    MP SORRY

    A Tory MP has backtracked on comments suggesting Marcus Rashford should spend more time "perfecting his game" rather than getting involved in "politics".

    LBC reports Natalie Elphicke made the comment in a private message to MPs.

    The Dover MP shared her comment after Rashford missed a penalty during England's Euros 2020 final loss to Italy.

    The message read: "They lost – would it be ungenerous to suggest Rashford should have spent more time perfecting his game and less time playing politics."

    However, Elphicke took Twitter to congratulate the England team following a backlash from other members of Parliament.

    GRIEZ TO GO?

    Man United target Antoine Griezmann is thought to be keen on an Atletico Madrid return, according to reports.

    The wantaway Barcelona star is reported to be a transfer target for the Red Devils and Chelsea.

    And Spanish outlet Sport (via the Express) claims both clubs are in a race to sign the player who netted 13 goals in 36 LaLiga games last term.

    However, it is reported the France star's preference is to move back to Diego Simeone's side who won Spain's top-flight league title last term.

    It is claimed Barca are unlikely to sell Griezmann to their LaLiga rivals despite their wish to get his salary off their wage bill.

    MURAL DEFACED

    A mural created in honour of Marcus Rashford was defaced less than an hour after Italy's defeat of England in the Euro 2020 final.

    Gareth Southgate's side were beaten by the Azzurri on penalties with Rashford and Jadon Sancho among three players who missed from the spot.

    A giant portrait of the Red Devils star can be found near Copson Street in Withington on the wall of the Coffee House Cafe.

    The piece was painted in tribute to the striker's efforts to tackle child food poverty.

    However, graffiti has been daubed across the artwork following England's loss.

    RED MISSED

    England manager Gareth Southgate has revealed the biggest regret in his career was not playing for Manchester United.

    The Three Lions boss, 50, revealed he had two dreams as a boy.

    One, he achieved, playing for his country. The other was to step out at Old Trafford for the Red Devils.

    Southgate appeared on BT Sport's Meet the Managers series, when he was asked what his proudest moment was as a player.

    "My England debut because that is what I wanted to do since I was small," Southgate said.

    "I had two goals. I wanted to play for England and Manchester United actually. I never got the chance to play for Manchester United. One out of two wasn't bad."

    DEVIL DEFENCE

    MANCHESTER UNITED are set to try and sign Italy right-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo after Euro 2020, according to reports.

    The Napoli defender has been sensational for Roberto Mancini's men this summer as the Azzurri have made it all the way to the final.

    According to Il Napolista, the Red Devils have been alerted to the 27-year-old after he revealed during the Euros that he likes the Premier League.

    The move for Di Lorenzo is said to be Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's way of bringing in some competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.

    But if they are to prize him away from Napoli then they will have to stump up £17million.

    TEDDY PICKY

    Manchester United legend Teddy Sheringham has questioned if the Red Devils would be better off without Paul Pogba.

    "It’s a funny situation, isn’t it?” he told The United Stand. “He’s got a year to go and could go on a free and go and get himself an absolute fortune – as if they don’t earn enough money now.

    “I think if United or Ole got vibes that’s what he was trying to do, I’m sure he’d try to sell him now and get as much as he could for him.

    “Whether that’s the right thing or the wrong thing. He’s sometimes played in midfield and sometimes been left out, but if you’re a top player you don’t get left out.”

    SMALL MATTER

    Manchester United are keeping tabs on Everton wonderkid Thierry Small, according to reports.

    The Toffees starlet, 16, has yet to sign a professional contract with his Premier League side.

    Next month he turns 17 and will be able to sign full terms with the club.

    But until then, he could be tempted into a move.

    Back in January, he became the youngest Everton player when he appeared in the FA Cup win against Sheffield Wednesday.

    Since then, a host of clubs have registered their interest in the youth star.

    United are one of those, but will reportedly face competition from Arsenal.

