    'Ramos could cost £103m'

    United might have to pay Goncalo Ramos' £103million release clause to sign the "new Cristiano Ronaldo" this summer.

    The Red Devils and PSG are reportedly monitoring Benfica's Portugal striker, 21.

    Ramos has a string of major admirers across Europe after his breakthrough World Cup.

    He is under contract until 2026 with an exit clause of 120m euros – about £103m.

    But Bola say it's almost certain he'll move on at the end of this season and could depart for a lower fee if he pushes to go.

    Mas appeal for Red Devils

    United are considering a move for Chelsea's Mason Mount this summer as an alternative to Jude Bellingham.

    The Red Devils have weighed up a move for Borussia Dortmund star Bellingham, 19, but with Real Madrid and Liverpool considered to be ahead of them in the race, Erik ten Hag is looking to other targets.

    And England midfielder Mount is increasingly being viewed as an ideal fit for the Dutchman's plans going forward.

    The 24-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge is up in the air amid a stand-off over a new contract.

    Mount's current deal expires next summer while talks over fresh terms have stalled over the Blues' desire to tie their stars down to long-term deals.

    Fellow academy graduate Reece James signed a six-year deal in west London last year, meaning there is an expectation on Mount to follow suit.

    'Maguire is shock £50m PSG target'

    Harry Maguire is a shock £50million summer target for misfiring French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

    SunSport can reveal that a deal ‘was on the table’ for Manchester United’s skipper in the January transfer window but time ran out before it could be finalised.

    But that has only mothballed a move that will offer the England centre-half to end his frustrating four year spell at Old Trafford.

    PSG will have to match Maguire’s £200,000 a week wages but with the club backed by billions of Qatari petro-dollars that is not seen as a problem.

    Maguire, 30, still has just over two years left on his contract too but is now way down the pecking order and pondering his future.

    He has started only one of the last eight Premier League games even though he remains as club captain.

    Maguire played only two minutes of last month’s Carabao Cup Final victory over Newcastle at Wembley but still lifted the trophy jointly alongside Bruno Fernandes.

    England boss Gareth Southgate has so far stayed loyal to Maguire and he is expected to start in the Euro 2024 qualifier on March 23 – despite his lack of appearances at club level.

    United eye £115m Camavinga bid'

    Manchester United are reportedly willing to smash their club record to sign Eduardo Camavinga. 

    Camavinga, 20, joined Real Madrid in 2021 from Rennes for £26million as a long-term replacement for Casemiro.

    Following the Brazilian’s departure, Camavinga has enjoyed a more prominent role in the team and Madrid now want a reported £115m for him. 

    And according to Fichajes, it is a fee United are willing to pay. Erik ten Hag is keen to reinforce his squad’s midfield and Camavinga fits bill.

    However, the report also states that Los Blancos have no interest in selling the six-cap France international.

    Under Fire

    It's a big night at Old Trafford for Bruno Fernandes.

    The Portuguese international attracted ire from his own fans for some of his behaviour at Anfield on Sunday.

    The midfielder has long been a fan favourite but went too far according to some supporters in the 7-0 defeat. Can he bounce back tonight?

    The Reaction

    Erik ten Hag said his players have done some deep thinking following Sunday's Anfield humiliation.

    He said: "I think the players, they reflected well. We know, but we also know when you go in the season, the setbacks will always be there. And this was a huge setback, clear.

    "But when you are – we had a run of, I think, 23 games with one loss, and that was the second, but, of course, the way there were a lot of lessons in it that can help us for the future."

    Kamada Fight

    Manchester United and Chelsea are still battling for Frankfurt attacker Daichi Kamada amid reports Dortmund have got the deal done.

    The 26-year-old's contract expires this summer and clubs around Europe are trying to get him on a free deal.

    United are believed to have made contact with the club back in January.

    Reports claim that the Red Devils and Chelsea are desperately trying to convince Kamada to head to the Premier League instead of Germany.

    Redemption Day

    Marcus Rashford is looking forward to tonight's game so United can "redeem" themselves after the Liverpool loss.

    The in-form forward told the United club website: "Like I said to you, your next opportunity to almost redeem yourself as an individual and as a team is the next game.

    "For me, whenever we do lose a game, you just want to be back out on the pitch as quickly as possible.

    "We have to be grateful that we get the opportunity to redeem ourselves and we have to try to take that with both hands."

    The Spanish Inquisition

    Tonight marks Man United's 50th competitive game against Spanish opposition – and incredibly their 15th this decade.

    This is their record over their previous 14 games since 2013.

    Pell's Swell

    Former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has said he was "not sad" to see Man United get battered at Anfield.

