    Morning, United fans

    Marcus Rashford could land a new five-year contract, United have moved for Denzel Dumfries and Newcastle fancy Scott McTominay.

    That's the top player talk around Old Trafford as the Red Devils prepare for Wednesday's Premier League clash at Crystal Palace.

    United are willing to hand England striker Rashford, 25, a 50% pay rise to £300,000 a week.

    But club chiefs are anxious not to go above that mark, despite their leading earner David de Gea picking up £375k.

    Meanwhile, it's claimed the Red Devils have stolen a march on Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs by launching talks over Dumfries.

    Inter Milan would reportedly consider selling the Holland right-back, 26, for around £53million.

    Sweden attacker Jesper Karlsson has also been linked to United.

    The 24-year-old is tipped to leave Dutch club AZ Alkmaar this year. 

    But United's one-club man McTominay could be tempted away by top-four rivals Newcastle. 

    The Scotland midfielder, 26, is understood to want more game-time.

    Finally, the Red Devils and United are said to be monitoring Real Betis winger Luiz Henrique.

    Rice at ‘centre of £80m transfer fight’

    Declan Rice has been identified as Arsenal’s top summer transfer target, reports suggest.

    West Ham star Rice is entering the final year of his contract at the London Stadium this summer – although there is an optional extra year – and with their recent struggles, Rice may finally opt to jump ship.

    A number of top clubs are interested in the 24-year-old, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal.

    This summer is set to see a bidding war for the Englishman, which could see him eventually leave for £80million.

    However, according to The Times, Arsenal believe they are in the strong position to sign Rice because they are the Premier League leaders.

    The report indicates the Gunners remain keen on a new midfielder, and consequently have made Rice their priority.

    Rice fits the mould of player targeted by Mikel Arteta in recent windows. He is young, aggressive, and has a burning desire to play in the Champions League – something Arsenal look all but certain to be able to offer next season.

    Arsenal did prioritise signing a new winger this month but saw their efforts to land Mykhailo Mudryk fail after Chelsea threw a colossal package at the Ukrainian.

    ‘Most Utd fans disappointed by Antony’

    Paul Parker believes £85.5million winger Antony “seems very immature on the pitch” and has “disappointed” most Manchester United fans.

    The ex-Old Trafford defender claims the Brazil ace, 22, recruited from Ajax in August, has yet to adjust to English football.

    Former England star Parker told Soccernews: “Antony has done okay for Man United.

    “He hasn’t been amazing but he is also young and needs to adapt to the Premier League.

    “But honestly, I think that the vast majority of the fans have been disappointed by him.

    “They expected a different kind of player. They expected him to be very quick and run past defenders but he hasn’t really done that.”

    “I personally think that he is thinking too slow and he seems very immature on the pitch. He needs to beat people more and believe in himself because he has the abilities to be a very good winger for Man United.”

    Ronaldo set to be skipper vs Messi's PSG

    Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly make his Saudi Arabian debut as CAPTAIN as he prepares to face off with old rival Lionel Messi.

    Ronaldo and Messi have been at the forefront of world football for well over 15 years.

    Both continued to reach new heights, including dominating the famous Ballon d'Or trophy from 2008 to 2017.

    However, Ronaldo finally called time on his European career after signing for Saudi side Al Nassr following the mutual termination of his deal at Manchester United.

    Ronaldo signed a record-breaking £173million-a-year contract at the club.

    And now, according to Marca, Ronaldo will make his debut in an exhibition match against Messi's Paris Saint-Germain.

    Rashford in talks over new 5-year Utd deal

    Manchester United are in talks with Marcus Rashford over a new five-year, £300,000-a-week contract.

    But the Red Devils will not bust their new pay structure for him.

    The club do not want to go above a £300k ceiling as they aim to move away from the days when players like Alexis Sanchez earned £500,000-a-week.

    United also had issues with huge wages for former stars Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Rashford, 25, is currently on £200,000-a-week and will be offered a 50 per cent pay rise with incentives on top of that.

    The current top earner at the club is goalkeeper David de Gea on £375,000-a-week.

    But with his deal running out in the summer, they will only offer the 32-year-old reduced terms of around £275,000.

    Ten Hag is an 'angel' blessing the Devils

    Erik ten Hag is "the best thing that has happened for Man United for many, many years" -an "angel" for the Devils.

    That's the verdict of ex-United defender Paul Parker after the Dutchman guided them to third in the Prem.

    Parker told Soccernews: "He has arrived like an angel with the purpose of blessing the club.”

    “Even the ones that doesn´t like Man United must say that he has done incredibly well since he arrived.

    "I think that people were expecting the Man United circus to continue but he has proved to be an excellent manager.”

    “He has first of all brought discipline to the club.