    REAL DEAL

    Raphael Varane is 'very close' to joining Manchester United, according to Diario AS journalist Edu Cornago.

    The French international's contract at Real Marid expires next summer.

    And Real Madrid will be reluctant to lose the centre half on a free transfer in a year's time.

    And Cornago has claimed Varane is desperate to link up with Manchester United on social media.

    He tweeted: “The Varane-United agreement is very close to being produced. Varane welcomes the option of going to Manchester.”

    BACK TO SPAIN

    Ex-Manchester United wonderkid Arnau Puigmal has left the club after the expiration of his contract, according to his Instagram.

    A post shared by Arnau Puigmal Martínez (@arnaupuigmal8)

    Puigmal, 20, was highly thought of at Old Trafford but was overlooked for the first team by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    He starred in midfield for the U23 team last season, but believes his future lays elsewhere.

    Captioning an image on Instagram of his unveiling, Puigmal revealed: “Very happy and excited to announce my signing with this great club. The work starts now, let’s [email protected]!”

    HORROR SHOW

    MANCHESTER UNITED star Fred was lucky not to have been shown red against Argentina in the Copa America final.

    The midfielder lunged in on Gonzalo Montiel in Saturday's final after just two minutes.

    Uruguayan referee Esteban Ostojich chose to be lenient on the 28-year-old and hand out only a booking.

    But River Plate defender Montiel was left with a nasty wound from the tackle.

    Over the course of the game, his ankle became more and more bloodied – yet he played on nonetheless.

    RUB NOT TO

    Manchester United risk losing out on Portugal midfielder Ruben Neves, according to reports.

    The Expressclaims that rivals Arsenal are already in advanced negotiations with his club Wolves over a move.

    Eurosport journalist Dean Jones recently told the Football Terrace Podcast that the Red Devils had entered talks with the former Porto player.

    However, it is now said the Gunners are in pole position for Neves' signature.

    United face losing Nemanja Matic this summer and could be forced into a midfield shake-up if wantaway Paul Pogba moves to PSG.

    Wolves are said to be demanding £45million for Neves' services.

    POG OFF

    Manchester United star Paul Pogba wants to move to PSG this summer, according to reports.

    The World Cup winner only has one year left on his contract and the Red Devils could be tempted to cash in on the playmaker, rather than lose him for nothing.

    Pogba, 28, joined United in 2016 for £89million from Juventus.

    But many fans and pundits have criticised the Frenchman, insisting he has failed to live up to expectations.

    In recent weeks, a move to PSG has been mooted with the Ligue 1 giants desperate to make a statement in the transfer window.

    The French giants have already secured the signatures of Sergio Ramos and are set to announced Gianluigi Donnarumma soon.

    And Foot Mercato have claimed Pogba wants to follow them.

    CAR BLIMEY

    Man Utd coach Michael Carrick has told the Red Devils players in the England squad to enjoy the build-up to the Euro 2020 final.

    Speaking to the club's website, he said: "To be honest, I don't think there's loads to say. I think they're in a good place [so it's] pretty much 'same as'.

    "Yes, of course, it's a one-off game in terms of finally getting your hands on the trophy but really it's still make or break just like the last-16 was, just like the semi-final was, and they handled that pretty well.

    "So I don't think they need much of a message from me apart from do the same, carry on the same, be positive, enjoy the build-up, but enjoy the game for what it is and don't play it for the occasion.

    "I've seen a few messages on that, about how actually everyone else enjoys it but as a player you've got such a role to play and a responsibility, you have to go out there and perform and you don't get caught up in what the rest of the country is doing.

    "You have more fun at times as a fan but I think the boys will enjoy it finally if they win on Sunday night."

    RONBELIEVABLE

    Man Utd legend Cristiano Ronaldo could reportedly be on his way out of Juventus this summer.

    But in a blow for the Red Devils, should he decide to depart Turin, he would be open to linking up with Paris Saint-Germain.

