    DEC-ISION TIME

    Manchester United have been urged to prioritise the signings of Declan Rice and Wesley Fofana this summer by Owen Hargreaves.

    England ace Rice particularly is on the radar of the likes of Chelsea, with Hammers boss David Moyes rating him at over £100million.

    But Hargreaves reckons he's worth it, telling Premier League productions: “I think Rice’s upside is off the charts.

    "He has the potential to be anything and a lot better… I think he plays within himself at West Ham. People don’t realise how big he is… he’s 6ft 3in, so he looks like a centre back but he’s actually really good technically.

    “I’m not a big fan of players who just play in there and pass it around, you have to stop players too.

    “Declan Rice doesn’t have to dictate the game for Man Utd, he can pass to the players who can make the difference and be good defensively.”

    OH MOY

    David Moyes has done an exceptional job at West Ham but his record of managing against Manchester United suggests his side have their work cut out tonight.

    Moyes returns to Old Trafford this evening looking for his first win over former club United since his 2014 sacking.

    Seven years on from his sacking at United and Moyes is still yet to beat them since his departure.

    The ex-Toffees boss' record against the Red Devils was hardly glowing before taking over at the Theatre of Dreams.

    In fact, Moyes had overseen just three wins in 22 attempts against United during his 11-year stint at Everton.

    Can he rewrite the history books by claiming a famous win for the Hammers tonight?

    POPE BLESSING

    Manchester United's long-term goalkeeping situation is still up in the air and the club are reportedly considering a move for Nick Pope.

    Dean Henderson has been playing while David de Gea was in Spain for the birth of his daughter.

    But it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still undecided on his No 1 and United are weighing up a bid for Burnley keeper Pope.

    The England shot stopper has impressed United and could be a target if the Red Devils decide to offload De Gea this summer.

    Pope has kept nine clean sheets for Burnley this season and his consistency has reportedly caught the eye at Old Trafford.

    Could Nick Pope be heading to Old Trafford this summer?

    SOL DESTROYING

    Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is reportedly set for a new contract worth £9million a year.

    The Manchester United boss only has just over a year remaining on his current deal.

    Solskjaer is set to be rewarded with a new contract but he still won't be in the top five best paid managers in the Premier League.

    Pep Guardiola is believed to be raking in around £20m a year at City.

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham chief Mourinho both earn £15m per season.

    Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti is paid £11.5m per year at Goodison Park, ahead of Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers (£10m).

    RONNY RETURN?

    Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named Cristiano Ronaldo as one of two players he would love to sign.

    Ronaldo's future at Juventus has been a hot topic following the team's Champions League exit against Porto.

    The Portugal star enjoyed great success at Old Trafford and Solskjaer would not think twice about bringing him back if given the opportunity.

    Solskjaer told the club website: “There’s a few players I’ve played with that I’d love to have in my team, of course.

    “I’d love the player Roy Keane, I’m not sure if I could manage him though.

    "I’d sign him every day of the week, Roy was so influential but then again, I played with Cristiano [Ronaldo] and he’s been the best player in the world alongside Messi for the past 10-15 years now, so Cristiano.

    “You’d take him in your team, for sure.”

    COME COLL-ING

    Darren Fletcher has taken on the technical director role at Manchester United and this is likely to strengthen the club's interest in Stoke defender Nathan Collins.

    Fletcher spent two years at the Bet365 Stadium while Collins was coming through the club's academy.

    The youngster made his debut in the same season Fletcher called time on his playing career in 2019.

    The 19-year-old centre-back is on the Red Devils' radar and could be seen as a potential future partner for Harry Maguire.

    OLE NOT SORRY

    It went from the dream job to a nightmare in less than a season after swiftly becoming clear it was also the impossible one.

    Yet of all the sympathy David Moyes has subsequently had over the thankless task he had in filling Sir Alex Ferguson’s shoes, he should not expect any from the man now in the hot seat.

    Moyes returns to Old Trafford later with his West Ham side pushing for an unlikely top-four finish.

    But he will not be getting any sympathy from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his unsuccessful spell in charge of Manchester United.

    Solskjaer said: “I don’t think you can feel sorry for someone who managed Manchester United.

    “It’s a dream job for many, many managers and David wouldn’t have taken it if he didn’t want it but, unfortunately, he didn’t last as long as he would have wanted.

    “But in football you shouldn’t be surprised at anything and he is proving again what he’s capable of at West Ham."

    RED LIST

    Manchester United's new technical team will hold a transfer summit with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week to nail down their targets for the summer.

    United finally overhauled their senior management structure last week which saw John Murtough appointed football director and former star Darren Fletcher being named their first technical director.

    SunSport understands striker Edinson Cavani will not be offered a new contract signalling the end of his time at Old Trafford.

    A decision will also be taken over Anthony Martial's future with the French forward struggling for consistency at United.

    Erling Haaland is one of their main transfer targets but the Red Devils will plan for alternatives, such is in the interest in the prolific Borussia Dortmund striker.

    A new central midfielder is also wanted and Declan Rice, who will face them later for West Ham, remains a major target.

    RON'S OBSESSION

    Cristiano Ronaldo's self-obsession helped him become the player he is today, according to a former Manchester United teammate.

    Former Danish wonderkid Mads Timm spent three years training with the Juventus star, who was signed from Sporting Lisbon for £12.24million in 2003, before he was released.