    The Chilean brings his Real Betis side to Old Trafford tonight days after the stunning 7-0 scoreline.

    And Pellegrini said: "It really was unbelievable. I only watched the first 45 minutes because after that we had to play Real Madrid and didn't see the other six goals.

    "I knew it would not be easy for them. But also as a Manchester City fan, I was not very sad about what happened."

    Rash and Burn

    Marcus Rashford has given his reasons why he believes Man United fell apart in the second-half against Liverpool.

    Ahead of tonight's home game against Real Betis, he said: "We didn't give up, that's nonsense.

    "We were unorganised yes, communication was bad yes, that's why we conceded the goals.

    "But it comes down to the fact I believe everyone was trying to get back into the game that much, we came away from the team's principles in and out of possession.

    "I felt like the forwards were just trying to press as a unit but we weren't connected with the midfielder, same with midfield and defence."

    Special Bru

    Erik Ten Hag has backed Bruno Fernandes as an "inspiration" despite his Anfield meltdown, writes SunSport's Neil Custis.

    There were calls for the Manchester United midfielder to be stripped of the captain's armband for his histrionics during Sunday's humiliating 7-0 hammering by Liverpool.

    But asked if he is sticking by the Portuguese when club captain Harry Maguire is on the bench, ten Ha said: "Yes, definitely. He's pointing and coaching players, he's an inspiration for the team. But no one is perfect.

    "Everyone has his mistakes and everyone has to learn. I have to learn, he will learn as well because he's intelligent."

    Four Way Fight

    Chelsea have joined the battle for Manchester United target Hirving Lozano.

    The Napoli winger is enjoying an outstanding season for Serie A's runaway leaders.

    The 27-year-old is attracting huge interest from the Premier League, including Arsenal and Liverpool.

    Reports suggest the Blues are now also considering a move for the Mexican.

    Jurr the One

    Jurrien Timber has dropped a massive hint suggesting he could quit Ajax.

    Manchester United wanted to sign Timber last summer, but saw their pursuit fall flat as he signed a contract extension.

    As quoted by Ajax Life, Timber said: "Transfer? You never know what crosses your path.

    "This summer I will look at my options and make a decision.

    "I feel good at Ajax, that's important for now. Last summer there was interest, but I chose to stay at Ajax."

  • Kiro Evans

    Mar to Come

    Anthony Martial has returned to training ahead of Manchester United's clash with Real Betis.

    The striker has been plagued by injury issues for most of the season and it is unlikely he will feature in tonight's matchday squad.

    A hip injury has kept Martial out of action over the past few weeks with his last appearance coming against Nottingham Forest on February 1.

    The Frenchman has also had trouble with his back, hamstring and Achilles this season and has been limited to just 14 appearances.

    Real Problem?

    Real Betis arrive at Old Trafford tonight knowing they are underdogs to progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.

    But the Spanish side would have been watching closer than most when Liverpool put seven goals past the Red Devils.

    That may give Betis some confidence as they look to continue on in their strong season.

    The club are 5th in the LaLiga table and three points off a top four space. They are unbeaten in their last four.

    They are set to be the third Spanish side United have played in Europe this season following Real Sociedad and Barcelona.

    Harry Up

    Tottenham's tepid Champions League exit last night to AC Milan has increased speculation over the future of Harry Kane.

    Manchester United and Bayern Munich are top of the queue for the Premier League's second-top scorer this season.

    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will know that only a year remains on Kane's contract and it may be an awkward summer as he looks to hold onto his star.

    Kane remains without a trophy in his career despite being considered among the best Premier League strikers of the last decade.

    Ready, Eddie, Go

    Manchester United are reportedly willing to smash their club record to sign Eduardo Camavinga. 

    Camavinga, 20, joined Real Madrid in 2021 from Rennes for £26million as a long-term replacement for Casemiro.

    Following the Brazilian's departure, Camavinga has enjoyed a more prominent role in the team and Madrid now want a reported £115m for him. 

    And according to Fichajes, it is a fee United are willing to pay. Erik ten Hag is keen to reinforce his squad's midfield and Camavinga fits bill.

    Ju Think?

    Arsenal legend Thierry Henry reckons he knows where Jude Bellingham wants to go. 

    The English teen is tipped to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer and head to one of the many European giants keen on his signature. 

    Speaking on CBS, Henry aired his theory of where Bellingham has his heart set. 

    He said: “Bellingham wants to play for Liverpool, right? Everyone knows that.”

    Liverpool legend and fellow pundit Jamie Carragher, grinning from ear to ear, replied: “I hope so.”

