In other transfer news, United midfielder Paul Pogba has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer. Reports in France say PSG will 'test United's resolve' with a bid for Pogba, and that the player himself is open to moving to France.


Man United 'set Paul Pogba asking price' amid PSG interest

United have valued Paul Pogba at £50m this summer.

That's according to L'Equipe via The Mirror who report the Reds will ask for a bid in the region of £50m to sanction an exit for Pogba, who is heading into the final year of his contract.

It's also claimed PSG aren't put off by United's valuation for Pogba.

Pogba is set to return to United for pre-season.


Man United aiming to finalise pre-season training plans

Manchester United are attempting to arrange a fifth pre-season friendly after calling off a planned trip to Malta.

United held prolonged discussions about flying to the Mediterranean island to play a friendly but it is understood plans for the trip have now been scrapped.

Malta was added to the green list by the UK government last month but the Maltese government said anyone travelling from Britain and not double vaccinated against Covid-19 would have to quarantine on arrival in the country.

United are instead expected to travel to St Andrews in Scotland for training after they host Brentford on July 28. United could play another friendly against Championship club Preston North End, having already arranged games with Derby County, Queens Park Rangers, Brentford, and Everton.

Galbraith, Levitt and Garner will be hoping for first-team opportunities.


Manchester United appoint new youth team coach

Manchester United have appointed Travis Binnion as their new Under-18 coach, with Neil Ryan to assist Neil Wood with the Under-23s.

Binnion previously worked with the Under-16s following his arrival from Sheffield United in November 2019. Binnion oversaw the development of Harry Maguire and Dominic Calvert-Lewin at Bramall Lane before he was brought to United by the academy head Nick Cox, who was also previously at Sheffield United.

Ryan replaced Kieran McKenna as the U18 coach three years ago but has moved up to the U23s for the new season. The U23 squad is expected to be younger than last season, with the majority of the older players scheduled to leave on loan.

United have planned for there to be more 'flexibility' between the U23s and U18s, with Ryan the obvious link between the two squads. Quinton Fortune, who assisted Wood, left to join Reading's first-team coaching staff last year.

Jose Mourinho 'identifies' Eric Bailly as summer target for AS Roma

It claims Mourinho is still very fond of Bailly from their time at Old Trafford together and he would love a reunion this window.


'A load of rubbish' - Paul Parker hammers Marcus Rashford for poor club form despite injury struggles

Former United defender Paul Parker has hammered Marcus Rashford for his club form at the end of last season and suggested his underlying injury issues aren't a valid excuse.

"Marcus Rashford was very lucky to start so many games last season, he was really very poor," Parker told Express Sport.

"I think there was a little bit of sentiment coming into it that he shouldn’t have been playing. I kept hearing that he’s injured, he’s carrying this injury – a load of rubbish.

"Today’s footballers don’t have to carry any injuries. During my time, yes, because we needed that to make up our wages.

"And we were worried that if we missed a game through injury then somebody else would come in and we wouldn’t get back in if the team did well, but not in today’s world.

"I don’t really want to hear about him carrying injuries. If he was carrying injuries, the player would’ve stopped or the manager wouldn’t play him because the squads are bigger now.

"So he has to prove that he can play regularly for Manchester United because he was poor. Mason Greenwood finished the season brilliantly so he’ll be disappointed if he doesn’t start the season.

"He needs a decent pre-season as such, as he mostly will get now from not going to the Euros."

Louis van Gaal expected to return as Netherlands manager

Former United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to make a return to senior management with the Netherlands.

PSG 'believe' they can sign Paul Pogba for £50m this summer

Could this be the summer Paul Pogba finally leaves United?

Rumours of a summer switch to Paris Saint-Germain continue with an article by Get Football News France suggesting a £50m bid could be enough to secure his services this window.

It says any move relies on PSG selling players this summer, but they could finance a move for the United star.

Paul Pogba 'seduced' by PSG transfer

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have made Paul Pogba their next target in the transfer market and the Manchester United man is 'seduced' by the idea of playing for his hometown side.

That's according to the latest report from L'Equipe, via the Daily Mail, where it's stated Pogba is next in line on PSG's shopping list following the signings of Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi and Sergio Ramos.

Crucially, Mauricio Pochettino's side are said to have not been put off by United's valuation of Pogba and are prepared to pay the £51m fee it's reported that the club are demanding for his services.

Tottenham to deny Harry Kane summer transfer

Tottenham have decided not to sell Harry Kane this summer amid interest from Manchester City.

Kane, 27, outlined his desire for a transfer earlier this year and described City playmaker Kevin de Bruyne as a 'striker's dream', but Spurs are understood to have privately agreed to deny Kane a move before the transfer window closes.

City reportedly submitted a £100million bid for Kane and were furious it was reported in the middle of the European Championship. Sources at both City and Spurs denied an offer was submitted, but third-party sources insisted a bid was made and that the clubs did not want to distract Kane while he was on England duty.

Kane is contracted to Spurs until 2024 and collected the Premier League Golden Boot and Playmaker award last season. The England captain's high stock, as well as the length on his contract and the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, are prohibitive to a deal this summer.