    "He was quite extraordinary as a footballer, and as a person," Timm writes in his book Red Devil.

    "Like me, he was bullied when he came to the club. With his hair – which he soon got clipped – and with his almost acrobatic attempt to impress the coaches.

    "He could stand and do 10-15 step overs before he tried to dribble past the opponent.

    "Pass now, just pass, dammit,' shouted Gary Neville and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer constantly to him when we had reserve team matches together.

    "The special thing about Cristiano Ronaldo was that he immediately took the fight against the hierarchy. And he won it.

    "He was completely indifferent to the rest of his teammates. He gave no room for others. It was me, me, me. Cristiano Ronaldo. CR7."

    KEANE AS MUSTARD

    Roy Keane is plotting a return to management and has his eyes on the Celtic job.

    The Manchester United legend is up for the task of taking on Steven Gerrard’s Rangers if the call comes.

    The Parkhead post is right up his street because of his strong links to the club.

    The former Bhoys midfielder, 49, was offered the job before and declined, but he would say yes this time — and that might fit with Celtic’s requirements.

    Senior Celtic chiefs want to keep the existing coaching staff and put a ‘figurehead’ in charge. Keane does not have a backroom team that he uses, so that would be ideal.

    TEENAGE KICKS

    Man Utd's injury crisis could see Amad Diallo make his Premier League debut against West Ham tonight.

    The teenager scored his first goal for the Red Devils with a stunning header during Thursday’s 1-1 draw against AC Milan in the Europa League.

    And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be forced to turn to the 18-year-old once again with Anthony Martial a major doubt for West Ham.

    Marcus Rashford was absent for the Milan game due to an ankle injury while Edinson Cavani has missed six of the club's last seven matches.

    GOOD MORNING RED DEVILS FANS

    SunSport can exclusively reveal that Man Utd’s new technical team will hold a transfer summit with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week to nail down their targets for the summer.

    Top of the list is a new centre-forward.

    Edinson Cavani will not be offered an extension to his current one-year deal while a decision will be made on whether to accept offers for Anthony Martial.

    A new central midfielder is also wanted, with Nemanja Matic likely to be allowed to leave.

    The club are looking to bring in someone to provide cover at right-back.

    And a new top-class centre-back is also wanted to come in alongside Harry Maguire.

    There is also likely to be discussion about the goalkeeping team.

    Meanwhile, we can also reveal Roy Keane wants the Celtic manager’s job — and a sensational return to Scottish football.

    The United and Republic of Ireland legend is up for the task of taking on Steven Gerrard’s Rangers if the call comes.

    The Parkhead post is right up his street because of his strong allegiance to the club.

    The former Bhoys midfielder, 49, was offered the job before and declined, but he would say yes this time — and that might fit with Celtic’s requirements.

    Senior Celtic chiefs want to keep the existing coaching staff and put a ‘figurehead’ in charge.

    Keane does not have a backroom team that he uses, so that would be ideal.

    Finally, Premier League CEO Richard Masters is hoping up to 10,000 fans can attend the final two fixtures of the season.

    The current schedule is expected to be amended to allow all 20 clubs to have spectators for their final home match.

    Speaking to Premier League Productions, Masters said: "The government's roadmap is really welcome, it sets out a plan for the return of supporters.

    "Hopefully the final two of the fixtures of our season will have up to 10,000 supporters in them all.

    "We have got to get past those first initial steps in the roadmap to get there but it will be a fantastic finale to the end of our season."

    EXCLUSIVE BY DUNCAN WRIGHT

    Man Utd’s new technical team will hold a transfer summit with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this week to nail down their targets for the summer.

    Top of the list is a new centre-forward who will finally end the long search for a recognised goalscorer at Old Trafford.

    Edinson Cavani will not be offered an extension to his current one-year deal while a decision will be made on whether to accept offers for Anthony Martial.

    A new central midfielder is also wanted, with Nemanja Matic likely to be allowed to leave.

    The reliance on Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back has been shown this season and the club are looking to bring in someone else to provide cover in that position.

    And a new top-class centre-back is also wanted to come in alongside Harry Maguire.

    There is also likely to be discussion about the goalkeeping team.

    CITY SLICKERS

    Man City pulled 17 points ahead of Man United at the top of the table thanks to a 3-0 win at Fulham.

    It was all square going into the second half when John Stones put City ahead in the 47th minute.

    Subsequent strikes from Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero sealed the win for Pep Guardiola's men.

    But United have two games in hand to play, starting with Champions League hopefuls West Ham on Sunday.

    MAN FOR MAN

    Man Utd will go head to head with Chelsea in a summer transfer battle for Roma's Gianluca Mancini, according to reports.

    The Roma centre-back, 24, is set to be available for a cut-price fee of £27million when the market reopens due to the financial impact of coronavirus.

    And according to the Express, that could tempt the Premier League giants to fight it out for his signature.

    LIFE ON MARS

    Man Utd have suffered a transfer blow after scout Mathieu Seckinger quit for Marseille, according to reports.

    The French club have already poached two members of United's scouting team in David Friio and Omar Sciolla.

    And now they've made it hat-trick as Marseille's Head of Football Pablo Longoria transforms the backroom staff.

    Seckinger spent five years with the Red Devils and was recently promoted to first-team scout after years as a Academy Youth Scout.

    He was responsible for picking out youngsters Aliou Traore, Noam Emeran, Hannibal Mejbri and Willy Kambwala.
