    “I do feel, when you look at it, he’s lucky to still be there really.

    "He knows the standards that are being set and he can’t keep suffering disappointments, semi-final after semi-final, getting to finals.

    “I do think he’s fortunate but this is the current day Manchester United”

    SAM-THING SPECIAL

    Manchester United are keen to bring West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone back.

    United have placed Johnstone at the top of their wishlist if David De Gea or Dean Henderson go in the summer.

    The Baggies might cash in after being relegated to the Championship as the England international is also one of their top earners.

    The 28-year-old made a total of 37 appearances this season and was one of the few West Brom aces who impressed during a turbulent campaign

    SANCHO UPDATE

    Manchester United are still in talks with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho's representatives over a potential summer deal.

    CROWN JUL

    Sevilla's French prospect Jules Kounde admits he might have to 'change clubs' to realise his potential in a major boost for Prem clubs.

    The 22-year-old defender has been trailed by Arsenal, as well as Manchester United and Chelsea.

    He helped Sevilla win the Europa League after moving from Bordeaux in 2019 and his LaLiga form hasn't gone unnoticed among the Premier League giants.

    Kounde received his first France call-up for this summer's Euros, and he was grilled by reporters at the team's Clairefontaine training camp about his future.

    He said: "Regarding my future, it’s certain that I will perhaps have to change clubs this summer.

    "But nothing has been finalised yet. I have not decided anything.

    "My goal is to play for a big club, to try to always progress and to win trophies."

    THE WHITE STUFF

    Manchester United have been handed a transfer boost in their hopes of signing Brighton's Ben White this summer.

    According to the Manchester Evening News Ben White could cost in excess of £35million.

    However, Brighton could be open to a sale if recent comments by the South Coast club's chairman, businessman Tony Bloom are anything to go by.

    He told BBC Radio Sussex: "This season and the previous season have been really tough financially.

    "We have lost over £50m purely because of Covid over the two seasons. That money is never coming back.

    "We know some of our best players are not going to be with us forever.

    “If the right offer comes along — and it has to be the right offer — and they want to go, then they will leave."

    KINGSLEY COM-ING?

    Manchester United are in the hunt to sign Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman, according to journalist Christian Falk.

    The news was delivered on The United Stand youtube channel, with Falk suggesting the Red Devils have held a long-term interest in the Frenchman.

    He said: "They are interested in him, and they were last summer already.

    "I think sometimes they do it to make a little bit of pressure on the [Jadon] Sancho deal but there is a true interest in him."

    Barcelona are also said to be keen on Coman, and a fee of £61.5million has been mooted as a potential price for the 24-year-old, via Sport.

    LOOKING AT VAR

    Manchester United continue to be linked with a transfer swoop for Raphael Varane and will reportedly double his wages should he join.

    And Real Madrid are ready to sell the France international if he opts to snub a new contract offer at the Bernabeu.

    It could take £60m for Madrid to sell Varane, who has just one year remaining on his contract.

    GREAL DEAL?

    Jack Grealish has fuelled speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United this summer transfer window with his activity on social media.

    Speculation over his future has continued to mount this season, with United's city neighbours and Premier League champions Manchester City both heavily linked with a big-money swoop.

    Grealish, though, has seemingly hinted that United can't be discounted from the transfer race yet – having 'liked' a social media post this morning begging him to opt for Old Trafford.

    The post in question read: "Please join United."

    However, after initially 'liking' that post, the Villa captain and England playmaker issued a u-turn by clicking 'unlike' – but not before it had been spotted by eagle-eyed social media users.

    RIVAL TALK

    Manchester City defender Eric Garcia is on his way to Barcelona and he aimed a dig Manchester United after being compared to Gerard Pique.

    Pique played at Old Trafford between 2004-2008 but failed to establish himself as a regular starter – Garcia has suffered the same at The Etihad.

    In an interview with L’Esportiu Garcia was asked about his likeness to the 24-year-old.

    He said: "I don’t care because I think we’re different footballers, right? The truth is, I play down the subject.

    “Gerard has achieved everything, he is one of the best central defenders in the world, he is more than recognised and I am 20 years old and I am starting my career, practically.

    “So the only possible comparison is this: that we are both from the [Barcelona] academy and we lived in Manchester, but he played for the not so good team."

    RED HEAT

    Tom Heaton has agreed a two-year deal with Manchester United.

    The 35-year-old goalkeeper left Aston Villa on a free transfer last Friday.

    Heaton has jetted off on a ten-day family holiday but is set to sign terms at Old Trafford on his return.

    United have offered three-cap England stopper Heaton a two-year deal plus the option of an extra 12 months.

    The Red Devils have been on the hunt for another keeper, with the future of back-ups Lee Grant and Sergio Romero uncertain.

    Heaton came through the ranks at United and was part of the squad between 2002 to 2010 but failed to make a first-team appearance.
