    United 'told to sign Dybala'

    Man United have been urged to sign Paulo Dybala if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves the club.

    That's according to football pundit Darren Ambrose who reckons Dybala is a suitable replacement for the disgruntled Portuguese ace.

    Ambrose told talkSPORT: "I think they should [sign Dybala] if Ronaldo stays. I don't feel he's a suitable replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

    "He's a fantastic player but he hasn't got the numbers that Ronaldo gets, he doesn't score as many goals. Whether he can do that in a Manchester United side remains to be seen."

    Good morning Man Utd fans

    Christian Eriksen has agreed to join Manchester United on a free transfer this summer.

    Eriksen is set to sign a three-year deal at Old Trafford providing he comes through his upcoming medical.

    United have beaten Brentford to the attacking midfielder’s signature after he spent the last six months with the Bees.

    The Denmark international is set to become the Red Devils' first transfer of the summer.

    Meanwhile, United star Cristian Ronaldo has delayed his return to training due to family reasons.

    Ronaldo has sensationally told the Manchester giants he wants to leave in order to play Champions League football.

    The five-time Ballon d'Or winner was set to hold showdown talks with Erik ten Hag yesterday in what was scheduled to be his first day back at the club after a summer break.

    But SunSport understands the forward will did not attend practice due to family reasons, and the Red Devils have accepted his explanation.

    The Portugal international is due to spend a few days at United's HQ before jetting off on a 16-day tour of Thailand and Australia on Friday with the rest of the squad.

    And Chelsea are still weighing up a move for Ronaldo this summer.

    The Blues are believed to be at the front of the queue to sign the ex-Juventus star and are now considering an offer, according to The Athletic.

    New owner Todd Boehly first made contact with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s agent Jorge Mendes last month but talks have carried on since.

    And according to the Independent, the striker is willing to accept a sizeable wage cut to push for a move as he is desperate to continue playing Champions League football.

    Finally, Tyrell Malacia has been spotted at United's training ground in Carrington.

    Malacia has been photographed arriving in a car ahead of his proposed move to Old Trafford.

    The left-back is set to become new manager Ten Hag's first signing for £13million from Feyenoord.

    The Netherlands international will provide competition for Luke Shaw down the left flank

    Wrexham make cheeky Ronaldo offer

    Ronaldo has sensationally confirmed he wants to leave after just one year back at Old Trafford.

    Reacting to a social media post about the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wanting to leave United if a suitable offer was lodged, McElhenney jokingly wrote: "Define suitable."

    Rangnick wanted to sell Ronaldo

    Former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick reportedly told the club that they had to sell Cristiano Ronaldo back in January.

    The Athletic state: "On more than one occasion Rangnick proposed to football director John Murtough and chief executive officer Richard Arnold that Ronaldo be sold, and replaced, during the January transfer window. 

    “Rangnick felt that as Ronaldo’s time at United was uncertain beyond the end of the season, it made sense to act sooner rather than later to reconfigure the side’s attack."

    Ronaldo has now informed the club of his wish to leave in the summer

    Five for Ten

    Manchester United are planning to complete five signings before the end of their pre-season tour.

    One of them is Christian Eriksen, who is on the verge to join them as a free agent.

    Ten Hag is keen to upgrade his midfield and United appear to finally be closing in on Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong after having a bid accepted.

    The Dutchman is also keen on another of his former players, Lisandro Martinez, but Ajax are refusing to budge from their considerable asking price amid interest from Arsenal.

    The Dutch champions are also demanding an eye-watering £70m fee for Antony with Ten Hag keen on his former player.

    United are also in the market for a back-up goalkeeper following Dean Henderson's loan move to Nottingham Forest

    On the Ronway

    Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has put his £20million private jet up for sale as it's too small.

    Ronaldo bought the plane for the reported eight-figure fortune in 2015.

    The star forward's Gulfstream G200 has served him well with the striker often jetting off on holiday around Europe with partner Georgina Rodriguez and kids.

    The Portugal captain also uses the aircraft to fly back and forth to Portugal regularly thanks to its top speed of 560mph.

    And although the plane can seat between eight to 10 people, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is looking for a bigger model.

    There could be a number of willing buyers too, with the 37-year-old often renting out the jet for a rate ranging from £5000-£8500 an hour.

    More on Lisandro Martinez

    Manchester United are in advanced negotiations to snatch Ajax star and Arsenal transfer target Lisandro Martinez.

    And Martinez would rather reunite with former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford than join the Gunners.

    According to The Athletic, United have “edged ahead as favourites” to sign the 24-year-old with a fee in the region of £35million.

    The Gunners put in three offers – most recently for £34m.

    But the Amsterdam giants want more for their centre-back and they are hardly under pressure to sell as his deal runs until June 2025

    No Morr Rav

    Former Manchester United ace Ravel Morrison has been released by Derby after failing to agree terms for a new deal.

    Morrison joined the Rams on a free transfer last summer following a year-long spell with Den Haag.

    The attacking midfielder scored five goals in 38 appearances during his time at Pride Park Stadium, but he is now set to move on once again.

    The 29-year-old took to Instagram to say thank you to the club with a touching statement.

    Morrison posted: "Thank you Derby County, all the players, staff and fans for making me feel at home.

    "Was a season full of ups and downs, but was a real honour to be part of such a wonderful club. "I wish everyone at the club success moving forward"

    'Not world class'

    Manchester United fans should be underwhelmed by the signing of Christian Eriksen, according to Liverpool hero Danny Murphy.

    Murphy told talkSPORT: "World class? Eriksen? No. No, no, no, no. He is a welcome addition to any squad because he is experienced and has quality.

    "But when you're looking at the big games when United are competing against Liverpool, [Manchester] City and Chelsea, is he going to play in that first XI? No, is the answer.

    "He could change a game, yes, that's fair. He could come off the bench and change a game but is he going to bring United closer to Liverpool and City? Nowhere near it.

    "This is Man Utd. Is he better than [Bruno] Fernandes? No. Is he going to be playing in the first XI? No.

    "Is he a welcome addition and good squad player? Yes. Should I be happy as a United fan? No. Would I be excited as a United fan? I'd be a bit underwhelmed by it"
