to sanction a £200million move, eclipsing the £198m fee Paris Saint-German paid for Neymar in 2017.

    Paul Pogba says he quit Manchester United because he was angry at Sir Alex Ferguson not playing him.

    It was always assumed that Pogba left over a contract dispute.

    Juventus were offering him £30,000 a week which was twice what United had on the table.

    But the club record buy has revealed to ‘The Official Manchester United Podcast’ he believed he deserved to be in the United starting XI and Sir Alex didn’t.

    Pogba, 27, said: “My brother, the United fan, told me he was really angry – even more than me – when I didn’t play. He told me: No, go. You can play in this team. If they don’t want you here, go somewhere else. They will see.’”

    Meanwhile, Man Utd will be ‘great again’ with Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in midfield, says on-loan star Odion Ighalo.

    The Nigeria striker cannot wait to see what the future has in store at Old Trafford once Pogba returns from the ankle injury which has sidelined him for the majority of the season.

    Ighalo believes it can only get better once Pogba – who has been out since December 26 – returns from his ankle injury, to link up with Fernandes for a lethal partnership in the middle.

  • BENT THE RULES

    Manchester United are one of three clubs that Jack Grealish will join according to former Aston Villa striker Darren Bent.

    Speculation has been rife that Villa skipper Grealish will make the move further north to Old Trafford.

    Bent told Football Insider: “I would say probably Manchester United, Manchester City, and potentially maybe Spurs.

    “I think they’re the three that are looking at him, and he’s eyeing them thinking ‘I’d like to go to one of them’.

    “I’d probably put Man United at the very, very top of that'.”

  • 'REALLY ANGRY'

    Paul Pogba says he quit Manchester United because he was angry at Sir Alex Ferguson not playing him.

    It was always assumed that Pogba left over a contract dispute.

    Juventus were offering him £30,000 a week which was twice what United had on the table.

    But the club record buy has revealed to ‘The Official Manchester United Podcast’ he believed he deserved to be in the United starting XI and Sir Alex didn’t.

    Pogba, 27, said: “My brother, the United fan, told me he was really angry – even more than me – when I didn’t play. He told me: No, go. You can play in this team. If they don’t want you here, go somewhere else. They will see.’”

  • KEANE TO MOVE ON

    FORMER Manchester United starlet Will Keane has admitted that Marcus Rashford's instant Old Trafford success “rubbed salt in the wound” as it could have been him, but for his misfortune.

    The Stockport-born striker had been a prodigious talent on the fringes of the United first-team.

    But an injury would signal the end of his time at Old Trafford, leaving him wondering what might have been.

    And looking on at Rashford's success, Keane has admitted: “Marcus Rashford had scored another two and it was like ‘oh my, no.'

    “There was no bitterness towards him but it rubbed salt in the wound a little bit because it could have been me.”

  • WAN OF A KIND

    Odion Ighalo has hailed his Manchester United team-mate Aaron Wan-Bissaka as one of the world's best right-backs… because of his “rubber waist”.

    The Nigerian had played alongside his new Red Devils team-mates for barely six weeks before the coronavirus pandemic brought world football to a standstill.

    But that appears to have been more than enough time for one of them in particular to leave an impression on him.

    Wan-Bissaka, 22, cemented himself as one of the league's hottest young players when he broke into Crystal Palace's first-team in 2018.

    A £50million move to Manchester United came the following summer – and Ighalo can see why.

    He told Juliet Bawuah: “The guy is one of the best right-backs.

    “His waist is like rubber, the way he bends and steals the ball.

    “I think this guy is going to get injured and then next second he’s going again. He’s very difficult to get past.

    “He’s a very, very good player. His work-rate is amazing.”