    According to Foot Mercato, the Portugal international has been impressed by Les Parisiens’ transfer business so far.

    PSG have already signed Georginio Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi.

    And they are closing in on securing Gianluigi Donnarumma’s services.

    Should Juve decide to cash in on Ronaldo, they claim he would be willing to join the Ligue 1 giants.

    SAN THE MAN

    Jadon Sancho will improve Manchester United stars Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani when he arrives at Old Trafford, according to the winger's former coach.

    Ex-Watford coach Louis Lancaster told the Stretford Paddock YouTube channel: "Firstly, he's going to bring goals and assists. He's not a one-season wonder anymore, he's proved that, he's been consistent.

    "His numbers are off the charts — I think he's getting one goal or assist per game. He's making the most successful dribbles in Europe, the most entries into the box, so that's where he is going to excel.

    "But I think Jadon's greatest quality is that he can add to other people's games.

    "So though you have spent money and signed one player, I think you're going to get a better Bruno [Fernandes], a better [Paul] Pogba, Cavani.

    "I think that's his greatest skill set, adding value to other people's games."

    MAD WORLD

    ROO CAN DO IT

    Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney has issued England's 'one warning' about Italy ahead of tonight's final.

    Speaking in his column for The Times, Rooney said: "I think we’re favourites. Quality wise England have enough and mentally you can see the players are in a good place.

    "My one warning would be that we can’t get caught up in how Italy play, the way they’ll try and slow the game down."

    Before adding: "If I were Gareth I’d be telling England’s players to get the ball down and play quick, keep the tempo high, keep the Italians working, tire them out.

    "In 2014, Uruguay were able to break up the game and suck us in to playing the way they wanted — but this England team is more streetwise.

    "Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini are great players — but not the quickest. I’m sure Gareth and Steve Holland will be looking at Alvaro Morata’s goal for Spain in Italy’s semi-final.

    "It showed that if you can get bodies around those two great centre-backs, making sharp movements in behind them, they’re not comfortable.

    "If England can get Raheem making his inside runs, and Harry and other quick players moving down their sides, Chiellini and Bonucci won’t enjoy it one bit."

    GARD OF HONOUR

    Jesse Lingard has revealed he will be heading back for pre-season duty at Man Utd after his impressive loan spell at West Ham.

    Lingard's five-day quarantine from his holiday in Mykonos is over, and he will be back at Carrington on Monday.

    Speaking to Lions Den about his vacation, he said: "It’s much needed, they’re long seasons, I played quite a few games at the back end of the season.

    "I’d love to be at the Euros, but the rest is important so I’ve been training at Mykonos to get myself prepared to go back to Manchester United.

    "I got back on Monday, I’ve been quarantining, but it’s day five today, I got the negative test result. I’ll watch the game tonight and then go in training tomorrow."

    ON THE PAUL

    Paul Pogba will reportedly make a decision on his Manchester United future over the coming week.

    The France international has just one year left on his contract at Old Trafford and it remains to be seen whether he will extend his stay.

    United are keen to kept the player at the club, but know they must shift him on this summer if he refuses to sign a new deal.

    It is understood that Paris Saint-Germain are eyeing up a possible move to bring Pogba back to his native country.

    And according to TF1, Pogba will decide imminently whether he wishes to join PSG or agree a contract extension.

    OLE TRAFFORD

    Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has wished England well ahead ahead of their Euro 2020 final against Italy.

    Red Devils stars Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, Lukes Shaw and incoming signing Jadon Sancho are all part of Gareth Southgate's squad.

    Speaking to United's website, Solskjaer said: "Enjoy it, of course, be focused.

    "Of course, we’ve kept in touch about enjoying the victory and then then next morning, get on with the next one. Nothing becomes history as quickly as a football game.

    "It’s history and you have to just look forwards to the next [one] and be ready.

    "Luke and Harry, it’s just recovery, Marcus it’s train well, show a good attitude and show Gareth that you are ready."