    A Big Night v Betis

    Manchester United will face their home crowd tonight for the first time since Sunday's devastating defeat at Anfield.

    Real Betis are in town for the first leg of this Europa League last-16.

    United had to beat Barcelona to get this far, but that confident team who drew at the Nou Camp and then beat the Catalan side in the second-leg no longer appear infallible.

    The Red Devils will be looking for a strong result tonight to shake-off the after effects of the 7-0 loss.

  • Kiro Evans

    Dalot New Deal

    Manchester United are in advanced talks with Diogo Dalot over a new long-term deal, writes SunSport's Jordan Davies.

    The Portuguese full-back, 23, has impressed since the arrival of boss Erik ten Hag last summer. Signed by Jose Mourinho in 2018 from Porto for £19m, Dalot's contract was set to run out this summer before United triggered a one-year extension before Christmas.

    The club are also aware of interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

    Dalot now appears the first-choice right-back at Old Trafford, overtaking teammate Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    U-Turn on Sale

    Manchester United may be taken OFF the market in a stunning U-turn, Ashley Armstrong and Martin Lipton write exclusively for SunSport.

    The Glazer family are now considering a scheme concentrating on the club's global fanbase and not the football pitch.

    Despite agreeing to takeover talks with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad al-Thani, all options are on the table – including scrapping the sale.

    Suggestions of a rift between the Glazer brothers or a possible buy-out by co-chairman Joel and Avram are strongly denied.

    Morning, United fans

    The Glazers could remain in charge of United and Casemiro is battling to make tonight's big Europa League tie.

    And on the transfer front the Red Devils are tipped to join a summer scramble for Napoli winger Hirving Lozano.

    That's this morning's wide range of news and gossip around Old Trafford.

    It's claimed United could be taken OFF the sales market in a massive U-turn.

    Current owners the Glazer family might instead try to raise money from the club’s global fanbase rather than on the football pitch.

    Meetings have still been agreed with bidders Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani.

    But it's claimed all options are on the table, with little sign that anyone is close to the Glazers’ £6billion valuation of the club.

    Midfielder Casemiro is the Red Devils' main doubt for this evening's last-16 first leg against Real Betis at Old Trafford.

    Defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka might be recalled following last Sunday's 7-0 loss at Liverpool as boss Erik ten Hag keeps one eye on this Sunday's home Prem game with Southampton.

    Meanwhile, United, Arsenal and Chelsea could all move for Mexico star Lozano in the summer.

    And Barcelona are understood to be keen on Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram – a reported Red Devils' target – in a free-transfer tussle at the end of the season.

    ‘Barca in for Utd and Arsenal target Thuram’

    Barcelona have reportedly entered the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram on a free transfer in a blow to Premier League sides.

    The French international – whose contract at the Bundesliga side is set to expire in the summer – has a host of admirers.

    Premier League sides including Man United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been linked with moves for him.

    They may all find it more difficult to land Thuram as Barcelona are now interested in signing him, according to fichajes.

    The report suggests that the 25-year-old could arrive as a replacement for Ansu Fati or Ferran Torres.

    Barca could be tempted to cash in on one of them in order to alleviate their financial struggles.

    The club are currently dealing with an impending transfer ban which would make registering new players difficult.

    Thuram also has ties to Barcelona as his father, Lilian, played for the club between 2006 and 2008.

    The forward has been in great form this season for Monchengladbach.

    He has scored 14 goals and provided four assists in 24 appearances in all competitions.

    Red Devils 'could be taken off market'

    United could be taken OFF the sales market in a massive U-turn.

    And instead the Glazer family is considering a scheme to make money from the club’s global fanbase and not the football pitch.

    Despite agreeing to meetings with Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani over a potential sale, it appears that ALL possible moves are on the table including scrapping the entire process.

    So far there is little sign that any bidders are coming close to the Glazers’ £6bn valuation of the club.

    Suggestions of a rift between the Glazer brothers or a possible buy-out by co-chairmen Joel and Avram are being strongly denied. 

    One senior source said "The family will act as one. It will either be a full sale or an alternative".

    The US-based Raine Group, appointed by the Glazers to handle the sale process set in train in November, is understood to still be looking at a range of options and no final decision has been made.

    Those include the full sale that is the intention of Sheikh Jassim, a banker and member of the Qatari royal family.

    It would also allow for the proposed Ineos buy-out of the Glazers’ 69 per cent holding but not the rest of the club share stock.

    But another option being given serious consideration would be using external cash – four US hedge funds are in the market to have a possible role – to create a new company to push the club’s merchandising and digital commercial operation.
