    CALLING DYBS

    Paulo Dybala is reportedly set to sign a new contract at Juventus, in a transfer blow for Manchester United.

    The Argentine's current deal has just one year remaining, which has sparked plenty of interest.

    But following the return of Massimiliano Allegri to the Turin club, Dybala's Juve career is set for a new lease of life.

    Extension talks between the club and Dybala, 27, are said to have broken down earlier this year.

    Since being re-appointed on Friday, however, Allegri has chatted with the attacking midfielder over his role in the team.

    According to Goal, the Italian is keen to tie the playmaker down to a new deal.

    And talks are set to recommence later this week.

    GOOD MORNING UTD FANS

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is “lucky” to still be the Red Devils’ manager, according to Arsenal hero Martin Keown.

    Keown told talkSPORT: “They’ve had a succession of managers at the club but have not really been trusted and had a working relationship [with the club] and I do feel that with Ole.

    “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.”

    However, United’s Europa League final defeat to Villarreal could see them be handed a favourable Champions League group next season.

    The Red Devils lost on penalties in last week’s final in Gdansk as the Spanish side won the first major honour in their history.

    Solskjaer’s squad found themselves in Europe’s second-tier competition after failing to get out of their Champions League group.

    And United’s attempt to reach the knockout stages of next year’s European Cup have been boosted after missing out on Pot 1.

    Of the eight teams in Pot 1, the winners of the top six ranked domestic leagues are included, as well as the two champions from this term’s European competitions.

    England’s Manchester City, France’s Lille, Germany’s Bayern Munich, Italy’s Inter Milan, Spain’s Atletico Madrid and Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon are in Pot 1.

    And finally, Harry Maguire seems confident of featuring in England’s Euro 2020 kick-off match against Croatia on June 13.

    The Manchester United star suffered an ankle injury against Aston Villa and has since been in a race against time to be fit for the summer’s Euros.

    According to the Daily Mail, however, the centre-back’s progress is looking good and there is confidence that he will be fit in just two weeks.

    The Red Devils are reportedly set to meet Maguire on Monday for a fresh check-up, with the results once again beamed to Gareth Southgate’s physios.

    Sutton told BBC Radio 5Live: “There’s talk about Danny Ings leaving.

    “He could end up at Manchester City or Manchester United.

    “There are all sorts of rumours flooding around the Norfolk area, but that’s what I have heard.

    MORE FROM ROONEY

    Rooney also reckons it's crucial for the Three Lions' hopes this summer that Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire and Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson recover from injuries.

    He said: "England have a good chance and will be very hard for any team to beat if they reach the last four, with the semi-finals and final at Wembley.

    "But to succeed I think Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson have to be fit.

    'Those two plus Harry Kane are the spine of England’s team. Gareth needs them on the pitch.

    "Those players being there allows Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Mason Mount and Marcus Rashford to go and express themselves, and every side has those leaders, those rocks, whom the rest depend on in a crisis.

    "If the going gets tough in a game, Jordan and the two Harrys are the ones all the other players will look to."

    OVER TO ROO

    Wayne Rooney 'would have tried absolutely everything' to persuade Jamie Vardy to play at Euro 2020 – as he rates him an ideal strike-partner for England skipper Harry Kane.

    Vardy, 34, retired from international football in 2018 but is still in hot form for Leicester.

    Derby boss Rooney, 35, wrote in his Sunday Times column: "One man I wish was in Gareth’s squad is Jamie Vardy.

    "I would have tried absolutely everything to lure him out of retirement for these finals.

    "I know some people may be surprised at this, especially with the legal case between my wife and Jamie’s wife, but this is my honest football opinion.

    "He may be 34, but Jamie is still a brilliant player, who was involved in 24 goals in the Premier League this season and would have been a great asset – not only as an impact sub but as a potential starter.

    "Look at how Kane has been playing for Tottenham Hotspur, dropping deeper and playing through balls – Jamie could have been running on to them."

    GET GAB

    Manchester United have been dealt a blow following reports that Tottenham could be tempted to part ways with Harry Kane if City offer Gabriel Jesus plus cash.

    Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will try and get the best deal possible for Kane should any team try and buy him this summer.

    But according to the Daily Star, Spurs have an interest in Brazilian striker Jesus – opening up the possibility of a cash-plus-swap deal for Kane.

    Jesus is valued at £70million and if City chuck in a similar amount as well, Tottenham could be tempted to sell.

    GUNNER RAID

    Arsenal are poised to pinch ex-Manchester United fitness guru Tony Strudwick, according to reports.

    It is the latest step in Mikel Arteta's huge backroom overhaul after a dismal campaign for the Gunners.

    According to the Mirror, Strudwick is to take a role as academy head of sports science and medicine at Arsenal.

    Strudwick will leave his job as head of sports science and medicine at Sheffield Wednesday to work for the Gunners.

    He spent seven years at Old Trafford earlier in his career, working as a first-team coach before moving to head of athletic development.

    DIO-GO?

    Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot is unsure over his future at the club.

    The 22-year-old had a successful loan spell at Italian giants AC Milan, helping them finish second in the Serie A.

    Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Dalot said: “I like to become more and more complete.

    “The Italians love football, they always talk about it and being part of this culture has been a fantastic experience. And on the pitch, I feel I have improved a lot tactically.

    “There are some defensive aspects I learned here and it was fantastic to develop these qualities too.

    “That’s not the only thing either, as I improved in pressing high and recovering the ball as soon as possible.

    “Very useful stuff. I say that I had a fantastic year and met beautiful people.

    “It was a real pleasure to play for Milan but now I think about the Euros and I really don’t know (on his future) what will happen.”

    VAR-CICAL

    Manchester United are reportedly willing to double Real Madrid star Raphael Varane’s wages at Old Trafford.

    Real are ready to sell Varane if he opts to snub a new contract offer at the Santiago Bernabeu.

    According to ABC, Los Blancos are ready to make decisions regarding captain Sergio Ramos and the France international after confirming the signing of David Alaba.

    Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has prioritised a centre-back signing to partner up with Harry Maguire in defence, and Varane poses as his top preference.

    HARRY KAN STILL BE SIGNED

    Windass told This is Futbol: "Even though they’ve signed up Cavani, if they sign Harry Kane, then Cavani will be a squad player.