    "There are no longer being spread weird stories and rumours from the locker room and I think we need to give him credit for that.”

    “His record is amazing with the club and he became the fastest Man United manager ever to get 20 wins. But you can not compare his stats to Sir Alex Ferguson because it was a different time.”

    Forest confirm Danilo coup

    Nottingham Forest have seen off competition from Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona to land Brazilian wonderkid Danilo.

    Steve Cooper has pulled off an £18million coup to sign the 21-year-old Palmeiras defensive midfielder, with the help of his former team-mate Gustavo Scarpa.

    Danilo, who will wear the No28 shirt, has signed a six-and a-half-year deal which commits him to Forest until the summer of 2029.

    After completing his move to The City Ground, Danilo said: “I’m really happy to be fulfilling my dream of playing in the Premier League and playing for Nottingham Forest.

    “I learnt a bit about the history of the Club and saw they had won two European Cups.

    "I spoke to Gustavo Scarpa as well, and he told me that Nottingham is a great city and Forest have a quality squad with really good staff.

    “I will show a lot of determination and a strong desire to win and will always look to do my best on the pitch to achieve positive results.

    “I’m excited about getting started and meeting my new team-mates.”

    ‘Exciting ‘Garnacho tipped to grow with Utd

    John Barnes has singled out “exiting” 18-year-old Alejandro Garnacho for fast-improving United.

    The Red Devils were trailing 1-0 win when the Argentinian winger came on after 72 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 comeback home win over neighbours City.

    Ex-Liverpool and England wideman Barnes told BonusCodeBets: “Garnacho is a great talent and he has great potential. 

    “He’s quick and exciting on the ball.

    “However, you shouldn’t look to these young players to be the guys to ensure United finish in the top four.” 

    The Red Devils are currently third, five points clear of Tottenham in fifth.

    Utd face Casemiro & Fred dilemma

    Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag faces a selection headache ahead of Wednesday’s Prem clash at Crystal Palace.

    Midfield enforcers Casemiro and Fred face being BANNED for Sunday’s trip to Arsenal if they are booked against Palace.

    United make the trip down to Selhurst Park on Wednesday and Ten Hag will be desperate for the Brazilian duo to be on their best behaviour throughout.

    They both picked up a yellow card for their efforts in the comeback victory in the Manchester derby – with Casemiro providing an assist for Bruno Fernnandes’ controversial opener.

    However, it means both now sit on four yellow cards for the season.

    Premier League rules dictate players who receive five yellow cards within the first 19 games of the season will be slapped with a one-game ban.

    Following the derby, United have played 18 league games.

    And this means Casemiro and Fred face a ban if they are unable to keep out of the referee’s book.

    Guehi positive for United visit

    Crystal Palace centre-half Marc Guehi says Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea has not knocked their confidence ahead of Wednesday visit of Manchester United.

    He told the Eagles’ club website: “We showed that spirit and togetherness in the game and it’s unfortunate that we didn’t come away with at least a point.

    “Football is a harsh world. It comes down to the details, to both boxes, and in the end they were just better.

    “We competed well, we definitely stayed in the game. We created a few chances ourselves – at half-time we felt good.”

    Weghorst is ‘ten Hag’s signing’

    Rio Ferdinand believes Erik ten Hag is responsible for the signing of Wout Weghorst, and the Dutch tactician could get the best out of him for United.

    “I think this is a Ten Hag signing, and it is actually just is going against what United were doing before. We were buying [Radamel] Falcao, Zlatan [Ibrahimovic],” he told 90min.

    “We were buying names maybe before going ‘does this guy fit the way we want to play?’. This is very much not a fashionable signing, it’s not one that rolls off the tongue.

    “But I think if you look at Ten Hag’s history, you look at Ajax, he took [Sebastien] Haller, who no one was taking in the Premier League, off of West Ham, and he becomes one of the most feared strikers in Holland.

    “But also in Champions League football, he was up there with the top strikers in terms of goals in the couple of seasons he was there. That type of player, a Weghorst, suits the way that Erik ten Hag wants to play if you look at Haller as the one example, so you can see why he would bring him.

    “He’s got to have something about him. I don’t think you can judge him by the Burnley cameo, and I just think it’s about styles for Erik ten Hag, would he be able to fit into the way we play? In the way I want to play? Yes.”

    Arsenal versus United – key battles

    It is the latest installment of the ‘Pizzagate’ derby on Sunday when Arsenal host Manchester United – and there will be key battles all over the park.

    Not least how the Gunners’ re-imagined right-back Ben White copes with red-hot Red Devils’ forward Marcus Rashford cutting in from the left-hand side to wreak havoc.

    Arsenal are no slouches in attack themselves, of course, but perhaps key for them will be another dominant display from their latest centre-of-the-park phenom Martin Odegaard.

