GOOD MORNING UTD FANS
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly set to sign a new three-year deal worth £27million despite suffering heartbreak in the Europa League final.
The Red Devils lost an astonishing penalty shoot-out 11-10 to Villarreal as Solskjaer missed the opportunity to claim his first silverware as manager of the club.
But The Telegraph claims that the disappointing end to the campaign has not dissuaded Man Utd bosses from offering the Norwegian a new contract.
And it has also been reported that Solskjaer will be backed in the summer transfer window.
It is said that he will be given the funds to sign up to four players before the start of the new season as they look to close the 12-point gap to Premier League champions Manchester City.
Meanwhile, United are still in talks with Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho’s representatives over a potential summer deal.
According to Sky Sports, “as it stands, United represents the most realistic destination” for Sancho.
United are not going to have to worry about personal terms as they already agreed last summer when they tried to sign the star winger.
Dortmund are listening to offers for the England international and have not publicly named a price.
But it seems like the 21-year-old could be available for £80million, which is significantly less than the £108m the Bundesliga giants demanded last summer.
And finally, Harry Maguire is reportedly confident of featuring in England’s Euro 2020 kick-off against Croatia.
The Three Lions face their Group D rivals in just over two weeks’ time and are sweating on the fitness of their star centre-back.
The 28-year-old had been ever-present for Manchester United in the Premier League until he suffered ankle ligament damage against Aston Villa – ruling him out of the run-in.
The Red Devils’ form crumbled in his absence and he watched from the stands as his team lost Wednesday’s Europa League final.
Following the defeat in Gdansk, United have increased their communication with the England setup and national team staff checked in with Maguire on Friday.
According to the Mail, his progress is looking good and there is confidence that he will be fit for June 13.
United are reportedly set to meet Maguire again on Monday for a fresh check-up, with the results once again beamed to Gareth Southgate’s physios.
