    MAGUIRE UPDATE

    Manchester United star Harry Maguire has issued a promising injury update.

    Maguire told SunSport: "The fear that I had was missing everything.

    “I knew it was quite a bad injury. When I got the results of the scan, I knew it would be unlikely I would made the Europa League final — but we also never ruled it out.

    “I would jump out of bed and put weight on my ankle, which I probably should not have done, and test it to see if the pain was still there. Every morning, I woke up wishing the pain would be gone.

    “Unfortunately, it was not to be. I knew for me to start the Europa League final was very unlikely but I hoped to play some part. However it was out of reach and just not possible. Ahead of the final, I could still not run on the ankle.

    “But it is now improving and getting better, so I am just looking forward to the Euros”

    WALK THE LINE

    Gary Lineker believes Tottenham superstar Harry Kane could join Manchester United.

    Lineker told Goal: "I would love to see him at Barcelona but they are going for [Sergio] Aguero and are short on cash at the moment.

    "I think it is between Manchester City, Manchester United and maybe PSG.

    "They have [Mauricio] Pochettino and he would win things, guaranteed. I think it is more likely that one of the Manchester clubs can afford him outside of Chelsea.

    "I don't think he would go to Chelsea and do that to the Tottenham fans but who knows"

    “I'm delighted I've done that and now I'm part of England. I know Gareth watches the games along with his staff, so for me it's just about doing as well as I can at the highest level to try to be selected for as long as I can with the national team”

    NO GREEN LIGHT

    Manchester United ace Mason Greenwood has withdrawn from the England squad for Euro 2020 due to an underlying injury.

    Greenwood had been named in Gareth Southgate's provisional, 33-man squad for this summer's delayed tournament.

    RAPH IDEA

    Manchester United are still keeping tabs on Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane and have high hopes of signing him in the summer transfer window.

    Varane's contract runs out next year and Real could be keen on cashing in this summer in order to avoid the risk of losing him for free in 2022.

    However, much is going to depend on the upcoming regime change at the Santiago Bernabeu.
