  • THIA-GO-GO

    One-time United target Thiago Alcantara, who David Moyes and Ed Woodward infamously failed to sign for United, has told team-mates he wants to move to the Premier League… with rivals Liverpool.

    The Italy-born midfielder, who has Brazilian parents and plays for Spain was approached by United when leaving Barcelona in 2013.

    But Bayern Munich were quick off the mark and landed him instead.

    Now, according to Bild's Christian Falk, he has told pals he wants a switch to Jurgen Klopp's champions elect.

  • JADON THE MONEY

    Borussia Dortmund want £117million for Jadon Sancho to leave, according to reports.

    The 20-year-old has been red hot this season with 20 goals and 20 assists to his name in all competitions.

    United are the only option for the winger as it stands and at £117m, the Red Devils face a huge bill for signing the England ace, according to Bild.

    Former United midfielder Owen Hargreaves described Sancho as a ‘generational’ talent during the Bundesliga restart.

    And Sancho is keen to return to England and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are in need of a right winger.

  • IRE-ONY

    Stephen Ireland has emerged as a shock childhood hero of Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes.

    From the likes of Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard in the Premier League to the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in Spain, idols for aspiring teenagers were not in short supply during the late 2000s.

    But United’s £55million January buy from Sporting Lisbon appears to have ventured away from the pin-up superstars worshipped by the masses.

    Ireland, who spent nine years at City earlier in his career, told The Atheltic: “He (Bruno Fernandes) told me that, as a kid, he had a poster of me.

    “He said that when he played Football Manager he always signed me.

    “I was like, ‘You had me on a poster? And, seriously, you sign me for FM?’ I mean, how weird is that?”

  • EXCLUSIVE – FRED DEAL IN PIPELINE

    Fred is open for talks over a new long-term Manchester United deal after a stunning turnaround in form.

    The Brazilian midfielder had a miserable start to life at Old Trafford, struggling to adapt to the Premier League.

    The 28-year-old has turned it around in recent months, putting in a string of fine performances as United fight for a Champions League spot.

    SunSport understands he is now ready to pen an extension at United, with three years left on his £130,000-a-week deal.

    He would like a bump-up in wages, allowing with some fresh incentives as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fight on three fronts.

    United hope he can lead them back into the Champions League this season, along with winning the FA Cup and Europe League.

  • COST A JIMEN' A LEG

    Manchester United will have to pay £90million if they are to sign Raul Jimenez this summer, it has been claimed.

    Wolves are desperate to keep their top scorer after almost two years of leading the line at Molineux in sensational style.

    A header at West Ham on Saturday made it 23 goals in all competitions this season for the 29-year-old Mexican, topped up by 10 assists.

    Such form has excited rumours of United and Juventus tracking Jimenez, who cost Wolves £30million when making his initial loan stint from Benfica permanent last year.

    According to journalist Duncan Castles of the Transfer Window podcast, the Black Country club have named their price at £90m for the upcoming market.

    It is said that the Red Devils have made a number of enquiries about the player's availability in recent months as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer searches for the ideal partner for Marcus Rashford in his attack.