    OWEN GOAL

    Former Man Utd striker Michael Owen has backed England to win the European Championship for the first time.

    The ex-Three Lions star believes Gareth Southgate's men will beat Italy 2-1 in the Euro 2020 final, with England to score late in extra-time.

    He told Bet Victor: "Now, from a teams point of view, I think that England are going to go with a normal formation of a back four. The only big question mark I’ve got for Gareth Southgate is who plays in that attacking role?

    "Is it going to be [Jadon] Sancho or is it going to be [Bukayo] Saka, who Gareth Southgate has turned to on most occasions.

    "I think he’s probably going to go with the same line up as the one he played in the semi-finals against Denmark. From Italy’s point of view, I must admit, I didn’t expect them to reach this stage of the tournament.

    "However, they have been the stand-out team with some unbelievable team performances and they are a real match for this England team.”

    SPECIAL JUAN

    Man Utd boss Ole GUnnar Solskjaer has revealed why Juan Mata and Lee Grant were offered new contracts.

    He told the club’s website: “We are a young squad and that’s been part of the thinking.

    “We have the professionals that can be an example day in and day out. Our young lads think they know it because we bring the up through the Academy and they do learn good habits.

    “But then they come into the first team and see World Cup winners like Juan and the way he conducts himself, even if he doesn’t play.

    “He didn’t play as much as he would have liked to last year but he’s never ever letting himself or his team down with his attitude.

    “So [they are] good examples and Lee, as well, knows he’s got good goalkeepers ahead of him but the example he sets is something we have to reward them [for] and it makes the group better, and they’re still good players.”

    NO DON DEAL

    Man Utd midfielder Donny van de Beek will NOT be used in any deal to bring Raphael Varane to Old Trafford.

    It has been claimed that the former Real Madrid target could be heading to Spain in a swap transfer with Varane going the other way.

    But transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has stated that the Dutchman will be staying at the Theatre of Dreams.

    He tweeted: “Donny van de Beek has NOT been discussed between Manchester United and Real Madrid as player included in the negotiations for Raphael Varane.

    #MUFC #Real Man Utd asked for Varane one week ago on direct contact – but there’s still no official bid, waiting for Real price tag.”

    MORNING, UNITED FANS

    Paul Pogba is now being linked with PSG – while Tottenham want Jesse Lingard if United pursue a huge cash-plus-players bid for Harry Kane.

    That's the pick of the transfer gossip from around Old Trafford, with Italy full-back  full-back Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Denmark central defender Joachim Anderson also in the spotlight

    RMC Sport claim PSG have contacted France midfielder Pogba's representatives.

    But United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains keen to keep the 28-year-old as he enters the final year of his contract.

    The latest talk over Manchester City target Kane as he prepares to lead England's Euro 2020 final bid against Italy is even more intriguing.

    Football Insider suggest new Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo rates his striker at £150million but might consider £100m plus players.

    And with Lingard a sensational loan hit for West Ham last season, Santo is reportedly keen on the midfielder who just missed a Three Lions' squad spot for the Euros.

    Meanwhile, United are also said to be rivalling Tottenham for Lyon’s Denmark ace Andersen.

    And Solskjaer is said to be undeterred by the £25.7million valuation of the ex-Fulham loanee, 25.

    Lastly, Napoli’s Azzurri hero Di Lorenzo will be under the eye of both United and Chelsea in the Euro final at Wembley tonight.

    ‘UNITED PONDER UMTITI BID’

    Manchester United are reportedly considering bidding for Barcelona centre-back Samuel Umtiti, according to El Gol Digital.

    The Frenchman is said to be available for purchase in the current market, with the Catalan giants desperately attempting to reduce their wage budget.

    Umtiti is believed to have rejected the chance to terminate his deal at Camp Nou in exchange for a compensation package, but the defender could still be on the move this summer.

    Umtiti has struggled with injuries over the last three seasons but was a vital player for Barcelona during his first two years with the Catalan giants.
