Hello Manchester United fans
Manchester United are said to have pulled out of the race for Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland after finding out they wanted to go to Real Madrid.
The sensational report comes from the Daily Star, which claim United conceded defeat in an effort to sign Haaland ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils have been huge admirers of center-forward and interim manager Ralf Rangnick, who will become a consultant this summer, really wants to land him.
But the competition is still intense, as Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool are also linked.
Meanwhile, United have offered Paul Pogba a new contract worth £ 500,000 a week.
Pogba’s deal expires this summer when he is free to discuss with teams outside England about a possible transfer.
The midfielder is being watched by Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and ex-club Juventus amid the transfer window underway in January.
SunSport understands that the France international has yet to decide whether he will put pen to paper on new terms with United.
Red Devils sources fear the 28-year-old will leave the club, but the new deal is costing around £ 100,000 more than he is expected to get across Europe.
This would make the Frenchman the highest paid player in Premier League history, with a base salary of around £ 400,000 per week before the additions.
And Pogba will resume full training next week after getting the green light from the club’s medics.
The former Juventus star has been out for two months after injuring her thigh while on international service with France.
SunSport understands the midfielder did light racing with his conditioners at Carrington last week.
Red Devils medical staff are set to let Pogba join the main squad later this week and the player is reportedly aiming for a first-team return by the end of the month.
Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave this summer if he does not agree with the new management appointment.
That’s according to the Daily Star, which reports that Ronaldo’s future depends on who becomes the permanent head coach after Rangnick’s tenure as interim boss ends.
This means that new CEO Richard Arnold, who replaced Ed Woodward, will now be under more pressure to get the job.
Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is the favorite to take the lead
