  • PAUL LIKES PAUL

    Paul Scholes had compared Paul Pogba to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

    Pogba has suffered hefty criticism from the likes of Scholes since returning to Old Trafford.

    But the former Oldham boss the UTD Podcast: “I played a bit with Paul and everyone knows the talent he’s got.

    “He’s been brilliant for Juventus, brilliant for France in the World Cup and really good at times here [at United] as well.

    “He can do everything as a midfield player and you’d probably liken him to Steven Gerrard with the pace, the power, the skill. He can do absolutely everything.”

  • GOOD MORNING, RED DEVILS FANS

    Manchester United are not going to be spending big bucks on Harry Kane because Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he already has a striker just as good.

    It wasn’t long after Solskjaer took charge that he pulled Marcus Rashford to one side and told him the extent of the belief he had in the young striker’s ability.

    It was in that conversation that he told him he could be as good as Tottenham hitman Kane.

    With Rashford just 22 and Kane turning 27 in three months, Solskjaer knows he will also get plenty more years out of how own man by sticking with him as his main striker.

    Rashford was having his best scoring season with 19 before a back injury cut short his campaign in January.

    But he will be fit again for the final nine games when football returns from coronavirus lockdown.

    Meanwhile, United have added Kai Havertz to their summer transfer targets with the star in “constant communication” with Leverkusen over his future.

    The 20-year-old has caught the eye of Europe’s big guns following a series of impressive displays for the Bundesliga club.

    And he is now on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s wishlist along with Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish and Leicester’s James Maddison.

    Bayern Munich are also keen on the ace, but Havertz has recently hinted he would rather move abroad.

    Finally, Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele is reportedly interesting United and Arsenal but a bid is being held back by injury concerns.

    Despite costing an initial £92million back in 2017, Dembele is said to be among those available for the right fee.

    For that price, a return of just 19 goals in 72 games across almost three full seasons has led to the Frenchman being labelled a serious flop.

    Nevertheless, United and Arsenal are reportedly investigating Dembele's rocky injury history to determine whether it is down to bad luck, Barcelona's mismanagement, or a more deep-rooted problem affecting the player, who has missed 26 games this season.

  • WE CAN WIN IT

    United captain Harry Maguire has his sights set on winning the Premier League title, insisting finishing in the top-four should not be the limit of the club's ambition.

    Before coronavirus brought British football to an immediate standstill, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were unbeaten in 11 matches in all competitions to close to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea.

    He told Sky Sports: “I knew when I first came to Manchester United, (something) that Ole said to me loads and loads it's a building process but we'll be where we want to be.

    “I can see where we're heading and the style he wants to implement on the team.

    “Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of aspects we need to improve to get to the top of where we want to be. We don't want to be challenging for this Champions League spot, we want to be challenging for titles.

    “We know there's still a lot of improvement to get there, but we're on the right track and I'm sure eventually we will get there.”

  • NEV'S NICE TOUCH

    Gary Neville has “overwhelmed” Brighouse Town with a “significant” donation – as he holds the non-League club close to his heart for being the last team he watched with his late father Neville.

    The Manchester United legend and Salford City co-oner pledged the unspecified amount on the part-timers' JustGiving page after the coronavirus pandemic ended the season early for football below the sixth tier.

    Neville said: “Brighouse Town holds a special place in my heart even though the result did not go in our favour with Salford City suffering a 3-1 defeat on the day.”
