    DON'T TRIP UP

    Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier is 'open' to joining Man Utd this summer, reports say.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in the market for a new right-back to provide competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

    And according to the Telegraph, the England international is desperate to return to the Premier League after two years in Spain.

    United have already had one bid rejected for Trippier, with Atletico holding out for £30million.

    Two other English sides remain keen to sign Trippier, but the player's preference is to link up with United.

    MORNING, UNITED FANS

    There's contrasting news about Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho as United appear to be losing out to Chelsea for dream signing Erling Haaland.

    It's claimed France centre-back Varane is very happy with the terms United might offer him – but are reportedly £20million short of Real Madrid's £60m valuation.

    Varane is in the final year of his deal, so could be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with a non-Spanish team in January.

    As for Sancho, United are tipped to complete a £73m move within days.

    Sevilla centre-back Jules Kounde is thought to have snubbed Tottenham as he is keener on United.

    PSG have confirmed the free transfer signing of AC Milan's Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who was linked with United and Chelsea.

    And United can expect competition from Spurs over idefender Cristian Romero, who is halfway through a two-year loan at Atalanta from Juventus.

    The Argentina star, 23, is rated at £39m fee, with add-ons taking it up to £51m.

    PSG'S RUMM DEAL

    PSG have confirmed the signing of Italy keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who was linked with Manchester United and Chelsea, on a free transfer from AC Milan.

    The Euro 2020 player of the tournament has penned a five-year contract with the French giants, who were deposed as Ligue 1 champs by Lille.

    The deal ends Donnarumma’s six years as Milan’s No1 stopper.

    The 22-year-old was just 16 when he made his San Siro debut.

    Donnarumma went on to play 251 times for Milan, winning the 2016 Italian Super Cup.

    But he will now line up alongside superstars including Neymar and Kylian Mbappe after opting to play for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

    Donnarumma said: “I am delighted to be part of this huge club.

    “I feel ready to take on this new challenge and continue to grow here.

    “With Paris, I want to win as much as possible and to bring joy to the supporters.”

    SANCHO 'DEAL CONFIRMATION WITHIN DAYS'

    Jadon Sancho's £73million arrival from Borussia Dortmund should be confirmed by Manchester United within days, reports suggest.

    The England wideman has already agreed personal terms and completed a medical on Tuesday

    It's thought he will formally complete his move by early next week at the latest as he recovers from the disappointment of missing a shootout penalty in England's Euro 2020 final defeat against Italy.

    UTD 'WAY OFF REAL'S VARANE VALUATION'

    Raphael Varane is 'very happy' with terms Manchester United are offering but Real Madrid want £20million MORE for their France defender.

    That's the claim from talkSPORT as Real eye £60m for the 28-year-old, compared to the £40m United have so far reportedly been willing to pay.

    Varane is in the final year of his deal, so could be free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with a non-Spanish team in January.

    United were also linked with Real legend Sergio Ramos, 35, who instead joined PSG.

    RASHFORD BACKING STILL SURGING

    Manchester United and the city's fans are re leading the groundswell of support for Marcus Rashford.

    The United and England striker faces racist abuse online after England's Euro 2020 final shootout defeat against Italy, as did fellow penalty-missers Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka.

    The Old Trafford media team have stayed on top of all the online messages swarming in with encouragement for the child poverty campaigner, who has also fought against injustice such as racism.

    BLUES READY TO MEET HAALAND PRICE

    Chelsea are prepared to meet Borussia Dortmund's asking price for Erling Haaland, according to reports.

    The Bundesliga side will reportedly accept an offer of £150million for the in-demand striker.

    And Blues' owner Roman Abramovich, who is determined to land the striker, is ready to make the necessary funds available, report German outlet Bild.

    The deal would break the British transfer record, and naturally Chelsea may need to offload some players to secure the move.

    Tammy Abraham has been linked with a move to West Ham this summer after falling out of Thomas Tuchel's plans last season.

    He is one of several first-team players who could depart, along with Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

    Ziyech only joined the club last year and has scored six goals in 39 games for The Blues.

    The highly-rated Hudson-Odoi has attracted interest from Bayern Munich, and Chelsea could now cash in.

    And according to Bild, the sale of that trio could raise around £90m, meaning Abramovich would only need to find £60m to finalise the Haaland transfer.

    ERLI BIRD

    Erling Haaland kicked off his pre-season training with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday amid talk of Chelsea launching a mega transfer bid for the striker.