    If the purring Norwegian wins the battle against United’s wily Portuguese schemer Bruno Fernandes the Gunners may just take another giant step towards the Prem title.

    ‘Pizzagate’, for all you teenagers out there, saw former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas (allegedly) lob a slice at United’s legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson after a bad-tempered clash at Old Trafford in 2004. True story. Look it up.

    Red Devils 'in contact with Denzel'

    Manchester United have made contact with reported Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs target Denzel Dumfries.

    Italian website Tuttomercatoweb suggest the Red Devils have made the first major step over Inter Milan's Holland right-back.

    Red Devils 'keen on Jesper'

    AZ Alkmaar attacker Jesper Karlsson has been linked to Manchester United.

    Old Trafford chief Erik ten Hag is rated a big admirer of the Sweden star, 24.

    Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reckons £13million-rated Karlsson is expected to leave his Dutch club this year.

    The eight-cap ace has notched 37 goals and 28 assists in 104 games for Alkmaar.

    And he fits Ten hag's like for players who can operate anywhere across the frontline.

    Riy's and shine for Ron and Georgina

    Cristiano Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez enjoyed a family day out in "beautiful" Riyadh.

    Following the Manchester United legend's transfer to Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr, he and his family went out for the day to see the sites.

    Partner Georgina shared their experience on her Instagram page as she lavished praise on the "beautiful" city of Riyadh.

    She shared a compilation of photos of the trip starting with herself outside of the Riyadh Season Winter Wonderland.

    Georgina could be seen holding three large prizes won inside the park, as she stood in front of the "Sky Loop" ride.

    The ride is the "world's longest rollercoaster", and reaches a breathtaking maximum height of 52 metres and a speed of 68mph.

    The family was then shown in the next image, with Ronaldo donning a pair of glasses as he held youngest son Mateo.

    Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, who recently starred for his new team in Saudi Arabia, raised his arm to block the sun as he sat on the far left of the photo.

    Daughters Eva and Alana sat on Georgina's side of the photo with a beautiful water-themed backdrop behind them.

    Later they were seen enjoying a ride on a carousel, while Mateo was spotted alongside a number of people wearing comic book characters' costumes including Spiderman, Hulk, Black Panther, Wolverine and Deadpool.

    Facing United is key clash for Arsenal

    Arsenal's eight-point lead and fantastic form means boss Mikel Arteta should be "disappointed" with anything less than title glory this season.

    That's the verdict of ex-Liverpool and Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam after a momentous weekend for the Gunners.

    Champs Manchester City fell to a 2-1 turnaround defeat at neighbours United before Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-0 yesterday.

    And speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes: Fanzone, former Scotland ace Adam, said: "If Arsenal don't win the title, then Mikel will be disappointed come the end of the season.

    "I think you'd say if you're eight points clear in the Premier League at this stage of the season, in good form, scoring goals and winning football matches, you've got to expect to go on and win the title.

    "But, I've said it before, I can never rule out Manchester City going and winning 10 games in a row. They're more than capable of doing that, just as Arsenal are capable of losing a couple in a row.

    "We're set up perfectly for a great game on Sunday at the Emirates between Arsenal and Man United.

    "Two teams in great form, a great win for United at the weekend, and it's another huge challenge for Arsenal going forward.

    "But… up to this point. Every challenge they've faced, they've passed."

    is shop the last resort for Glazers?

    Manchester United fans are all saying the same thing after the Glazers set up a shop in Switzerland.

    The new luxury store is located in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos.

    But it's believed to have been built to "entertain clients and partners" rather than in hope of finding a buyer.

    Things are going well on the pitch under Erik ten Hag with the Red Devils sitting fourth and still left in three cup competitions, but the Old Trafford faithful regularly vent their frustration in the stands.

    And while they're be on a nine-match winning run, United fans are still calling for a takeover.

    The American owners put the club up for sale in November but are yet to find a suitable buyer.

    And some fans on social media reckon the shop highlights the desperate situation.

    One said: "Man United is one of the biggest brands in football, hard to believe that they're struggling to find a buyer."

    A second admitted: "They appear desperate to get rid."

    McTominay 'open to Toon move'

    He hasn't started a Prem match since the 6-3 loss at neighbours City on October 2.

    And the Magpies are rated amongst his main admirers.

    United have been urged to be patient over wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho.

    The Madrid-born Argentinian wideman, 18, has found more game-time this season – in the Carabao Cup plus sub roles in the prem.

    And former England winger John Barnes told BonusCodeBets: “He’s come into a team that are now playing with harmony, with togetherness. That will be good for him.” 

    “He has to be looked after. He should be dipped in and out of the team. 

    “You have to give him time and not over-emphasise how good he is.”