    The German side welcomed the Norwegian back after joking that he was on his way to England when sitting out an earlier fitness test.

    A video of his dribbling and control session was posted online before Haaland shared a thumbs-up photo to his Instagram.

    He captioned the shot: "Day one✔️ Ready for the journey 💪🏻."

    The 20-year-old is reportedly strongly fancied by Premier League side Chelsea for a summer move.

    Borussia are intent on keeping Haaland, having already given Jadon Sancho the green light to join Manchester United.

    A price tag of £150million has been slapped on the Norway forward ahead of his release clause, thought to be set at £65m, becoming active next summer.

    Reports in Germany suggest Roman Abramovich is personally driving Chelsea's bid for Haaland.

    SANCHO: HATE WON'T WIN

    Jadon Sancho has bravely spoken out after suffering racist abuse but the England star insisted: 'Hate will never win'.

    Manchester United's new buy, along with fellow subs Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka, missed in the European Championship final penalty shootout loss to Italy.

    Afterwards, the courageous trio were subjected to vile racist abuse, which left Sancho saddened.

    But the winger vowed to bounce back better than ever as he thanked fans for their support and positivity.

    Sancho, 21, posted: "I’m not going pretend that I didn’t see the racial abuse that me and my brothers Marcus and Bukayo received after the game, but sadly it's nothing new.

    "As a society we need to do better, and hold these people accountable.
    Hate will never win.

    "To all the young people who have received similar abuse, hold your heads up high and keep chasing the dream."

    "I am proud of this England team and how we have united the whole nation in what has been a difficult 18 months for so many people."

    GUNNAR TRAINING

    Manchester United players not involved at Euro 2020 have been training ahead of Sunday’s pre-season clash with Derby.

    And a number are out to impress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they look to secure a place in his first-team squad this term.

    The Red Devils saw a large number of stars compete at this summer’s tournament, including Luke Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.

    Solskjaer’s Euro stars are now having a well-deserved rest as the new season kicks into gear.

    And that has paved the way for fringe players and youngsters to share the stage with first-team aces who have already had their holiday.

    Old Trafford aces including Mason Greenwood, Alex Telles and Juan Mata were all seen practising at United’s training ground.

    Other familiar faces such as Nemanja Matic, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Dean Henderson and Axel Tuanzebe were also present.

    The regulars were joined by players returning from loan spells, including Andreas Pereira, Tahith Chong and Di'shon Bernard, as well as new goalkeeper Tom Heaton.

    Meanwhile, there were also opportunities for academy graduates such as Joe Hugill, Ethan Galbraith, Anthony Elanga, Will Fish, Teden Mengi, Matej Kovar, Nathan Bishop and Shola Shoretire.

    And each player will now be desperate to start when United travel to Pride Park on Sunday for a friendly against Old Trafford legend Wayne Rooney's Rams.

    PUT YOUR HOUSE ON VARANE DEAL?

    Real Madrid superstar Raphael Varane is allegedly already house hunting in Manchester as United look to recruit the France centre-back.

    The Red Devils continue to work on a sensational deal to sign the highly-decorated star this summer transfer window.

    Now Diario AS claims he has already begun house hunting in the North West.

    UTD BOOST OVER KOUNDE

    Jules Kounde is reportedly snubbing Tottenham’s advances in the hope of securing a move to a Champions League club.

    Marca claim that the Sevilla ace is keen on a move to Manchester United with the Old Trafford side set to battle for Europe’s top club prize next season.

    And Football journalist Fabrizio Romano admitted that the Red Devils could be set to join the race for the defender’s signature with the club looking to strengthen their defensive options.

    Romano told the Here We Go Podcast: “We need to keep an eye on Manchester United for Kounde.

    “It’s true they want Varane but Kounde has always been on the list. The situation is open.”

    GOLDEN OLDIE

    Cristiano Ronaldo has shattered the record for oldest player to win the European Championship Golden Boot.

    SOUR GRAPES

    United legend Roy Keane criticised Jack Grealish for not taking a penalty in the Euro 2020 final because of 'sour grapes' over his Republic of Ireland switch, Trevor Sinclair has declared.

    He told TalkSport: “As we all know, Roy Keane has got an opinion. But you can’t just accept that knowing it’s not the truth.

    “Roy Keane’s not privileged, we are not privileged at talkSPORT to know what was going on in those meetings when we’re talking about penalties.

    “I believe Jack. I don’t think he’s a shrinking violet. He’s a player who steps up to the plate. When you want to make a name for yourself, that's when you step up.

    “I think with Roy Keane, with the fact Jack Grealish left the Irish squad, went to the England squad, I think there’s a little bit of sour grapes there personally.”

    WILL HE GO?

    Brandon Williams' loan move to Southampton has hit the skids – because of the size of the loan fee.

    Manchester United are understood to be looking for more than £2million to let another club borrow the versatile full-back.

    Saints have been keen on the 20-year-old since last summer but see that price as too rich for their blood.

    It means a deal is looking increasingly unlikely unless United reduce their demands.

    That is despite Williams himself being keen to join as he is keen to play regular games, having started just TWO Premier League games last season.

    It is believed he would still want to quit Old Trafford temporarily even if Alex Telles joins Jose Mourinho at Roma.

    ITALIAN JOB

    Giovanni Di Lorenzo is open to a potential Manchester United switch, according to a representative of the Italy international.

    Mario Guiffredi told Radio Marte: “I read about Manchester United but now it is newspaper talk.

    "If there were real things, we would be the ones to communicate it to Napoli. At the moment no request has arrived.

    "If offers arrive, we are obliged to take them into consideration, also in the interest of Napoli, because it is the president himself who has put everyone on the market.

    "So, we feel we are on the market. If an appropriate offer arrives it'll be discussed and considered.

    “(President Aurelio) De Laurentiis spoke at the press conference explaining Napoli's losses, and that all his players are transferable and that, if appropriate offers arrive, he will evaluate them himself."

    BLAME NEYM

    Neymar was Paris Saint-Germain’s secret weapon in their signing of Sergio Ramos.

    The Spaniard revealed that any doubts he had about a move to France were put to bed by the Brazilian.

    Ramos, 34, was monitored by Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Man City and Chelsea after he left Real Madrid on a free transfer last month.

    In an interview with L’Equipe, and reported by AS, he explained: “Neymar convinced me before signing for PSG.

    “Before signing for a new club, it is always helpful to talk with several players, or with Leonardo or Al Khelaïfi.

    “They all convinced me in their own way.”

    MAD WORLD

    Florentino Perez remarkably labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as an 'idiot' and Jose Mourinho as 'abnormal' in a leaked conversation from 2012.

    The recording comes just 24 hours after the Bernabeu chief was revealed to have branded club legends Raul and Iker Casillas as 'frauds' in 2006.

    And now El Confidencial have released more audio of the 74-year-old, and this time he took aim at the Juventus striker and the Special One.

    In a conversation from October 2012, Perez launched a scathing attack on Ronaldo, who would become Real's all-time top goalscorer.

    Speaking of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, he said: "He's crazy. This guy is an idiot, a sick man.

    "You think this guy is normal, but he's not normal, otherwise, he wouldn't do all the things he does."

    WAITING GAME

    Manchester United fans are expected to have to wait until August 7 to catch their first glimpse of Jadon Sancho in action.

    The star was at United’s Carrington training ground on Tuesday to take the next step in his career just two days after missing a penalty kick in the Euro 2020 final shoot-out against Italy.

    There was no problem with the medical he underwent and now an official unveiling of him in the club’s new kit is imminent.

    Those members of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad who were not involved in the European Championship have already returned to pre-season training.

    But the 21-year-old will have three weeks off before returning to training with his fellow Euro 2020 Three Lions stars Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.

    Now it seems that Sancho will make his United debut in their final friendly before the new Premier League season gets underway.

    And that will come at Old Trafford against the Toffees on August 7.

    POMPEY SHOCK

    Portsmouth have launched an investigation into claims academy players racially abused England stars in a sickening leaked group chat.

    A leaked group chat has been circulating on social media which appears to show Pompey youngsters sending vile messages to each other following England's penalty shootout loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final.

    Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka missed their spot-kicks at Wembley as the Italians lifted the trophy.

    A statement read: "Portsmouth Football Club are aware of images circulating on social media that allegedly originate from an academy Under-18 group chat and which are discriminatory in nature.

    "The club have launched an immediate investigation and will provide an update once this has been completed."

    HAARD TO READ

    Manchester United target Erling Haaland refused to commit his future to the club when asked by German media.

    The 20-year-old is also believed to be a transfer target for European champions Chelsea, with rumours suggesting the Blues will table a huge offer this summer.

    Christian Falk, a journalist for German newspaper Bild, claims the publication asked Haaland if he was staying at Dortmund.

    The Norway international reportedly smiled and said nothing, missing an opportunity to quash any lingering rumours.
